Re: Updated Light Kit, Lower Price & Bigger Discount

Greetings All -

Hope everyone is having a great new year so far

Thanks to everyone who picked up one of MM10 Light Kits in 2013

The New Year has brought some changes @ MondoMotos

- New products
- A New DIY section (components for a DIY install)
- A New option on our MM10 light kit that eliminates the switch and allows the lights to turn on/off with your bikes ignition.


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,
-Brian



Thanks for offering the new product and discount Brian. Where is the manufacturers recommended place to mount these?


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)




-Brian


Thanks Brian, I don't have stock forks nor those front reflector brackets so that's why I asked because I don't think I can mount them there... Are there any other options you'd recommend for mounting? I'm interested in them but am trying to understand the mounting options, do you offer any mounting options off the mirror bases (with the lights hanging below the mirrors)?
???

Here's my front setup below, thanks in advance for your thoughts on this.  :beerchug:

I would look at mounting them where you see the arrows



With longer screws (most bikes use M6 bolts on the front fender) and a spacer you would be all set. 

Something similar to our hardware kit on for the Versys would most likely do the trick.

.

If you would like to see if the hardware kit for the Versys will work add it to your order, if it doesnt do the trick then you can return it.

Hope that helps,
-Brian

With longer screws (most bikes use M6 bolts on the front fender) and a spacer you would be all set. 

Brian, my intent was to mount them on my bike where you forward arrow is (front fender bolt).  Do I need a special mounting kit or will a trip to Lowe's work?  I'm mostly worried about the spacer and making one that works correctly and holds in place over the longer haul.  I don't want to have to go out and adjust them every week...

Not necessarily, the front always dips further down than the rear coming into a turn...  ???

Our hardware kits are basic stuff..

Nylon Spacer(s)
Longer Stainless M6 Screws w/Threadlock applied
Stainless Flat Washer and Locking Washer

Locking washer keeps everything upright and in place, threadlock keeps the bolt from backing out.

I have the same lights, hardware kit on all of our bikes.

All the bikes see rough gravel roads and the DRZ has seen many miles of trials and havent lost a light yet.

If you have a decent hardware store in your area you can most likely get the needed pieces to replicate the hardware kit we sell.  Just be sure to use threadlock as well as a locking washer.

thanks,
-Brian

I have my MM10's mounted on the front fender mounting bolt. All u need is a small spacer. Approximately 3/8" deep and the bolts that come with the lights will mount it. Works perfect. Does NOT hit the pavement when leaning hard over in a turn. I was concerned about vibration eventually breaking off the reflector bracket.

I just received my lights here at work. I printed out the instructions and hopefully I will have time to get them installed this weekend.

Thanks for the quick delivery Brian.  :great:

Where did you decide to mount the lights and the switch, just wondering?  Mine are due today or tomorrow as well but I don't think I'll have time to play with them this weekend.  I was thinking of front fender mount with direct wire to lights....

Not quite sure yet, I am going to play around with some different mounting options and and go with the best look and functionality. I have been thinking about putting them on my Canyon Cages.

I will post pics when I am finished.

I know its been extra cold across most the country but wondering if anyone got their lights mounted up? If so, please take a few minutes to share your thoughts and/or pics.

I've been lazy. I will try to get them installed by next week.

I have the ZX10 front fender that gives me two different holes to mount the lights. I think I am going to go with the bottom hole. What do you guys think?
