Hi Andrew,
Rather than wait for Komy to ship to Thailand (where I'm living at the moment), I decided to fly to Hkg to collect myself (ok ok, I decided to make a business trip out of it as well). Komy has sent it off today, should arrive to my office tomorrow and I'll be back to try and get it fixed over the weekend.
However, my electrical knowledge ends with knowing how to insert batteries into remote controls. Are you going to wire up the set yourself or send it to a shop? If the former, can you also show me how? Can the front aux point (under the left fairing) be used (enough power etc?)

Cheers

Yes you can use the aux port but make sure to replace the fuse below the seat to a 15A. Current one plugged in is just 5A. Komy told me that 15A can handle both lights.

I did had thoughts of doing my own, planned to pull a separate wiring is per below, to free up the AUX port for something else in future.


but then again, other than riding the bike, I'm a retard in everything related to bike maintenance and electricals So as what I've always been doing, I'll pay some professionals to get it done. Dont wana risk burning my bike down, lol!

Just got mine from Komy. I ordered two sets, one is 160L and the other 300L. Planning to fix the 300L on my Versys and the 160 on my PCX if I can find a suitable place on it without having to drill the fairing.

Komy suggested 5A and 10A fuse respectively?

I received mine yesterday too. Pretty fast shipping, just 1 week. However i can't seem to say for sure if it's a 30watt or a 20watt light he sent since there is no marking indicating so. Have nothing to compare against. Hence i guess i had to take it on faith.


He told me earlier that a 10amp fuse is enough for a pair of 30watt light.
you'd better ask him again for confirmation.

If you look at His ebay posting, way below at the description, there's a pic of a scooter similar to the pcx with the lights mounted on the handlebar. Can do the same for the pcx too. He did include bar mount together just like in my pic above right?

Fastoman, i prefer led because of the white beam, and also more lumens per watt consumed, which the leds gave more.

Anyway u live in bandar puteri right? Just 40 minutes away from me in kapar, we could meet in town after i got it installed and we can compare

Your LED looks like the big ones (I ordered both 1600L and 3000L so I can compare both) so I think it should be correct.

For the V, I think I might try installing them on my crash guards if it's not too low. On the PCX, I don't think I can install on my handlebars as I have a cup holder ( ) on the left handlebar and my GPS on the right one.

loving this thread guys I ride a bit at night with heaps of nocturnal wild-life and will get some of these super duper LED's when I can afford them.
I will set them up to a slightly high cross over pattern that widen my light spread in corners and hopefully give a view into the corner. I'm thinking about 1 down the middle ahead and 2 crossing over each other ahead..

Have you really got a cup holder? As in a drink holder?

Chow, mounting on the engine guard seems easy choice, but trust me, if you ever lay your bike down, the lights are the first to go.

Ordered wat? The lights? I emailed komy direct since his ebay posting indicated a thousand usd for shipping, so instead of ebay, we deal direct. He sent me a payment request via paypal, i paid via paypal and he sent through hongkong post for another 13usd. Took it on faith since it seems he has done many before. Have yet to test the lights, pretty busy for another 2 weeks.

I guess he has since amended the shipping charge

Just installed and replaced my Daylight driving LEDs. This is a real spot light, LED, suspected rating at 25 Watts each.





It is brighter than the headlamp. Currently untested in the night. Will up a pic when I get a chance to shoot in the night.

Initial installation was a failure, with the LED showing a dim output...worse off than a daylight driving light. I thought I was conned by the seller. Also, too dumb to not test it directly connected to the battery to check its actual brightness before installing to the bike.

Revisited the installation and tested the spotlight with a direct connection to the battery. Viola! It was super bright and projected a light coverage on the wall. Then I checked what's the root cause of the dimness and found it to be the ON-OFF switch. This switch is a fancy one with illumination and comes with a 34 Ohms internal resistance. I swap the switch that has 0.05 Ohms and the problem was solved. Lesson learned, check the switch resistance, especially when it is lighted when ON.
