Wow so that means that the m50 lights wider and further than the 30 and is almost as wide as the m60?

Thanks for your business Your order will ship today, you probably will have it on Friday.

Love to hear how they do in the fog! Which I'm sure you have plenty of in your neck of the woods

I regret (just a tiny bit!) not getting two M60s because wow they are sure wide and I'm able to see into corners on the one side where I have it. The spotlight not so much... would this cure this "not so much" problem of the spotlight?

I want the lights to function with the oem lights. I don't want to worry about turning the lights on and off separately from the bikes ignition. Is this as simply as tapping into a power wire that is only hot when the ignition is on? Thanks in advance
That's what I did on my '04 GSA. Works great. I don't notice one being real different from the other. They work well together.

Thank you kindly

So I've added a set of the Model 60's to my Caponord 1200.
Since I've got no crash bars to mount them on, I've made up some adapters for the forks. Also made up a loom & routed it along the right-hand side of the bike. I spent most of my time getting to the high-beam wiring to tap in. With a fuse tap, the rest of the install is completely reversable. On low beam, you can't make out the difference as I've turned them down low enough to be seen, but not to dazzle oncoming drivers They make quite an impact on high.
I've mounted the dial variable control within hands reach for the moment with some velcro. I still need to seal it in something waterproof though, but wanted it accessible while I find the right settings.




Mounted to the lower fork. While the mud guard only uses 1 bolt at the front, there's a second bolt hole further up, so my bracket uses both. For those in Aus, the 1mm make-a-braket you buy from Bunnings has the holes perfectly spaced for this job (http://www.bunnings.com.au/flat-make...f2022_p3960600). I just bent it into shape & sprayed it black.


Hugs close to the wheel. I've cable-tied the wire on each side to the brake line to keep it clear of the wheel.


Low beam out on the nature strip.


My photo doesn't do it justice. High beam + Full Power on the AUX lights. I can actually see further that you can tell in the pic, but it gives you some idea.
I didn't take a pre-install pic with high-beam only, but the difference is stark. High Beam on the Caponord really just doesn't give me the spread to see the sides of the road. That said, you can already see the spread low-beam alone gives me anyway. Why they insisted on turning the low-beam off when you put the high-beam on is beyond me.


Low beam. I've got the AUX lights turned down so they don't really make an impact to my visibility. Could turn them up, but the beam has no cut-off so it'll dazzle oncoming drivers & attract the police.


Bright enough to fry a possum, or spot a roo at a distance :)

Now to find some country roads after dusk.

Geez Bunnings change their links fast.

If you go anywhere off-road then I'd definitely mount them higher. The wiring is libel to get snagged where they are. If I had crash bars I'd have gone that route, but they just don't make anything aesthetically pleasing for the Caponord 1200 yet.

For the road though they mount up fine on the wheel.

I used the make a bracket http://www.bunnings.com.au/flat-make...f2021_p3975816

Basically I cut 2 sections off 1 end (hidden behind my front fender so only made clean enough that it wasn't going to scratch anything), and bent it at the other end into a right angle 2 sections in. It's only been on for a couple of days, but it seems plenty strong enough.

For the wiring, I used a fuse tap from autobarn, an automotive relay & harness from jaycar, sheathed 2 core 15amp wire (I'm going to attach some more power accessories to the front of the bike at some point, so figured I'd run the power now), and some self-closing braided wire wrap from jaycar to give it some protection http://www.jaycar.com.au/productView.asp?ID=WH5630

Just ordered some lights and a flashlight. I'm a sucker for a new flashlight...

If these work like I expect them to I will be ordering a couple more sets for my other bikes.
