AdvMonster Pr0n

I'll mount them up when I get back home.... I have a set of 60's on the Bars, but it will certainly be overkill. May just leave them on for a few rides of ridiculous???

Kudos AdvMonster!!! AWESOME:


I need a tiny AdvMonster sticker to replace the Cyclops sticker...

More pic's to follow after they are mounted

Are there 4 wires on that ADVmonster rotary switch?

Model 60 and 30

I've got a Model 60 and a Model 30 on my Dakar. I'd highly recommend them, they're incredible!! I went with the Waterproof Wireless LED Dimmer with High Beam Bypass, so that I could control the lights from the handlebars OR the tent. I spend a lot of time camping in the middle of nowhere and sometimes ya need to flip on the yard lights to scare a bear away... or just to use as a night light to set up camp & turn the lights out from the tent. The dimming feature is great for running the lights at 15-20% around town or camp, then blasting them to 80-100% for off-road/highway. The high beam bypass is pretty slick to!

As far as the flood and beam pattern I think it's wise to have one of each, for obvious reasons. The '30 is pretty tight, and definitely throws. The '60 is just retarded, and no one needs that much light ... but boy its nice to have when you want to see everything.
I've had them for almost a year now, and hammered them with everything from pouring rain, ice & snow, nasty vibrations, and hot sun. No problems so far.
Love them, and would highly recommend them to all you guys that are considering a set.
Great price, great service, and quick shipping!

Well done ADVmonster!

Recommended led setup for KTM 500 xcw

Sanjoh

What led light setup would you recommend for a plated 2013 KTM 500 xcw, used for dualsport riding 30/70 hwy/offroad .

Is it better to have just one flood adapted to the oem shroud, or would a combination of flood and spot direct the light in a more useful pattern ?

How does your 60 led flood compare to the squadron from baja designs.
I note in the specs they both produce 3600 lumens, and apprear to use the same led's but in different housings ?
However, your 60 led draws 28watt and the BD squadron 42watt.
Wondering why the difference ?

Can you email the diagrams to sandjoh@gmail.com.

I don't think the Clearwater product will work with our lights but I would be happy to investigate.

I would recommend the dualsport fairing.



Rode a bunch of single track and forest service roads in the mountains and the fairing never got in the way. Even with steep hills

The Z is a bit portly for the tight uphill stuff.

Our lights are significantly smaller than the squadron, which means lighter. Different led drivers run at different efficiencies which may explain the differences in power consumption. BD does offer a lifetime warranty that you pay for up front, ADVmonster offers a one year warranty at typically less than 1/3 the price of the BD squadron.

I have not seen the lights side x side so I can not speak to comparison of the light output or beam patterns.

Have you seen this? One Model 60

I have twin 60's in my Dual Sport fairing. On low I have only the bottom one on at about 60% and it's pointed pretty low (with my two solstice 10's pointed pretty wide to light up the roadside so I don't run into any elk!) and that set up is great for low beam work and doesn't bother oncoming cars. On high, with both 60's on full power WOW!

What's the most popular light configuration in the dualsport fairing.
Spot, or flood, output ?
My KTM 500 xcw has a 200w alternator so I guess it could handle two 60's.



Have you seen this? One Model 60
If I only run one led lamp in the OEM housing, which would be the best choice for my application ?

and

The XCW only has an on/off switch for the lighting. No Hi/lo switch or relay. What extra switches would I need to run the led setup, assuming I use your dimmer.

I would recommend the Model 60 with a rotary dimmer. We can setup the electrics to be plug n play, just let me know what headlight connector you have.

The high beam switch is only needed if you want hi/low beam, the alternative is to rotate the rotary to full power when you need it. Otherwise any 12v switch will engage the high beam.

I have your lights on my Versys, and now my CRF230F. I'll be getting a set for my CRF250L and Suzuki TU250 soon. Nice product you have here.

Take a look at the cylindrical fresnel lenses. They won't be perfect, but they should flatten the beam pattern a lot.

Luxeon have a small one, get one and play ?
