I've had those - they are pretty incredible for the money - I use my lights as DLRs (smaller 10w LED's) though and they are a bit overkill on the little Honda - super bright (blinding) and quite heavy but perfect for aux lights with main beam.   :028:

Should be a fairly easy install as I have crash bars that come up to the top of the engine level, and can route the wires under both side panels .

actually check AliExpress before going somewhere else.
Most EBAY or AMAZON sellers buying there anyways, double the price and try to sale it somewhere else.

I am buying LED Working lights and Auxillary lights since about 5 years with AliExpress, usually fast delivery and much cheaper.

Santa has made an early delivery for the 500X


   


           




First impression amazing quality for the price, stainless steel nuts and bolts, washers wiring harness with waterproof connectors. 

 Did a 12v test and there seems to be a wide flat beam :005:

Nice one enjoy!  Only problem with them are the cheap plastic moulded brackets which are not very strong and crack very easily.  The lights themselves are heavy duty and metal, why do they ruin it with cheap plastic brackets...
Try to use washers when threading the brackets!

The Brackets look quite substantial to me but time will tell.

Nice looking bit of kit, comes with a good connection package at that price a bargain.
I went for 60w lights from ebay, had to buy the relays and make my own harness and then found the brackets didn't fit my set up so had to make a bracket to fit.
Loads of hassle which I could have avoided had I bought a set like yours.

I would be interested in how you wire them into your system, mine is a 2016 model so I'm wanting to find a switched live by ignition feed under the seat.

Job done!   

     Lights fitted, just needed to remove the right side panels so I could feed the wiring along the top of the frame and zip tie in position (no need to lift the tank see photo ) the circle is the connecter for the right hand light.
On the left hand I just managed to feed the wire through on top of the radiator behind the left panel, again zip tie the excess wire to the main wiring harness.
 
The lights are very bright  .:005: even from 45 degrees I have initially set them -2 deg from vertical.

Looking good, where did you take the power from? I'm looking for a live supply when ignition is on from under the seat, there is a red capped plug that has a live brown wire, wondering if this will be enough to switch the relay.
Does anyone know if this will work or of an alternative, my bike is a 2016 model.
