Another thanks to you John for fixing my light.

As background, I've had these lights for two years (mounted on a different bike) and one of them needed repair. John fixed it and shipped it back to me for cheap and as expected it works just fine. Turn around was about a week.

Great communication before, during and after repair letting me know it was on its way back. Thanks

Two of John's lights in the stock housing of an XR250r. Stock light removed and these mounted side by side looking through the opening of the housing. Works great.

Mounting on a K1200GT

Sir
What are my mounting options on a 2007 BMW K1200GT? I would prefer under the headlight but fork mounting doesn't bother me as long as it looks tidy.

Thanks

Scott

Glad to help. You might need a dimmer on that setup

Hey Scott,

Not sure who makes these mounts but with the lights up high, you could see a long way.


Under headlight mounts

Or you can make (or buy the nylon ones at lowes) some standoffs for the lower fender bolt and mount the lights there.

Looks like it. What a ridicoulus price for a piece of steel.

If someone would volunteer their K1200GT I think we could get the cost way down and make them out of Aluminum

How are you guys mounting these lights to your caliper bolts (or are you)? Is the included bracket sufficient?

Depends on the bike. Some are a direct bolt on others require a bushing and a longer bolt.

What type of bike do you have?

PM Replied to.

totally agree re cost but i'd prefer steel for strength n to reduce vibration?

Fork Mount

Made these brackets for my '04 K12RS from 1 1/2" x 1/8" aluminum flatstock. Used chrome 3/8" spacers from ACE Hardware to fit the recess where the cap screw bolts the fender on, and longer bolts. I used manilla folder material for the initial template, a jigsaw, vice, hammer and a file, it's not rocket science.......

I was very pleased as a rode 110 miles home last night in the dank dark wee hours. The model 30's threw a big white ball of light about 45 yards out, give or take. I apparently had them just a bit cross eyed, which you dont really see in the daytime. At night, the "crossed beams" met in the middle and really came through. My pale yellow ass stock headlamp just a flicker in comparison.

Guess I am saying I am pleased with the model 30 units .

I'm bad at long goodbyes too...)

Any pics on where/how these are mounted? It looks like exactly what I want for my KLR.

Looks nice but if it's only that one bolt the lights have quite a bit of leverage to loosen the bolt when you hit bumps..
