I do kind of wish there was a horizontal cutoff though - it seems like I'm illuminating things that are a bit high up in front of me (trees, etc). I do have them aimed a bit downwards...

Here's a couple of pics of the MM 10s mounted on my '06 Wee. The brackets bolted up to the fender mounts on the forks slick as can be:





Have yet to try them at night but my buddy says they are definitely visible during the day when he is riding the lead.

In either case, we do have a few we hold back. Your replacement will be on the way tomorrow via USPS Priority Mail.

PM'd also.

It's not quite a year later, and I think my original MM12 (the non-defective, non-replacement, original) is going bad. The bottom row of LEDs are putting out a bluish light (the top row is still bright white), and the bottom row is dimmer.

I understand the MM12s are no longer made. Is my best solution to replace the whole set with MM8s?

I've been happy with the performance of the lights, but the durability may be an issue.

I just got back from a large Vstrom rally near Deals Gap, and I got many questions about the lights. I passed your company info along to a lot of folks.

Jeff,

I believe we have both the MM12 and the MM8 on hand for warranty replacement.

Please send us an email to info@mondomotos.com and Kris can check your order date and figure out the best solution.

thanks,
-Brian

While this isnt an LED style lamp, I wanted to post a note here that we are now carrying the full line of Givi products including the Trekker S310 lights seen in the pics below.





The complete Trekker S310 light kit retails for $211 USD

Our price $186 USD

The ADV5 Discount Code applies to the Trekker lights making the final price $176.70 USD

The Trekkers are Halogen lights and designed for use on bikes that have electrical power to spare and the mount directly to crash bars.

More info can be found on our website

MondoMotos Trekker S310

We will be updating our "Gear" thread very soon to include the S310 and lots more of the Givi line of products. Until then if there is something in particular you are looking for send me a PM or email us @ info@mondomotos.com.

Thanks,
-Brian

Just ordered some MM10's for my Bandit. Removed the stock mirrors and went to handlebar mounted DoubleTake mirrors in hopes to use those perches as a mounting location. Anybody have any suggestions for that?

Here's the bike:

Quick wiring question:

Wiring the lights to a fuzeblock that already has a wire to be used for switched power, can I use that wire and disregard the mondo wire or fuse the two together then splice into a switched source?

Here's the bike:

Once you have the lights in hand, you will most likely be able to figure something out to mount them on the fairing. Hard to tell from looking at the pic, but I'd guess you will have to remove the mirror mounts and attach the light bracket in its place?

Thanks,
-Brian

If I understand the question: The light power wire (red wire w/ring terminal) and the switch power wire (single red wire) can indeed share a power source. Its not an ideal situation, but so long as the source is fused and able to handle the extra current (less than 1amp) you should be fine.

Thanks,
-Brian

Sorta, red single wire and single switched power wire of a fuseblock. Choices:

-Either cut the red single wire away and rely on the FB's wire only
-Splice red single and FB switched power wire together then into a switched source
- Or both the single red and FB switched power wire are individually spliced into a switched source.

I sounds like #2 is the viable option but I figured I'd ask around.

EDIT: what I did was: took the red switched power wire and connected it to the FB as well. Used the FB's switched power wire and connected it to a switched source. Lights shut down after I turn the bike off.

On a 2008 r1200gs do you think I will need a CAN-BUS adapter? If so do you have a line on where i may get one?

Just trying to get everything in line so I can order all at once. I am not running much else besides a phone charger and possiblely a sena charger or two. But would like to add heated gear next winter. Sorry if it sounds dumb, electrics are not my forte.

thanks
