Looks awesome!
You could put a HID 35W in the 4" for an even lower drain on the charging sys!

Is the free dimmer with hi beam circuit noted on your website? I'm ready to order but did not see this deal on the site.

PM sent. We are offering plug n play wiring when lights are purchased with a dimmer (high beam bypass models) at no extra cost.

The drop in light replacements include an adjustable low beam with a high beam bypass.

Wow 500,000+ views YFFs are amazing.

Do you have a spare light laying around? How about making an awesome brake light

Introducing our prismatic red lens cover. Lens cover will fit on any of our LED lights.





Mounted under the top rack


Tail light only




With 24 watt led light

Michigan,

Sure would like to see how your mounting ended up on the X2. I am thinking along the same lines, however haven't sprung for the goods yet. Any help would be greatly appreciated .

[QUOTE=michigan400;19629966]Got my M30 in quick! Thanks guys. Not a bad little light but I think I'll add either another 30 for a pair or just get a 60 to run as a single unit. The model is bright but not bright enough, IMO, to run as a stand alone headlight. Decent distance just to narrow and to blue colored to be good by it's lonesome. BUT,, for only 60 clams it's a hell of a light!

Also, since I can't leave well enough alone I did some experimenting last night. I first mounted it to my hand guard for a quick test. I had my Trail Tech X2 halogen mounted up for my main light. The X2 is OK in stock form but gets a lot better when you switch out the bulbs for something with a little more juice. I put a 55W H3 Narva rangepower +50 in the main light and a 50W MR16 spot for the top light (both are 35W as it comes from TT ). Problem with this is the 105W total draw. I only have a 100W stator so running high beam (both lights) is a no-no. I have it set up to run the 2" MR16 as the low beam and the 55W 4" light as the high beam and the Model 30 has it's own switch so I can add it to either.

You probably get tired of reading this but are we any closer to seeing a new light with model 60 power and model 30 "optics"?

All you need to do is take off the MR16 light and flange from the X2, lightly grind the raised plastic portions that the screws go into so they match the light body diameter. The screws will still go back in just fine if your careful. Then just sandwich the plastic shell between the main body and the finned heat sink of the light and your there. I still have to get a little airflow back there and either add a couple big metal washers or just use the supplied mount brackets with the tabs cut off. I'd also add a drop of green loctite to the back once you mounted it to keep the heat sink from unscrewing and your light dropping off the front. I have the model 30 spot but I think that setup would work much better with a 44 or 60 since aiming it is almost impossible. You have to angle the entire headlight shell to do it. I'll try and get some better pics showing that this weekend. I'm hoping it the rain lets up so I can get a couple night shots as well. I have some GoPro vid now but it doesn't show much. I can't get it to take good vid at night.

Sanjoh,
Is there anyway to order a new lens protecter without paying $10 for shipping? I just need 1.

X2 mod

would love to see the pic's. Sounds very simple!

Did you do anything to protct the lens in front?

What kind of heat is genrerated, have you run it for any length of time?

Great lights at a great price, wish i'd done the ADV discount though


Sanjoh, there is an issue with the spacer as mentioned above, when you use it with the HD mounts you have to grind the some to fit, no big deal but slightly annoying when you want to rush righ out and install them

Damn I love these lights. Thanks John!

Low beam HID only.

ADVMonster Model 44s LED high beams only.

Oncoming view all 5 lights. The tiny ones are cheap ass eBay that don't throw any light to speak of.
