    THREE! :eek1 On a WR! MAN! I bet you have NO problem seeing anything at night....even if it is in the next county!

    THAT is what I am doing with the second one I picked up....dirt duty on my WR!

    I like them better the higher they are mounted too. Especially in the dirt as it seems to help keep some of the shadow effects better at bay, and allows me to see into holes bettter as well.

    Hi John:
    Just noticed that the new KTM 1190 Adventure seems to have the same/similar? LED's that you can get for the BMW.
    I think those are fog lights with lens front glass somehow conditioning the light beam making it street legal (DOT?).
    I could see myself buying a similar product from you.

    Yes, although you would likely have a bit wider spot unless you spent some time aiming each light.

    I've had John's lights for a few years now. Toasted one, but I tend to ride into rivers and hit lots of trees.:lol3 Had 2 model 30's and now have moved up to one 30 and one 44. They've been through hell and back, and kept me sane racing at night in upstate NY last year. Now they'll guide me as I plow through the sand roads of SC at Sandblast next weekend. So, a big two :thumb s up from me. Just worked up a little light bar for that redneck look I'm going for.

    Also picked up the Helmet light and it helps greatly in the turns......John do you have to charge the battery out of the box? Just had a friend pick one up and I cannot remember.?? Thx!

    I finally installed the Monsters on my URAL rig and Jeep...
    I'm speechless ! When they go full power it's crazy ! :clap
    As soon as I get a chance I'll upload some pics of how and where i mounted them. Thought 'bout posting pics of the beam but I think I'll have a tough time capturing it...
    I'd say they are kinda BRIGHT "Moon Light" as far as color goes and street signals light up very soon in the distance. Contrast is greatly improved also, so even where my low lights hit decently I notice a big improvement with the Monsters even at LOOOOW setting ! :D
    Best money spent for the rig and Jeep...
    Ah... by the way: The ones on the Jeep are mounted for now in a less then ideal spot (on the cowl next to the A pillars) but these two small guys EASYLY outdo the 5 x 55 W Hella Halogen lights I've mounted on the roof !!! INCREDIBLE !!! :clap

    Thanks John !!! GREAT product at a GREAT price !!! And easy to install too :D

    Those also look remarkably similar to the new BMW units for the 2013 F800GS (presumably same as R1200GS units)... any idea who manufactures them?

    Hella makes them, 14W. OEM for BMW 63 17 7721320 and now it seems for KTM.
    They are more Fog lights than anything else, the only thing I like is the lens which makes them on-road compatible I suppose.

    was hoping someone had already figured it out for me..
    thanks

    Are looking to be seen or primarily to see?

    The bolt holding the front fender (in front of the fork) is an easy spot to mount lights.

    Yes it is.

    Remove said bolt.

    Measure the depth of hole from edge of hole to bottom. Or just get a toothpick and mark the depth onit

    Go to the local hardware store and find a bushing that the bolt fits into but the outside is smalller than the fender hole. Choose the bushing length that is longer than the recessed fender hole is deep.

    The base of the light mount will use the bushing as a mounting surface.

    Lowe's has a great selection of nylon bushings in all kinds of interesting sizes.

    Ace Hardware has some really nice chrome bushings, pricey, but you only need 2, they also have nylon. Be sure to pick up a couple of longer metric bolts while you're there, Ace has stainless bolts with socket cap or button heads.

    OK .... this put me over the edge and I ordered! At $45 with "inmate" discount I could resist no longer. Hope to mount them up similar to the suggestion on that Burgman using Caliper bolt with a bushing and longer bolt on my GSA. Also opted for the amber or yellow lens guards only because I believe the amber lights are more noticable in the daytime.

    Hope they are as good as everyone says!! Thanks!! :clap

    Sanjoh,
    I went to your site to order a set of 30s but didn't see the box to enter the discount code to reduce the price from
    45.00 down to 40.00 each for inmates
    Did I not go far enough thru the process?

    Exactly ... the coupon code box in about step #3 in check out. You will see it and it worked fine for me. Just follow the check out steps on the site. Simple to use site too.
