    Personally I like them low on the forks (fender height). I think they do a good job of shedding extra light in the dark and make a nice "triangle" for the cagers during the day.

    Huzzah! Oh, dem is some bright lights. :D
    I have em mounted in a double stack for the moment, may move the lower lights to a different location, but for now Im diggin the light pattern displayed to the 4 wheelers.
    The bottom right is aimed off to the right at about a 10-12 degree angle to help see the critters lurking in the ditch.
    Gonna send in another order for my sons bike. Hes only gettin a pair of lights though. :cry Will send pics when those are mounted.

    Whattaya mean "some electrical knowledge?" Isn't it just a hot & a ground coming out of the lead? Just about any switch will work, correct?

    Update: 5 month report

    I love these LED lights!:clap

    Well, after about 5 months, my light switch has crapped out. :cry
    I guess the Canadian elements were too much?:huh

    Hey Brian, any warranty on this? I have the MM10 kit w/original light switch.

    Thanks.
    Dave

    sorry to hear the switch is giving you problems.

    Just meant these arent plug-n-play. Most any switch would work.


    thanks,

    ya, they went from black, to brown, to light brown-bronze as you can see in the pics.
    I didn't really noticed them until you mentioned.

    My bike is exposed to the elements all summer long.

    Yours looks a little more faded than mine are currently. I'm really surprised how fast this happened, but am considering painting mine.... not sure with what kind of paint yet.

    just placed my order for an MM10 kit. Going to mount these on my Triumph S3. The old school bug-eyes with glass reflectors could really use some help..

    Got my Mondomotors MM8s in, and got 'em mounted & wired up today. I wired 'em to a relay - not sure if that's really necessary or not, but am trying to maximize output. Couldn't resist, and went out for a night ride to check 'em out. Although these are flood, not spot lights, they make a noticeable difference, and are considerably brighter than the 35 watt halogen aux lights I also have installed! I will be replacing those halogens with LED spot lights at some point. :evil

    MM8-MM10-MM12....all of those seem to be what I need to upgrade my 06 Vstrom. However, I still have a simple question: Who makes them...and where?
    (hmmm that was TWO questions, right?)

    I'm treading lightly:
    Are you asking who fabricates the individual components, or who puts together the kits as illustrated in the thread? If you're asking the first question, that's above my pay grade, but the second...

    I'm just curious...If it's a good product, and people are satisfied with it, fine. I'd consider getting a set for my bike. And if they are made...somewhere near here (North America) it's a plus.
