Right now I have yellows on my LEDS, but you can get blue and clear. Mine have some noticeable road-wear and I should be getting some new ones myself, so as to how difficult it is to get them off, someone else can comment, and I would appreciate a good tip on how to start the process myself, lol. Tweezers? :). See link below. I know they USED to have yellow, I hope they still carry it.

So the Xpels are like a plexiglass slip-on to the glass lens on the light?

OK....I did a youtube search on Xpel and I see it is a film type of product. Sort of like a window tint type of film. I thought it was more like a clear lens cap like you would install over the light housing.

Any answers to the question on the rotary LED switch and how it mounts to the bike?

OK...ummmm....looking for something that will give me a bit cleaner install like the Clearwaters use. Something a bit more clean mountable instead of Velcro or 2-sided tape. Love the lights! Already have a pair of Twin Headlight Ernie brackets for the Gen 2 KLR650. Just trying to figure out the rest so I can get this rolling! I'll have to sleep on that ADVmonster rotary switch. Thinking I may be able to panel mount that thing but will I be able to turn it with gloves? I can't wait to order the ADVmonster lights!

It's a very big knob about one inch across. You can adjust it with one single finger. Gloved or not.












That's what SHE said.

And once you've set a lower setting to be traffic friendly, you don't need to change it. High beams give you full power.

I have read most of this entire thread over the past week. I do all city and or slab riding and would like somethng like the 44's for daytime visibility. I just don't think I would ever need all the light 60's give! I understand running these at 100% at night on city streets would not be very considerate of oncoming vehicles so you recommend one of your LED Dimmers with High Beam Bypass which sounds promising. I don't think I need another key FOB in my collection so I was looking at the Rotary one. I have also checked out the Skene product also. A few questions for you and sorry if they have been answered somewhere else in this great thread.
Where or how exactly does the Rotary LED Dimmer mount? To the bars? On a panel?
I understand the Model 44 Flood Light is a glass lens. Does the Xpel Light Protection slip-on to the flood light housing to protect the glass from breakage? Is the Xpel a replacement lens?
The rotary dimmer is surface mount. You can mount it anywhere you have the space. I like mine mounted behind either the brake or clutch (if equipped) master. Like this


The xpel lens protection is a product developed by 3m to protect aircraft windshields. It is not a replacement lens, it is attached with adhesive and becomes permanent about 20 minutes after application. Here is what it is made of.

the plastic knob on the dimmer broke off. Is there anything I can splice in to replace the switch? It still works but the adjuster is flush to the housing and I can only turn it by sticking a key in there.

Sean-O.

How did you break the lens? Flying rock, or crash?

I always worry about trashing out my lights cause I tend to ride pretty close sometimes to the buddy in front of me to avoid dust. Plays hell on equipment though.

I found these GREAT covers for the lights I built and they also fit these Monster lights as well to protect them from rock hits and probably crashes to a lesser extent....will have to post a picture.

They are silicon and can be had in clear (which really let the light through pretty well too), or red. When installed they are kind of tight fitting so hold some air pressure as well and that really acts as a nice air cushion to keep them in one piece.

sanjoh, you might want to buy some of these and offer as an option too!

The clear ones are available from Caplugs and mostly used as masks for when plating or painting things. Real nice stretchy and tough 100% silicone so it stands up to heat real well too. I think they said up to 500 degrees?

Unfortunately to get them from Caplugs you have to buy a huge quantity.

The red ones are available through McMaster Carr and you still have to buy 10 but for only 1.60 apiece they are a great deal.

Here is the part number: 92805K47

I cut the red covers down about an inch as my two outside lights are not as long as the monster ones. Monster cover one is full length as delivered.

That is funny, maybe it is some sort of virus or disease?

I seem to be afflicted with the same thing and it comes on all of a sudden!
