ADVmonster Combo Light Blinker

We are looking for feedback on the feasibility of this product. You've heard of led blinkers and led lights but usually not in the same small form factor.

We've taken our Model 44 and converted 2 of the LEDs to a blinker. You end up with a 1000 lumens for lighting and 1000 for the blinker. These are for augmenting your existing blinker system.

Here's a brief video. This is in sunlight @ noon in South Florida. The camera can't deal with the amount of light so it is a bit muted.

Nice. Now put an amber shield on that half of the light and it might even look DOT to the casual observer.

Updated, soon to be added to the website

The video can't do the lights justice, they are much brighter than they appear in this video.

Blinkers working with full output driving light.






Blinker only

Thumb Great Product!

I just got back from 3200 miles of adventure on and off road with the set that is on my bike. They worked great despite my having developed a problem staying upright whenever I encounter any kind of terrain variance.

The blinkers are very bright, probably the brightest turn signals I've ever seen. I don't worry so much any more about some cager not seeing me at a stop light when I have these on, even during the day.

Having running lights and turn signals in the same package cleans up the amount of stuff hanging off the front of my bike, too, so it looks cleaner.

I have the amber LEDs connected directly to my bike's turn signal wires and the white LEDs to my dimmer module, so I can regulate the intensity of the brightness since they will still wash out my headlight if I run them too bright. My dimmer module has the high beam bypass, so the white LEDs go to full brilliance when I hit my high beam switch.

The amber LEDs work independently of the white LEDs.

Hmmm, now I'm thinking I should rig up some rear turn signals with these

What a great idea. I have been looking at some of the other aux lights on the site and thought I had decided......now I see these. Back to the thinking board.

As I guy that already runs your driving lights on the front of my bike, I would be interested in a full AMBER LED to replace the cheese ball amber turn signals on the REAR of my KLR.

I would be up for some, IF and WHEN they come with the more robust mounting bracket you have been showing us!

Something like a full amber 10W LED turn signal would be ideal.

Combination turn/tail/brake light feasibility?

I'm tired of these wimpy little things that vibrate apart, are too tiny to see, etc. Would really love some kind of solution, Sanjoh! DOT legal or not.

Buying some of these combination turn/spots very soon. Just what I've been looking for, for the front. Now, please, help us not be rear-ended.

I've been using an older model led for a brake light in addition to the oem taillight. It is mounted under the tail rack. The light with the prizmatic red lens pretty much stops most cars in their tracks!

l'd be happy to make you a lens.

Very interested in these. Can someone post a night pic to give me an idea of the output of the flood light portion of this light?

Great idea!

Do you have to source them from advmonster then you mod them or can you get them elsewhere?
