I'm probably 4 - 6 months out from buying a used 950, and this is going to be first farkle, without question.

F11 Fog Lights

Hi,

I have a couple of questions about the Fog lights?

- When will they be available again?
- How long are the leads?
- can you wire both lights of a single (switched) fuse?
- 3A Fuse okay?

Thanks,
- Tobias

Sanjoh, there are many of us out here running older 6 volt bikes.
How about a flood or spotlight for us? These old electrical systems won't support additional standard incandescent bulbs.
An LED flood light would be a godsend.

Available now (will update web page)

Lead is one meter.

Can be wired together, 3a fuse is fine for a pair.

Are these older bikes DC 6v?

Yes sir, I ride a '77 Honda Trail 90, 6 volts DC.
A friend has a 74 Honda ST-90, also 6 DC.
He also has an old BSA that is also 6 volts. Don't know if
the lights on that one run DC or AC.
Years ago, I had three of the old BMWs from the 50s and 60s.
They were also 6 DC. I would have killed for good lights
on those bikes. I'm sure all the collectors of those old machines
would love to have bright LED lights that draw low current.

Since the LEDs themselves only run off of 3 volts or so, making
a set for 6 volt systems shouldn't be a big problem, right?
(Just guessing. You'd know better than me.)

I was just about to ask the same question, but decided to just do before asking. I used these lights all the way to Argentina and back on a DR650, and have a spare Model 30 and Model 40 lying around.

I bought a 1974 Suzuki TC100 just yesterday and it appeared that the headlight was burnt (or so I thought). Have to have a headlight to be legal, so I tested the Model 30 on a 6v battery charger (it worked) and wired it up to my bike via the battery and a switch. BAM! Success! Legal!

WAY better lighting and WAY more of it. Saweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet! The light is off in the photo, but trust me, it's like night and day when compared to the stock 6v bulb regardless of high beam or not. Just rode it tonight side by side with a 2005 Yamaha Zuma, and there is no comparison.

Slap a couple of these badasses on your bike and never look back. I've got mine mounted to the stock headlight mounting bolt on my TC100.







As I got down the road, my headlight started working as the voltage/battery got up to speed. However, I've got a ADVmonster LED light on there and it's STAYING.

Still waiting for delivery here in Canoodia. I'll report back when it's installed on the S10!

BigAl, just to make sure I understand you.....
Are you saying that the 12 volt model 30 and 40 worked on 6 volts??
