GBYII, if you go buy the forum name connieklr; I sent you a pm.

I do, and received your note.  No apologies necessary.
Well, perhaps one minor thing. Buy me a beer the next time we meet. I'm a cheap date.    :D

Have fun.

Guy


I can vouch for that!!

Ride safe, Ted

For those that are interested, here are the Snarf mounts on my 86 with some high power LED driving lights (off Amazon for pretty cheap here: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B009SAAK7G/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B009SAAK7G&linkCode=as2&tag=theborkeduniv-20 )

Haven't tried it all at night yet, but it certainly helps with visibility during the day.  Currently using the Murph's headlight wiring harness as well.

How are the LEDs holding up.  I like the look of them.  Shopping around for lights and came across your post.

They continue to work fine.  Took them on a 1k trip and never had an issue, as well as daily driving (until the bike had unrelated electrical issues).  Looks like they are cheaper now on Amazon then when I bought them.  Takes a while to ship from China but the shipping is free.  One footnote however:  these lights will give more of a flood pattern verses a pencil beam.  If you want it to reach down the road more, go for the 15 degree ones.  The units I got are 30 degree.

Take a look at the "Cree LED Motorcycle Lights".
They are super bright and cause virtually "0" draw on the system.
They are about $120-$150.
I have mine mounted to the tip over bars and seperately fused to stay on when the bike is running.
Great awareness lights and a dispersed pattern (flood)

Yeah, the ones I got use a CREE cartridge.  Paid about $30 each for them...

I bought four of these LED lights for my John Deere tractor and they do light up the driveway.  I am thinking of using these for my C10.
