I ordered yesterday and received the lights today, from FL to MO, wow!

I stupidly forgot to order the crash bar brackets though, (should have asked first) so I have to wait for them to arrive to actually install the lights. And I have to figure out where/how to install the switch. Once all that is done, I plan on heading out in the middle of nowhere one night to see how it all looks. But there's plenty of middle of nowhere around here...

It's been a while since I stopped in here. I finally got the electrical sorted out and these installed permanently. Even made a snazzy custom bracket for the 60. Surprisingly, the DR650 stock stator keeps up with all 3 at an idle. Even with an upgraded 80/100 high beam.

Got my lights on Friday and got the installed on the weekend. Ordered a pair of model 60's and a pair of model 30's.

Installed on my FJR that will be used for iron butt and rally riding. Here's the install in progress.



Both lights are wired into the remote control unit from ADVmonster. On the FJR the stock lights don't come on until the engine is started, so I used another relay to power up the lights when the headlights come on. Then hooked up the highbeam trigger to the highbeam and horn :).

Here's the aux lights at about 20%. Of course, a direct shot makes everything seem so much brighter.




I've since done a few night rides and have them adjusted to my liking now. The model 30 spots on the bottom are aimed in so they cross about 100 meters in front of the bike. The model 60's are aimed out just a tiny bit to illuminate the sides of the roads more and incinerate forest rats. The Model 60's are intense. The model 30's, while only 1500 lumens, do a great job with the spot pattern and fill that gap straight ahead between the model 60's.

On my Hayabusa, I have a set of the quad cree 3k+ lumen LEDS from 24x7diy, and I have to say the ADVmonster lights are enough brighter that they are worth the extra $30 for a set. Also, shipping time from ADVmonster was way faster.

Once I add a switch to the system to power down the AUX lights completely I will post up some comparison shots. So far, I am very pleased with this setup.

P.S. Sanjoh - I sent an email about some extra brackets. Let me know if you got it.

I found in my Dr a set unused plugs that power on with the key. Same deal as most here as far as setup. Used those wire to switch the relay, then wire right off the batt for led power.

So, after my install above, I did something stupid the next day and dropped the bike on the side. Lands right on the light brackets of course. The lights did OK, the ADVmonster brackets got all bent up.

I email Sanjoh and ask if they can send just two brackets to replace the ones I have and how much it will cost. Next morning, he emails me back and asks how many I need. I reply and confirm I needed two. Next thing I know, I get a notification from their shipping system that they have sent a package to me :)

So, just wanted to say thank you publicly and let folks know about this instance of great customer service. Thanks again!

Light Install

So I installed my ADVMonster lights this past week. I mounted them on the headlight bucket bolts on my Scrambler and am quite happy with it.

Install was 2 30s hooked to a dimmer switch. I especially love the "full bright" on High Beam option.

So far so good - nice and bright. I can now ride my bike at night and not be scared to death of hitting something 3 meters in front of me.

Here are a few pictures...

First Try-Wiring Q

Ohh, Boy, Here I go into the deep end with some questionable creatures....

Need a bit of help....wiring is not my strength! Here's where I'm at-

1988 R100RT
MM10 aux lights
Skene Controller

Switch Power....for both....Tried off the headlight white wire (which has an Eastern Beaver Relay on it) -it works the lights and all, but I can't get the high beam to activate the MM10's. It's working on low beam and Jerry Skene suggested pulling power off the parking light, but the bulb is burnt and I can't get it to work that way when I tried tapping it....my voltmeter isn't for 12V systems.....garrhhhhh....stupid. Stupid! STUPID!!!!

Where else would you recommend? Should I separate the two switch power wires?

Could I be any more vague? Is there a doctor in the house? Moderator?!!
Calgon!??

I bow to your Seasoning.
I will peruse and attempt to rectify.

Many thanks!

Oh, wait, did I mention that when I look at wiring diagrams, my brains leak out my ears? They're in Swedish, right?

Unfortunately my seasoning makes me older rather than wiser, but i have installed a bunch of driving lights, and coaxing electrons to go where they dont want to has paid my bills over the last 30 years. I dont know anything specific about beemers but if you want to pm me any questions i can try to help you out. The bmw forum might be an even better resource than me or this vendor's one.

I want to order a replacement headlight style "drop-in" LED light for my '13 KTM 350EXC, but I only see it for the older KTM's on your web site. I thought you had the same for the newer bikes? Please let me know so I can get it on order.

Thanks

Nice to talk with you earlier. We are redesigning the headlight replacement for later model KTMs, expected to be available mid August.

After riding through the back roads of New Hampshire at night, and expecting to do a little more night riding this season, I decided to upgrade the lighting on my Vstrom. Just ordered two model 44's, the dimmer switch, a couple of crash bar mounts, and a couple of waterproof connectors. Can't wait to get 'em all wired up.

You should stock and sell relays on your website as well... save me a trip to the parts store!
