Default Led driving light ideas?

Hey guys. Give me some ideas on what y'all have for led driving lights on your VIC. I plan on putting them on a bracket attached to the fairing. I thought about putting them on the engine guard but I am not too sure about that yet. Pics and part numbers would be appreciated.

Hey Jim:

You have seen the pics of my lights on the engine guard. Where on the fairing do you want to put them?

guess its what you want to see is to wear you put them.
I would think a LED headlight would be the smart way to go instead of running lights

Broggy yes. I have. I was thinking of putting them where the turn signals are. Getting a bracket from AZ. Victory. I think I have the same ones you do... Black square ?

I initially wanted to put lights there but I wasn't sure how sturdy those brackets would be. I get the impression they'd let the lights bounce a little. I sure hope not.
Even so, the lights I have now I think are too big to go there.

Hope you figure something out.

Jim:

IMHO, a lot of this depends on what you want the lights for. For instance:

- If you want a classic cruiser look, ala Ultra Glide, et al., then I think AZ Vic and Broggyr are your go-to resources.

- If you want down-the-road driving lights for your next Iron Butt run, then I'd check out the (expensive) Denali and Clearwater offerings; my suggested starting point would be the webBikeWorld lighting page, http://www.webbikeworld.com/lights/ .

- If you just want to make yourself more conspicuous, then I'd recommend a light triangle instead of the straight-across light-bar type of setup. Along these lines, you might make do with something as small, simple, and cheap as the BikeVis Bullets, http://www.webbikeworld.com/lights/bikevis-bullets-v2/ . Or, moving up the scale in terms of price, sophistication, and conspicuity, you might want to look at the Skene products, such as the Photon Blasters: http://www.lights.skenedesign.com/PB_Features.shtml .

Me, I fall into the last category, so I have Motolights ( http://www.motolight.com/ ), which I removed from my Burgman 650 before selling it. I replaced the stock 35-watt halogen bulbs with 5-watt MR16 LEDs. If I were starting from scratch, I'd probably go with the Photon Blasters... but then, as I said, I fall in that last category, and only ride at night a few times a year; your priorities certainly may put you in one of the other categories.

Clearwater Darlas--2,000 lumens each. Pricey but worth it and the hook into both high and low beams. On high they are at 100%--on low they are at whatever you dialed the handlebar control down to so you don't dazzle oncoming. The mounting hardware is specific to your bike. Mall but very powerful. Nice. www.clearwaterlights.com

JPoker, there is a previous thread that helped me out when I added my LED lights to my XCT. I don't know how to post it tho!! Someone assist me please!!

Pain says they "light the night up". I'm real happy with the way they illuminate the road T night and provide better visibility during the day. Mounted on the "Engine guards", no interference with the hard lowers. I also changed the bolt for the bracket as stated in one of these posts. I actually have a second set of lights so if you wanna follow thru with the install, let me know. I can get the pair to you faster than if they had to come from China!!
