Can someone tell me where I can buy a Waterproof DC/DC Converter 12V Step down to 5V Power Supply Module and have it shipped quickly, like w/i 3 days?

Typically 18g or 22g depending on load. Here's a table for reference.

The waterproof part is the killer. Can you locate it somewhere where it doesn't have to be? In a box?

Sorry for the thread hijack...I'm out.

I looked at that very table. The draw is <3A for the lights right? so even a startup draw of double, which seems highly unlikely, the 22 should be good? I'm redoing my entire wiring on my bike, so this is the topic du jour for me. I'm trying to learn all this S that I've ignored for years because I didn't get it.

That should be fine, no startup draw, max is 2.8amps per Model 60.

Don't forget to checkout our connector selection, we have some motorcycle specific sets available.

Hope your rewire goes well, spring is just around the corner

Great video!

Really shows what these lights can do for us! Remind us which lights you are running and how many. Kinda looked like 3 lights total, I'm guessing 2 floods and a spot?!

Only thing that would make this video better is to have a split view with a stock headlight on high beam for a moving output/visibility comparison!

2 spots 2 floods. 30 and 60 I think. Or 44?

I don't have the ability do a stock headlight anymore. Those parts are long gone.

I've been trying to figure out which lamps illuminate a further distance, the 30's or the 60's. Looking at the lit up tree pictures posted is no help, since the tree is much closer than the further away distance I am looking for. Can you shed some light on this question?

I will be using only two lights, a pair of 60's, or one 30 together with one 60 (for the flood pattern too) whichever set up would give more distance to the illumination.

Hopefully I worded my question better than when I tried but failed to find this out before.

RIght, so I just looked it up, I have 2 30's and 2 60's, 2 spots and 2 floods. I haven't split the circuits, though I intend to while I'm rewiring my bike. I have to think that the spots will perform their intended function and reach. If you look at the video, you will see a hot spot in the middle of the pattern while riding over bumps and it illuminates the ground. Those are the spots.

Lights arrived today, and they look very well made. Question on polarity; Black is hot, white is ground, right?

They should fit the bolt on the lower fender bolt on the Tiger, but I'll have to round the corners of the bracket with the grinding wheel just a bit.
