If you guys need a headlight, I've got a EnduroTech Dual.5 that fits 2014 KTM I'm selling. I bought it on a whim, tried it out on the street and then ended up not being able to ride at night like I thought I would (wife and kids), so now it's back in the box, not a scratch on it. Comparable to the Baja Designs Squadron, except this one has 5 LED's instead of 4, and it has high and low beam. Drop-in replacement, plugs right in to the stock harness and the high/low switch works just like the stock light. It's adds some serious bling if that's what you're into. ;) Message me if you're interested and I'll send pictures.

Here's the manufacturer info. Installation on the 2014 is slightly different than shown in the video, but super easy. Perfect drop in replacement for the OEM light, 3 screws and a plug and you're done:

That explains why I had 2 thick spacers (1 in each tube) and then only 1 thin spacer on one side. I thought the factory left one of the spacers out, I didn't bother to take an overall measurement with the springs, anyhow I was in there to change out the springs to heaver ones, hopefully it don't make much of a difference or maybe that's why I crashed in the desert (see above post).

Blinding, even in the daytime in the middle of the desert.

The manufacturer specs the light as 1800 lumen on low and 4500 lumen on high. I have one and really like it. The low light is angled down so that it doesn't annoy other road users and the high is bright enough to do offroad riding at a reasonable speed. I think the design of light looks great too.

What would you consider "reasonable" speed? 70mph in the desert? I'm still looking for the be-all end-all LED to replace my old 7" HID racelight. I do agree that the Enduro Tech looks good and having separate hi/lo beams vs just dimming the light while keeping the same aim (like if I were to use a Squadron) is appealing. I've also considered stuffing a Trucklite phase 7 LED into my housing which would actually be legal as opposed to kinda looking legal, but I'm afraid that I'd be taking a step backwards.

I ride in Japan and there isn't any dessert so I don't know how the light would perform in those conditions. I've used it on single track and Forrest fire roads at speeds up to about 60mph with no visibility issues...

I have two ADV monster model 60's with a dimmer and they work great. I have one pointed a bit lower and the other straight ahead. I also have them hooked up to the stock headlight switch so high and low beam with a flick. I used to have trail tech headlight but installed the LED into the mask and only use the LED as my lights now, not just back up. As for off road riding I am very happy with them, didn't feel I was out running them. I was in the sandblast rally and the last stage was run at nigh. I had the second fastest time on that stage, 30'sec behind the leader and I had to pass two people. I do know know the speeds I was going but fast enough lol, or not fast enough for first

Figured I should chime in since I'm running the same lights (model 60's + stock 690er headlight), the light they put out is for me only enough up to 70-80km/h. Plenty of light nearby (as with most leds), but in order to get a longer throw one needs a larger reflector. The enduro tech light (judging from videos/photos) seems to be roughly the same, blinding amounts of light close to the rider, but no proper beam pattern.

I am no expert with lights or beam pattern, just what I read from other peoples input on them lol. But I can say for sure I can use them well above 80km on and off road as for how fast I do not know. I have used the, on the highway at 120km and they seem to be fine, but that is a road I drive a lot. They are better then the trail tech X2 off road light I had, removed the bulbs and installed the LED in there place. Now the person how won the rally and the night stage ran two 60W HID spots. Now they have a better beam/ distance then the LED's I have but take a bit to warm up and can not dim the output. So for a race they are better but everyday the LED's are way better. Also his one light was the same as my two with the dimmer, he had two one on the bike and one on his helmet. So is there one light that can do it all? Maybe not yet but soon I bet but at a price.

Anyone have a link to decent graphics kits for the 2014 bikes. I bought and all white plastics set and I'm looking for something nice to put on them. All the six days graphics I find are for the 2013 and older bikes.

A helmet light is a must if you want to go fast in the dirt at night. It allows you see where you are looking and not just where the bike is pointing.
There a lot of chinese made helmet lights that work well and are reasonably priced.
http://www.lightmalls.com/bike-lights-headlamps

This is the one I am currently using. It puts out almost light as the Advmonster model 60 light.

I have used this one and it works well.

Call Ben or Matt at Ride PG. They are making matching front and rear fender kit for my 14 500 EXC with stock graphics.

Here is a kink to a 14 XCW kit on their web site, but they can custom color anything for your white plastic.
