Have to say - yeah - looks awesome naked... that's a plan for this evening for me.....
"Adventure Man Cave" headlight kit review:
This is was an initial production item so I had to install it without written instructions, however, it was dead easy
Not overly costly either ...paid about 200 euros
The results are nice:
And the lighting improved dramatically
After ...much better but I prefer without the yellow filters though
How about blinding oncoming traffic? Is there any beam cutoff to speak of?
Are these BAJA DESIGN Squadron Headlamps or some rebuilds?
It can either work like the stock lights
bottom one pointing a bit down as a low beam (top one off), and the top one as a high beam (bottom one off) ...this is how I did
FYI: The picture in the previous post is with the low beam on only
As the current draw is likely much lower, I'll eventually modify it to have bottom one on for low beam and both (top and bottom) when switching to high beam
The complete kit costed me 200 euros ...I think one single Baja Design lamp is just as much.
This is a copy, and I don't know how they compare, I can only tell you these are much better than the stock ones, which are quite bad IMHO
Here's the link to their FB page
The Kansas plains have been a bit chilly recently
Anybody else actually riding while the weather is less than optimal? Let’s see where you are!
Thanks for the pics!
I'm curious about the front fender. Where is it from? How is it attached (especially on the left side with the brake caliper)?
Not sure, it's beautiful here in Mexico!
Nope. It was 100°F in Perth today.
Inside with aircon.
Front fender was on when I got it and I really like the function and the looks. It was bought out of Europe and mentioned earlier in this thread. This is Debandis old bike.
Still waiting for mine (2021 models are just getting out of the factory)... I’m lucky I have other bikes and a nice playground otherwise I’ll got nuts!
Friday I can pick mine up, countdown has started
You very lucky man!
Where do you live?
Please post pictures!!!
I ordered mine in October and still no pick up date...
look up SKENE dimmer, if you dont already know about it,,, you can run those lights at low setting on low beam and full power on high beam, i run mine at 20% on low for example.
Dimming the light is, for obvious reasons, a very poor substitute for a proper lowbeam pattern.
yes it is, but these are auxiliary spot light not headlights, so are in themselves a very poor means of primary vehicular lighting in the first place.
I’m thinking a bit about how the ”drl” lights on cars are wired, during daytime they are on with full brightness, but when it gets darker outside the drl either dims down quite a bit, or is simply switched off when main lights turn on - would like to see something similar for motorcycles, I’ve met a couple of bmw boxers lit up like xmas trees during the dark hours, the main beam is dipped but the aux ones are not.
Edit: the original post which started this trail of discussion concerned using the lights as mains.
Edit 2: :deadhorse I’ll bugger off now
