    An M15 produces 1100 lumens.

    Yellow was discontinued by Mfg. Looking at replacements.

    Sanjoh, just wanted to give some very positive feedback. Rode down to Baja last weekend. Due to unforeseen circumstances, we had to ride from Coco's corner back to San Diego on Saturday. We left Gonzaga at about 3, meaning that from San Felipe north, we were riding in the dark, in Mexico, on a road with construction detours that were two-way through nasty dirt. Imagine being on a narrow dirt road with loaded semis heading the other direction in pitch darkness!! :yikes

    I have the 60's with the dimmer that is wired so the LED's go to full bright when I turn on my high beam.

    The first time I hit the brights, my riding buddy almost shit himself he was so surprised how much light they put out. They literally turned night to day. (My HID low and high beam didn't hurt :evil). I was able to see road hazards plenty far enough away to avoid them while going 60 mph through pitch darkness.

    Once my buddy gets over the wallet pain of fixing all the parts he broke on his bike when he went down, he's going to be getting a set of your lights too. Thanks again for an awesome product!! :thumb :thumb

    Does anyone run an on/off switch, on top of using the rotary dimmer switch, or just run with them always on, same as the stock headlight?

    I have on/off switches with the rotary dimmer. I can turn them on without any other light being on.

    After all the noise interference with my radio, I just use the lights with my high beams. I added some ferrites, but they will still kill my radio signal.

    Mine are always on at a lower setting, but go to full on with the high beams. I can always shut them off with the rotary dimmer switch if I need to.

    Is the M50 housing the same 70 x 55 size as the existing 44's and 60's? I would guess its illumination would significantly out distance the 30's? Looking forward to seeing some output comparison photos.
    I have a well used 44 that flickers more off than on, this could be a good replacement. Maybe replace the other existing good 44 with a 60 at the same time, if you think that would be a noticeable upgrade.

    whats the throw difference between the 30's and the 50's? I see the 50's have a higher lumen rating but also a wider beam. at say 300' which one would be brighter? and would these survive the vibration on the crash guard on my parallel twin f800GS?

    thanks and I hope to place an order this week!

    Has anyone ever mounted their lights on Happy Trail PD Nerfs for the 2008+ KLR650n that is shown in this picture? Have you used the ADVmonster Crash Bar Light Mount? I would really like to see the install pictures close up. Sanjoh says they will work but then in the description is says it will work with bars 30mm, 27mm, 25mm and 23mm. I don't think those bars are that big.

    I see the M15 spots sold as pairs at a very affordable price. Anyone using these? How does the light output compare with the M30, M50, M60 that you all seem to be discussing?

    Looking at setting up a light bar across the nose of my sidecar....
