QFT..... Sanjoh sells a great product. I got in the last 30 sale and man are those things bright. I'm running no dimmer with the lights down on the fork. I leave home in the dark and these lights are soooooo much better to ride with.

Sanjoh's a stand up man. I've met him and he stands behind his product.

I'll be back for another set once the funds are available.

i don't know much about wiring and such, so i hope someone can help me here.

I have bought a pair of ADV 60's and have them installed already,
I have a set of adv 30's to add as well....


the questions is, can i run all 4 lights on the same power wires that run to the fuze block? i used 18ga wire and would like to just tap into the same wires.

You should be good with the 18 gauge for that load. It's only around 50 or 60 watts for all four lights IIRC. Someone will be along to correct me if I'm wrong soon though

No problem with 18g and all four lights. 76 watts at max power. Here is a good reference.

The horn circuit may work, the switch will not as it is momentary on. What type of bike is it? Which model lights?

I guess ground works the same. Bike is in pieces in the garage until I get this figured out.
Switched fused power is recommended. Your description of the relay will work.

Depending on where you draw your power from, this diagram can work:

sanjoh, do you sell brackets to flush mount your lights? (I'm thinking more headlight replacement as opposed to auxiliary lighting).

Also, I'm assuming the latest Model 30 sale at the end of March has ended, correct?

10a will be fine. Figure each Model 44 pulls 1.8a each.

5 amp for two lights, ten for four!

Remember, you are protecting the wiring, not the lights. Keep the fuse close to the accessory max to minimize wire damage in the event of a short.

What exactly plugs into terminal 86 on the relay. Check your email as I cannot attach pics yet.
