MondoMotos MM10 Bullet LED Auxiliary Light Kit
Wiring, so I am going to give several options for wiring, including conditions I would expect you to follow.
What I ask is for you to post a review so others on this forum can benefit from this info.
If I bought these, which I may depending on the reviews from others, this is what I would do, listed in order of preference #1 being my preferred method and #3 my least favourite.
#1--Remove the 5 watt city light bulbs and convert to led bulbs.
Connect the negative black wires for the Mondo lights to the engine ground , located 5 inches from the starter motor. If you don't have a crimp, get two stainless washers, place one washer directly on top of the engine ground crimp , strip auxiliary ground wire insulation, and wrap around terminal, place second washer on top of wire, add original nut and tighten. Most stainless washers are half the thickness of ferrous washers.
Connect positive switch wire to city lights positive wire Brown with white tracer, connect return wire from switch to positive Mondo lights.
Advantage, lights come on with key, but can also be used in the locked steering Park position, total watts is claimed to be 10 watts each or 20 Watts total.
Note #1; City lights uses a 10 amp fuse and powers the tail light, so if you had a short, you would still have your regular headlight. Personally I would install a waterproof inline fuse that is the same as your regular fuses, fuse it at or below 5 amp.This way if you crash and damage the wiring, all other devices continue to work as normal.
In the case of #2 or #3, it is a must to fuse the wire coming from the headlight.
Note #2***preferred method of all connections especially in #2 & #3 is strip a 1/4 or less insulation of the wire being tapped and solder and tape, the splice connectors work fine in a pinch but tend to cut/ break copper strands
#2 Follow same procedure for ground in #1, but connect the positive switch to the low beam headlight, wire Blue with Yellow tracer
Lights only come on after motor is running.
#3 Follow same procedure for ground in #1, connect switch positive to high beam red with black tracer
Lights only come on with motor running and are switched on and off with the high beam or passing switch only.
I could not find a candle power rating for these, as wattage is meaningless without a candlepower rating.
