New Driving Lights

Since I can't ride because it's 10 degrees outside and we are about to get another foot and a half of snow in the next 2 days I figured I'd torture myself and install some goodies.
I started by hooking up a relayed auxiliary fuse block under my seat to power accessories that's only powered once the bike is started. once that was all wired up it made hooking up my new Kuryakyn constellation driving lights and turn signals really easy. there is a switch on my left side cover if I want to ride with the driving lights off. everything was really easy to hook up and now I can't wait till spring even more.

Looking pretty schnazy! The junction block is a great idea. I really wish I had done that on my first add on. Between the battery tender, horn relay & driving lights, my battery terminals are getting a little claustrophobic. If I add anything else, I will have to do some house keeping on my wires.

Torque is the source of all good things.

It's really cheap to do, which is why I just did it from the start. I think total it cost me $15 to put the fuse block and relay for it in.

I agree, if I add anything else I will have to put longer bolts in the battery terminals great idea jToad118 wish I had done that from the start as well
