Relocated my lights to use the original OEM aux light mounts (had to fabricate a piece to bolt to the original mount). This works tons better and looks better too.

I like it better now, however, you still need to crank up the engine hp a bit to overcome the wind resistance, personally it's a bit too much for me. I went from no lights to way too many lights (lights everywhere), back to only a set of 60s and that's it for me.

Sanjoh, do you have wide beam lenses or prismatic lenses available for the 61 or 62? Id like to use them for close cornering lights.

The Model 44 or Model 60 will give you a wide beam.

All well and good there as I have a 60 already, I just need lower power cornering lights. The stock Dr650 stator wont support too much more draw on it.

This reminds me of body piercing. Not that there is anything wrong with that.

There's been no recent mention of the flashlight that sanjoh sells but it's become my nightly go to light. Love everything about it except that the switch comes apart if you change the battery via the tail cap. I just take the head off instead.

Highly recommended, ESP if you've ever spent real money on a flashlight. This sucker is almost free.

haven't read all 200+ pgs but have a question anyway, why do you need a or want a dimmer on your lites don't you want them on full bright isn't that why your putting them on the bike to see what goes bump in the night so you don't. also other than a switch of some kind what else do you need with them? Thanks Mike

These lights are really dazzling for other road users if not controlled properly.

Full bright is blinding to oncoming traffic, so unless you want to be run over, dimming helps make the lights more traffic friendly while providing full power with a flip of your high beam switch.

I'm thinking of putting your Blk model 44's with M-30's or using
Model60's with the M-30's any suggestions or would these combo's
work together for up close and way out there thanks Mike

I like the recessed look to the 60's, but what about cooling airflow? Is there a limit to how long can you run them at slow speed without overheating? Did you wire in a relay with 16 LEDs drawing current? Any radio interference? Those 64's are big in comparison aren't they! I'd love to see some nite shots on a long straightaway the 60's, the 64's and all on, and with the Ford lights for comparison.
