Sanjoh's lights and controllers now have mini connectors that make installation much cleaner and simpler and based on what I ordered he concluded correctly that I intended to control all 4 with the one controller and included an extra Y connector. I saw this an thought it to be a great addition especially for no extra charge. I had lights mocked up and on within 10 minutes of opening using a spare battery. Everything worked great and as of 10/7 on my s10 they are impressive and truly light up the night.
Can you tell when the 30's are on? Those 60's are so bright, I would think it would be hard to tell the difference with the 30's.
I have a pair of 60's and they are bright!
Looks great by the way. If the 30's do make a difference with the 60's, I may add a set.

I got my replacement lens and the new Xpel protection. I have to be honest, when I saw $5 for a STICKER that was supposed to "protect" my lens from stones I was skeptical.

This is no ordinary sticker. The thing is as thick as the glass lens itself! The sticker feels tough as nails. I have a new confidence. I feel like this sticker might protect the bike during a motocross start!

I don't think the protection should be optional. Spring for the extra $5 if you buy these lights. It's cheaper than $10 for a replacement lens.

The Xpel lens protection was designed by 3M for aircraft windscreens

Would the 50's have a longer throw than my 60's? More is better in my world!

2 questions. Whats the lumen rating on the M15? and do you sell yellow lenses for your lights anymore? I see clear, red, and blue, but no yellow.

Thanks!

Yep need Yellow! What is the dimensions of the new lights? What's the color out put of them, like 5000K? I like the looks of your lights! ( I see the M15 are here at 60mm diameter
52mm front to back
80mm overall height from bottom of mount to top of light
25mm square foot mounting base
6mm diameter mounting hole in foot)

An M15 produces 1100 lumens.

Yellow was discontinued by Mfg. Looking at replacements.

Sanjoh, just wanted to give some very positive feedback. Rode down to Baja last weekend. Due to unforeseen circumstances, we had to ride from Coco's corner back to San Diego on Saturday. We left Gonzaga at about 3, meaning that from San Felipe north, we were riding in the dark, in Mexico, on a road with construction detours that were two-way through nasty dirt. Imagine being on a narrow dirt road with loaded semis heading the other direction in pitch darkness!!

I have the 60's with the dimmer that is wired so the LED's go to full bright when I turn on my high beam.

The first time I hit the brights, my riding buddy almost shit himself he was so surprised how much light they put out. They literally turned night to day. (My HID low and high beam didn't hurt ). I was able to see road hazards plenty far enough away to avoid them while going 60 mph through pitch darkness.

Once my buddy gets over the wallet pain of fixing all the parts he broke on his bike when he went down, he's going to be getting a set of your lights too. Thanks again for an awesome product!!

install question

Does anyone run an on/off switch, on top of using the rotary dimmer switch, or just run with them always on, same as the stock headlight?

I have on/off switches with the rotary dimmer. I can turn them on without any other light being on.

After all the noise interference with my radio, I just use the lights with my high beams. I added some ferrites, but they will still kill my radio signal.

Mine are always on at a lower setting, but go to full on with the high beams. I can always shut them off with the rotary dimmer switch if I need to.

Is the M50 housing the same 70 x 55 size as the existing 44's and 60's? I would guess its illumination would significantly out distance the 30's? Looking forward to seeing some output comparison photos.
I have a well used 44 that flickers more off than on, this could be a good replacement. Maybe replace the other existing good 44 with a 60 at the same time, if you think that would be a noticeable upgrade.
