For those using the MM10's (or equivalent)

Does the optional rocker switch fit on the first gen. Connie handlebars?

Is is a 10 degree or 25 degree beam pattern, or a blend?

What are the filters for?  How are people applying them?

TIA.

Hawk,
I have the MM10's on My C14. They are a great light. Get the new switch that comes in a silicone boot to keep out the water. It mounts using 3M sticky tape and will not come loose. The lights are more towards a flood pattern than a narrow beam. I haven't seen the filters personally.

Hawk,

Fixing to install mine with the help from Airmonger/Kent this Wednesday and I'll let you know how it goes. Matt was the first to recommend and I have no doubt they will live up to my expectations. Good luck and safe driving.

Ok guys, here are the MM10's on Juanita. Very happy owner right here and anxious to see how much light they put out when its pitch dark. A special thanks to Airmonger/Kent for the install and guidance. I hope you guys like, let me know what you think.

Mo,


Those look great on your MCE tip-over bars! I bought the same set, but am really interested in the mounts you used.


Part number/supplier please?

Sorry for the delay Ed but here it goes. Go to http://mondomotos.com website. Upper right corner click on tab which will pull up light accessories. The kit retails for $36.50 and fits any bar from .875 to 1.125. Hope this helps and be sure to post your pics.

Installed my lights two nights ago and thought I'd include some pics.

I pre-ordered about a month ago, so lights took a while to arrive.  Kyle at MondoMoto did send a couple emails updating me on the progress of my order, and then sent them two-day USPS. 

The kit I ordered included the waterproof switch and had brackets for mounting to a flat surface.

Kit comes ready to hook to a battery, but I used the fuse block from Murph - (the last spot!)

I put the relay behind the battery and the wires were long enough that I ran them down below the j-box, up to the seat-pan catch, along the center bar of the frame, then up along the left side.  The split in the wires ended up by the left side of the bike. The ends were long enough to easily run one wire to the right hand light.

Mounted the lights to my first edition tip-over bars.  The wires were plenty long enough to run up the main harness.  I ended up placing the switch in my glove box as I don't intend to turn them off too often. 

Added another pic of my Admore lights....It's like Close Encounters now!

Thanks Mo...I feel a new false-sense of security.  Then again, maybe they do work.  Had a guy inch my way today from the next lane, then he caught a glimpse of me (or my new lights) and edged back.  I'm going to argue it was because of the lights.    ;D

Nice lights Hawkdriver! I'm thinking of getting these lights but I don't have the tip bar like yours does. Also what year is your bike? I have a '00 Connie  in the same red color, almost like twins. :)

Where you at also? I would love to see these in person to give me an idea of where to mount and also see how they perform.  :great:

Roberto - I'm in vic. of Tacoma.  It's on '03....picked it up with 1200 miles on it 6 mos after a guy bought it new.  Said his Harley buddies wouldn't let him ride with him. :))  His loss...my gain...man I love this bike.  Can't imagine owning another.  My problem is I hate taking her off the road for routine maintenance.  Anyways...I digress.

Wow, that's great. My folks are in Lakewood so I would love to check your ride out. Maybe some weekend if you have time if you're out on the road or in the area.  :beerchug:

Hawk,

It's funny you say that because I've had a few similar experiences since putting the lights on. When ever I drive up behind anyone and see the my reflection, its pretty cool how the white lights stand out compared to the headlight. Glad I went with Matts recommendation and 100% satisfied.
