Had some time today so went to look at upgrading the cab lights. I have some 6” leds and the housing looked similar in size. Took the Kioti light off and pulled the bulb assembly out to see if I could swap the guts. Found something else very interesting (IMO), the base of the bulb is stamped with “not for use in EUROPE/US”. I called my dealer and asked them to check with the regional rep to see how they react.

What's the wattage on the bulb? I don't know if this is for you, but I bought whole LED Nilights from Amazon and put on female 880 connectors using the stock wiring. It is a whole world of difference.

Front and rear

880 female adapters that I soldered onto Nilight harness.

Pretty sure those are the same lights I used on my ROPs. Or my truck, or my camper.

I have lots of nilights, for the money a very good light.

Never heard from Kioti about lights, no real surprise. Because of you all I ordered some nilights to replace the factory. Waiting on my helper to lift cab roof.
While waiting, I got the Kioti Beacon lamp kit DKA149 (~$40) to power the rear plugs. I also ordered an Agrieyes pole mount beacon and bracket (~$42)

The beacon kit provided the relay, wiring harnesses (one for switch, one for light) and switch. Pop the hood, add a relay, remove 3 console screws, pop in new switch and harness. The extender is a steel piece 2"x6"x 1/8"

I put 3M hefty double sided taped steel brackets on my composite roof, and added a magnetic LED beacon to mine.

After some use shifting the manure pile, I decided some side lighting would be helpful. The Dk has the same plug and mount on both rear sides so I sourced a new plug 7222-1424-40 - Yazaki | SWP-2P - Corsa Technic | 2-Way Kit for the other side (beacon kit had one) and added 2 - 6" leds to the beacon circuit

Today , I added a 37” led light bar. A friend came by and I was supposed to put it on his truck but it was 1/2” too big for where he wanted it on the headache rack. Fit pretty good on the tractor.

Nilight 468w
