Thanks for a great product.
Thanks for the trip report, glad to hear you are happy with the product. You are spot on with the yellow vs white led light. The frequency (color temperature) of the lights approximates the sun around 5500k. Seems the human eyes recognize that frequnecy more readily than others.

Nice setup on your tiger. I'm doing the same thing to mine. Where did you mount the dimmer? And how are you wiring it? I was planning on using the oem foglight connector for power and tapping off the highbeam at the large connector behind the steering stem for the purple wire. Is that similar to your setup?

Btw, the Holan crashbars don't cover all the way up the side of the tank, only enough to cover the lower plastic piece, not the upper. And unfortunately, you have to remove them to remove the tank.

I placed the dimmer module at the very back of the bike under the rear rack plastic. There is quite a bit of space back there and much less under the seat so I combined the two lights into 1 cable and took it back to the dimmer. I then came back to a 3 block fuse where I have the lights hooked up as well as the Autocom and Radar detector. I installed a relay also so all are switched as I don't want to drain the battery. Everything works well. As far as the purple wire that needs to go to the high beam I ran a single # 18 AWG wire all the way up to the high/low beam switch on the handlebars and soldered it to the high low beam wire. I think it was green/white but I checked it with a voltmeter while switching the high and low switch to make sure it was the right wire.

Do not connect to the purple wire near the switch under the tank. It is on the wrong side of the high beam relay and causes the lights to be on full power and disables the remote. I tried that and just above the purple wire on the green/white and neither worked. Finally I got pissed off and took the wire to the switch itself. It is hardly noticable if you use black wire and I zip tied it to the heated grip cable and came out the side of the switch housing.

So far so good.. Hope that helps.

I saw another XR650R rider had mounted the LEDs this way. Looked like a good solution so thanks to him. Thanks Sanjoh! When I turn them on in my workshop the fm radio audio goes all fuzzy.

Can anyone supply comparative pix of the 44 and 60 lights' beam patterns, preferably against a wall at about 100 ft, preferably with the camera in manual exposure mode, so that no auto adjustment occurs from one image to the next) . I am thinking of the upgrade but I noticed that the images of the beam against the pool fence on the site appear to be the same and have the same file number. I was particularly interested in how the central hotspot compares to the general wash of light around it, as well as the comparative power.

The beam pattern on the model 60 is the same as the Model 44, imagine more light everywhere. Where the Model 60 flexs its lumens is distance, every time I turn em on I am amazed.

on happy trail nerfbars?

I have the Happy Trail Nerf Bars/skidplate/pegs on my green 08 klr. Does anyone have these lights mounted on the lower screw in the pic or somewhere on the bars? How bout on the lower screw of the actual fairing? I want them away from my blinkers and will probably have them on a switch or dimmer so as not to blind anyone in oncoming traffic off the road. I wouldn't mind mounting these on my jeep rack and getting rid of my huge KCs

(pic is from HT site)

We have a mounting bracket that will work on the HT bars.



Send me an email sandjoh@gmail.com with the year and model of your bike and I wll send some examples of mounting.

Recommendation required!

Hi, new to all this electrical stuff. I have a tiger 800 and want to run some DRL's during the day and full output at night. Can you advise which items I need, re dimmer and lights suitable for road use? Thanks in advance

The dimmer setup will work great. The light selection is up to you, however you can still get in on the Model 60 sale through tomorrow. Use the "m60sale" promotion code during checkout for $20 off per light. All of our leds use the same housing and mounting system. The model 44 is a fine light with a wide beam which the model 60 improves upon with more lumens. The model 30 is a spot beam, this is commonly used in combination with a wide beam to reduce the chance of blinding oncoming traffic or if you may have a limited amount of stator output available. In addition to the lights, you will need a mounting option and some wire and connectors or soldering is ok also. Please feel free to contact me sandjoh@gmail.com if have any other questions.

Look back a couple of pages for a fine example of an install on a tiger 800.
