Looking at your lamp specs:

  • 3x Cree LED XML U2
  • 2700 lumens
M 60:
  • 30 degree Beam
  • 3600 lumens
  • Cree XM-L U2 LEDs
  • 2.4 amps (28 watts) @12v

I am trying to visualize the difference in illumination between these two lamps. I am assuming the housings match and are the same size?

Perhaps your experience can shed some light on this? I'd like to have the basis for an informed decision for an imminent purchase.

Thanks

Yeah I was all excited about the model 50 until I saw the specs; 25 vs 30 deg does not, on paper, seem like it'll add much throw. Really like to see pics...

Rotary Switch

I know I saw a post in here......maybe from Sanjoh.....on putting a dab of something under the rotary piece to help keep it from turning on it's own. Does anyone remember what that "dab" was?

I don't think those bars are that big.
Believe the dimensions, the mounts will not work on the 5/8" tubing HT uses for some of their bars.

I've put some 3000 miles on my strom with these lights. They work great, a bit tighter beam than the model 30.

The lights survived 2000 miles in Brazil and Uruguay including some gravel roads. The wiring logic seems good etc but the switch feels very light, not sure if that implies poor quality.
Hi Dave, sent you an email on the dimmer a few days back. I would certainly like to understand what happened with your dimmer and need your reply.

M15 pics. This is a single light.





This is a great deal! Less than $70 usd for a quality set of lights with a 1 year warranty.

Housings are the same, aluminum, oring sealed openings.

The M60s still have the edge on distance. The M50 puts out more than our M44.

Pics should be up in a couple of days.

Your favorite grease or petroleum jelly under the rotary knob.

Thanks, so the 60's have the edge for distance as well as fill, for only $10 more. I missed my deadline to obtain and install new lamps for my impending ride, now I have plenty of time to wait for the pics to be posted.

John, here's my DRZ with the wind screen 'n lights. Works a charm so far. Haven't had her out after dark yet but she sure lights up the garage.


And with the added aluminum plate "shelf". Tabs on the shelf attach to the upper triple clamp bolts, then to the top of your provided braces. Lower Adel clamps wrap around the fork legs and to the bottom of the braces. Very stable mount.


The shelf has, so far, a volt meter and switch, and the heated grips control. Under the shelf is all the wiring for lights, grips, turn signals, horn, etc.

The 'puter is mounted to piece of aluminum plate screwed to the fiberglass. Front "arrow" LED turn signals are also mounted to the fiberglass, pretty much tucked in.

Thanks for this option, I think it all hangs together pretty good with the big Safari tank.

Nice set up George. Do those yellow cases go on the bike? I am very disappointed that there isn't a picture with one of your ST1100 in the background.
