If anyone has a 9w or 11w one for sale get in touch. Bracket can be fractured as I'll be reenforcing it anyway.

Cheers, Andy

If I recall there has only been a 10watt spot, 24watt flood and an adjustable 24watt flood that have been discontinued. Then there is the current models, which are referred to by Model# not wattage consumption.
but I have been wrong before!

To monitor the state of the battery and the charging system. Also, on bikes with not-so-powerful alternators it will allow you to see when you've turned on too many electrical accessories, which could drain the battery.

OK, mine is pretty new (2010) and I keep it on the battery tender so I'm assuming everything is fine.
Never had any battery issues that I didn't see coming, well, once one died without notice.

My concern isnt a bad battery while in my garage. It's running heated grips, heated jacket, running lights and headlights. On a really cold, wet day, I want to know if my alternator is keeping up while cranking up the heated gear.

It's why led lights are popular.

Cool, I learned something I didn't know before. I'm a poor sunny weather summer rider only, so never worry about those things...

Does that mean in Rainy Vancouver you don't ride that much?

Yup - that's why I have LEDs as well. Less stress on the electrical system.

I have

2 x 44s at 1.8 amps each = 44 watts @ 4000 lumens
2 x 30 spots at .85 amps each = 20 watts @ 3000 lumens
2 x 30 wides (the old ones) at .85 amps each = 20 watts @ 3000 lumens

Total - 10,000 lumens, 84 watts, 7 amps total

They seriously light up my night
