Will mount them to the small CNC bars below my turn signals.

Took advantage of a great deal offered by Beemers and More of Ft. Collins, for a tech weekend. Had a great time, learned a lot, did my first Boxer valve adjust and here is a pic of the lights on. Not the best photo but you get the idea. Bright !!

I know that auto white balance on many cameras can leave a lot to be desired but do they look that blue in real life, I mean in contrast to the halogen low and high beams?

The MM12's color temp is close to that of an HID unit (5K - 6.5K range)

As seen here

There is a lot of color halo-ing in that picture, from a small P&S shooting into a dark garage. They are not so much blue as a very bright white. Not sure of the color temp but they are quite different from my hi/low beam, regular lights.

Versys Mounts

We are now offering mounts designed to fit the 2009-2010 Versys.
These mounts are designed to work specifically with the MM12 lights.
We have sold a few sets to people that inquired about the pictures on our website.
They are a simple, proven design that have held up well on Kris's Versys.
They are made of rustproof materials and include instructions $24 (free shipping with purchase of MM12aux lights).





They are not on the website yet but if anyone is interested you can email us: info@mondomotos.com

Yes, the hid in that picture is a 5k. And the aux lights are a little more blue. I would guess they are about 6k or so. NOT blue though....just a slight tinge.

Im glad you asked

Had them down low, but aluminum bracket was a bit flimsy and the vibrated a bit. Working on a stronger steel bracket, should prove to eliminate vibration at speed.





I have since moved them up higher and they are now mounted to my handguards. Very stable even on the worst of roads.




Thanks,
-Brian
