Those are nice lights and the perfect size for that application imo. Describe how you ran the wires?

I used the Victory switch, about $26.00 if I remember correctly. It's a quality piece. First tried the cheapy $7 kind from an auto parts store, but it broke apart mounting it in the slot. First remove both painted tipover bar covers. I ran a 12 guage wire thru the left switch hole down thru the triple tree and followed the Victory wire harness along the left side of steering head back, then down the wire loom/harness to the back side of the battery. I left myself plenty of wire, because I plan on having the dealer wire it into the accessory connection under the tank when I have them replace the air filter. Low on this wire, as close to the battery as I could , I spliced in a 10 amp covered fuse. But I left it where I could access it if it blew and I needed to get to it. Then ran 2 wires down thru the switch hole, one going to the right side and one to the left side. (foloowing the Victory harness/cables) Ran those wires across the top of the tipover bars (zip tied as needed). The wires run between the horizontal & vertical bars down to the lights. The brackets are actually exhaust brackets I got at the J&P store in Daytona. I removed the front bolt out of the tipover bar & loosened the rear. I was able to flex the vertical & horizontal bar apart to slide the bracket up between the bars and slipped in the bolt. The rear bolt is then spaced out using stainless flat washes the thickness of the bracket. Made my connections at the switch and battery and was finished. I used the large Silver Bullets(about 2 1/2" in diameter) that have the wire exiting the chrome housing with the solid bolt. They come with 20 watt bulbs, but I replaced them with 35's ($6 apiece) that I got from Custom Dynamics, They also make a compatible LED that fits, about $45 a piece. Hope this answers your questions.

When you reply, above the text box where you type, among a bunch of other icons, you should see a paper-clip icon. Click that, and the "manage attachment" window will pop-up.

They look awesome. I love the position you've chosen for the install. Have you installed a vertical bracket to which the lights are mounted on? If yes, is it sandwiched between the vertical and horizontal members of the crash bars? Would you take another close-up or two showing us your handy work?

If you look close at the top picture, you'll see the bracket that the Silver Bullet is attached to & the bracket going up between the horizontal & vertical roll bar.
