Potentially stupid light question

I take forever to settle on a farkle...I'm considering adding LED lights to increase daytime visibility and to augment the high beam for night time riding..So...can anyone tell me if there is any significant difference between these;

Denali D2 Dual Intensity LED Lighting Kit with Full Wiring Harness and M8 Mount - TwistedThrottle.ca

And these;

MondoMotos MM10 Bullet LED Auxiliary Light Kit (V3) | MondoMotos Motorcycle Lighting, LED Lighting and Accessories

They look to be of equal output.....

Why Motorcycles? Because Golf, Soccer, Football and Baseball only require One Ball

Best warranty for me. These new fangeled led's and Crees aren't as dependable as advertised in my experience.

The Denali's are dual density meaning they have a high and low beam which from the specs is a 10* spot light or a 40* flood light. The second pair is a 25* light which is still along the lines of a flood light but not as wide but definitely not a spot light.


Up against the $80 lights I had on my KLR compared to the expensive Denali's on my Strom, I liked my cheaper KLR's lights better. That and if they went bad or I broke them they were 5 times cheaper to replace.

I see a couple differences which seem significant to me. The MondoMotos MM10 Bullet appears to have some kind of over-temperature protection whereas the Denali D2 description makes no mention of such. The write-up is not clear, but from it I infer that the MM10 has circuitry to reduce power so as to limit temperature rise. This seems like a good idea for the application, where the amount of airflow is highly variable and can go to zero. Then again, the D2 has a slightly better package for imparting waste heat into the airflow. On balance, I would prefer the protective circuitry, if that's what it is.

I didn't want to spend a fortune on auxiliary lights so I bought the MondoMotos. For the price they are an excellent buy, they are bright but not too bright for daytime lights. I have them mounted on the forks just above the front fender. Gives a good triangle of light.
