Hmmm, lamp wire install on a motorcycle. I know somebody who's done that.

Nice looking KLR SteelB12. You got it working, then worry about cleaning up the wires later.

Sure would be nice to have the lights back on the bike and off the work bench

I had found that I was having the same issues, 2 things I did to solve it. First I made sure the lights were off when i started the bike. That moment of low voltage seemed to affect one lamp more than another. Second I put quick connectors on each lamp, so I could unplug a lamp and re sync the lights in very little time.

Hope this helps...

I have been using the "44" for the season and couldn't be happier. Using it with dimmer @ 30% of the max. power, I'm sure this helps with durability. I like those LED's and hope they'll last a while longer.
The out of sync with the built in dimmer LED's I didn't like, switched to "44" as soon as they became available....

Last thing is to check your voltage on the backside of the lights connector with the light turned on , you might have voltage drop some where in your circuit.
One test is to isolate each lamp and see if they work fine individually, You might have a weak ground or power supply if they work fine solo and have issues running the pair.

I did 7000 miles on my lights last month and only one time did the 30's go out of sync, only 2 times for the entire season.

Sanjoh I have 2 questions

Hey John, (Sanjoh), I bought the 3 mode floods a while ago, I think they are the 3mode 24 Floods, it is on the box's that they came in which are in the garage . The weekend before I was to put them on my bike my engine exploded, literally and I have been saving hard for a long time to be able to buy a replacement engine. Now I have the new engine and am pulling the old buggered one out. Better used as an anchor, though not heavy enough for that either.

I am wondering two things, so if you could please post back here or PM me I would be very happy to hear from you.

? #1. Can I trade these two (still in the box's) brand new lights in as a credit towards buying 2 new model 44 floods ?

I was a little hesitant to use the brackets that came with these 3 mode model 24 floods, as the brackets looked just a little too light. This was a minor reason why I had an initial delay in mounting them and then the engine screwed things up.

so my second question is,

? #2. When will the new generation / stronger brackets be available and could I get a pair of the stronger brackets with the model 44 floods ?

Many thanks to ya John
