Your suggestion fixed the problem. The 12V supply I was using, did not carry quite enough amps to activate the relay. Connecting it to the battery did the trick. However, as you said, that was a temp fix to see what the issue was. When I get home, I'll need to find a good switched power source to make it work properly. Thanks again

Thanks for the update.

Let me know what bike you have, I can probably direct you to a good switched power point.

I have a BMW S1000RR and currently using the PIAA 1100X Xtreme mounted to the same fender bolt location. Both the PIAA bulbs just went out again for the 2nd time in 2 years! I'm tired of buying new bulbs at $30 each! Do you have the "universal" hardware kit mentioned in your post yet?

Also, is the MM10 smaller or larger than the PIAA 1100X Xtreme http://www.piaalights.com/details.ph...XTREME%20WHITE

Thanks!

Most likely there is a 6M screw in that location and a standoff/washers/longer bolt would needed to bolt right up.

FWIW - we are modifying our hardware kit to make it "universal" - meaning it will work to mount the MM10's in this location on many bikes.


thanks,

I'm attempting to purchase the MM10 with the 800XC mounting hardware, but you're out of stock. When do you expect to have availability?

Thanks.

Just ordered another set to put on my new to me ST1300.

First pair on my Tiger are still awesome.

Vibration's are no friend to Halogen bulbs thats for sure.

We should have the mounting kits together in a couple days.

Thanks,

Kits are being put together this week. It will allow mounting on the 800 either up high, or down low on the forks.


Thanks,

Thanks for the repeat business

Like to see some pics once you get them mounted on the ST.

The universal hardware kits are now ready to go.

Bear in mind - the hardware kit is NOT required to mount the MM10 lights. It does provide components that help in mounting them. Particularly useful for mounting the lights low on the forks (replaces OEM reflectors, fender bolts, etc). It also includes the needed bits to mount the lights alongside the headlight on the Tiger 800.


Thanks,
-Brian

My S1000RR uses M5x14 fillsiter head screws in the lower fender where I would like to mount these lights. So I probably won't need the "Universal hardware kit"? So will the MM10K2 kit be all I need to order?

Thanks!

M5? Good to know.

It is hard for me to say without having the bike in the shop, I believe the screws are countersunk - that may require either a slightly longer screw/bolt and/or spacer to run through the lights mounting bracket. However it may not. In either case, once you have the lights in your hand you can determine if either is needed. A decent hardware store (bog box) should have it.


Thanks,
-Brian

I just placed an order on a MM10 kit without the universal hardware kit.
Thanks!
