Excellent!

Great info about the lights! I take it you are happy with that combination . Did you give any thought to using 60 and 20 degree lights? Does the combination you are using fill in the middle distance as well?

Cheers,

Adrian

I actually thought about going with a 10 and a 40.... the 10 is WONDERFUL! and the 60 is great and brighter than my jeeps low beam. Only reason behind wanting a 40 is that I don't plan on any low speed riding. which the 60 is great for.

60 / 10 combo however has plenty and no gaps

Thumb Excellent effort mate

Those lights seem well bright, more than enough for what I'm after. Still wondering though, which combination would be best for night riding in Oz on dirt roads, lots of things jump out at you..... I'd be using the 40 or 60 degree as the equivalent of a low beam and don't really need a pencil beam for the high, perhaps the 20 degree and the 'low' wired together would be sufficient?

Apologies for the thread drift Paul and thanks again for the piccies Motorfiets .

Cheers,

Adrian

Ben, you've been busy, thanks for the lead on the VisionX LED's.

I've been looking at a frame mounted production version, but not sure if I want to make a bolt on or force guys to weld frame mounts and I know this might be stepping out for most guys, but they'll most likely be HDPE. It's down the road a bit, but we have proto's out there being tested.
Paul;

When you are referring to the 96, 100 and 106mm towers, where/how does the measurements differ?

I'm still wanting to get a tower for my KTM 640 if you ever get the time to sort something out??
Is there some way to make a generic fits all HDPE tower so we can just buy the parts and make them fit?? By bolting them up inside or outside and having multiple holes to get the angles right??

Cheers, and keep up the good work!

We just put 1200 miles of racing in Baja on the Kit. Worked flawless! Amazing stuff!

Seconds after install in Cave Creek, AZ



1200 miles later in San Jose del Cabo, Baja Mexico

The bike was cartwheeled at about 50mph in a rocky silt bed, nothing broke but my teamate's helmet visor.


One of the coolest things about this Kit (imo) is how easy the install is. I flew to AZ from Colorado with the parts in my luggage. Teamate and chase crew picked me up in Phoenix. We installed it in a borrowed garage in under and hour and raced with it 2 days later. We didn't even have to take the tank off.

I am looking at this kit and wondering how hard it would be to mount this on my g650x challenge, I have a custom lower clamp that allowed me to hook up a set of ktm wp 48mm forks, so I have the same mounting holes, but not sure if this would work with the top... any thoughts?
