What's the lumen rating for the MM10's?


Would still like to know.



Well, given the CREE XM/L LED lamp, the CREE website says 1000 lm.

We will no longer offer the "lights only" option.

I'd wish that you'd reconsitter this as I and others that don't need (or want) the switch may not want to give you the extra $$$ for something that we'd never use. The way I see it is that a lot of your potential customers that are trying to figure out where to spent what little extra $$$ they have, don't want to be wasting it on some additional part(s) that have been grouped together into a kit. Those customers will just go elsewhere (which is what I will do if you decide to keep these as a kit only).

IMHO vendors should be giving potential customers more choices. Allowing us to pick and pay for only the parts that we want. In short, how hard is it on you or your staff to include or to not include the switch on an order by order base? Is it so difficult that you don't care if you loose some potential customers and their $$$?
[/quote]

Unfortunately for most (if not every vendor) its just not practical in terms of cost to meet every individuals needs/wants. We do the best we can to keep prices low and stay in business. There are other options on the market, perhaps another will suit your needs/budget better.

Yes there are other options on the market and yes another will suit my needs better because I don't want to pay an extra $30+ for a switch I don't want or need. I'd rather use that extra money for other things. Sure some people have plenty of extra $$$ and have no problem wasting it when not truly needed. I'm just not one of those people.

I do wish the best for your company.

And some of us need the switch, and appreciate having a complete bundle that we don't need to get anything else...

Just a heads up that beginning May 6th, we will be reducing the price of the MM10 light kits to $126 USD.

We are doing this in an effort to get these lights kit out into the hands of riders everywhere.

With riding season coming into full swing in much of the Northern hemisphere, riding safe is of the utmost importance. Being seen, can help.

The new price does not include the 5% discount (COG5), making the final price = $119.70 USD (before shipping).

As a way of saying thanks to our fantastic past customers, we have a small quantity of T-shirts available that we will be giving away to the first 2 COG members that call "dibs".

To qualify for the free shirt, you must have purchased an MM10 light kit from us between Mar 1 - May 1.



Available in M/L/XL

To get your free shirt:

1.You must have purchased an MM10 light kit from us between Mar 1 - May 1, 2013.

2.Be one of the first 2 members to call "dibs" here in the thread.

3.Once we acknowledge you are one of the first two, follow up by sending an email to us @ info@mondomotos.com with the subject "Free T" include your:

 - Name/Address
 - Email address used to place order
 - Order Number
 - Size (M/L/XL)

Free shipping within the 48 states - If you are outside the U.S. there will be a small (actual) charge for postage (sorry, shipping outside the US is expensive).

Again, thanks to all our customers past and present.

The new price will become effective May 6th, 2013

Update as of July 1 we have adjusted our price to $135 for the kit. With the COG5 discount (at checkout) the price is reduced to $128.25.  Sorry for the delay in posting this update. I was on the road all of July and into August.

Figures... ordered mine on Feb 1, 2013.  Usually I'm late for the party.  Nice lights though.

These look very well made!  Can they be mounted to the fork area on a C10?  Will the bracket it comes with, allow that? 

Thanks.

Sorry for the delayed response I have been traveling for the past month.

To answer your question, yes the supplied bracket will allow you to mount on the forks of the C10.

On another note - I just finished up on the CDR and should be back home/shop soon. Sorry for any delays in replying to emails and or phone calls.

Thanks for for bearing with me over the past month  - gotta ride  :)

Hey Brian,

I finally got around to hooking these lights up yesterday.  I was wondering how the brackets install on my C10 forks?  I could not find a threaded spot on the forks other than the caliper bolts.  Please advise.

Thanks, Dan

Have you any photographs of your kit installed on a C14?
I'm all for more lighting and being more conspicuous - but want to see the finished product prior to purchasing.
Hi so they bolt on in place of the fork reflectors? Correct? Also when the looms are "plug & play" i understand that they plug directly into existing connections? I would have them light up when the headlights come on.

Here are a few pics (thanks to the donor)




Thanks,

That's exactly how I mounted mine. Nice product and a good price. Really easy to install. Actually the wiring harness was too long for me as i have a Fuzeblock under the left top (black) faring under the handlebars and had to wrap up the excess with a zip tie.

New and Improved Light Kit
« Reply #40 on: December 05, 2013, 12:19:08 am »
Greetings once again COG members

2013 is coming to an end and we have been busy the past couple of months getting ready for 2014

Based on feedback over the past year, we have made a few refinements/improvements to the MM10 light kits:

-   Standard surface mount switch includes a custom transparent rubber boot (weatherproof)
-   Mounting brackets are now Black
-   Leads on lights have been extended 1.5”
-   Second UV treatment added to lights

These changes and a New Year will mean a slight price increase.

BUT - We are taking pre-orders for the "Version 2" light kit at the current price of $135 and expect to be ready to ship by 12/12 (will arrive CONUS by xmas)

The COG5 discount makes the final price  $128.25 (plus shipping).

Pre-Orders can be placed via the super secret link at the end of this post


Lights now have Longer Leads and Black Mounting Brackets


Included Surface Mount Switch now has a Watertight Transparent Boot


The New Version 2 Kit


Kit shown here with Optional Handlebar Mount Switch


Optional Handlebar Mount Switch (requires round 7/8" handlebar)

Is it possible to retrofit the existing switch with the rubber boot?

In short, No (not without cutting and mending the wires).

After the first of the year we will offer the weatherproof switch as a separate plug-n-play item.

In an odd coincidence it expired on 12/6 (day before).

My apologies.

It has been re-up'd and back in force.

The New Year has brought some changes @ MondoMotos

Now the important part -

This all means a price reduction on our MM10 light kits.


The standard MM10 Light Kit price has been reduced to $129 USD
Minus the NEW COG10 10% discount and the final price is $116.10 USD

The MM10 Light Kit has been improved/revised with a new Weatherproof switch (standard), Black Mounting Hardware as well a longer leads on the Lights.


Ride Safe,

Most mount the lights low on the forks this works well for the desired "Triangle" pattern.

Look thru the thread and you can see a few pics of where other have mounted the lights using the included hardware..

Example
Here are a few pics (thanks to the donor)

No optional hardware is needed.

Most find that the included brackets are all that are required.

If you scroll thru this thread you will see a few examples from Connie owners.
