Numb - How are you liking the Rigid's?
Anyone else using these?
Compare to VisionX?
LED's from Autozone, wired into the canbus connector.
So bright, they actually light up the shoulder of the road at night.
Oncoming cage drivers really notice them, they have saved me from being run into by inattentive drivers more than once. :eek1
Pic below taken during the day with the garage door closed - ie, they are VERY BRIGHT!
Home made light mounts using a couple of 1" x 1/8" aluminum stock with a couple of holes drilled in strategic locations.
... and the Clearwater lights LED city running lights.
Between the two sets, the LED lights are much more expensive at $500 for the kit instead of $300 for the HIDs, but at least the LED's won't cause cagers to flash me. Most of the time.
Last, but definitely not least, the HIDs...
I liked the LEDs so much that I put a set on my 12R also.
thinking about getting HID for the main beam.
Just Added Some Denali lights they are amazing overpower the GS lights.i recomend them . Sorry about the crappy Pics ,iPhone
All i can see is a purty red bike in the background!
Yeah its a beast ,What about my nice lights ???
Hey Stephen, do you have a pic of the handlebar switch for the Twalcoms? What do you think of them so far?
Anyone using Rigid led's?
I've got VisionX on one bike, wondering how the two compare
Those look just like my PIAA's which were acquired from Touratech. The guards used to have a TT logo on them, but I have since removed it.
See post 180.
Same for me, except mine are Hella, not PIAA.
I want to install a set of led lights so low amp draw...can i tap into the GPS plug by the airbox for power instead of buying the plug? I am going to run a 10 amp switch, no relay. should i ground to the battery or the same plug?
I'm no electrical wizard but am pretty handy and want to know if this is the best way to go for switched power.
Thanks for the info guys.
Have a look here I tapped in to the high beam switch
Still makes me laugh Is that a ring? Remind me to tell you about the time...
I'll have lighting write up in the next couple of weeks - trying to solve some mounting issues (where is she now?) and waiting on pieces. Bitch is gonna glow.
It looks like this:
Yeah it's this one F800 Rob posted.
The actual lights are the Hella DEs so excellent quality and they give out plenty of light. I even have them on during the day. The bracket and hardware is Twalcom and I personally think they're easilty the best looking aux spots available for the F800GS - better looking than Touratechs and cheaper. I would prefer the braket to be marginally lower to make the light pattern more triangular but I'm very happy with them. AdventureBikeWarehouse in the UK even fitted them free of charge.
My mounting bracket for the toggle switch is modified as it had to be bent slightly to accommodate the Barkbusters. I do like the toggle switch but I'm replacing it for an Autoswitch that will work off the indicator cancel button. My current toggle switch position is not best placed as the tank bag hits it when on full lock.
NB: apparently the current autoswitch is incompatible with HID... the new one is going into Beta testing soon according to the website.
I firstly had 55w driving lights (waste of time)...
Then I went with the narva compact 100mm, they were good on the road, but didn't help much in the dirt. So now I'm trying 4" hids, the near side is a euro pattern and far is a spot. I like the euro pattern and will probably change the spot to a euro down the track. Enough gas bagging here's the pics...
