Nice day for a ride.
KTM 950se with our Dual sport fairing.
M10 Flashlight gif, low, medium, high.
60 ft (18m) Tree is 200 feet or 61 meters distant.
The xm-l line is very efficient, but there are others out there that provide more lumens per chip. The xm-l line produces one of the highest lm/w. In the line the xm-l u2 is king of lm. Pushing chips to full potential produces a ton of heat on the upper limits and doesn't give many more lm.
The mystery remains*. Why AdvMonster model 60 with 4 Cree Xm-l T6 absorbs 29 watts while BD declares 44 watts for its Squadron light with same powerleds and lumens? The Advmonster data is real, I've tested it (more or less 30 watts depending on the actual voltage), and BD doesn't have any interest on declaring an higher consumption with same lumens.
Anyway as far to now I'm glad of the AdvM light which is probably the smallest 3,600 lumens led headlight, and that's very good for off road motorcycles.
*And curiosities grow: the led beam, despite its power, seems to me less deep than my feeble halogen high beam. I mean the possibility to distinguish something on the horizon. Maybe the parabolic reflector, or the led light for itself, determines an high contrasted beam without transitional zones.
Finally got around to installing my model 44s. Loving them so far! Each one individually is brighter than my stock headlight and combined its even better. The beam pattern is not ideal for roads, but I haven't seem any aux lights that have headlight like beam pattern.
Nice looking install
Thanks for your business.
What happened to the gas tank in the last 2 shots. Looks like you took it off.
Are your LEDs aimed low, or just the angle of the pictures?
Nice job, nice bike.
The last 2 pictures were actually taken before the first 2. I took them while wiring things up before I had the lights actually mounted (the tank is removed to run the wires).
The LEDs are aimed fairly low. I pretty much aimed them at the same spot the headlight is aimed at. They could probably be aimed a bit higher, but I want to minimize the blinding of others.
Quick question: I have one of these.
and it humms when dimming the LED lights. Is this normal or is there an issue?
It can hum, although it is usually inaudible. What lights are you using it with?
One BD Squadron.
you've supplied us with Aux lights, turnsignals, an aux taillight, and now a fairing. Any plans for a Univeral taillight? Maybe with a warning strobe feature and/or turnsignals?? Please?! Us LC4 guys really need one!
No plans at the moment to offer a universal taillight.
Do these lights make my ass look too big? Come on , build it and they will buy!!!!
Thanks for the encouragement
We do have some new long range leds we will are working on
How is that working for you?
Approx release date?
Sanjoh, do you plan any other more bluish color like HID ?It was quite foggy on the last race and most people with HID's were
better although I dont know if it was the color or the LED's scattering out the light and then the fog blinding you... Any info on the blue and yellow filters regarding the sharpness and the fog is much appreciated
Will this work on a pair CREE 3000 Lm Quad LED's?
