Do you have an image of the mounting method on the hand guards, can't quite make it out in these images

I made small "L" brackets that I mounted to the handguard bar. The lights are mounted to the "L" bracket.

Required drilling 2 small holes in the handguard bar.

BikeVis Bullets

We are now stocking BikeVis Bullets.



These are miniature DRL's (or safety lights) that are made in the UK and quite popular in Europe.

They were awarded "Accessory of the Year" by webBikeWorld

Check them out:

BikeVis Bullets $29

Along with the Bullets, we are undergoing some other changes and will be offering several other products in coming weeks. While many are unrelated to LED Aux lights, we are still focused on offering great quality, good looking, cost effective LED lights to market.



Thanks,
-Brian

Thanks for this

I guess it depends on the bulk of the metal in the handguard bar and the relative size of the holes, don't want to get that wrong and weaken the bar EH!
Great location for them

The bracket is attached using M5 screws (2 each bracket). I drilled and tapped the handguards using the same size holes that the plastic guards screw into. The integrity of the handguard wasnt comprimised. How do I know..... well lets ask the tree that I meet last weekend

Concerning the 3" auxilery lights, I promised Toady I'd post some pics. I've mounted mine either side on the Multistrada using handguard standoffs clamped to the frame.




Since they plug in I have one removable/swappable as a deathray on my WR250X.



IMO these aren't the highest light emitting lamps at 900 lumens but doubled up provide a nice extra aource of driving light flood. Best part is conspicuity.
Like all LEDs they are ultra-bright to look at.

New price and other changes.

As mentioned in a previous post, we are doing some revamping @ MondoMotos

Many updates have happened over the weekend and one of the changes is a new pricing structure for the MM series lights.

MM12AUX Light Kit - $139
Light Kit Includes: Plug-n-Play Lights, 5' Fused Harness, Switch and Waterproof Boot

MM12AUX Pair (*Lights ONLY) - $98
*Lights come standard with 13" pigtail lead

Lots more items have been added including the entire line of "Tusk" products, including the D-Flex Handguards all at the best price.

Look for more additions in coming weeks.

Until all the remodeling is complete, if there is something particular you are looking for, drop us a line or give us a call.

If we don’t have the best price, we will tell you who does.

We are making some changes but promise the same fast, personal, and quality service we have worked hard to provide.

Thanks to all the members of ADVrider for your support,
-Brian, Kris & Bob (the MondoMotos team)

"Lights only" - means no harness or switch is included.



Lights come standard (as picured) with 13" pigtail lead and stainless mounting hardware, ready to mount and wire up.

I think it best to make any comparisons yourself.

I imagine any vendor/supplier/maker is going to highlight the advantages of their light over the others.

Do some research and decide your needs. How much "light" do you want? How will you use your lights? How much spare electrical power does your bike have to spare?

Check out what others have too say about each of the products you mention and decide what works for you.

Hope that helps.

Thanks,
-Brian

Here's the DRL's on my '06 Connie

Well I ended up doing my lights again. Last year I went with BikeVis light pods and modulator to help being seen. I was very pleased with the effect and the product as a whole.....but I wanted more lighing. I ended up getting these http://www.mondomotos.com/product/led/ d up a pair of , they came in just a few days to NC. They are very rugged and seem to be built to last. I took off the BikeVis pods and installed these, and tied them into the BikeVis modulator. I wish thse pictures can show how attention getting these are. So far I have not been flashed by any cars so the aiming might be right on. Check out the pictures.


Here is a 3/4 of the nose with the head light off

and with the headlight on...

And head on with the head light off.......

All in all I'm very pleased with these new DRL, there going to be keepers for sure.
I'm going to replace the lower DRL's that I have now with some LED spot lights that they will be getting in a few weeks.
Cheers
Ron

Any comments on the visibility of the BikeVis bullets as compared to the MM-01DRL? I put a set of bullets on my bike and would still like to see a bit more visibility in daylight hours....

BrittC, it sounds like you are looking for the same thing I was. I really liked the bullet lights, and they work very well especaily if you link them with there modulator. But heads up the MM-01DRL's let me be seen without any question and tied into the BikeVis modulator... it the cats meow. I also think they "project" further. By that I mean when I'm going to work at night, I can see the slight strobe effect on the road sighs 50-75 yards away. BUT, its difussed enough that I'm not blinding anyone. A co worker saw me coming home from work last weekend a told me that the lights a "VERY visible from a long way". I hope ths helps

Cheers
Ron
