Anyone has installed F11 or M15 to the KTM 1190 Adventure?
My daughter bought me an M60 for Xmas, which arrived today. Thnx for the super quick shipping, and wishing you a Merry Xmas. Nice looking light!
That F40 is a good looking rig, why must you tempt me? any info on wattage yet? and I have been having battery issues since I installed the M60s and controller I got a couple months ago, Is there any amp draw from the controller when it's off? or is my battery on its way out? either way, I love these bright-ass LED man, good job!
The controllers do pull a small amount (20ma) of power even if off. We recommend using switched power (on/off with bike).
If you aren't using switched power you will need a trickle charger or just ride more
Where is it better to mount aux lights? Higher or lower?
I have an 08 KLR and I have choices of mounts to either go on the fairing (pointing where the headlight goes) or the forks slightly above the fenders (pointing where the wheel goes)
overall, I see pros & cons both ways. Up high, less likely to get smashed in a fall or hit by brush in the woods, but they arent "dynamic" and moving with the bike as I ride. I *feel* that the higher they are mounted, the better chance that ill be seen by oncoming cars and be able to throw the light further.
Down low, about the only pro I can see is the ability to move with the forks wherever im steering. I feel the throw could be slightly put at a disadvantage and at more risk for rock/brush damage.
personal opinion is to mount high.
Does that include the Rotary LED Dimmer with High Beam Bypass? That may explain the degrade in battery performance after I installed the dimmer and the M30's on the GSA. Or the battery's just wearing out.
Those pitch black dips in the road get shallower the higher up you mount the spots.
At your site and the 'inmate' discount code is not accepted.
No more discount or different code?
fixed, "inmate" good for 10% off
I missed that there's an inmate discount when I placed my order. I'll definitely remember next time!
I installed a pair of M60s + dimmer on my F650GS over the weekend and while I've tried the lights out twice at night, I'm impressed both with the increased visibility other road users have of me, and how much brighter these lights are at night when on high. It's difficult to say exactly, but they seem to be twice as bright as the puny OEM high beam, and that's with the M60s still pointing to the ground a bit.
Anyway, I have a question - with the dimmer set to anything other than the lowest setting, off, or full, one of my lights makes an audible high pitched humming noise. The dimmer I bought is the "Rotary LED Dimmer with High Beam Bypass". Is this to be expected?
Two model 30's and a model 60 + my high beam with a OEM spec bulb in the middle of nowhere Tx.
Could you please post a picture of your installation? I have an 09 G650 and have interest in seeing the possibilities. Thanks.
The rotary dimmer pulls .0065a when off.
Here you go.
Admittedly in that position there's a little movement. A more rigid position would be near the indicator stalks but I want people to see when I'm turning. Or not.
what exactly would I need in addition to the lights. I want to use a skene dimmer and a handlebar switch. I'm thinking about a 30 and a 44.
I'd think about the 60 if my Tiger had a better alternator.
You'll need to mount the lights. The Tiger electrical should be able to handle the M60s easily. I ran a couple of 55w halogens when I had my tiger, no problem. A pair of M60s is less than 60w. Keep in mind if you are using a dimmer, the power consumption is significantly reduced while in the dimmed mode. Typically when you have the high beams on you are moving, thus creating a bit more power from the electrical system.
Another happy customer
I got my model 30's installed. I am really pleased with the ease of install and quality of the products. Thanks so much for the great products and great service. The lights make it a joy to ride at night.
