    Ok, here are some images-

    The front of the mask with the H4 bulb installed- the screw on the bottom allows for vertical adjustment-

    The rear -

    I removed the bulb and the found that the mounting area is about 65 mm across-

    [​IMG]

    The diameter of the model 60 is shown on your site as 55mm- this just might work!

    I'll have to cut up the reflector housing, but it won't be used anyway.

    How much does the model 60 weigh?

    Those are hIgh beam pics. To give it perspective, the concrete slab on the side of the gravel driveway is 32 feet long.

    Still interested in this light, but am concerned about what oncoming drivers see. Sanjoh, could you provide a night picture of the low beam from oncoming traffic?

    The low beam is adjustable from off to full on, 8 steps/increments. This is a picture of the low beam on step 4 (of 8) which is what I consider an acceptable amount of low beam light to see stuff. I've never been flashed by oncoming traffic at night or during the day with this setting. Pic taken about from about 150 ft.

    Same spot with high beam:huh

    Low beam from the riders perspective

    High beam from riders perspective same spot as low beam pic. Tree about 300ft away from bike.

    Awesome.

    So to clarify, per your site, that KTM mask PN is the same as the stock 2012 500 EXC mask? Or is that PN from a 2011?
    Also, everything I need is $70?
    And whats the wattage draw?
    Thanks

    It will fit your 2012 500 exc mask.

    $70 gets you the mounting and electrical kit without light, choose which light you want and add that to the price.

    With the Model 60, the light will pull 28 watts on full power, low beam on Step 4 (of 8) uses 3 watts.

    dr650 and dz400 both use them same headlight shell
    as well as the drz250.

    I just received my kit that I am planning on adapting to my KLX450R headlight assy.

    One question about LED orientation-

    Should the LED's be setup in a + configuration or in 2 rows of 2, like this :: ?

    Either configuration will work, no difference in light output or light pattern. Question is do you want a diamond or a square:D

    Momma don't know what she doesn't know:wink:

    Yes, but our dualsport fairing is a much better option for more road oriented bikes.

    I love the new headlight. Not clear on where the controls for the light brightness go - sticky on handlebar? Pic would help.

    The "controls" are meant to be mounted inside the mask, near the light. These are intended to work in conjunction with your high beam switch on your handle bars. The electrics are plug n play. Here's an example on a husky, electrics are mounted to the left of the light. Once you get the low beam at a happy place, you don't need to mess with it, works just like the stock light with low beam/high beam just a small difference in output:evil

    Wanted to confirm the light is ok on AC power like KTM generates for the headlight. Specifically, for the light to go full bright, you don't need DC at the switch or light, just flip the switch to high beam on the handlebar?

    The lights need DC power to operate. We are working on an AC solution:deal
