Thanks for the support
Congrats on the high honors in the latest issue of Overland Journal!!!
Thanks travel toad can't wait to see the issue and once they finish the light bar test
Ok, so I'm lazy. This is cut and pasted from another thread. It's my night ride from the other night:
Well here are some pics of the Squadron. Pictures do no justice. This light is freaking amazing! When used with the Double Strykr helmet light it blazes the trail.

And lets not forget my close call with a tree next to the side of the mountain!
Keep in mind it was a cloud cover and pitch black the other night. Another thing to remember is proper aiming of the Squadron is the key. I had a hell of a time getting it to aim just right.
To make it easier for the next guy here is what you do: install the light with the two bottom bolts removed. Tilt at your liking. Mine is setup the old school way. Took a measurement from ground to center of light. Go against a wall, make a mark 2" lower than your first measurement, bring the lamp back 17 feet or so from the wall. Top of beam "circle" should be just below, even or higher than the mark on the wall. Test ride and adjust to your preference.
I actually trimmed back the mask "ears" and got the lamp closer with plenty of clearance from wires etc:
Don't laugh too hard about the bags. I have a bag everywhere I could fit one including a 6 liter "tree hugger" collapsible fuel cell. My Beta is a fully self contained adventure bike.
Thanks Baja Designs... now the riding day does not end at night.
LED vs HID...
Is there a kit that goes on the KTM 690? Is it a complete mask replacement or does it bolt in where your OEM headlight goes? Does it connect to the existing wiring and does it give you hi/lo beam using your OEM switch or are there some other steps required to get this set up? I gather you can adjust the power on low beam to make it street legal(ish)??
It is absolutely amazing to now have light that I am not outriding... at over 100mph!
The Squadrons are absolutely amazing.
I seem to have lost one of the little bolts that holds the left Squadron light in place on the mounting bracket. Are these little bolts BD specific, or can I pick one up at the local hardware store?
Is that a really big bike... or a really small trail?
You can pick the hardware up at your local store just make sure thread matches as well
Thanks for the support guys much appreciated
Glad your loving the lights. Have fun riding
What fork clamp solutions can you guys think of to attach two Baja Design Squadron's to my bike?
Can you show us how you mounted those squadrons on the SE?
I want to know how to mount too!!
I was given a bracket... from a 950/990 Adv that I modified to fit the SE. It bolts between the fender and the lower triple. I will try to get some close up photos tomorrow.
Who makes that bracket? There is a sticker on it.
Yes, yes... but I have to get to the sticker. I will find the brand tonight.
thanks. I saw something over at blackdog that fits between the lower triple clamp and the fender. $80 aluminum waterjet bracket out of .25" plate.
It does not seem like those little screws would have the strength to hold a light.
I would still be interested in some pics.
Yeah, I looked last night. I will have to pull the fender to get the brand or get any pics. I will do that this weekend.
