Thanks for taking the time to post up your thoughts and pics.

Good news bad news

Anyone else get water inside one of the mm10 lights? I rode for an hour and a half in the rain. After I was home and looking at the bike, I noticed water inside the lens of one of my mm10 lights. I ended up opening it up to let the water out. the good news: yes, with 1/3 of water inside, the light still works! the bad news is the lens has a very thin outside rim. On this one light the rim looked cracked and came apart that let the water inside. So Brian can I get a new lens for my mm10? Thanks Richard

I've ridden in the rain a fair amount, no water in the lights. Wonder if you have a defective seal?

I've got a question: my lights are bronzing, and I want to repaint them before the weather turns. I've never painted over powder coating, so do I need to sand first? Prime? I'm planning on using a high temp Krylon.

I am not good at this thing, but I saw many other provider mentioned about their lights' "lumens" or "Lux"
May you have it somewhere which I may have better comparison with others?

Sorry for the late reply. I was on the road/trail for the past few days with no internet.

Good news/Bad news - If you got rain in there it is the result of a bad seal (which is very uncommon) - this is an issue if the front of the light is removed (4 screws) as the rubber seal can get misaligned - That is why removing the front of the light voids the warranty. Best thing to do is send Kris an email - info@mondomotos.com and let her know you are having a problem, include your order number and she can look into getting it resolved.

Painting the lights wouldnt require any sanding - just be sure they are clean. I would recommend using some rubbing alcohol to wipe them down and they let them air dry before spraying - obviously taping up the lens is a good idea.

They do get a little hot so high temp paint is a good idea

Thanks,
-Brian

I try to avoid the "lumens game" (as many, many overstate this greatly) and there is not a practical real world way of proving or disproving claims. I prefer to compare them to Halogen units instead as most people are familar with the output of say a 55w bulb or a 100w bulb. But if it helps they MM10's fit somewhere in the 900 - 1000 lumens range.


Thanks,
-Brian

Agreed.
There are several types and brands of LED light for motorcycle.
Let's take ClearWater as a reference.
Would you please make a comparison btw one of your LED with the Clearwater product, i.e. Erica?

I still have NO NEW LENs as of yet! Not looking so good. All I did was rode in the rain.

Well I finally rode in the dark with these lights and they are honking bright. I little more scatter than I prefer, but still very bright.

My only question is are there lenses that are more spot light than flood light?

Happy with the lights so far.

Yes very good light, So in the day time cars can see you coming!
My complaint is one of my lights has a cracked lens under the seal ring. So this will let water in. Did not know until water came in. This was a new light with only one trip in the rain. Good luck with yours.

Dissapointed by fading.

I ordered my MM10s at the beginning of March and I have to say I am a little dissapointed with the way they have worn cosmetically.

In less than 6 months, the black lights, which looked great on my bike, have faded to a copper color, which stand out like a sore thumb on my bike.

I emailed Mondomotos and was advised that "cosmetic issues are not covered by any warranty, however I can recommend spray painting the light."

To be honest, I'm pretty unhappy with this response, and I am beginning to wish I'd gone with another provider.

Hum, very alarming! I just bought them about two months ago and installed them on my beautiful S1000RR. They look great now! When they fade to a copper color that will be really bad.

Mondomotos -- would you please help to rectify this issue?
