as you know, airflow is somewhat of a personal thing depending on torso height, helmet (dirt, adv, or street), personal tolerance/expectation, etc. do you have a dummy fairing or a prototype that you'd be willing to demo before we shell out the money for a production set-up? i'd be happy to pay shipping both ways and provide feedback to you guys.

thanks,

Two points on the turbulence concern -

1. You have read on this forum others who note that they have experienced no such turbulence - So you have low risk
2. I have a money back policy on our products - If you don't like it for any reason, return it for a full refund. We do ask that it is in an undamaged, unmodified condition. Unless of course, it was somehow faulty,

So, try it. I think you will be suprised how well it works. But if not, ok, just return it.

OK?

Jim

Another happy customer email

"Just thought I would let you know that I received my lights today that I had ordered from you on July 2, 2012. Boy, 9 days delivery time from Florida to BC, Canada including going through Canada Customs. Thatís impressive.
This is the second set of these lights Iíve ordered from you in the last year and Iím also impressed with how they work.

Iíll be recommending your product & service very highly to any other of my Canadian friends that have interest in led lights.

THANKS !"

Just mounted a model 30 and 60 to the 640. they are very bright .

I think they'll work monted here, they seem pretty secure

though the 640 has a tendency to shake shit loose.

Just received a pair of 60s today and first impression is just wow.

I recently installed HID headlights on my C14. Made a big difference. Lots of light and at 4300 very white. Problem is that the high beam leaves a large dim area where the low beams are.

I ordered the 60s and a pair from the other well known vendor here on adv. Both came today so I could compare side by side.

I first plugged in the 60s. Very nice. Lots of light and they filled in the dim area like daylight. Very comparable light temperature to my HID but bluer, I believe they are 5000? But tons of light.

I then hooked up the other vendors lights and they did not add to the light thrown nor did they fill the dim spot. To be fair, my HID are very bright so these lights might be good in another application.

I decided to keep the other set and mount them low, near the calipers, as DRL. They add a little to the light right in front of the bike and are wired to be on with the low beam.

The 60s are mounted under the mirrors and are aimed to fill in the dim area when high beams are on.

I am happy with both purchases, as they are each filling a need. The 60s win, hands down, in the throwing light down the road department. So if you have bright headlights and need some more, I can say the 60s definitely add.

Here are some pics, but this is a hard photo to take, especially with a phone.

No lights


Low beams plus other vendors lights

Nice pics for a cell phone

Can you post one up of all the lights mounted?

Color Temp is 5500k.

Thanks

Want the baddest headlamp in camp your friends will curse you when they see the light

The M1 Bike/Head light is on sale. Normally $130, sale price $90.


Includes battery, charger, mount, and light with your choice of bike or head mount. We also have a wiring harness that allows you to hard wire to a 12v source.

Thanks for the pics and review.

The other vendors lights seem quite expensive as a DRL. I've had calls from several ADVriders asking about my lights as they were disappointed with the other vendors lights. One gent from down under was quite upset after a prolonged discussion with the vendor, but the vendor finally took the lights back. He ordered a few sets of the model 60s for his rally bikes and is happy with the performance.

For less money you could have a pair of model 30s that will add even more light

Try a ferrite ring, wrap the wires going to the light around it. Should be able to find one at Radio Shack.

I've been thinking of picking up a set of the model 60s to mount on a light bar on my V-Strom, along with a dimmer with high-beam bypass. One concern I have though is that since there's no cut-off, the lights will be blinding to oncoming traffic when it's dusk and darker out, even if they're dimmed down. If I dim them down to 10%, that might take care of it, but if they're that dim, I'm not sure I'll be throwing any real additional light onto the road. I did do an HID conversion, that works great. Has anyone run a setup like this and actually looked at the dimmed lights themselves when it's dark out?

Thus the reason they're not DOT approved . There really is no solution as the lights have no reflector to control the light pattern.

I've used each of the LED models as primary lights (ie no other headlight) in our Dual Sport fairing. They work just fine, produce an adquate amount of light for riding at night while not blinding oncoming traffic (unless you need to). So in your application they should work great.

A pair of 60s on the strom and you won't realize you have other lights
