I'm curious to see the size in relation to the motorcycle.
In the meantime, go get an empty full size kleenex box. It has nearly the same frontal dimensions as the light. Cut the box down to 3.5" length and you'll have two mockup lights (from one kleenex box) to stick on your bike and experiment.
To get you started, dimensions are:
4.25" (108mm) x 4.25" (108mm) square frontal area, depth: 3.5" (89mm), 4.75" (121mm) from mount to top of light.

OK great, I'd definitely need 2 of those for adequate illumination

I'm certain you can do better illumination with a set of these:

When comparing the new square models with the round ones, what are the main differences?
From the specs it looks like they use the same LED and have the same current draw. Is it just a better reflector design?

Perhaps you should talk to them, sell them some low current draw lights that work.

Reflector design and physical size.

Thumb Holy Snap!

Ordered Feb. 8 (late in day). Received today (Feb. 18)... on the west coast of Canada. An entire continent and one international border in 5 business days. Unbelievable. Thanks John!

I still have no idea how I'm gonna mount them on the NG KLR, but at least I have them to play with. Great service!

Thanks for your business. Perhaps Tallguy will get his wish after all

Pictures would be much appreciated.

About 3-4 years back I built one of the kit lights from ledsupply and was so impressed with it I machined new housings and built a few more redesigned/finned housings using larger LED drivers that up the output by about a third. Amazing how much light can come out of that small of a unit! My whole light is two inches in diameter but the actual led is about 1/8 inch diameter with a .8 of on an inch diameter lens!

A couple months back a buddy and I did a side by side comparing my light to these Monster lights. Although they both put out about the same amount of light the Monster's have a lot more focused beam where mine are more of a flood type. Hating to be out done I immediately orderd a couple of the Monster's as well.

Two of these on the front of a scooter is WAY overkill! I only added one!

I was coming home the other night after finally taking the time to aim it correctly and was on a secondary highway. As I crested a hill that is about 3 miles distant from the next hill a car came over that distant hill and even at three miles he flashed his brights for me to dim mine! YEAH, they are THAT bright!

Use caution if using them in any non off road application though, as I am positive they would get you a ticket.
