First thoughts: these things are huge! There goes the idea of installing 2 sets. :)
I'm uploading a video to my YouTube channel, straight from the city of lights. Get it while it's hot.
Can you find my channel?
It's up there, but still being processed by youtube.
Bye for now.
Great video on how to unpack them! Mas seria bom vê-los já instalados na moto...
Yeah, these things are huge. I think I'll have to crank the preload to compensate for them.
Looking at the size it might be possible to fit some HIDs in there ?
Like I said, I can only install them next weekend. Too busy enjoying Paris right now
Oh, the envy...
Just received the lights, they are huge but very light! I think that the whole kit (lights, wiring, switch, etc) weights less than 1Kg.
Hopefully light enough so that my luggage doesnt reach 10kg. Disadvantages of flying low cost...
Be creative and use them as a clothing accessory
Not much but hopefully enough to give an idea.
I'm worried about the switch... The handlebar is too large. Pics to follow
I would like to get some protection between the switch and the handlebar, but there's no way that is going to happen here.
My desperate attempts of finding a way to relocate it are:
I'm probably going to use a different switch.
Sorry for not embedding the pics, but I'm doing all if this via mobile phone. I don't have a computer at this point.
Those look realy big indeed. How is the light output?
The swivel mount looks neat
I've temporarily removed the pics. I'll get them back up later in the day.
Edit: They're back up again.
The swivel is nice and sturdy. I haven't tested the lights yet.
Do you think you can fit some HIDs in the casing?
Sorry mate. It's the third time you mention it and I still haven't answered.
The thing is I have no idea... I'm also not going to open one... I don't want to mess anything up. I can take a measurement if you want....
Installed the lights on my baby GS yesterday. Great product, the usual Givi standard. Came with everything: spots, brackets, harness, relay, fuses, switch, screws, and even covers for the screws. H3 lamps. Big, but very light. I aligned the spots to cover the dark area left by the low beam right in front of the bike (kinda like fog lights). I would like a little more dispersion from the spots (they are very focused).
Found a good place for the relay (under the seat):
The switch (mounted on the handlebar):
Here's the original low beam:

Original high beam:

A couple shots from the front:
Nice! Thanks for posting the pictures, looks pretty good.
How is the vibration when riding, do you notice any shake on the lights when riding at night?
Seems like the baby GS has a thin handlebar.... :dog
