I like the way you think no need for some fancy expensive parts

EnKcee, if you are "in KC" send me a message and I'd be glad to help. 20 years as a 12v electrical tech. I have all the connectors and relays ect. My full time job often gets in the way, but I can make time.

Wanted to share a few more photos of how these guys are mounted on my bike. I have altrider crash bars and used the bar mounts from the ADVMonster site. All of this stuff worked perfectly.

Thanks man, but enKcee is just a play on my initials (NKC), haha. If you ever make it to Fayetteville, AR, though, I'll buy you a beer just for the offer. It's nice to know there are good, kind people out there willing to help a perfect stranger.

There is a reason to be in the Fayetteville, AR area, if you haven't been to SLAP, check it out. Sweet riding in the Ozarks, a great facility, and better yet the folks are second to none

I've finally gotten to the point where I can hook the lights up on my sidecar. I need some help and direction



I have 2 spots and 2 fog lights mounted on the light bar. I'd like the fog lights to come on with the low beam and all 4 lights to come on with the high beam. I have the dimmer which I hope to use to turn the lights off or dim them when I don't need everything on.

is there a simple way to do this? where should I tap into the bike harness? Is the existing headlight relay sufficient or do I need a separate relay (or 2 relays?) for the auxiliary lights? I have replaced the OEM headlight bulb with an LED which draws about half what the original bulb did so I don't think the harness or relay will be overburdened.

I'd like to add some lights to my 350EXC, but I can't think of a good way to do it where they won't get ripped off the first time I hit some single track. Anyone have any experience?

Don't know if this will work for you or not. Other than the mirrors being removed, this is what my 690 looks like.

Does your 350EXC use DC for the headlight?

If it does, I can plug any of our 55mm diameter lights (Model 30, 44, 50 or 60) into a KTM style fairing/mask, with a dimmer you will have low and high beam using your oem switch. And it will be plug n play with your existing headlight connector.

I would wire the dimmer as the instructions show to your fog lights, and add a second lead pre-dimmer to the high beam switch to power the spots, probably don't need a relay for that. This should give you no lights with the key off, fogs at a dimmed setting with low beam, fogs on full and spots on with high beam.

Sounds awesome. The interweb has told my 350 is DC, so that's good. I am assuming the best bet would be a Model 60? I can't imagine a spot would give me enough side coverage. Do you think the M60 will give me enough throw?

For bikes with DC headlights

I ran the M60 on a 08 TE450 for a couple of years. Was never able to outrun the light and I giggled when I turned on the high beam Stupid amount of light

Not up on the web site yet. Have these in erng, white and black. Pricing will be under $200 including M60 light, mask, dimmer w pnp wiring. Shot me an email or pm if you are interested.



No dimmer shown

Pick either a wireless or rotary dimmer to have an adjustable low beam/full power high beam and plug n play with your oem wiring.
