Been playing around with a few of the cutter xpg 7up pcb boards and am almost finished with the design.

Build:

Cutter XPG407R5-CW

Driver: taskled maxflex

Body: t6 aluminum

Switch: Trick CPI B5000 momentary waterproof remote switch(for mounting on handlebar)

Battery: gens ace 4000 mah 14.8v 4s1p battery in custom carbon battery holder

I am waiting for my cable gland and cabling.

Here are a few pics of the initial build:

Front:





Version 2.0:

I made a second one and handle bar bracket + cerakoted it in blue titanium:





I fired it up and everything works. Hope to have it together and on my bike tonight.

Thanks for looking...

Love the look of that coating. Does it hurt the heat dissipation of the light?
The Cerakote-h finish is used on members at cpf and some limited production(expensive) lights. It is extremely thin. Recommended application thickness of Cerakote should be .001". While it doesn't conduct heat as well as non-oxidized metals do, ceramic coatings measured in micrometers are not nearly insulating enough to cause any problems -- otherwise, anodized aluminum would be impractical as a flashlight shell, because anodizing is ceramic.

Great looking light.
Will be doing some Gun-kote in the near future.
A few guys here have used these bake on coatings with good sucess.
I tend to anodize my lights, but I want to try something new.
That is a very good looking color. Might have to look into Cerakote in the future.
That is an awesome mount you came up wiht for you light. Nice work.

Update:

I got the cabling done for now and the light is programmed and on the bike. I can't wait for darkness to try it out for an evening ride.

Here are some pics on the bike:

The switch is excellent. What was the price for it?
I found one cheap at a surplus site on ebay. I think I paid 15 bucks for it. I wish I could find more at that price. The switch is awesome. Just the right amount of tactile click and it is sealed...

How do you like the beam pattern? I bought the Polymer lenses and they won't fit over the driver board I chose to use. The lens like yours works fine so I think I'll be using that.
