Check! There sure is!

Although mine had a small drain hole under the upper bracket. Nothing a little dap of silicone can't fix!

Question Lights ??

Hey Mr. Bill

Great job on the lights - do you have any pictures from further away (say 100' or so) both day & night ?? Just wondering how these show up at a distance.

Thanks .. Larry

Not as bright as I thought it would be. But about the same as the head lights. I'm going to take a few more when its dark

A few more photos of the LED pod lights with different camera settings at about 75 feet. I also run 30% brighter bulbs in the head lights. Still the stock wattage.

Question Headlights bulbs ??

Hey Mr. Bill ...
Thanks for the pictures ... the LED pod lights really add to your visibility in the night photos.

A couple of more questions if you have time ...
Can you post some pictures of how you mounting the LED pod light to your bike.

What brand of headlights are you using ??

Thanks .. Larry

I made some Highway pegs out of some scrap metal and attached them to my skid plate then bolted on the pod lights.





I bought the lights at a local auto parts store for $30. I made sure they had MR16 bulbs. Found this on line pn HMR16LEDW481 $8 ea free shipping. Do a search for MR16 LED bulbs. There's lots of different types of MR16 bulbs. There also used for 12v low voltage lighting.
