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


HID Ballast on gauge support bracket

handguard striaght on




LEDs only



HID lowbeam and the leds together



Full Blast with Highbeam (55watt Philips extreme power) Low 35watt HID and LEDS 2.4 watt x2 luxeon Total power 98.8 Watts





HID in main reflector

I also installed the OEM euro LED turnsignals

Question 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 shipping
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.

Did you have any problems installing 55w in reflector? (melting, warping, etc...)

I don't know, because of the heat. Somebody said that 55W HID has a higher temperature output than the 55W halogen. Well, I guess they were wrong.........

May be thinking of the color temperature of the bulb - I believe HIDs have a higher color temperature than halogens. The halogens are somewhere around 3,000K, while HIDs are higher

Check out the discussion on color temperature on wikipedia, probably more information than most people can stand (or understand) but it gives you a reference. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Color_temperature While surfing, I also found this gem on the various automotive lighting standards.
