Do any of you guys know whats the wattage and ampage that the constellation driving light consume ?

http://www.kuryakyn.com/Products/643/Constellation-Driving-Light-Bar

right now i have a set of rumble road ultra thats 100 Watts Peak Power (70 RMS/Continuous) Per Speaker into 4 Ohms @ 13.6 VDC with High-Gain Input; Total System Rating: 200 Watts Peak Power, 140 Continuous.

bike runs fine riding everyday and start right up. tested with meter and votage was stable about 12v to 14v depends the break lights and signal lights.

I will run an individual wiring with switch and should be off day time.

Thanks for the help guys.

Evodog, maybe Kuryakyn can answer that question. I would think they should have specs for the lights. E-mail them and see what they say.

Running lights

I would suggest looking into LED type. Draws little power. Here is one link.
I am sure there are many types available. Good luck.

That is a good idea, i could just change the H-3 bulbs to L.E.D
I found some 68 SMD LED with color temp 6000k. looks pretty good i think.

i have did a reaserch just now on LED vs Halogen.
most analysis said LED are most for the look. not really use for fog lights or driving lights.

this is sucks.......any other bulb are bright but draw less power than regular halogen bulb ? Its H-3 housing.
