    Nordiboy, nice job. My prevous bike was a SV650 naked. Straight bolt-up or did you need to weld/hammer? I assume better light output.

    Chopped the SV mounts back a bit, drilled 2 holes in each side and mounted to the existing DR fork mounts.

    Much better light, also I managed to fit all the cabling inside the shell.

    Do you know how much watts the headlight draws? What wattage bulb?

    Lol. My bad!

    It's a homade concoction using 3 model 60 LED lights from ADVmonster.

    http://stores.intuitwebsites.com/hstrial-QualiRegResou/-strse-41/Model-60-LED-off/Detail.bok

    3600 lumens each while drawing only 2.4 amps per light. Running them with a dimmer so low beam is approximately 30%, and high beam kicks up to 100%. Finishing up adding another 2 this weekend with yellow protective lenses for a total of 5. Shouldn't be able to out ride them in pitch black.

    From last week.

    Since last friday, any vehicle access to the vally is forbidden due to natural preservation purposes - these might be last (legitimate..) dirtbike pics from a beautiful place.
