44's on R1150R

Mounted on the fender using the existing bolt, just had to drill the hole in the mount slightly larger.



Rotary dimmer mounted on steering neck, accessible, but once I set the initial dimmed level I don't find the need to change it.

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.
Going by your recommendations, it seems two lamps as per the dualsport fairing is optimum.
If I don't run the fairing, what other mounting options would you suggest for two lamps on the KTM 500xcw
and
What configuration of two lamps would give the best light pattern, ie, one spot and and one flood etc....?

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

More pic's to follow after they are mounted
I have been fighting the HID lamps in this headlight ever since I bought my XR650R (it came with it on):



I see lamps to replace the top two in the image above, do you have a wider angle I could use for the 4" SC4? Inquiring minds want to know!

We don't offer a 4" light. Do you have a pic of the rear of the light? Might be able to easily adapt a third light in that position.

I'll try and get some pics of the housing opened up this weekend. There is room to spare for typical MR16 Halogens in the upper two spaces. Overall the housing is maybe 2.5 inches deep.

Depth should be fine.

Pics of the back?

Woa I Really like this, great job! I have a BD 8" La Paz Halogen light and I love the 8" racelight look but want LED efficiency. I'll be following this thread for more info on such conversions.


Also, can one order those flush mount adapters for your lights?
For instance, I have a TW200 with a 4x6 halogen headlight. I think one could make a replacement light with a lexan or other plastic (metal even) lense bolted into the stock mounting points. The key would be the flush mount kits. A model 30 for driving spot (possibly on dimmer) and 44 for flood on high beam could fit in the 4x6 and look good (imo).

Shipping fee at ADVMonster

After doing some research for driving lights and reading the posts here on ADVRider,
I just started to buy some lights on ADVMONSTER and had to stop shopping after I saw the ridiculously high shipping costs.

Have you paid to ship something yourself since the last price hike? I was amazed the last time I mailed a package how much the post office hiked rates. UPS is also expensive now too, no way around it, it seems.
I haven't bought lamps from ADVMonster in almost a year, kinda po'd at myself for missing the very recent sale price on the 30's.

Did you try putting in your Zip code? Shipping is quite reasonable.

We use USPS Priority or First Class mail.

You likely did not move through the checkout process far enough to get an estimate of shipping. Typical cost to ship a pair of lights to anywhere in the US is 7-12 usd.

12v fused source

Any other 12v fused source not mentioned in the documentation? That 12v wire coming from the rotary is a bit short to get anywhere. You mentioned the horn circuit. The horn switch won't work will it?

Since I am trying to wire with highbeam bypass do I need to go by some wire at Radio Shack and some type of spade connectors and run a hot to a relay of some sort from the battery hot and then run from relay to 12v marked on the rotary switch? I guess ground works the same. Bike is in pieces in the garage until I get this figured out.

Relay also? 44 divided by 12.5 = 3.52 x 1.25=4.4 10A inline fuse I guess?
