Thanks GB, much appreciated. Just to clarify: Attach the red and black ring connectors to the battery and the single red from the switch to the fuse block? That sounds too simple.

Earl,

Red and Black ring terminals to battery and lone red wire to any switched power source. If the fuse block is switched (only provides power when the key is on), then that will work.


thanks,
-Brian

How worried should I be about getting the on/off switch wet? It doesn't look particularly waterproof, compared to the rest of the kit.
The switch will stand up to the elements.

I wouldnt take it underwater (looks like your KLR might be capable of it ), but it will hold up. There are silicone sprays available that can help to seal it if your expecting to get really wet. They can be messy so if you go that route be careful of overspray.

thanks for the feedback and review.

Wish it would warm up a some here... we got blowing snow at the moment


Thanks,
-Brian

Thanks for the confirmation Brian. Simple enough. I'm slow but will post some pics when complete. I'm working on a couple of other additions to the Wee at the same time.

Nice to sea the connectors & on/off switch upgraded, the cheesey OLD home depot connectors were a joke as well as the switch.

RIDE ON!

I have a set mounted fender height on my DRZ that work really well for me. Just removed the side reflectors and bolted them up. They are small enough to not interfere with steering at full lock. Not sure if thats an option for you or not on the XR? The MM10's are light enough to bolt on to just about anywhere. Before you settle on a permanent home double check that the surface is rigid enough to avoid heavy vibration at speed or over rough stuff.

When its not obvious where to install them, creativity goes a long way.

thanks,
-Brian

Tiger 800

We have put together a hardware kit to mount the MM10's on the Tiger 800 very near where the OEM Aux lights would be.

It makes for a simple and clean (near factory look) install.





These hardware kits are rust proof and make it easy to install the light kit using exsisting mounting points on the Tiger 800 (also available for the 08- 10 Kawaski Versys).

We are working on more and hope to have more bike specific mounts available soon.



thanks,
-Brian

Brian - will this work on the Tiger 800 XC? If so I will be placing and order for them. They look great.

The hardware kit will work equally well on the XC.

We do not.

We were working on this last year, but just not enough time in the day. At this point its safe to say we will let our reputation and feedback speak for the MM10's.

thanks,

Sorry we do not have a good ETA for the MM8 light kit. We do have some that were on demo bikes that may be coming off soon. If so, I will offer them up here for a discounted price.


thanks,
