    UPDATE - JAN 17 2014


    This coming weekend we will be undergoing some website maintenance/updates -

    - Adding new products
    - Adding a DIY section (components for a DIY install)
    - A new option on our MM10 light kit that eliminates the switch and allows the lights to turn on/off with your bikes ignition.

    Now the important part -

    This all means a permanent price reduction on our MM10 light kits.

    [​IMG]

    Effective today the standard MM10 Light Kit price has been reduced to $129 USD
    Minus the ADV10 discount and the final price is $116.10 USD

    This is the same price we offered at the International Motorcycle Show and now its here to stay.


    Thanks,

    UPDATED FEB 2013

    We are pleased to bring to market the MM10 (aka Bullet) Auxiliary LED driving light

    The Bullet uses the CREE XM-L chip making it our most powerful lighting option.

    CREE says - The XLamp XM-L is the industry’s brightest, highest-performance lighting-class LED.

    <h3>Product Details</h3>

    <li>Made of strong die cast aluminum with a nearly unbreakable lens.</li>
    <li>IP68 (submersible) standard, Marine quality, Weatherproof, Waterproof, Rust proof, and Shock proof.</li>
    <li>All the hardware, bolts, nuts and washers are stainless steel.</li>

    MM10 Bullet Light Kit

    Price: (UPDATED 4/13)

    MM10 Bullet Light Kits - $146 - with ADV5 discount = $138.70


    In form and function, compare these to lights costing 2 - 3 times as much (or more).

    I have personally put these lights to the test and they perform. On and off road. Realistically expect them to compare to 75 watt halogen units and you will be more than happy :D

    The MM10 is introduced on page 17 - post #251 - Several reviews and photos can be read/seen following post #251

    Greetings once again fellow ADV'rs

    We just recieved a new stock of LED Lights.

    [​IMG]

    Iv been running them on the ADVersys for a couple months and really like the way they look and perform.

    [​IMG]

    Versitle mounting options and wiring up was easy, no need for a relay or dimmer.

    Each light is rated @ 12Watts each but produce light comparable to a 50Watt Halogen (900 - 1000 Lumens).

    Each light draws <1Amp putting very little strain on your electrical system


    Details:
    Made of strong die cast aluminum with high impact PMMA lens and are Marine quality (IP67)
    Weatherproof, Waterproof, Rustproof, and Shockproof.
    All the hardware,bolts, nuts and washers are stainless steel.
    Bright white Epistar LED lights.
    60 Degree Flood (w/center spot) beam (see pic)
    Long lifespan approx 30,000hrs.

    Here is a pic showing the beam pattern. Flood with center Spot.
    [​IMG]

    Right now thru Jan 15th they are priced @ $98 a pair.
    More details and purchasing info can be found on our website.

    We sell other lights as well including these Daytime Riding Lights

    [​IMG]

    These sell for $49 for the pair and are great for improving your daytime visibility to oncoming traffic.
    Rugged, compact and ultra low current draw means they are perfect for Dual Sports (or any other bike really).

    Lights can be purchased thru our website @ MondoMotos

    ***************************************** UPDATE FOR 2013 ********************************************

    Hi all,

    On Jan 2nd we will be launching a new website, with some enhanced features (account creation, product reviews, etc).

    But more importantly, we have been able to renegotiate with a couple suppliers this past month which makes it possible to do price restructuring on a few items.

    Meaning: lower prices on our LED lights and light kits.

    Effective Jan 2:


    Other new products and lighting choices will be added in the coming months and will continue to do all we can to provide the best products and best service at the best prices.

    Thanks

    I'll be mounting them on my dr650. Not sure how or where I will install them yet, but I've got several ideas. Can't wait to get them on!

    Just ordered a pair of MM12AUX as aux lights for my 02 BMW R1550GS. What is the wiring setup?

    Will mount them to the small CNC bars below my turn signals.

    Munchmeister,

    Thanks, your lights went out this morning.

    Wiring is straight forward, with Red lead being "positive" and Black being "negative".

    If you need more info, like wiring diagram, send me a PM.

    Are your mounting bars custom (one of a kind?)

    Thanks,
    -Brian

    Got them mounted! Not wired up yet though. I still need to finish my "brackets" which will be rounding off the corners and a coat of black paint. I used some 3/16" thick 1" wide flat stock (steel) that I had lying around to make the brackets. I cut it to length and put a slight upward bend in each piece, then drilled the appropriate sized holes and mounted them under my mirrors. Clears my windshield and keeps them out of harms way for the most part. I need to figure out what kind of switch to use now.

    Brian, they are custom in a sense. I got them off ADVrider (where else :freaky ) from some guys that made a bunch of them from a design from yet another inmate (YBViking), who was apparently no longer making them. They replace the mounting for the turn signal lens on the GS (hollow, for signal wires) and provide a simple drop out of solid, machined aluminum, with mounting hole so lights can be attached. They can be used above or below the turn signals. I like em a lot, as they are pretty minimalist and install very easily. I've just been waiting to find a reasonably priced aux lights and yours fit the bill. I will post photos once I get them installed.

    I ended up wiring them to my high beam to eliminate the need for a switch. I tried to take some pictures of the light pattern, but my camera is about useless in the dark...

    These lights throw more of a flood pattern than spot, but wow... The near useless high beam HID light on my dr650 has now turned into a retina searing flood light (for those that try and stare into them). These things have no problem at all lighting up both sides of the road for a pretty good distance. Should there be any kind of animal next to the road, you should have no problem seeing them with plenty of time to slow down. I love these things!

    Creative way of mounting the lights, thanks for posting up the pics.

    Im glad they are working out for you. Ive ridden in northern Georgia and I know there are plenty of critters lurking in the dark.

    Thanks for the positive feedback.

    Happy (somewhat belated) New Year !!!

    We got a few pics of our 12W lights mounted up on an R1200GS.

    They are are mounted to the crash bars with PIAA 360x4 brackets (which we have a few of in stock).

    I think the lights are a great addition to the bike (and so did the bikes owner)

    Lately there has been a great deal of discussion on the internet about LED lights and "lumens".

    Many suppliers claim a higher output than the light actually produces.

    Its not hard to find lights that by all appearances are identical (and most likely are) but depending on who is selling them, there ratings (in terms of lumens) vary. Sometimes quite a bit.

    Without proper equipment and facilities to actually test these lights, its hard to say exactly what the output is.

    This sparked some debate with us and we did some "not so scientific" testing this past weekend.

    Our tests put our lights side by side with Halogen style units and see how they compare.

    With that said, we will adding the "compares to" rating to all our lights here and on our website.

    This may result in a more "conservative" claim in terms of Lumens.

    While we cant (and wont) police the claims of others, we will do our very best to do so of ourselves.

    ---edit: I forgot to add that this post is in no way the result of any complaints or negative feedback we have gotten about our lights. Everyone we have heard from is more than happy with the volume of light produced.:D



    Thanks,
    -Brian

    Do you have any photos showing the light output of these?

    [​IMG]

    Do they put any light on the ground or not so much?

    Thanks for asking - These are DRL's and while they produce more than enough light to be seen by oncoming traffic in daylight (or in the dark), they dont really "project" light in any real quantity.

    The advantages that they have is that they draw so little current they can be used on most any bike. Even those without batteries. They are very light weight (about 3.5 ounces) and easy to mount.

    I first mounted them up on my old DR200 that I commuted on. The headlight on it sucked and I was looking for a way to make myself less invisible in traffic. These ran off the stator on that bike and did the trick as far as being "seen" was concerned. Since then, we changed the design a bit and added stainless steel nuts and bolts and the rest is history (so to speak)

    I personally run with them on my DRZ (bolt right up where the reflectors were) and we've sold several of them to folks riding Dual Sports who ride in city traffic and on trails where the potential of an ATV coming the other way exsists :eek1

    thanks again for asking.

    I'm late in thanking Brian for the great service last month. I placed a special order for some lights and Brian was great in giving me an estimate of the delay over the holiday season. He kept me updated so that I never had to wonder about the status of the order, and the darned things shipped much earlier than expected. Outstanding customer service, Brian!

    Oh, and of course the lights are exactly as promised and are great. I was blown away by how carefully you packed them, too!

    No affiliation, just an extremely happy customer. :clap
