I finally got around to finishing the install of these on my 2000 R1100RT. I am really happy with them.
They were shipped out quickly, and at my door quicker than expected. They are good looking lights & seem very well constructed.
The install was easy. I used the dimmer but did not use the override wire as I normally ride with the bright on during the day.
I used 1.5 “ self adhesive anti skid pads that I got at home depot on the mounting plate. I trimmed the pads once on the mounting plate. I used those because I was mounting to the RT’s plastic fenders and the plastic on plastic seemed like it may cause some slippage once I had them aimed. Seems to work, they seem pretty well in place once I got them aimed & tightened up.
This has been said before, “they are really bright”. I am glad I have the dimmer, they really are that bright.
All in all I am really happy with these lights, I think they look good on the RT & they are very functional.
Thanks Justin! Add me to the list of happy customers

I would have stuck them just in front of the BMW badge on the fairing.

Thanks for the feedback, glad you're happy with the lights. Install looks nice

Curious though, are there no options for higher mounting? I find that high output lights mounted low like that wash out the road close in and don't give a lot of distance. The higher the better IMO, when it comes to aux lighting.

Justin,
Will you give us a heads up on this thread when the dimmers get in stock?
Thanks,

There are mounting brackets available that would put them over the mirrors. I don't particularly like that look. The other option would be to mount to the side panel. I considered that, but decided I didn't want to put any holes in the side panels.
I'll give them some time where they are & see how they work out there.

If looks was the driving factor of placing them there, then it was a success :)

They look good where they are to me.
Just a thought ....what about just below the headlight just in front the radiator screens?

Thanks,
We've got a new batch of dimmers in and we're working on getting them prepped. Will be added to the website by Monday. In the interim, if you want to get in on another great LEDrider deal, the following order link is good for a $10 dimmer with a pair of our LR4 quad LED lights :) - *note: These will ship on Monday - once they are added to the site, price will go up to $20 for the dimmer*

http://ledrider.com/shop/?model_number=LR4P-FD

Dimmer Specs are as follows:

Dimming Mode - Continually variable Pulse Width Modulation via large, glove friendly knob.
Supply Voltage - 8 to 20 Volts DC
Output Current - 7 Amps at 13.8 Volts DC
2 Foot Leads for easy wiring
Over Voltage Protection
Over Current Protection
Great for panel mounting

Three of them are our LR4 lights. The upper right appears to be another brand.

Do they hit anything when turning your bars back and forth from each extreme?
