Hey Sanjoh, I was just putzing with that dimmer dealio. The only lingering doubt I have about getting the wireless kit is where people keep the wireless fob. Do they velcro to a spot and leave it? I'll go pick up one here in a few minutes.

Velcro to the top triple clamp is popular. It can be attached to a key ring as well. Replacement FOBs are available just in case.

Thumb Response time second to none

I just ordered a 44LED and wireless dimmer w/ high beam bypass. Had a question after the order and was replied to almost immediately. Great customer service!

Good choice :), but I already have my battery meter there, not a lot of choices on a naked bike. Ordered the dimmer with high beam, think I'll put an Autoswitch on the sucker and forget it, maybe use your switch for some other project...I am leery of drilling into those plastic housings on the handlebars. Thanks!

Vendor question for anyone who uses the Autoswitch for these lights...is there a Vendor for it or are you just chasing it down at A&S or wherever you find it? I don't see a specific place on this board where to go for it...

Ok I have a non standard application and I am trying to decide on what I should buy exactly.

Ive decided on this family of LED lights discussed here, but I think I need advice.


I have no Standard head light and would be using these lights exclusively as headlights(yeah, they arent DOT approved, got it...neither is what Im using...)

So what should I order and how should I set it up?

Experienced users of these lights PLEASE reply!!!!

Here are some pics of my setup!

Respect for taking this setup on a public road, I think you'll need all the light you can get,
maybe LED's mounted flush with front?

Yeah I kinda already figured I will need to move the headlights closer to the outside of the fairing and possibly even protruding. Im just trying to determine a lighting combo that works well, safe for other motorists as practical, and wont draw excessive attentin from cops.

So i'm trying to figure out the correct combo of flood, spot, wattage, and dimmer.

Do those lights work now? How do they illuminate at night? Your minimum action could be replacing them with the leds, although you would probably lose some use of one or the other lights having them stacked that way. If you have the knack to re-fab the fairing, you could put a corresponding receptacle on the bike's right side, or a matching set, then run spots on the left and floods on the right. There are several precedent-setting bikes on this thread with two sets of lights. I would love to be there when this fired up at night and took off, lol...somewhere Batman is yelling "Who took my friggin prototype???" :)

Seems like you have some screws on the sides of the windshield that might work for mounting points.

Given how versatile the mounting bracket on the lights is, you can mount them up there, and they should be a decent distance apart, and cover the road.

Going with the DOT concept of high and low beam, I might get a flood for the left side, angle it down, or even paint a portion of the glass lens to give you a cutoff, and then a spot for the right side.

Get the dimmer with the high beam bypass, and play around with the intensity. I'm guess you'll be able to make something work.

PM me if you want to put something inside those light housings you already have, I've got an idea that might work.

The lights I have now are pretty sad. I don't intend on adding lights. Just replacing what I have.

From what Sanjoh told me when I ordered mine the 44 floods give more light and distance then a 30 spot light does. So I went with 2 44s. I am not a light expert but more is always better to me. I'd throw a pair of 44's in there with the dimmer and play with the settings. Just don't bring that thing to TN and try to ride it on the roads! They will bust you in a second! Nice bike though, I'd have to get myself a batman suit and helmet as riding gear on that thing.

Woh, CC, I didn't know that about the 44 being all around better than the 30. So could it be a waste of time to put the 30 on the left and adjust it to run down the left side of the road while the 44 is more oriented to the right side?

When I saw the pics on the fence, the 30 looked like it would definitely travel further down the road than the 44 and be a little easier on oncoming.

My question to Sanjoh:

I saw your pool pics of the older model lights but nothing of the newer ones. Flip flopping between 2 44s and 1 44 and a 30. On a dark ass road which is going to light up more? Does the 30 spotlight reach further forward then a 44 considering the extra power?

Sanjoh replied:

2 44s will have more light, further and wider due to more lumens.

Check my website for pool pics of the 44 and 30, look under the detailed description tab.

Thanks,

Sanjoh

That is all I know and why I ordered 2 44s, which hopefully will be installed this week!
