LED lights

Finally got around to mounting my lights. The stock front turn signals are a great location to put the LED lights. I removed the stock turn signals, and wired them into LED lights that I picked up from SuperBrightLED, and mounted them into the HDB Bark-Busters. So, now this location has been freed up for the LED lights. There will be a (model 60) Flood-light on one side, and a (Model 30) Spot-light on the other to cover all areas.

Might want to consider our Dualsport Fairing. It will outperform the HID in lighting and pull less watts, plus you get all the other great benefits as well.

+1 The LED's in the Dual Sport Fairing are much better than the HID I had in there before. And more reliable.

Thanks for the heads-up, guys. Ugh, should'a done more research,,, I already have the new dual-beam headlight and fairing, and the HID's are ordered. Maybe next season if this don't work out.

Here's the one I got, with LED turn signals built in, seemed reasonable at the time. UFO Stealth:

Still having problems with my m10. I hate to throw it away. Your fix didn't do anything.

Here is an updated photo of my fairing and lights with turn signals mounted in fairing. This is a really great set up.

Installed mine today
Looking great and finally I'm able to use my turn signals (TG were way too big :o)

Now I'm waiting for my auto switch to arrive to wire them permanently :o)

I like it!

I read that aux lights should be mounted as high as possible, currently I have mine mounted hanging but thinking of changing so they stand on the mount bracket. What is better for safety?

what safety do you mean? Won't change anything since you can adjust the lights. Fog lights should be mounted as low as possible. Screw them tight with loctite and you shouldn't have a problem.
