LR4 Light Brackets for the Gen2 FJR

Posted by on Nov 4, 2013 in Blog | 0 comments

Our friend Dave over at WynPro Machine has designed some top notch light mounts for the LR4 flood light. I have to say these brackets look great, and the fit and finish is top notch. They are rock solid, and designed with an emphasis on stability and minimum vibration. Here’s what’s included with the brackets from WynPro: One pair of 1/4 inch thick 6061-T6 aluminum brackets. (no finish at this time) One set of rubber gaskets to protect the fairing. Stainless steel mounting hardware (5mm socket flat head screw, washer, lock washer and locknut) These will fit a Gen2 FJR. There is an access hole for the cable to allow Gen2 owners to feed right through the vents. These do not come finished. You can paint them yourself or have them painted. Price will be $50.00 shipped to the lower 48 states. Canadian FJR owners $57.00 U.S. Note: These light brackets are sold directly from WynPro.

1000 Foot LR4 Shots

Posted by on Nov 4, 2013 in Blog | 0 comments

The pictures below show the awesome range of the LR4 LED motorcycle floods. The custom engineered mirrored reflector allows a pair of LR4 floods to throw usable light well past 1000 feet. Unlike comparable lights, the LR4’s advanced optics throws light farther without the near field glare, while still providing a strong flood pattern. Bike was in turnout on right side of road on center stand, 2004 FJR 1300. Camera was on tripod on the left side of road. 1st tree is at 750 feet, second tree is at 1000 feet. GPS was reset at the farthest tree and bike ridden up to the pull out and turned around: https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-c-tgnYwIsB8/UndK8_eavnI/AAAAAAAACnc/pfYmP4xFgpA/s912/IMG_20131102_235944.jpg Note: you can click on the pictures on drop box to zoom in to full size.

LED auxiliary lights and FM Radio interference

Posted by on Nov 1, 2013 in Blog | 0 comments

We recently had a customer purchase a set of our LR4 Quad Cree XML U2 motorcycle lights that were installed on a Honda Goldwing. The customer reported that when the lights were turned on it caused interference with the FM radio signal. After some research we discovered that the cause of the radio interference was due to the PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) circuit in the lights which was being picked up by the radio through the wiring. We suggested installing a ferrite choke on the LED leads and shipped a set of Fair Rite RF chokes to the customer. Our customer reported back that once the chokes were installed on the wiring, that the lights being on no longer had any effect on radio reception :). If you’re have problems with your LED motorcycle lighting affecting FM or AM radio reception, we suggest installing the following ferrite chokes. Fair-Rite 0431164181 EMI/RFI Suppressor:   When installing RF chokes on your wiring, it is best to get the choke as close to the light as possible. The wire should also be looped once through the choke, so the core clamps around the wire loop. Note that any ferrite core choke with a frequency range of 1MHz to 300MHz should work for this application, and are available at Radio Shack and other electronics...
