    Since I got my 1st ADVMonster Lights about 2 yrs ago, I don't think I have used my Hi Beam even once! So I figured, Why the hell have I been lugging that big useless piece around with me. As of tonight, that has been remedied!
    Here's how it looked:

    The lack of symetry would make me nuts. I would buy a single replacement, maybe in a fog light, and add it back on the right side.

    It would need to be a reflector design with the LED shining into the reflector, not straight out towards the front. A visor/shutter over the top half of one of lights being sold now makes very little difference in terms of being friendly to oncoming traffic, it's still blinding. I bought a shaped beam light for my bike that uses a reflector to eliminate glare to oncoming pedestrians/bikes/cars, and with a "lowly" output of 270 lumens, it puts the "1000 lumen" bike light to absolute shame in terms of the light field quality, throw, and effectiveness. Just saying, it has to be more than something stuck on the front of the light in case that's what the clipped beam idea is.

    I would love to put all of them on that .gif, but those are the only lights with the same background. I would like to add the M60 and M44.

    Great job, looks like anyone making eye contact will be hypnotized.

    What do you do for a backup in case the light burns out?

    I've never used my high beams either since I've installed them.

    Hadnt thought of the backup. If Im traveling, nothing I can do, but run the stock projector low beam and the 10w ADVMonster Spot. Soon, I hope to replace the stock projector with the Hi/Lo Projector and LED bulb, but that is a bigger project! I can always revert to the stock Hi Beam if need be, as no modification happened to original parts!

    I had HID's and the high beam was throwing enormous amounts of light. The beam pattern was different to that of the led's and I think that the spot LED's are way too focused, I mean the spot does not disperse light as much as the stock high (HID) beam. It goes further (may be) but it is so focused....
    I will keep the the two 3600 lumen LED's lights, and put too KTM high beam's converted to HID and see how it goes.
    The two 60's are amazing :freaky

    I am about to buy lights for my Super Tenere. I like the setup in this photo. Which 2 lights are they? I get the feeling they are spot and beam?
    Thanks,
    Dunzee

    sounds like a wee project for you? Take pics of the M60 and M44 with this background?

    PLEASE?????

    I , for one, would be very interested in the resulting 5 way .gif!

    cheers and thanks for providing affordable lighting and thanks to battlecattle for the .gif work!

    finished, It is just as important to me as everyone else. I have a project that I needed this info for too, however it made my decision harder.

    Sanjon,

    Do you know of anyone that's mixed two different lights on their bike, i.e. a M30 and a M60? Seems like you'd get the best of both worlds, a flood and a spot.

    Yes, this is a popular combination. The tenere above has a mixed set of lights.

    Here is 1 model 44 flood

    Here is the 44 with 1 model 30 spot. Good combo with distance and fill
