I highly recommend the rotary dimmer. It's hard to tell exactly from the pics but if you have the M64's aimed at the same angle you show in your first pic then that's why you are getting flashed by oncoming drivers. I think a couple of a degrees forward of 90 degrees and you'll be good.

After much thinking and jumping from one model to another in the decision process I finally settled. Just placed an order for two M62 with crash bar mounts and rotary dimmer :)

I can't decide which light or combo of lights to buy. It's for a DRZ400 SM and the lights will mostly be used on the freeway and highway. I'd like a combo of spot and flood, but my bike can't support much, and I don't want to spend too much money. I bought a Model 30 two years ago but the bike it was on got stolen.

Ideally I'd like it to illuminate the sides as well, so if the bike's leaning I can see into the turn. Should I get an M61 for each side, and an M62 for the front? Or do you think a single M64 would work? At that point the M64 would be significantly cheaper and put out the same amount of light as the three light combo. Or should I do some combo of Model 30s? So many choices!

Caliper Mount Question

Anyone have pictures of Caliper mounts for the 30's? Got a set for my '12 GSA and having difficulty getting them mounted to the calipers since the GS does not have fender bolts that work. I am planning on making some "L" brackets and then getting longer M8 caliper bolts with a spacer or bushing but looks like most of that I'd need fabricate so wondering if anyone has done this type mount before. Thanks in advance.

Oh ... and I ordered the HD brackets but when installed I see they create a somewhat ugly gap in the light housing ... I thought of using an O-ring to fill the gap. Has anyone else dealt with this issue. Yes ... I am pretty anal about how stuff looks and the gap in the housing just detracts for the look of the lights.

A flood light will help light up the sides of the road.

The DRZ puts out 180watts stock. I'd recommend a model 30 and 44 for a total of 30 additional watts on full power. I think the M62 and M64 are a bit large for a bike the size of a DRZ.

Oring should work to fill the gap.
