Add a dimmer switch.

We have three LED controllers, 2 with the high beam bypass. The high beam bypass provides a dimmed setting and gives full power when you turn on the high beams.

Our lights are built to my specifications. While they may look the same, the internals are not. As always you are welcome to purchase what may appear to be the same light from someone in another part of the world. We've worked hard to develop a a good reputation. This thread is evidence that for the most part, people are pleased with the product and support from ADVmonster.

Let me know if I can answer any questions on the product.

just curious ...
Yes, no worky. It's gonna take some specific optics.

Thank you Sanjoh!!

FYI...

OEM lights...hard to see that kayak not far ahead.. amazing i dealt with this for so long.


With LED on low setting...i'm guessing about 30%. that little red light is the LED power indicator...they're very visible in full day light. the light you see is the reflection from the dash.


OEM and LED on high beam / full power....wow is all i can say. the high beam bypass relay is absolutely worth it. i had someone merge too close to me on the highway one night. i flicked the highbeam and s/he immediately got back into the original lane.. that sold me right there.


they are easily in the top 5 mods i've ever added to any motorcycle i've owned. safety, visibility, form, function, price. i'm actually thinking of getting another set for my car, which has HIDs.

Titanium Open/Box Wrench 5 Piece Set

Checking your site I see you have titanium wrenches. Have always wanted these to carry on the bike and save weight. Just wondering is there is any advrider discount for items?

Model 44 Flickering Light

G'day Sanjoh,

Back in October of last year I purchased a pair of model 44's for my 2010 R1200GS. I only got around to fitting them to the bike in Feb of this year.

I had a fogging problem in one of the lights which I rectified. One of the lights flickers every couple of seconds on 20% low beam but at 100% its fine.

Besides the flickering problem, the lights are great after the sun goes down.

I pulled the tank off the bike last weekend and checked all of the posi lock connections which are fine.

I am running the lights through a Skeene Products IQ 170 LED Light Dimmer.

Will running the light which flickers cause any long term problems.

Any help much appreciated.


Simon.

Hey Simon,

Light flicker at reduced power could be a few things, does the light flicker when the power is increased but less than 100%?

If it was a light issue, it should flicker irregardless of the power setting. You should follow up with the dimmer manufacturer as well.

The flickering will not cause any long term problems with the LED.

M60s at the Dacre challange

Well the lights were great. so good I was elected to lead the night sections of the race. the only question I ahve is do you recommend threadlocker on the body to keep it tight? not sure if it was the 15 hrs of riding or the multiple get offs in the mud that loosened them up.
