LED Aux lights added to my Gen1 KLR

Howdy, I just added a bunch of farkles to my Gen1 KLR and thought I'd share what I came up with.

In total I added ALL LED lights (all blinkers, tail light, license plate light, all lights in the instrument panel).

I also added the ADV Monster H4 LED headlight. (http://stores.advmonster.com/h4-led-headlight/)

To supplement the headlight I added Cyclops LED Optimus LED spot lights by the front fender. The left one is the 10 degree spot, and the right side one is the 30 degree spot. (http://www.cyclopsadventuresports.co...ound_p_10.html)



While I was happy with the long range lighting of the above, I needed some close-in flood illumination. I found this LED light bar from Amazon with has a 60 degree flood beam. After adding a bit of silicon gasket to it, it seems like a decent light, especially for the $17 price. (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...?ie=UTF8&psc=1 )







To tie everything together, I added a positive and negative bus bars to the front of the bike. The positive bus bar is activated with a relay, so there's only power going to it when the ignition is on. Further, I added a dash panel that has (from left to right): switch for the flood light bar, Heatroller rheostat for heated grips with LED indicator, Powerlet, and LED light indicator for the voltage monitor. The Cyclops long-range LEDs are activated with a new (red) handlebar mounted switch.



I thought I'd share what I've done with anyone that may be looking to do something similar this winter.
