    Looks good but I would color the output wires different than the input. I could see people hooking it up backwards.

    Yeah, I am going to change the design a bit on the wiring side. I think it would make things easier and cleaner if all the wires came out from a single grommet. When we do that, we'll use different color wires for input and output. We're also going to make the wires 2 feet, my thinking being that it will be easier for people to cut to their needs depending on where it's mounted, instead of having to splice if they need longer wires. Then you can shrink wrap the whole batch of wires going to the dimmer if wanted as well for a cleaner install.

    Is this a hard off, i.e. a potentiometer with switch contacts? Also, how weather proof is the dimmer? Amp capacity?

    Yes, hard off. Has full click to off position. When fully off, the bypass will not work either. When the dimmer is at the 0 position, the lights will be off, but bypass will work. Amp capacity is 7 amps. We'll eventually have one with two knobs and 2 7 amp channels as well. The case and wire grommets will be sealed with 3m 4200. The knob will be sealed with a rubber sealing washer and 4200. So it will be very weather proof.

    Justin,
    I'm very interested in a pair of LR4 lamps. I have left a message on your website regarding shipping to the UK.

    Now a question about this dimmer. Would it effectively replace the need for an on/off switch as on a normal aux lamp set-up as on the Tiger800s? http://www.worldoftriumph.com/trium...ck_01=&block_02=100061038-0-2&block_03=560041
    If so, some method of mounting the dimmer to the handlebars would be a good idea.

    Thanks for your interest. I replied to your message sent from the website.

    As to the dimmer, yes, it can replace the need for a dedicated on/off switch. The dimmer box is pretty small, so it can easily be mounted just about anywhere with some 3M dual lock etc. Such, as on top of a brake/clutch reservoir.

    My momma always said the only stupid question is the one one you didn't ask :)

    In other news:

    Dimmers will be in very soon. Price point will put them at about $30 each with the permanent ADV discount :). If you need a simple, robust dimmer, that eliminates the need for a secondary switch - this will have you covered!

    Within the next few weeks we'll be introducing our new 4.5 inch, single LED, 25 watt spot light. We'll be doing a one time group buy deal on these, so make sure to check back if you're interested. After that, our normal pricing will be in effect. These will be the best lumen per dollar value on the market!

    For now, here's some teaser pics :)

    Massive light throw needs big reflectors - these lights are comparable in size to a 4-4.5 Inch HID:

    When we say "spot", we're not kidding :). These lights throw far and TIGHT.

    Optional clear and yellow snap-on covers allow you to tailor the beam to your needs in as much time as it takes to pop the lens covers on!

    More details coming soon. Any questions? Post them here!

    Those new ones look bad ass...



    I received my LR4 Floods and they are very nice! I may do a dimmer but since I ride this bike mostly off-road (during daylight) it's not a big issue. I want them on with the key so they're tied into the small running light over the headlight, that tells you how little power they draw. My buddy has the other brand and I can see no difference in quality or output, and I didn't have to pay extra for heavy-duty brackets. If they prove durable and there's good customer service down the road, than these are winners!

    In terms of brightness: When I did my nighttime adjustment, these are so bright it's almost hard to tell if my bike headlight is on or off....and my TE's headlight is a decent, modern, 55/60w light. If I get caught on the trail after dark, I'm in good shape now.


    Here's a big reason I want plenty of light on the front of my bike (from my CO-UT trip last Sept)... http://www.advrider.com/forums/showpost.php?p=23024931&postcount=16

    They look great but I think where you've mounted them they're going to drown out your indicators.

    Great looking ADV bike you have there. What model is it and I guess you're going to tell us it works great too.

    Are the square spot lights ACTUALLY better than the round flood lights for running 70 mph down the highway at night ???

    The square spots are half the price and alot less lumen,even though the beam is narrower.

    They definitely drown the turn signals. Not so much an issue on this bike because it's used 99% away from traffic. With two relays I could make each LED flash with the turn signals...


    Regarding the Husqvarna, I call it my TE630GS...:D, it's my go-anywhere touring bike. There's a link up there to my last RR.

    I assume you're referring to the LR62, since you said half the price? The range is about the same as the LR4, but the beam is much tighter. The deep reflectors bend more light forward, so you give up a lot of vision to the sides for the longer range.

    So,if I understand your statement.The lr4 reaches out just as far but with the side benefit of extra light out to the sides ?

    That's correct, more light overall. I run a combo of both. If I had to pick just one, I'd stick with the LR4's.

    How's the dimmer coming? I didn't see it on your web site.

    I'll have an update in the next few days on them.
