Are they the ones that start in a different mode each time you turn them on? I have some that look identical that do the start mode shuffle.
If they are and you know how to mode them to start on a normal mode each time I would appreciate your advice.

The always start up with High Beam, if I on and off within a couple of seconds it goes to low beam and then again for flashing. If ther are off for more than 5 seconds, it always starts with High Beam

Get these...I did, like yours but single mode only, and as far as I'm aware the only place on Planet Earth you can get them  :046:

I hope all of you added one of those tiny in line fuse box, having had some similar on
my Honda and seeing the serious amp draw they took, better have some extra fuse
for your Tiger's safety.
Alliexpress electrics can be finicky or hit or miss, better be safe than sorry.

Been on my bike 4 years, 12,000 miles, worked flawlessly...or you can buy Triumph spotlights for 340 and get shafted.  :125:

Well, ive had these ones before on my 885i with no problems and better than shelling out nearly 350 for the triumph ones. Each to their own I guess
