Leo,

We installed a set on a K1300 a few months ago. Im 99% sure we mounted them to the fender (see arrow in pic)



Unfortunately I dont have any pics and not certain if spacers were needed to push the lights out? But it should be fairly straight forward.

We usually tap into the taillight wire for the switched power lead. To date there hasnt been any issues with the CANBUS - very low current draw.

Post up some pics once you get them mounted up - (since I didnt )

Give me a call or PM if you have any questions

-Brian

All is well that ends well - except getting home today during the near whiteout blizzard - Spring cant get here soon enough -

Sorry you missed us - I will set aside a light kit with your name on it for the sale price - PM me if you want it - we can meet at shop or I can ship to you no charge.

thanks-

I mounted mine in that same place on my F800ST....and I used a 3/4 long spacer with a longer bolt. Turned out very nice and was stupid easy.
As for canbus, I have one of those fancy touratech canbus relay blocks so I can't really comment.

Yah I should have figured that was it, it was the word "pending" that seemed strange to me. Wanted to make sure I didn't miss the sale

thanks

light kits

Brian, was at the show Saturday am, would have looked you up had I known you were going to be there. Any chance the show price is still available? Think I can sell two kits.

Thanks for the input.

This is by far the most popular mounting point. We extended the lead on the light for that reason (helps to keep the connectors under the hood on most bikes)

Creates a nice "triangle" effect for oncoming traffic and gets the most light on the ground. Sometimes it requires a spacer and longer 6MM bolt, sometimes not.

Thanks,
-Brian

Restructuring

Hope everyone is having a great new year so far -

This coming weekend we will be undergoing some website maintenance/updates -

- Adding new products
- Adding a DIY section (components for a DIY install)
- A new option on our MM10 light kit that eliminates the switch and allows the lights to turn on/off with your bikes ignition.

Now the important part -

This all means a permanent price reduction on our MM10 light kits.



Effective today the standard MM10 Light Kit price has been reduced to $129 USD
Minus the ADV10 discount and the final price is $116.10 USD

This is the same price we offered at the International Motorcycle Show and now its here to stay.


Thanks,
-Brian

thanks for the MM10's

I down in Costa Rica and installed a pair on my Honda Tornado XR250. A huge improvement in lighting. A great product and super easy install.

Kris and I spent a week on the Tornado's a few years back, explored quite a bit of CR (need to get back there)...

Great bikes



Many thanks for the feedback

Hi - I'm really interested in the MM8s for putting on a Tiger800, but the website says out of stock. Any idea when you will have some in?

Or should I just go with MM10s?

Cheers!
