Default Victory or Freight Train?

I almost used a subject of "now me banggood" ....

I got around to mounting up and wiring my 4x6w LED driving lights from Banggood last night. As many others have mentioned, pretty nice items for the price.

I found a good 12vt trigger source under the seat from an unused plug, installed a relay with primary power off battery, mounted a small toggle switch on the bottom of my left side panel to make it easy to turn these off (dawn, dusk, night), and I think everything came out in good shape.

I know you want a triangle of light for driver attention, but I didn't like how they looked on my Hammer down low.

Here's the head on view with them turned on (and there was daylight streaming in the garage windows behind me). I'll post a few more pics with some other angles in a min.

1. Pic of only the HID headlight on

2. Pic of just the driving lights on (I just placed a thick towel over my headlight to cover up the beam)

3. Pic of both of them on, which is so bright my camera seemed to dim everything in order to get the shot.

Banggood.com

They have some pretty good stuff for the $, just takes several weeks to arrive.

It was just under $90 for a pair and then I had to find some fork mounts for them.

the reason I asked is if you hit a bad pot hole it could jam into your fender

I see what caught your eye. There is no stud. That is just a shadow created by the indention on part of the brake system (part where one line enters and two lines leave for the dual discs) as it provides access to the bolt holding the brake assembly splitter in place.

Lights were from banggood.com

Mounts I chose to use were Kuryakyn fork mounts. Took a little work to get everything lined up right and tightened.
