Cool2 This mod rocks!

Finally managed a test ride last night.

The "Plus 50s" definitely throw out enough extra light to be worth while.

Adding low beam to high is great. When you dip your lights your eyes don't have to adjust to a different patch of light thrown on the road; you just lose some of the distance illumination (which is not where you are looking if you are forced to dip your lights by oncoming traffic) to the point that a couple of times I had to check that I'd dipped my lights.

However, no amount of forward lighting shines around corners so you still have to slow down more for the tight stuff or use moonlight to pick out the road ahead of your lights...

Thumb Cheers

Cheers, I wired the lights on the weekend. AUD$20 and about one hour of my time.

Thanks

another way?

My winter electrical project is still a work in progress, but here's what I've found so far on my 02 640 adv:

Ran 12g wire x2 (+/-) from battery to front of bike, with pos. with 30amp fuse near battery and 40amp relay bolted into tubular frame hole on either side of headlights. Relay is powered by one of the unused molex style connectors facing forward of the headlights; these come on with the ignition. When I take the rear rubber cap off the low beam and disconnect the stock pos. lead, it reads about 0.5V less than a 12g. wire coming off my new relay (with a fuse block between). That is, e.g. 12.4V vs 12.9V. I was expecting worse, as that molex style connector is putting out about 11V.

In any case, I made good use of our nanny and brought her out in the garage to decide which lighting she liked better. The 12g wire with the additional 0.5V made for much better lighting. In addition, when you go to highbeam, the lowbeam does not turn off (i.e. they both stay on). I'm planning on replacing the stock wiring to both high and low beam with this new wiring setup. For the highbeam, I'll use it's pos. lead to trigger an additional relay; that way I'll be able to make use of the stock highbeam switch.

In short, I wouldn't have thought 0.5V would make a bit of difference, but it does.

Is it possible that somebody posts an actual picture of the things that need to be done for the lights to be on together. Is it necessary to get a relay to do this?
Thank you, electrics is not my thing.

Anyone have a aftermarket supplier of the bomb squad gear? I don't want to pay KTM prices for that!

I wonder what that stuff would do if the bomb exploded? I don't expect you'd be getting up and walking away, and if you did survive it you'd probably wish you were dead anyway!?

I don't really know, but ballistic Kevlar is supposedly bad ass shit, so if it is designed properly not much should get through it.

First of all,
thank you Plava Kućo! You are the man!!
Hvala ti i za sve drugo! Razgovarao sam s jednim tapetarom i kaže da bi mi mogao malo podići Renazco sic koji ti imaš, pa kad skupim lovu javim se, kaže da bi me to koštalo cca 200kn.

Ballistic kevlar....helps, but this close, he might as well be naked dancing a funky chicken.

Check Plava Kuca's garage sale, the man has loads of goodies.

As electrics are not my thing, I need a little help with wiring both headlights together....I own a 2001 Adv. model and even though I have seen the diagram I cant figure out what I need to do, so please help....step by step....
Here's the pic of how It looks on my bike.....



I don't plan on including a fuse, I have info it is going to work without it as I don't use heated grips or heated west's...

Thank you!

Heba ga patak....

1. utikač na fotki desno
2. poanta je struju sa smeđe-zelene žice, gornji red 2. (srednja) žica
spojiti na žutu, donji red 1. (lijeva) žica

znači npr. odrežeš žutu malo dalje od utikača, dio te žute koji je ostao na utikaču spojiš nekako na smeđe zelenu žicu, (stopicom ili skineš izolaciju na smeđe zelenoj pa pričvrstiš žutu, ostatak žute u glavnom kablu izoliraš i zaboraviš.
