Accessory Lights

Just tryin to see who has them, where they have them, and where they put the switches to trn them on and off. I just did some today but it started raining so no pics. I put my switch on top of the right cover, it gets covered by my leg while riding. Anyways, post up pics!

I have the OEM and I hocked them up to the power source there by the head light. Mine come with a switch on the left light to turn them on or off. Mine came with a little relay. Everyone loves the way they look and they make a huge difference in the dark.

Thats my setup. I want to add more under the rear fender. I have it wired stright to the battery so I can turn it on/off at will with no need to put the key in. The only thing is, when I put the key in and turn it the headlight won't come on. Not until I turn the bike on. The lights only draw 20amp so I keep my headlight on low. It is on its own circuit (besides the battery of course)

Sorry for the crap pics but I only had my MyTouch for a camera.

the headlight isn't supposed to come on until you start the engine.

another thing you can do is go to Radio shack and get a much smaller switch for just a few bucks and actually put it inside that side cover, all you have to do is drill a small hole in it for the switch to poke through the front side closest to the engine. once i get mine back from the shop i'll take a picture of my side cover that has my switch and a button for my garage door opener.

Here are three pics of my bike. Lights in the front wheel, back wheel, under the tank, and ground effects. The switch is under the tank at the back where the seat meets the tank. I love em and the bike gets noticed

I had the option to buy in other colors but I only wanted blue. They are all LED and I've left it on over night without a problem! That was a welcome discovery.

I live in Indiana and I built the kit myself. from a guy who sells the kits. He didnt have what I wanted so he let me pick and choose and sold me everything to do the work for about $200
