Well they passed stage one testing, of 1300 almost nonstop miles of riding on the Battle Buell last weekend.

Stage two testing begins next Saturday with 5000 planed miles in a row...

I think the upgrade is a big improvement over the original design and they have outlasted the first 2 sets I have broken to date.

Now to wait in line for an extra set for my other lamps .....

new brackets look top notch.

Count me in, when they become available.

I get compliments on my lights nearly every weekend I ride, many people know or are familiar with this thread, and ask if those are the lights on ADV..... I assure them "yes" and that I am very pleased.

I don't post a lot, but i have these wonderful lights. I bought one spot, one flood for my 04 GSA. If i were to do it again, i would buy two floods. the floods work great and seem to reach out just as far, but have a wider beam so don't have the spot effect.

i see these lights reflecting off signs so far down the road, it is silly. they may be bright for the cage in front of me, but i think the added visibilty they give me to the other cagers, is worth it. they won't blind them, but they shouldn't have trouble knowing i am coming

Heavy Duty Bracket

Will the base piece be an equivalent thickness?
For a new purchase will there be a choice or will we need to purchase both the standard and heavy duty, if heavy is desired?

Yes, interested...

Thank you,

Get LED's for sure; these are a great deal. I'm not sure about spots vs food for you. I've got HID head lights on my KTM 990 Euro light with Rigid D2's on my crash bars and two spot 30's up high. I run during the day with my HID's off with just LED's. I'm going to get these 44's floods to replace the D2 and then put the D2's on my truck. These lights are lightweight with good flexibility in mounting.

I'll post some pics when I get that going some day :o)

The base design remains the same.

Customers who previously purchased lights will be offered an upgrade.

New purchases can choose either the standard mount at no addtional cost or upgrade to the heavy duty mount with addtional cost.

Can you give me the dimensions of the waterproof on/off switch, specifically the base. Trying to figure out if I want to just hard wire the lights so that they're on at all times or if I want to mount the on/off switch on my handlebar so I can turn them on and off.

Thanks,

Cliff

The base (underside) is 13mm by 16mm. The casing itself (at the widest point) is 13mm by 17mm. The height with the rubber boot is around 24mm to 27mm, depending on how deep you screw the knob on (i.e. depending on the panel thickness). Panel cut-out hole is 9mm. Max panel thickness is around 4-5mm. That enough?

Your site says "individually" but you're saying $100. for the pair?
