These look very promising.

How about sending me a set of the 24w floods for a little testing..

The Ninja is looking good...

Hey, I would love to hear some reports on what the people who got some of these lights think of them! Anyone have something to say about them?


Thanks, FJRick

I've got my two 24 watt floods mounted and the wiring jury-rigged just to see what they're like.

Holy Crap! These things are friggen missles! Yup, they light up the night, no doubt. I just rolled it outside and tried the lame stock low and high, then switched on the Cannons...unreal. They light up deep into the woods. I think I saw Bigfoot smoking a little as he split the scene.

This is my work-in-progress: KTM 950 Adventure with a really cool Twin Headlight Ernie bracket.








Funny...I thought maybe I had received Spots instead of Floods at first. I wasted a whole bunch of John's time as he patiently pointed out the difference and how to tell. Eventually I got it. You have to look really, really close but the three segment LED denotes the major difference. It's super hard to see it, but once you do...

Yeah, I'm happy.

So are the 24 watt definitely to bright for traffic?

if so I may lean to the 10w for my DL...it already makes lots of light

Thanks for the report Chuck

I've been using my 24w/10w combo during the day without issue. I'm still amazed how people move out of my way with em on. I hesitate to use them at night on a 2 lane simply because oncoming traffic will likely be blinded, who knows what happens after that.

Thanks

Thanks for the quick reply.

So each light (housing and bulbs) weighs almost 3/4 lb.?

I am trying to figure out if I can mount it to the plastic under the headlight.



Thanks

What do you have mounted there now? What bike is it?

11.5 oz is the ready to ship weight so it includes the shipping box, foam, both mounts 3-4' of wiring, male and female electrical connectors.
