    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.

    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.

    How do the Model 30 LED off road Spot lights compare to the $319 auxiliary LIGHTS KTM sells for the 990 Adventures? Will the supplied brackets mount them under the fairing of the 990 Adventure the way the KTM lights mount? Also, what is the difference between the standard lights and the heavy duty lights? Thanks!

    Here is a thread on the KTM kit. Looking at the beam pictures in that thread, a pair of model 30s will offer: 1) significantly longer throw/distance, way beyond the stock high beam. 2)more light closer to the bike.

    The M30 will mount to a stud or flat surface. Looks like that kit comes with some additional brackets.

    Donnie, John,

    The 990 above is mine (and my buddy's Africa twin), both with Model 60, same as model 30 in terms of size.

    My mechanic made a couple of aluminum brackets to mount the lights under the cowling, they can be seen in the first pic arising from the fairing's side. It's a bit over engineered and not really necessary but they are very well made.
    You can also install them using a simple straight steel angle on each side of front frame, mounted vertical, using the horn mount holes and identical holes on the other side of the front frame.

    Well hello Guys and gals!

    I'm here for my long overdue feedback on John's customer service! All I can say is that I'm amazed about not only his products, but also of how he deals with customers!

    Send him a PM a month ago to ask him how long he'd need to ship to France since I was going on a trip and needed to replace my spot LED light from him (discovered that you can't run two different sets of lights with the autoswitch AS7: was running the M60 flood and M30 spot model). He was able to ship in less than a week to my home and even offered me a full refound for the model I wasn't going to use (by the way John I think that I'll keep it for my GF's bike, but really thanks again for the offer)! Model that I've bought back in august! I've never seen such a devoted vendor! Be sure that when I get my new bike in february that I'll buy some more lights from you!

    Cheers mate!

    We are transitioning to a new website! Check it out here.

    If you have any challenges with the new site, please contact me, we love to hear from customers:deal

    "Just some general feedback, which I'm happy for you to use a testimonial or whatever: After looking for some time at various auxillary lighting options, including some name brands at the recent Sydney Motorcycle Show, I decided to buy a pair of M60 flood lights with rotary dimmer, so I'd be more visible during the day, and improve my visibility at night, particularly on country roads. I've alway been a bit dubious of manufacturers claims of light output, but even just one M60 on full is much, much brighter than my stock high beam, with the beam longer and wider. And with a pair, I can set the aim to fill the road and into the bush, making it much safer to ride at night at highway speeds. I haven't been able to find anything that comes close in price or quality.

    Thanks again, it really is a great product"

    I am already running a set of the original Denali lights on my Tenere. I have them mounted low on the crash bars. I would like to add more light just below my factory headlights. I am thinking fog lights but not sure..

    [​IMG]

    I was looking at your F11 fogs and your M15 spots which would you recomend?

    Also wondering if your dimmer switch could handle all four lights at once?

    Thanks!

    Are the Denalis spot or flood beam? Where are you needing more light, distance, width or both?

    Yes, the dimmers are rated by ampacity with up to 6 amps for the rotary dimmer or 8 amps for the wireless dimmer. Your system would be around 4 amps with the additional lights.

    I'm looking to mount a pair to the top of my highway bars on a cruiser (Rocket 3 Touring), to illuminate the edge of the road for deer, do you think spots or floods would be a better choice?

    And to clarify, you can tie them in with your high beams so that when the high beams are on they are on full brightness, but when you flip your high beams off, they revert to whatever the dimmed setting is? And can they be used in conjunction with a relay setup, for me specifically the Eastern Beaver?

    Hi!

    I have read of a few folks using 1" angle iron, aluminum in my case, to mount Model 30 LEDs and other Leds that are the same size. I have removed the cowlings, I have the angle aluminum, but I can't seem to understand how to make it work. It is my understanding that you use the horn mounting holes. how do you do this and retain the horn. Looks like the angle iron will have to be shaped considerably. But maybe I am over looking the obvious. I would appreciate some help! :deal I am trying to get my moto headed from Mississippi to Central America. Of course I have to stop in south Mexico and pick up my "novia"! :evil Photos of my moto are included. Thanks!

    Hi!

    I am in the process of placing an order for the 3rd time. My item never left the Cart and I received no confirmation, so I am assuming something went wrong. I only want one pair of mounts. Please disregard any more than one order. Thanks!

    Donnie

    OK! I got an order number this time!

    Changed from the brackets in the photo above to the Ezy-Mount light brackets, which are much, much more rigid.

    Even happier with the lights now, not to mention the service from John.
