Info needed

I am almost ready to pull the trigger, but need some info. I will be installing on a DRZ 400. From what I have seen the electrical is PnP. So if I do not purchase the dimmer, will I be able to switch low and high beam or do I have to have the dimmer module to do that? And if that is the case does it work on the factory switch? Thanks!

Electrical Question

Sanjoh: My "vintage" XL 600 has an AC headlight system. Any solutions?

On mine I have the bottom light set for low beam at about 50% of max (and it's about as good as the stock light on hi-beam!), and, with my factory switch, I can then go to full on on both lights, which is incredible. I also run a pair of Solstice 10s aimed pretty wide so that on low beam I still have the sides of the road covered for the pesky critters that are out there. I also have both the fairing lights and the Solstice lights on their own switches so I can turn them off for starting or when I'm running the heated grips and the heated jacket. I really, finally, feel I have adequate - great, actually - lights on my DR650.

Any pics of your setup? I'm putting one of the fairings on a DR350 and am curious how much the Solstices help. Right now I'm just planning on running the fairing with two lights but you've got me thinking of adding some lights to help illuminate the sides.

So you need the dimmer module to accomplish that?

That's my belief. Course, I suspect if you had an in with electrons (which I decidedly do not) you might be able to do it some other way.

See posts 169, 170 and 171 of this thread. The Solstice lights don't show up very well, because that wasn't what I was trying to show. I mounted them where the front side reflectors usually are (probably in violation of several laws). In post 171 you can just see the right one from behind.

Has anyone mounted one on a KTM 690 Enduro? Got any pics? The stock lighting on my bike is easily the worst i've even seen. Would the stock signals need to be relocated at all?

Subscribing so I don't lose this thread. A DR is in our future and I love this setup.

I was concerned about the fairing getting in the way in the more knarly stuff, it didn't.

Used the lights at night to gather some firewood

I like mine. It's definitely functional day or night!

I am very very impressed by the product that has been delivered to me.

Exceptional customer service, quick shipping, and on time, and very prompt pre-sales.



This will be mounted on 1993 Suzuki DR350S kick-start only model. I will be posting mounting pictures later this week..

Thank you.

Ktm 690

How do these work ( fit ) on a KTM 690.
Which mounting brackets for the fairing are recommended ?
I'll be using two 60's.
I see you can get them without the mounting holes drilled.
I'm sure with some fabrication these will fit on the 690.
