The pinching action of the pivot bolt should hold the light.
You're right about the clearance issue... although it's never contacted yet, I'm sure it could - must come damn close under heavy braking. It's actually a very sturdy mount setup (uses thick aluminum plate). Am still playing around with mounting ideas, and have also been looking at headlight replacement options - using an M60 as an aux light looks to be cheaper and easier. Thnx for making these great lights available at a reasonable cost.

Fog lights

Got my new fog lights mounted up and moved my other lights to a new location. These things are sweet!

Those do look great!
Do you have any photos of the fog-light light-pattern on your garage wall?

...I wonder why these are in a square housing?

Not at the moment, will see if I can get the shop dark enough for a photo.

half the reason I bought these is because they are in a square housing. Im not really a fan of the round housings, I think these look great!

Waiting on some parts before I install lights. Can I use 12v battery charger for temp power, and not hurt the lights?

Any plans for a new round housing LED of around 85mm diameter?

The little dimmer I got from you guys works a treat and I like the main beam override feature

Installed my mm15s on my new GS. Should make good running lights without being obnoxiously bright.

Got my M30's the other day and mounted to the Ninja. Haven't had a chance to try them out other than in the driveway.






Low beam with dimmer on lowest setting...



High beam...

Sanjoh, which light would be the best replacement for the crappy stock headlight on a DR200SE? Strictly for off road use, so I don't need a DOT certified light.

I would go with the Model 60 and a rotary dimmer. You will be using less power than the stock headlight.
