    There is nothing in the fitting instructions relating to TUV approval. Nor is there any 'e' mark on the lights themselves.

    But on the basis these are 'additional' lights to be used to supplement the existing 'approved' standard lights do they stil need to be 'approved' ?

    Just fitted mine, very easy, nice clean installation and very bright. Oh and I didn't spot any e numbers.

    I think the chances of getting any grief from either the police or VOSA in the UK are next to nil.

    Just installed the KTM 60114910033 light kit. Same as the OP it was truly plug and play. With the combination of the replacement RH switch gear (included) and the 3-way intensity level settings for each light (little button on the back of each light) I think it's a pretty good value.

    Hello guys

    these leds are usable as low beam? I mean.. they don't upset the other cars?
    Or do you have to switch them off when other cars approaching?

    Is there any way to turn off the low beam and have only the leds on?

    Thanks

    I thought about that, but maybe car drivers waiting at a junction would think you were a car some distance away as the two LEDs might appear to look like 2 car lights further away......

    Does anybody have really detailed pictures of additional wiring loom... and the plug of the new RH switchgear?

    I'll be adding some auxiliary lights (fork mounted) eventually but I'd really like to know how the KTM kit is wired :)

    The switch is off a 950, it could plug straight into the socket on the 990 to allow the stock lights to be turned off.

    The harness with the kit effectively splices in between the switch and the socket, getting power for the aux lights and altering the function of the switch.

    There is no other connection, everything is done via the stock 990/950 socket on the plate behind the headlight that the stock switch plugs into.

    Hello Peanuts,

    I just wanted to see where the extra leads from the extra switch are routed in the new "old" RH switchgear's molex plug :D (I've got a RH switchgear from an old Yamaha that i want to use as a donor for the extra switch). Just trying to keep it "factory".

    Similar reasoning for the additional wiring bit of kit. Just wanna see how it's all wired.

    Hello

    is there any posibility to turn off the main beam and stay with LEDs only? - maybe to modify something at the light switch

    I would like just the brackets, and mount my own LED lights. I don't need a switch, rig my own.. I have not been able to find a 2013 990 Baja parts fishe to see the brackets

    Interested in seeing the mount for the light switch. Is everyone mounting it on the right of the speedo or...?
    Thanks.

    The factory kit replaces the kill/start switch with a kill/start/aux light switch. Makes for a nice clean install.

    Here's pics of the results on my SM-T of the factory kit. Camera set on a tripod next to bike. All pics with camera set on the same exposure & F-stop.

    Low beam/no aux lights - Good light pattern close to the bike with the typical sharp cut-off which can be so troubling to cornering.

    High-beam/no aux lights - Decent reach forward and not terrible fill but not great for road surface detail at speed and could be better in the corners.
    [​IMG]

    High-beam/ aux lights on - Provides good fill light and because of wide beam does a nice job of lighting up hilly & twisty sections where the stock light alone would leave me wanting.

    I like'em. :)

    Yes, if you modify the supplied wiring harness. I want to modify the wiring harness so I can turn off the main headlight.

    Anybody know about these, they are using them with the rally kits on the thumpers section of the forum.

    Hi

    I've put a switch for the main beam - the green cable.
    The blue one is for hi beam; the white for parking light.

    I installed a pair of Baja Design SII LED Combo Light and love them. I made custom brackets to install them right under the mesh screen under the headlamp. I still have 1/4in gap at any position when suspension is fully compressed and I have the R model. They are activated by a toggle switch I installed over the spedometer. I also linked them with the finger trigger on the left hand for hi-beams. Had no problem with them since installation 20,000 miles ago.
