    The red mutes the output so it's not as "blinding". I find most folks stop well short due to the force-field emanating from Dirt Ninja:D

    Here's a side shot of the light, just under the rack, to the right of the givi.

    Love the maroon frame with black engine guard.

    Found that under all the Georgia clay from the last trip.

    Is it Powder Coated or Painted ?

    and

    How does it hold up to scratches and scrapes ?

    I am thinking of re-coloring my frame.

    Does anyone have the 60s mounted on to this made for the KLR and could you post a pic. I am not sure why my previous post of this was removed. Please explain. Thanks.

    Hi Sanjoh,

    Is that new red "lens" the prismatic one you spoke of earlier? I thought for some reason it was a stick on type thingie. I wanted to attach it to the rear brake light. Is that possible?
    Thanks

    The prismatic lens is in the works, it will be attached to the lens. This one is a lens replacement.

    Can't wait to get my 2 30's and 2 60's mounted. I'll disrupt all the cell phones nearby with solar flares....

    Hi i bought the dimmer and I am not sure how to connect the bypass wire on 1200 gs. In the switch is a lot of wires and I don't want to cut them unless I am 100%sure which wire is the right one. Can someone help me please?

    Hey Sanjoh, I noticed that one of my lights has condensation on the inside of the lens while the other is perfectly clear. Should I be concerned? I thought these are supposed to be water/weatherproof? I have been riding in the rain for what it's worth :evil

    FlyinPig: For what its worth in rain or even heavy fog my lights have always ended up with some condensation inside; thankfully it doesn't seem to affect the lights - yet.

    I'm sold on them. The addition of the dimmer that alows a hi power/low power setting and has a high beam override switch is the ticket.

    I have installed this set up on both my Super Enduro and my Super Duke.

    Guys I could use some help.

    I installed a pair of model 60s along with the wireless LED dimmer/high beam bypass into a 2008 BMW K1200GT.

    The installation went fine and the lights are amazing, but every single time I turn them on I get a Brake Failure warning on my dash. It even knocks out the cruise control when I switch them on.

    To clear the brake failure light I have to shutdown and restart the bike.

    The GS-911 is throwing and storing ABS codes, but I can clear them by shutting down the bike.

    I do not have any codes or brake failure lights so long as I keep the M60s DARK. Well that sucks, eh?

    Ok - onto what I tired --none of it was successful.


    1. Swapped batteries - zip, same problem.
    2. Rerouted the wiring away from the front harness - nope.
    3. Pulled the wireless box and wired it to a spare AutoSwitch designed for the K1200GT - same problem.
    To say I am pissed off is an understatement.


    I hope that someone reading this will see the error of my ways and clue me in to where I've gone wrong.


    I was about an inch away from pulling them out of the bike today and running them over with my truck.


    Any help you can throw my way will be much appreciated.


    I guess on the bright side is I have the brackets and wiring in place for a set of ClearWater lights.

    Sounds to me like it's interfering w/ the BMW CANBUS nonsense.

    Sorry I cannot be of more help.

    Wait for Sanjoh to reply

    Question - how are the lights wired?
    Are you running the power to the lights off the system or through a Centech [& a relay] or similar.
    Power them through an external switched source and it will be fine, otherwise, it's more draw than BM-Va allows- thus the error code.
    Take a look at the Excel Centech kit (http://www.excelcyclewerkes.com/index_files/Page672.htm)
    I am using this one and have had several light packages on my 10GS without issues (as a host of other folks).
    There are other kits, but this one is complete and literally plug & play.
    Ride well

    I have them on a separate switch (AutoSwitch) and powered directly from the battery (fused) via a Tyco relay.

    The only place the circuit connects to the bike's system is on the trigger side of the AutoSwitch. It uses the turn signal cancel switch to trigger the relay.

    I just don't get it. ???

    the key words I see is the integration of the turn signal switch with the auto switch.
    It's a spike to the system
    Get the lights on a separate switch and life will be grand
