    Thanks for your business!

    Just an FYI, they are model 60s, NOT 60 watts:D a pair will pull 56 watts on full power.

    I got the Model 30 LED spot driving lights from Sanjoh and I received them on the third day. I polished the stainless steel brackets so they look really cool. I installed them low where there used to be reflectors. Easy install because my bike (Yamaha Raider...gasp) has an auxiliary driving light switch already wired in the headlight bucket. I aimed the lights so that I can leave them on all the time but they still outshine my Ultrastar bulb low beam. I'm very happy.

    Here are some shots of the lights:

    Looks very similar to the ADVmonster product. The major difference is ours is WATERPROOF. After testing prototypes in the rain and water, they would stop working so I worked with the manufacturer to develop an improved gasket/seal.

    G'day John,

    Have read your post where you said my lights had traces of burning on the circuit boards, possibly from cheap HID lights.

    I am running a DDM 35W system on my main headlight only, probably not the best quality HID on the market, but others on this site seem to be running them with your lights with no problems.

    The model 44's are connected through a PC8 fuse block with a relay and a Cyclenutz mini switch to turn the lights on and off.

    How is this voltage spike occurring. Does it happen on start up, because the lights are only turned on after this bike has been running a couple of minutes or does it happen during the running cycle of the bike.

    I had a chat to a mate of mine who is a auto electrician and told him my problem and he said to me that my 44's are running through a separate fuse block and relay and I should have no problems.

    Both of us are scratching our heads on this one.

    Worse comes to worse I will install a HID50 unit into my bike which I have had taken off my previous beast, all I have to do is change the globe to a H7 and I will see how that goes.

    I wont re-install these model 44's on my bike till I get this sorted, I don't want to damage them again.

    I hope you can clear this up for me.


    Simon.

    What battery does that light run on and what is the connection on the battery (deans or other)?

    Hi Simon,

    HID lights use AC downstream of the booster box. In some units it can be as high as 35,000 volts. The voltage can leak from connectors and/or through deterioration of the wiring insulation.

    After troubleshooting an HID setup I had a few years back, I took them off the bike. Unfortunately the noise took out the OEM clock and fuel level sensor.

    Some folks have had no issues, I have seen several LED lights that have been cooked by aftermarket HIDs, which is why our warranty does not cover installs with HID lights.

    Uses a lithium ion which is also waterproof. It can run off your motorcycle as well. Here is one side of the connector:

    Connector is waterproof but designed to come apart so wiring is not damaged.

    Shouldn't a large zener diode (plus resister) in line with the LED voltage solve this?

    Anyone using the headlight replacement kit? I am thinking of adding one to my husky.

    Also, Sanjon, can you sell the headlight replacement kit without holes drilled in it? I think I can get two lights in there. Or can you make a custom one for me?

    Thanks for your business.

    Get one, you will be amazed. Every customer thus far has been extremely pleased with the drop in and shocked by the light output. Everytime I turn on the high beam I laugh:D

    Two lights will not fit in the stock husky setup. I do have the KTM drop in which will fit most 4" square headlight masks, and it will take 2 lights!

    If you ship me a mask, I'll make a drop in that handles 2 lights as long as there is adequate space.

    I'm thinking of putting a set of your lights on my fairing, want to use them as DRL as well as night enhancement. Does it make sense to put a 30 spot on the outside and a flood on the traffic side? Or could I do two 30's? I want visibility in day and distance at night. Someone probably asked this 100 pages ago, sorry if I don't feel like digging, working on wiring now so I'll be ready for whatever I buy.

    Plan is for them to come on with HB, and also have an override switch for DRL use, I'm assembling the relay setup now to test with cheapo WM lights. In my particular case it's easier to integrate it to the headlight relay upgrade I just did.

    Thanks for suggestions on which ones.

    Model 30s will work fine for you. You should consider one of our LED controllers. Let's you set a dimmed setting for being seen (you will need to dim them at night in traffic) and gives you full power with a flick of your high beam switch. We also offer a free PnP harness when you buy a set of lights with a controller.

    John,

    I would like to kindly ask if the internals of the lights will be ok in the long run or if it would be better to open the light and put some silicone over the cicuit. Is there any possibility that the cicuit is damaged due to vibrations when you are racing the bike over very hard terrain ?

    I would not hesitate to run the lights over any terrain. All interior components are secured. Many customers are running the drop in lights as their primary light, failure is not an option.

    I've run the SE a couple of thousand miles in the last month thru everything from single track to the slab, without issue (except the fuel milage sucks:D).
