looking for light bar

I have a 2009 classic LT 900 that I want to put a light bar on. Have looked at Kawasaki, Cobras and Kuryakan (sic). Looking for recommendations on these or any other brands.

Jimbo, I can't seem to find a way to buy from Cobra online. They refer me to a delar listing , and the nearest one is 100 miles away in NY. (No dealers in western Mass). How did yo get yours?

You can get a Cobra from any decent dealer, or check EBay. They seem to be cheapest on there. Also any catalog source will carry them.

Found on e bay at GM Cycles for $235 w/ free shipping. Thanks. Dealer wanted $350 plus $70 installation and tax. I bought and will install myself. Read directions. Seems simple.

I had my dealer install the OE light bar on my LT a year ago right when I got the bike.
I have bought stuff like my Mustang seat at Dennis Kirk and I don't think you will beat their prices on anything. Try them out !!

Just be sure when the light bar is installed it is powered off an accessory circuit instead of off the head light. It can be relayed off the head light to come on and off with the light but if powered off the headlight can easily overload the 10 amp circuit.

Yes it is fairly simple, I was even able to do it myself...Ha Ha. I got mine through [email protected] for $208. The only thing I found different from their instructions was they said to connect the power wire to the wire in the headlight that is Red with Blue tracer, but on my bike it was actually a White with Blue tracer wire. Don't know if you will find the same thing when you go to do yours, but just thought I'd mention it. Good Luck. And by the way, it reallly looks nice and it really makes a big difference in lighting up the road at night (the main reason I got it).
