I've just installed the model 60 and it's bright like crazy (don't look at it without the LED's being dimmed...it still hurts...)
The 60 is by far the brightest, although not sure if upgrading from the "44" realy makes more light, I was only curious and also supporting John
who does a great job with excellent service. Maybe the "60" uses genuine Cree LED's so this could be good.

Just a hypothetical question here. But is there a warranty or replacement parts available in the all too likely event that I break one of your lights somehow?

BTW I placed an order for a 60 and im not sure the coupon went through. It seemed like it though. 100+hd upgrade. The coupon box disappeared and nothing said it applied.

The 30s are retina wreckers too. I hooked one up to a battery to check it and it lit up the neighbors house like day from about 100 yards off. Very focused beam, but still impressive.

Basically about even with the headlights mounted to the fairing itself with some reinforcement on the back side of the fairing. it's no a 90 degree angle probably around 70 but just a guess

"44" close up, unfortunately ISO1250 so not clear:



"60" close up ISO200. Looks to me there is more "juice" in this:

Those angles should not be a problem.

However I do not recommend mounting the lights directly on the fairing, it may look stable, even with a full backing plate, it will eventually crack or damage your fairing.

What year and model of bike is it? I'll take a look and recommend some alternative mounting spots.

The lights come with a one year warranty for product defects. Replacement parts are available.

It's a 2007 Yamaha FZ6. I'd like to mount the lights high either even with or higher than the headlights.

Another option I was thinking of was using a set of mirror mounts that sandwich between the mirrors and mounts for the mirrors. I used to have a similar setup on my FJR pictured below.

Guys - I hope you can help me trouble shoot a problem I have.

I just installed 2 Model 60 LED and a Wireless LED Dimmer with High Beam Bypass on an '08 BMW K12GT. With the bike off the lights turn on and off without any problems, but when I trigger the lights off the high beam switch the dimmer box starts to buzz loudly. I assume it is the relay in the box making the racket.

Guidance is appreciated--thx.




Found it....I just walked back out to the bike and reseated the high beam plug. All is well. It was a basic connectivity problem--sheesh.

Here's a setup on an RC51. Inmate used one of the mirror studs to mount the most forward light.

[QUOTE=n16ht5;17858981]LIGHT!!! got the 60 light in.. SO NICE! It's about on par in brightness with the HID (or a 100W Halogen)...

I think you meant model 30?

I got my light (model 30) installed on my Husaberg. i used some silicone tubing for a turbo system with a tbar clamp and mounted it to the fork tube. i used a switch with an indicator light on the dash and wired it to my battery tender lead.

Hi,

I just ordered a set of Model 44 LED lights with a voltage meter. Can I change Model 44 LED lights to Model 60 and include a dimmer?

Thanks!
