F800GS - show us your lights
 
Hi,
we were thinking mounting aux lights on the little one.
Perfect location could be on the blinker mounts.
Anyone mounted lights already ?
Where ? How ?
Show us your babe, please.

2.4 watt LEDs and 35w Philips HID
 
I run heated gear so saving power with the measely 400w alternator was of prime importance for the lighting.
Here is my setup-each Handguard contains one luxeon K2 LED driven @ 700ma with a regulated driver

nice triangle with the stock lights. nice cause they turn with the steering

Looks great ...
 
Tell us (who know too little about LED's) more about your LED set-up ...

Where did you buy the LED's ?? Regulated driver ?? How are they wired ??

Thanks - Larry

Here is all the info you need to put together the conspicuity LEDs-
The simple wiring diagrams are on the data sheets below.
I wired them into the canbus plug (under the faux tank) so they turn on automatically and turn off 30 seconds after the key is turned off.

# Part............MFG..................Price .........Qty
02008B-700 ...LED DYNAMICS $19.79............ 1
HL11K-W .......Dialight ..........$18.40 ............2
...............................Total: $69.49



above is all you need. Two light engines and one driver = 3 pcs.

Part # are above
the LED light engines comes complete with 3 different interchangeable lens.
here is the website
http://www.futureelectronics.com/en/Pages/index.aspx



70bux total includes 2 day shippinghttp://f800riders.org/forum/images/s..._smile_big.gif
now just get a hole saw (the size is Diameter = 34.7mm (1.37”)
and have at it. or find a another mounting spot...just make sure you post pictures and tell us all about it

here are the data sheets
http://www.leddynamics.com/LuxDrive/...-PowerPuck.pdf

http://www.dialight.com/Assets/Broch...XLUMHL11K2.pdf

Edit -Oh yea You get 3 snap on lenses with the light engines(LEDs) (a spot , a Flood & an oblong beam) I chose the oblong lens and rotated it until I had the traingular pattern, then siliconed it to the Light engine, to seal it and to be sure it wouldnt pop off.

Thanks for the information .....

LED's are cool !!

Jesse.
You are a genius. Trying to decide which handguards to go with and after seeing this I may just go back to thinking OEM as opposed to TT or Barkbuster...
I see you put the spoilers on both top and bottom.. I always thought they weren't voluminous enough, but with two spoilers... hmmmm.... notice any better wind protection with them? I know the BMW's with just one spoiler are pretty panned for their lack of wind protection, so does this solve that in any way OR if I want both lever AND wind protection should I look elsewhere?

Also, would those lights work with handguards that lack a relatively flat front angle? (like TT that rake back).


Thanks!

I am now- very happy with the wind protection as my thumbs were hanging out without the bottom spoilers. The OEM handguard backbones seem so strong I am not even buying spare levers (~$80 bux each:puke1 ) I will keep my little
visegrip handy just in case.

I would recommend using the wunderlich handle bar adjusters to easily adjust the Bars, handguards,lights, levers, mirrors and gps when going from street position to off road (standing).
the wunderlich adjusters can be seen here on the bar clamps (cheap too)

The LED light engines need to be relatively level but can be adjusted by rotating them with the oblong lens. your could also mount the LEDS eslehere on the bike. Dialight also has multi LED engines :eek1 check there website

mrpete64 01-16-2009 02:07 AM

waterproof??
 
I think your idea of mounting lights in the handle bar protectors is a great idea. One question...are they waterproof?
Mr. Pete--->

kktos 01-19-2009 01:16 AM

no more installation ?
my friend installed lights recently. I'll take some picts and post them.
result is very classy. but the lights are a bit cheap.... so much for enlightment :D
Need to find better lens.

Aux lights for F650GS twin
 
I made a mount for my Aux lights from a cooking pan that I bought at Ross. I mounted the Trail Tech 2" 16 watt HID lamp to work with the high beam. I have the beams angled to high and outside so that I have some light in twisties. I can't seem to attach photos. Where can I get some help? http://picasaweb.google.com/boyd.ran...eat=directlink
