Red face Mounting High Way Lights

I am putting the 09 Kingpin in the drive in cellar (heated) for the winter with the rest of the summer toys and am planning some add ons to it for the long winter nights after football is over and between hockey games. One of the things is the addition of driving lights. I live in the country and really need the extra light on the sides of the road and out there because of the critters. I had a Cobra light bar on my Vulcan and really liked it. Nothing like that will fit my Kingpin with it's windshield. I really like the Rivco 4.5" driving lights and want to mount them on the inverted fork shrouds. Can't find any chrome 55 mm mounting brackets anywhere. Any one know where I can get these? I don't want to mount any sissy 2" lights on the crash bar. I like the idea that the Rivcos come with their own relays and tie ins to the existing switching and have high and low beams as well as running lights in them. Help please.

Kuryaken makes a set that should fit your 55-56mm forks. Think I got mine from www.victoryonly.com.

That's what I used for mine. I went with small 2" LED style lights but they put out a crazy amount of light. https://www.victoryforums.com/showthread.php?t=56938

I also second the recommendation on the HID upgrade which is so cheap and easy.

Default Mounting Highway lights

Already have HID. Want the extra lighting for side visibility on low beam mainly. Also like the look of triple lights. Thanks for the suggestions. Victoryonly.com is out of the 56mm clamps and they would have to be modified to take the Rivco lights. Have contacted Rivco. They are always looking for suggestions and new products. They have 41 mm fork clamps which work great on other bikes, no reason they can't get 56 mm made. We'll see. Thanks again. Mark

My idea for mounting some extra lights to my HighBall:

1) Strip down a set of stock blinkers, saving the fork mount
2) mount the lights to the old blinker mounts
3) heat shrink of something similar the mount and light bracket (cosmetic appeal).
4) mount back on the forks and wire in to my low beams, the ideal of a dual beam bulbs has crossed my mind, in which case I would wire to both low and high beam.

BUT none of this has panned out yet, still looking for the lights, trying to decide what I want.

$20,000 and 3000 miles DO NOT make you a biker

Default Light Mounts

The turn signal mounts on my King Pin are kind of flimsy to hold up the 3.5" steel/chrome high/low lights I want to put on. I tried ordering some 56mm mounts that were out of stock from Wings (Victoryonly.com) but they came back to me with a refund since the don't know when they will be making them again. I found some 54 mm billet aluminum ones on ebay from Thailand that may work, (might have to machine them out to size.) I might spring for the $60 to get them if I can't find anything else.

What about www.kuryakyn.com ?
Just search for fork mounts.
They have a set of 54-58mm.
Part 2275.
$80 but you won't have to wait for international shipping if you are in a hurry.
