Hello everyone This episode is about the ATV lighting When I bought this ATV it had a LED light bar mounted on it This light bar. I’m not going to put this one back on the ATV and I’m going to make an upgrade to: THIS ONE! A light bar from Auxbeam! This light bar has 24 LEDs, it’s 12 inch, and it’s got a power of 72W and 7200 lumens! And here I’ve also got the wiring harness necessary to mount it on the ATV Let’s see now what’s inside these 2 boxes I’m going to start with this bigger box. Here’s the LED light bar 6 flood LEDs on the right side 6 flood LEDs on the left side and 12 LEDs for the center light Mounting instructions a sticker and here contacting details and other info And in this little small box the mounting brackets Now let’s see what’s inside this box! Mounting instructions and the wiring harness. What can I say about what’s included in this package? I really appreciate that I have the wiring harness After reading the instructions, the installation process is very easy. I’ve got the mounting brackets here I really like that the LED light bar has 6 flood LEDs on the right and 6 on the left and 12 LEDs on the center of the light bar for spot light and the instructions provided are very clear and easy to follow. All that’s left to do now is to mount everything on the ATV. Before I start installing everything on the ATV, I want to show you a closer look at this wiring harness. and tell you how to install it. I’m going to undo the cables. Finished There seem to be a lot of cables here but there’s no need to worry! This button must be installed somewhere on the handlebar somewhere accessible so you can start and stop the light bar Here is the relay. The fuse And these 2 wires, this one goes to the negative ( – ) pole of the battery and this one to the positive ( + ) pole of the battery. and these 2 wires connect to the light bar. That’s all! There’s nothing complicated here, although it may not seem very easy at first. The installation process is very easy! I have to admit that when this package arrived, the first that I did was to get the light bar out of the box, and went out on the balcony in the middle of the night to test it! I was very curious and very eager to see how well this LED bar illuminates! Untill I mount this wiring harness on the ATV I want to show you what was my first reaction when I first tested the light bar. I just got the Auxbeam light bar out of the box, I connected the positive and negative wires to this lab bench power supply (made by myself) It’s set to 12 Volts And this is the first test of the light bar! What the F*#% ?!
It looks like the Sun just rose!! Woah, this thing is really bright! Incredible! If you point this at someone you might see his bones like on an X-ray! LOL WOW!
Just WOW! I finished mounting the wiring harness on the ATV’s frame I started from here, near the battery The ATV battery goes here Here’s the 12V relay, The 30 Amp fuse The wire that goes to the postive pole of the battery and the wire that goes tot the negative pole of the battery And from here 2 cables leave: the cable with 2 wires that power the light bar and the cable with 3 wires, that goes to the handlebar, at the On/Off switch Theswe 2 cables are masked on this side of the frame I tried to hide them and route them as good as possible. One ov the cables come from here to the handlebar routed nicely near the handlebars And here, on the left, is the On/Off switch. Right here. The other cable, that powers the light bar, Comes here, between the radiators and here’s the cable that powers the light bar. Next I’ll mount the ATVs fenders and after that I’ll mount the light bar onto the ATV. Let’s mount the fenders! The bolts that come in the mounting kit have “A2” marked on their head Which means they are made of stainless steel. This is a great thing because I’ll never have to worry about them rusting! The front rack will be painted too, and for when it’ll be painted, I’m going to put a piece of rubber between the bracket and the front rack, to protect the paint. I’ll mount it now too so I can mount the LED light bar. Don’t worry, in case you don’t have access to tools or the knowledge to create your own mounting brackets, I’ll put a link in the description to where you can buy mounting brackets for this LED light bar. They’re from Auxbeam and they have a pretty good price. And they look way better than the ones I made. And this is all the proccess of installing the LED light bar on the ATV. As you can see, it’s a pretty easy install that anyone ca do. Next I’ll test the light bar to see how bright it is compared to the ATVs stock headlights. Now, with the light bar mounted, let’s test the lights First, this is the ATV’s Low beam light This is the High beam And now I’m going to turn these off and turn on just the light bar I’m on a hill near a forest right now, This is the ATVs Low beam High beam now And now the LED light bar The difference between the ATV’s headlights and the LED light bar is indescribable,
it’s an incredibly big difference I’ll move away from the ATV and I hope I can get a better angle of how bright this light is, I have no comparison term, the light it offers is simply phenomenal The distance from the ATV to those trees ahead is about 60-70 meters ( 200-230 feet ) and the camera that I’m filming with now doesn’t make justice, and can’t truly capture the brightness of this light bar. I’ll go a little to the side, Move away from the ATV I’m going towards the trees that I’m lighting now I really have no comparison term The light beam is pointed straight at me now and it’s blindingly bright! I’ll try and film how this light performs during a short ride I’ll turn off the light bar, and turn on the Low beam High beam now These are useless The ATV’s stock headlights compared to the Auxbeam light bar are are nothing,
they seem useless. I’ll stop here for now, I want to tell you something, which from my point of view is as obvious as possible One of the best investments you can make in an ATV is to buy a LED light bar. Regarding this LED bar I’ll put a link in the video’s description below. Thanks for watching, don’t forget to subscribe, and I’ll see you next time!
