That is why I want to know the actual weight of the light and not the shipping weight.

Thanks,

I would not recommend mounting to the fairing, it will not last, the fairing will split/crack, ask me how I know this. The lights mount in a single bolt so the stresses will be concentrated.

If you added a few layers of fiberglass to the inside of the fairing after grinding off the paint it may work.

If you find the appropriate size tbolt clamp for your forks it will work great.

Got a pic of the bar mount setup? I'm unclear how it attaches to light itself etc... Is it painted or powder, alu, steel,...?
thx

Are the flat mounts able to be rotated back to be parallel with the bracket?

In other words, will the flat mounts allow the lights to be correctly positioned if the mount bolt is vertical and parallel to the bike? I am thinking about putting these lights on a set of hand guards.

Description:
Spot Beam 10watt / .85amp ~450 lumens total from 3 leds, 12v
Flood Beam 24 watt / 2amp ~1500 lumens total from 9leds (3 groups of 3), 12v
Aluminum housing
o-ring sealed
one meter leads
waterproof connectors -male and female
two mounting options - flat mount (stainless) or 7/8s bar mount(aluminum).
plastic lens
available in black or black



What's included:

Flood on right, Spot on left


Please excuse the big pics but you want to see what you are buying.

Cost+ship:
Pair Spot Beam - $90
Pair Spot/Flood - $105
Pair Flood Beam - $115

I will post up some better in use lighting pics after the weekend ride.
Hi, a quick question for you. Do these have the various modes of light intensity?
Thanks!

Hit the switch

Just to clarify there is no switch in the kit? Buyer works out his own switch optioins? I do like the on/off dimmer switch.

I don't think LEDs can work that way.. they are usually on or off.

Or can these LED actually handle variable voltage for variable output? (though I'm hard pressed to think of a reason you'd want less light )

Yeah these will work on a dimmer switch. Read the thread a bit and its confirmed. With lower light during daylight you can run them dim but still acting as look at me lights.
