Thanks for the polarity info. A lot of the vehicles I work on use a white ground wire.
A reminder for those using our led controllers. light wiring/connections must go to the dimmer, ie do not use a common ground.

Here are the Model 30 lights mounted on the light bucket ear bolts on my Bonnie. I took a test ride last night and would guess I have twice the light intensity and distance with these than the stock headlight alone. Well worth the investment. I may mount a bar to the ear bolts instead to place the lights a couple inches lower so the turns signals won't be hidden buy them, but first I will ride like this for a while and see how it goes. Thanks John!



Cheers,

Mike

Any updates on a more road friendly/cutoff light?

Thanks! Same here!

Roger and I did the wiring so he would know how to do his later when he got home. I had some time on my hands this afternoon, so I went ahead just a few minutes ago and added aluminum bar stock mounts to get the lights a little lower. I used 1/8" x 1" aluminum and it is plenty stiff for the short distance it extends the lights. Below is a picture of the modified install. I think I will feel less uneasy knowing other drivers will be able to see the turn signals (not that they every pay attention).



Cheers,

Mike

The 2013 Frostproof Bike Fest was lots of fun.

Quite the variety of bikes.


Band on a flatbed, only in Polk County


Beautiful Lake view


Lots of folks interested in the SE


Holding down the tent, wind came up late in the day

Hey Sanjoh!

I put your lights on my Versys. I like them a lot. I bought the dimmer and the only nit to pick, is that at about a quarter turn, the lights are full bright. Other than that. I'll be putting your lights on the rest of my rigs.

Thanks.

I like the look much better (moe classic) with the lights in line with your headlight, only the issue with the turn signals...it's tricky with a bike like yours, maybe the signals need to relocate?

Don't forget the "inmate" discount. ~$80 for a Quality set (that's a pair) of Lights.

  • Spot Beam
  • 1500 lumens
  • .85amp@12v
  • 3 LEDs
  • aluminum housing
  • Length: 70mm , Diameter 55mm
  • black durable coating
  • o-ring sealed housing
  • one meter wire lead
  • includes flat mount (stainless) mounting bracket
  • glass shatter resistant lens
  • Sold individually
You need to mark down the model 44's that much ...lol. Then I can get one to mach my 30's ;-)


BTW: magnificent lights, I have had the model 30's on my 919 for about two months, and I absolutely love them. When I ride from Orlando to Camp Blanding (out side of Jacksonville) at 0300-0400 they definitely light up the road.

We did play with the idea of turning the mount around backwards so the lights could tuck back further, behind the turn signals. The lights are too deep for that, though and would hit the turn signal bars.

Ya know, I honestly did not know how many were "hiding in the shadows" until I fired up your lights...lol.
