Awesome setup

I hate to hear that, I just bought a pair of model 30's last week. If i'd have known the 60's project farther i'd have bought them. Do you take returns?
30's are the spots and should be further than the 60's, the floods, which are wider.

Come on down to Florida with your camera

We will be offering free installs once the new shop is up and running about an hour south of Orlando. Keep in mind the "road" in is a bit inhospitable

NOT, the Model 60 puts out more than twice the lumens of the 30. No substitute for lumens

so i do have a question since im an electronic idiot.

i have an 09 sportster, with NOTHING added to the bike electrically except a pair of 55w driving lights ive been using as a headlight....crap. took the speedo, signals and one brake light off, the other brake light is now LED. so aside from the EFI and lighting, nothing should be pulling current.

anywho, i have a model 60 thats going to be replacing the 2 55w's and i was thinking about adding the equivalent spotlight to the other side of the bike, but im worried that there may not be enough juice to run em.

also, what is the model 60s spot light equivalent?

If you handled the wiring, you are way ahead of most folks

The model 60 uses 30watts on max, you are using way way way less than the feeble 55w halogens.

heres a tricky one....

if i had the rotating dimmer and no highbeam, is there a way to activate the "highbeam bypass" with a separate switch? how would that work...i like the idea of having them set low 90% of the time but flipping a little switch to have full bright. i had hoped the little strobe thing would have done that (press the light button for full blast then press again to go back to the last setting) or a "quick flash" setting (like passing flash) that returned it to the previous output. also, while im pointing out things i wasnt sure of when placing an order, in my head i thought the strobe function was a temporary thing, like strobe for a second and then back full on.

Yes you can activate the HBB with any 12v signal. The signal triggers a relay, bypassing the dimmer.

Keep in mind the ST dimmer does not have a HBB.

Are your lights (other than the turn signal combo model) DOT approved? Got my KLR inspected today and the inspector was asking me if anyone ever gave me trouble for having these lights on there (I believe I have the model 30 spots).

I want to get a set of the 60s for my Bandit, but don't want to get hassled. Thanks

Absolutely NOT DOT approved.

DOT approved lights usually have the upper beam clipped so they are friendly to others on the road.

We do offer multiple dimmer setups to reduce the output in the hope of saving a few retinas. Some of our dimmers have a nice feature where they go to full power when you turn on your high beam.

It is not illegal to have them on your vehicle. It could be illegal if they are operated on a public roadway. I have not had any issues with law enforcement noticing the lights.

Gotcha, thanks for the quick reply.

Sanjoh - you rock! my light is working fantastically... Thank you!


I purchased the M40 from Sanjoh a few months ago and was rocking it for a while.. took a spill somewhere on a trail and dented the bezel on the light. I didn't even notice it until the light stopped working from water entering the electronics. I sent it to Sanjoh to see if he could fix it... He wrote me that the damage was not covered under warranty, but that he would repair the light and replace the broken electronics and bezel at no charge just to be nice..

Back on the bike and back in action! I am a extremely happy customer



I think one of these trails claimed the light (on a different occasion)
They are tough, though.. just don't smash your bike into a tree like I do regularly
