Black Mamba Headlight Installation Instructions

Based on installing the Black Mamba headlight to a Suzuki DRZ400 with stock headlight. Installing the Black Mamba headlight is straightforward.

. Step 1 : Choose which wires you want to be the ground and positive for each of the lights, it doesn’t matter which wire you select as long as one wire is the ground (-) and one is the positive
2. Step 2: Remove stock headlight from the bike (if it has one), you will have to drop the fork tubes to remove the bracket. Locate the stock headlight 3 prong black socket.
3. Step 3: With the socket facing forward and you looking directly at it, you should not that the ground (-) will be on the right side, low beam will be on top and high beam will be on the left.
4. Step 4: You will need to pick-up some crimp-on wire terminal connectors from an automotive store or Radio Shack. Crimp all the ground wires onto two of the terminal connectors and plug them into the 3 prong socket. You should be able to get two terminal connectors to fit into the right side of the 3 prong socket.
5. Step 5: Select any of the two headlights you want to go into your low beam and high beam sections of the 3 prong socket. We recommend using the two outside smaller lights as your low beam and the two inner lights as your high beam. You can also run all the headlights at the same time by plugging them all into your low beam socket however you will no longer have a toggle between high and low (not recommended for street use).
6. Step 6: You may have to use an auger drill bit to open the wholes slightly on the plastic headlight because the anchor on the rubber straps is slightly bigger than the whole on the headlight housing. (if applicable)

This is great, thanks for the how to.

I'm wondering, does the high beam circuit run your low-beams as well making it brighter by running 4 bulbs? or does it simply run those two bulbs brighter?

I'm not totally familiar with the way motorcycle headlights work but I was wondering if the low-beams would need to be connected to the high and low beam terminals so they don't turn off when in high beam positions.... sheesh, giving myself a head ache here.

Thanks again!

The DYU King 750 Fat Tire Electric Bike Is a Lot Of Bike For the Money

You can't beat the planted feeling you get aboard a fat tire ebike. It feels like you could hop off the saddle and walk away and the bike would remain standing. Good shock dampening, great grip on the road, more tire to eat up ruts and curbs.  The DYU King 750 electric bike  is a fat tire ebike that stands out for its good looks and very reasonable price tag.  28 MPH top speeds means this bike can get up hills and maintain speed with ease and I can think of 5 ebikes on the market right now that have similar features and style and sell for nearly $4,000 and you'll pay shipping.  Perhaps best of all is DYU offers a 14 day test ride policy and if you don't like what you get you can send the bike back.   

Hardware: Supermoto Wheels Explained

Supermoto wheels are a big investment, when you factor that your 2-3 year old dirt bike may have a resale value in dirt form in the $4-5K range, if that. We get calls from guys all the time who say "well, I'm not really racing or nothing, so I'm just looking for the cheapest wheels you have to convert to Supermoto". Well, the real reply there is that there really isn't a cheap way to get into Supermoto unless you're going to go Sportsman about it and ride on knobbies or some type of dual-sport tire. Quality 17-inch supermoto wheels that will last are going to set you back between $800 and $2000 depending on how deep you're going to go at this and whether you want quality and performance or just a good price. Motostrano is a full scale supermoto specialist and we've been involved in Supermoto since it's re-birth in the United States in 2002. We offer complete supermoto wheels made from the finest materials and built by experience wheel builders

Riding the Moustache Samedi 27 2X Tandem Electric Bike

I love riding with my partner and riding by tandem is one of my favorite ways to get around on a Sunday. Touring by tandem is literally twice as fun as riding solo,when you are on a bike with the one you love and the one that loves you. But tandem bikes are rare and excellent electric tandem bikes are even rarer, so I wanted to give you a fresh impression of our ride yesterday on the 2018 MOUSTACHE Samedi 27 X2 tandem . Moustache is a French company, making some of the most innovative ebikes in the world. Their tandem is no exception. This bike comes in two build types, either a smooth tire touring type or a knobby tire off-road type, but the frames, motors and other specs are pretty much the same.  I've ridden tandems for the past few years on road and off road. Yesterday we did a Meet-Up ride with other fellow ebikers in the Sonoma area. Naturally we were the only tandem riders, with others riding solo on their Haibikes, KTM, Giant, Felt and Blix bikes. Out and
