Wr250r install

Working on install of 2 M30s and a dimmer on my WR250R.

I don't really have a good place to mount the dimmer. For those of you that have been running these, is there any reason to have the dimmer handy? Or is it a set it and forget it kind of thing? I was considering mounting it underneath the seat. Seems like it would be less likely to get bumped and such, and wouldn't have to fabricate any brackets etc... But if I need access to it day in and out, under the seat might wouldn't work.

Opinions?

Also, is the positap meant to connect to the headlight switch wiring?

Use the posi tap to attach the high beam bypass wire to your high beam wire.

I mounted my switch to the back side of my HDB hand guards. If you're using the high beam by pass though, you really won't need access to the switch again. For me however, it took a bit to figure out how to keep the switch from rotating from the vibes on my thumper. After stuffing the underside of the knob with foam that's not been a problem, and I've not touched it. I have mine set as low as it will go without pulsing, and leave it on day or night.

Thanks, that was helpful. Got it mounted up, we will see how it fairs. Light is definitely better, just need to do some riding at night and make sure I'm not annoying oncoming traffic.

I think it's all in how you aim them. I followed my wife home from the big city at dusk, and her comment to me was that I could turn them up even more. My in laws and I ended up crossing paths on a 2 lane road during daylight, and they said it wasn't a bother at all. Did say however that the appearance was so distinctive, that they knew it was me before they could identify the bike.

Good luck with the lights. They won't stop everyone from pulling out in front of you, but it will get some to not do it. And as far as night goes, they fill in my low beam nicely, and when you hit the high beam switch, well, I'll just say that amount of light is addictive. Makes it hard to go back to low beam lol.

Just ordered a pair of the 30s along with a dimmer for my KLR. I'm sure I'll post some pics when I get them :

Perhaps next to the blinkers on the bars? We offer a couple of mounts that may work.

Or on the fork lowers on one of the fender support bolts.

Once you have the dimmer set, you will not need to adjust it.

WR install
To the right of brake line, inside the fairing


On the small "tab" that extends back from the mounting screw.


Positap connects to the high beam positive, just behind the headlight.

Yep, saw that. These suckers are just 2inches wide with that kind of candle power? Sorry, just found it hard to believe.
