    They will be on the store next week. What kind of combo were you looking for. I only have one spot pattern and one flood pattern on hand after giving out a bunch of demo units, until next week.

    OK, I have the one spot and one flood left here at the moment. If you want them, shoot me a PM and I'll hook you up with a good deal on them, since the retail packaging isn't here yet for them :). I don't have the coupling hardware in stock till next week though. Probably don't want it for a two light set anyway.

    Hi Folks! We've finally released our new Modular light series. These lights join our monster LR5 series lights in the Pro series line up. Like the LR5, they are built to take a beating and stand up to whatever you can throw at them. The completely modular design allows you to connect multiple lights to meet your needs (spot/flood) and tailer the fit for your vehicle. For example, a common approach is a 4 or 5 light bar, with spots in the middle and floods at the end. Of course, they also make great lights without being coupled together as well.

    Quick Feature List:

    - Completely modular design. Connect multiple lights together as a light bar, square etc, or use alone.
    - 10 Watt Cree XM-L U2 chips
    - High quality computer modeled optics, available in 10 degree spot (smooth reflector) or 30 degree flood (patterned reflector)
    - Durable UV resistant finish
    - IP68 dust/waterproof with sealed Deutsch connectors
    - Protected against EMC/RFI interference
    - 2.5 inch Length/Width, 2.64 Inch Depth,
    - 2 Year Warranty

    Pricing is $60 per unit (about $50 with ADV15 discount :)).

    Spot: http://ledrider.com/shop/?<wbr>model_number=LRM10-S
    Flood: http://ledrider.com/shop/?<wbr>model_number=LRM10-F

    Spot on left, Flood right:

    Coupled together into a 5 light lightbar - 3 spots in the middle and floods on the outside.

    So I talked to Justin and got a pair, (one flood and one spot) of these to put on a DR650 to use off road with a Trail Tech halogen main headlight.
    Cool mounting system, great connectors, looks high quality, easy install.

    HOLY SHIT these put out some light!!!!!!!!!!!!:clap The trail tech seems like a old flashlight with the batteries almost dead in comparison.

    Ill try to get some pics up but i just got to tell you how impressed i am. I have used HID in the past and these are as good if not better but I am sure they will be less hassle and the power use and cost is way less.

    Thanks LEDrider

    You're welcome, and I'm glad you're happy with them. Thanks for the feedback - it pretty much sums up what we were shooting for with this light series :clap. High quality, great output and mounting flexibility at a price point that's easy on the wallet. Looking forward to your pictures.

    Got a chance to get some LR5 shots the other night. Remember, they are on sale right now:

    LR5 series sale links:

    Single LR5, 5000 Lumen light - Regularly $140, Sale Price $130

    LR5 Pair, 10,000 Lumens! - Regularly $275, Sale Price $255


    Here's a shot of two Silverstar H4 highbeams in action (in the Minivan). These are roughly 1500-1600 Lumens each.

    <IMG WIDTH="500" SRC="https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/31888011/IMG_6204.JPG">

    Here's a shot of two LR5's in action. Same manual camera settings as above.

    <IMG WIDTH="500" SRC="https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/31888011/IMG_6205.JPG">

    About 500 feet to the tree line at the farthest away trees, and the LR5's just rip through and light everything up. A set reaches out past 1000 feet, and unlike other lights with that claim, it's not a super narrow beam. You see everything. Pictures barely do them justice. Best bang for the buck for high quality, tough lights, that will take a beating and light up the night :deal

    I wanted something a little brighter than my stock 950A lights, (hold a bic lighter at arms length and you get the idea) and even with the PIAA's that came with the bike when I bought it, I still felt that I was riding blind at night.

    A pic of the bike, with the PIAA's just below the stock light's...

    So Justin came through with a great deal:
    http://advrider.com/forums/showpost.php?p=24306257&postcount=114

    and I bit into that like a hungry honey badger on a prarie dog.

    the kit:

    I needed to attach the light mount to my crash bar's so I had these made to do the task. The hose clamps are a bit cheezy, but I wanted to test out a few things so it works for now...And yeah, the bike is dirty, one of the benefit's of living on a long dirt road.

    and mounting the light's was easy, as I also opted for the harness. This took about 1 1/2 hours and 2 beer's.

    I still need to aim them, and I'll get a real life test ride on them shortly...

    Thanks again Justin! Easy install, great product!

    Edit: notice the sky color, changed by the auto dimmer on the go pro...

    Received! Look and feel extremely well made. Now just have to figure out how to install and wire them up.

    Thanks for the feedback. And yes, it's impossible to get good comparative shots with a camera that doesn't have manual settings. Looking forward to your thoughts after you get a night ride in :)

    Ok, my electrical knowledge sucks. I want to wire the dimmer to the high beam using the bypass option. On my Tiger 800XC, the high beam wire from the switch to the lights is a blue/white. Can I just splice in the blue dimmer wire to this? Or do I need a relay? I assume fused to be safe as well?

    If tapping input power into switched power (taillights), would that need a relay as well? Or just simply run a fused wire from the taillights up to the dimmer?

    Seems simple but these two things are holding me up. Guess I am wondering why the need for a relay if tapping in past the high beam switch.

    Thanks

    First off - second diagram on this page is what you want: http://ledrider.com/dimmer-wiring/

    Second thing to understand is that the blue highbeam wire does not supply any power. All it does is trigger an internal switch, that bypasses the dimmed setting and make the dimmer go to full power. No relay is need on that wire. A fuse is recommended (1-2 amp).

    You don't want to tap power from aux lights directly from an existing circuit. Power for aux lights should come directly from the battery or an accessory fuse block. The purpose of a relay is to switch the direct power on and off with ignition.

    Please shoot me an email if this isn't clear and I'll be happy to chat via phone to help you work through the wiring :)
