Ounce for ounce, one of the brightest lights on the market . You will be shocked at the light output of such a small package. Forced cooling and an external driver enables the light to be so small, no more large heatsinks and bulky housings to keep the leds cool. The Model 56FA light kit includes everything you need to install a pair of lights to your choice of mounting location.
Two (2) Model 56FA Off Road Led lights.
Your choice of H4 or Direct connect PnP wiring harness in 2 wire (amber or white beam only) or 3 wire (amber low beam, white high beam).
About the Model 56FA
LED type: Cree
Optics: Projector lens
Housing: Machined aluminum, powder coated, openings sealed with orings to insure waterproofness.
Mount: U shaped, powder coated steel. Stainless steel M6 mounting bolt, washer and nyloc nut.
Size: 1.5in diameter by 1.8in long. (38mm diam X 57mm long)
Light Performance (single light)
Low Beam Pattern(degrees): 15 degree beam with a sharp, level upper beam cutoff. The upper beam cutoff makes this light DOT compliant and traffic friendly. The amber, 2700k kelvin color temperature light output further enhances the ability to see in adverse conditions like fog and rain. The projector lens controls the light output such when properly aimed a dimmer is not needed for low beam operation.
High Beam Pattern(degrees): 15 degree beam with a sharp, level upper beam cutoff. Cool white high beam is stacked on top of the low beam to provide maximum distance.
Light output (lumens): low beam 2000 lumens, high beam 2600 lumens
Color Temperature (kelvin): low beam 2700k (amber), high beam 5700k (cool white)
Usable Light (feet/meters): TBD
Power Usage: 1.2amps or 15watts on low beam, 1.2amps @12vdc or 15 watts on high beam.
About the Wiring Harnesses
H4 PnP Wiring Harness
Electrical installation of auxiliary lights just got a lot easier. If you've upgraded your H4 headlight to an led, the saved amps/watts are used to run the auxiliary lights. Your oem low/high beam switch is used to control the lights. Turn on the bike and the lights come on with the low beam, turn on the high beams and the lights go to full power. Not recommended for use with a halogen headlight bulb. The 2 wire harness provides either amber or white beam.
Plug n Play: No soldering, crimping or other wire prep required. Electrical connections completed in less than 5 minutes! It will take you longer to route the wires than it will to connect the wiring. The H4 harness is approximately 6"/15cm long.
Light Wiring: Wire length is 48 inches including driver. Sheathed lead provides resistance to rubs, scraps and other potential damage while maintaining waterproofness. Adequate length for mounting on lower fork. Driver is 40 inches from light and intended to be mounted out of view.
1) Disconnect the H4 connector from the headlight.
2) Plug said connector into the male end of the H4 harness.
3) Connect the H4 harness female to the headlight.
4) Connect lights to H4 harness.
5) Secure harness, all done!
Direct Connect Harness
Plug n Play: No soldering, crimping or other wire prep required. Connects to the battery or power source and is controlled directly via switch. Automatic high beam when selected using your oem headlight switch. Turn on the high beam and the lights go to full power, turn off the high beam and the lights return to the amber low beam. Use switch to turn low beam lights on or off. If connected to a switch power source, the light will come on and shut off with the ignition. The 2 wire harness provides either amber or white beam.
Custom: We can customize the wire lengths to meet your needs. Typically there will be adequate wire, with length to spare.
Switch: Your choice of
1) Handlebar mounted switch - turns amber beam on/off, white beam controlled by your oem high beam switch.
2) Waterproof push button on/off switch. Switch can be panel mounted (3/8" hole) or surface mounted with velcro or double sided tape. Works the same as the Handlebar switch.
3) Waterproof 3 position handlebar mounted switch - Controls amber and white beams.
1) Remove fuse from holder.
2) Connect ring connectors to battery. If you are using a power distribution panel or other switched power source, remove the ring connectors.
3) Route harness forward towards headstock. Be sure to avoid pinch points and other possible wire damaging sources like exhaust etc.
4) Mount switch, route the separate switch harness towards mating connector near headstock. Plug switch connector into main harness.
5) Connect the blue wire on switch harness to the high beam positive wire using the provided posi-tap connector.
6) Route light wire leads to the mating connector(s) on main harness. Plug in connectors if wire routing looks good. Secure drivers.
7) Mount lights. Ensure the wire exit from the light points to the ground. This will maintain the beam pattern in the correct orientation.
8) Temporarily secure lights and connect to the driver wire lead.
9) Secure harness, reinstall fuse, check light functions. Switch should turn on/off the low beam, your oem high/low beam switch will turn on the high beam. If choosen, the 3 position switch controls all beams.
10) Aim beam pattern. Low beam amber beam pattern should be about the same height as the low beam on the bike. Adjust width to preference.
11) Secure light mount hardware. All done!

Just bought this 56 FA LED Light Kit for my 95 BMW R100 RT ! Installation was a Breeze and i spent more Time to rout the Wiring ! On my BMW i had to punch 2 Holes on the lower Section of the Headlight Bucket and protect the Wiring with Grommets and Wire Sheating !
Definitely i will buy another Set for my 76 BMW R 60/6 in the Future ! Also John helped me a Lot to make this Decision !

These lights are incredibly bright for the size! Really easy install on my V-Strom and having the yellow on low beam and white on high beam is awesome! They aren’t annoying for other riders ahead of me but they all say you can see them for miles. All the riders in my group now want to buy them. Affordable, good quality, compact, and bright!
Cons: High beam is a little higher than I like. I have them adjusted so the low (yellow) beam is visible to other vehicles but not blinding. Just wish the high beam was about a foot lower at 100 ft in front of me. Overall, I’d buy again in a heartbeat!
