The milk crate is behind the rider, so that will not work well. So better just to duct tape them to the fork tubes.

more useful light on the road instead of everywhere around

Hello Sanjoh, is there anyway possible to more focus the beam like a driving light.
Have you tried to mount your higher power M60s with such a reflectors?

Floods in the center, and a spot on the side. This is a sidecar rig - I have another 10W spotlight on the outboard side of the sidecar.

Have made many a prototype, with limited success. If you want a tighter beam try our model 30 or model 50.

Long time lurker, first time poster. After reading through probably 30 pages of this thread, I ordered a pair of M44s and the wireless dimmer for my '09 KLX250SF last night. I have a dual beam hi/lo HID installed, which is a vast improvement over stock, but I can't wait for the roads and trails to be awash in sweet, glorious light. I'll post pictures as soon as I get the bad boys installed!

Thanks for your business.

We do not recommend using LEDs with aftermarket HID systems. HIDs use extremely high AC voltage downstream of the booster box that can cause problems with other electrical items, should the AC current leak.

I wanted to share a few images of the Model 30/Model 44 combo I put on my bike

Low beam on bike, LEDs at lowest setting (bike left is a model 30, right is a model 44)




High beams with dimmer highbeam bypass:




Excuse the messy garage! I have too many hobbies.

Well hell. I have a relay on the HID, would that help at all?

I have been running these for 2 years with a relay triggered HID low beam in my K-bike. No issues here.

Perhaps, the further away from the booster box and downstream AC wiring the better. Some have been fortunate, others have not.

Hi Bob,

What's the proximity of the HID AC parts/wiring and LED wiring?
Will I see you at GMR?
