Both mounts are included as well as shipping in the US. I also have push button on/off waterproof switch for $10. Paypal to sandjoh at gmail.com

Well it's entirely up to you but on my DR I bought the light mount brackets from Jeff at procycle. DR page here. Can't link directly to the item on the page. If you use Sanjoh's flat mount it should bolt right up.

here's a pic from their site (using someone else's lights.)



the mount is solid and works well. Plus it cost's like $9.

EDIT 205'd by sanjoh. doh.

On my DR650...

I mounted the lights to my Acerbis Hand Guards as shown. I wanted to keep the lights out of ANY line of fire. If I damage them now... Well, then I probably deserve it.



Lights 2

Lights 3

LIghts 4

Here is my switch. $4 at Shucks auto. Probably not waterproof, though I did silicone caulk around the edges. Above the main on/off switch, I wired in a momentary switch that I pulled out of a used dishwasher. Again, probably not waterproof. But if they fail, I'll get one of the switches that Sanjoh uses.

Switch 1

Switch 2

Sanjoh,

Please post up here when you get new supplies of the spot and flood lights. I am not really interested in the dimmable lights.

would it be possible to get the flood and spot led kit and hook the spot to come on with the stock low beam and the flood to come on when the high beam is switched on?

You would just have to run seperate relays to activate the lights via the trigger ex hi or low. I would also put in a switch to turn them all the way off if your on the road. They reflect on fog because they are so bright.

Some good ideas on mounting. No matter where I end up mounting them, I want to be able to adjust in/out and up/down. With these mounts, the only way that works is if the are mounted with the base in-line with the length of the bike (longitudinally??). If mounted using bigalsmith's way or using the ProCycle mounts, your ability to adjust where the light goes is limited. RAM mounts are a possibility, but I'd prefer a more rigid mount.

Here are a couple of pics of some Discount Auto Parts "el Cheapos", mounted on my DL 1000.

I ordered a set of lights from Sandjoh, so I sholuld just be able to switch out these lights and leave everything else in place. The sizes look to be quite close

I just used one of the front fender bolts to attch the lights. I cut little squares of inner tube material and put them between the base of the light and the fender. These "cheapos", have been pretty decent, but draw 70 watts all the time. Sandjoh's lights (floods), are 27 watts each, for a total of 54 at full power. The Strom is a little "stator challenged", so being able to run with less amp draw is a good thing.

The following images are not controlled for exposure, they were all done using my smartphone camera, which has rather basic controls.

I went outside early this morning to capture images while it's dark. Now I have some idea of the real power of these floods.

First, the garage door with the stock headlight. Note the yellow cast to everything, and in particular the parts of the garage door that are outside of the light pattern, as compared with the second photo. This is partly a result of the camera changing exposure for the vastly differing light levels.



With both LEDs burning, the stock headlight's pattern is almost completely gone. See how white the background is? The camera sees this light as very natural and bright enough to get much truer color reproduction.




The next set of images were taken with the bike in the same position (perhaps 8 feet from the garage door). This will help you to understand the amount of light, as the scene is lit by the reflection from the garage door.

I bought these a month or so ago. I have been following this thread and note some of you want to know how to assemble the connectors. Please see the links on page 3 for some assembly instructions. I didn't need to use the connectors, but some may. Just helping out a great vendor.
