    haven't read all 200+ pgs but have a question anyway, why do you need a or want a dimmer on your lites don't you want them on full bright isn't that why your putting them on the bike to see what goes bump in the night so you don't. also other than a switch of some kind what else do you need with them? Thanks Mike :D

    Dim: low beam
    Bright: high beam
    These lights are really dazzling for other road users if not controlled properly.

    Full bright is blinding to oncoming traffic, so unless you want to be run over, dimming helps make the lights more traffic friendly while providing full power with a flip of your high beam switch.

    I'm thinking of putting your Blk model 44's with M-30's or using
    Model60's with the M-30's any suggestions or would these combo's
    work together for up close and way out there thanks Mike

    I like the recessed look to the 60's, but what about cooling airflow? Is there a limit to how long can you run them at slow speed without overheating? Did you wire in a relay with 16 LEDs drawing current? Any radio interference? Those 64's are big in comparison aren't they! I'd love to see some nite shots on a long straightaway the 60's, the 64's and all on, and with the Ford lights for comparison.

    Model 60 and 30 compliment each other very well, although most customers have found a pair of 60s to be awesome. Lots of lighting to the sides and plenty of distance.

    Sanjoh,
    I'm running 2 44's with the rotary dimmer with high beam circuit. If I want to add a single 30 to get the longer spot beam effect, but still leave both 44s, can that be wired into the existing circuit and dimmer switch?

    Yes, the rotary dimmer is good for up to 72 watts, a model 30 + 2x Model 44 puts you @ 50watts. You should be fine.

    Which would have the greater distance reach, a pair of 60's or a 60 with a 30?

    Does anyone have pics of lights mounted with the "Crash Bar Light Mount" Im trying to work out where i can mount my set of Model 60's on my sv1000.

    Already broken a set of the heavy duty mounts (different bike) so thought I might give the crash bar mount a go.

    This is the one im taking about

    Either mount will work fine. The HD mount is a much thicker version of the standard mount, otherwise the geometry is the same.

    OK, so what do I enter in the coupon code to get the "inmate" discount?

    You enter "inmate". Doesn't know if it is supposed to be capital i or not, but you will figure that out.
