Versys Auxiliary LED Running Light Install & Aluminum Brackets

I ordered the light brackets from Twisted Throttle but (to me) are way over engineered and mount on the outside of the tank/cowling. You could mount KC Daylighters on them, returned. So I bought $10 worth of thick aluminum bar stock and made mounts.

There are brackets off each side of the frame under the cowling in basically the same potion, with 2 holes and only requiring a slight bend in one of the mounts for both sides to be identical in potion, measurements the same.

This is a 'no drill' or 'scratch' add-on!

A bit of polishing and stainless hardware, 10w LEDS, just could not be happier. Well not true, will hook them up tomorrow, then happy. At least no stator worries with the slight amp draw.

That is a nice and tidy place for driving lights.

Yeah. On the older models (like mine) that's right where the signals are
