We already ride quite a while with our auxiliary headlights by 4XLED and in case you are still thinking about adding some more lights to your bike, here some good reasons and also some pictures how we installed them on our Yamaha XT660 bikes.
Why more light?
As road user you are more visible even through the day
If your motorcycle shines very bright it seams bigger and one makes probably more room even for „only a bike“
If you are riding in a team your comrade can spot you much faster in his side mirror
If your riding at night you can spot obstacles and potholes way earlier
Why the 4XLED Supermini MID?
High-end aluminium case 45mm diameter / 40mm length
Appealing design (no cheap plastic parts)
Included mountings, fuses, waterproof plugs and cable set, all in high quality
Optional there is a switch to use the LED lamps at two different brightness grades
We wanted to mount the headlights on both motorcycles as far apart as possible. This way we get the best angle to illuminate everything in front of the bikes. Nevertheless, the headlights should not be placed in a too exposed position, otherwise they might get damaged during a fall. Above you find the pictures and explenations on how we mounted the lights on our motorbikes.
As you can see in the pictures below, the difference between with and without auxiliary headlights is pretty impressive. The two steps are again very different and are often used by us. Stage 1 is on most of the time, so that we are clearly visible during the day.
Stage 2 is used in unlit tunnels or when we have to ride during the night. Even if you have to set up the tent at night, it can be very helpful to have auxiliary headlights.
Do you have auxiliary headlights or do you think that this is something useless? Write us and let us know if you have any questions!
