If indeed you has two left, I'll take the last one. If not, it's not a problem.

All brackets are ready to ship.

Sorry for the delay. I think all the brackets I made are spoken for, 13 sets with bolts is what I ended up with. They came out really nice, better as I went along. Sending out PM to all that sent me a PM wanting a set. If you have and do not hear from me today then send me another please. Final price is slightly less then I estimated. Shipping was a little less then my estimate. Delivered price with 4 longer bolts is $46 Paypal Friend.  If you get them and do not think they are worth it I will be happy to refund your money.

If anyone back out or if I have extra I will post it.

Thanks

Couple of instructions to note:.

The attach bracket on the back of the fork casting (part the fairing threads into) is aluminum. Start the bolts by hand they are easy to cross thread. Use blue (med) loctite in the bolts.
Other then that they are straight forward but if you have any questions email me or call me. All PM's going out have my info.  Please let me know how they work.

Thanks, Lee

I would jump on the two remaining sets since no telling if they are coming around again.

What torque value do you suggest for the mounting bolts?

Tracking shows that mine arrive today.  So no torque values for the mounting bolts?  Just good and tight?

Your nice instructions shipped with the brackets explained the bolts. Tighten to specs and use locktite. To me that will be good and tight.

Got my brackets today, MIGHT get them installed tomorrow (probably not).

For those that have extra LED lights on their bike, relay or direct wire?

I did my lights direct to my fuse block. Needed an on off switch that my state inspection seems to require. Mondo motor provided a complete kit including the water proof switch.

The lights I used 10W do not require a relay. I picked up power off of the connector on the left side in front of the Glove box (2012). Ran it thru a "marine" waterproof switch so I can turn them off if I wanted. I really never turn them off. If I did it again I would just locate the switch kind of hidden somewhere near the glove box for the rare time I turned them off. I put mine in the "panel" and is a waste.

I could not fine a torque value in the book on the 2 bolts for the fairing. Nice and tight but do not over do it.

I installed the light brackets yesterday.  They are exactly as Lee described, if not better.  The lights and the lower fork assembly are now one solid unit.  There is virtually no flex, and they look like they came from the factory.  Nice job Lee!   :beerchug: :great:

I installed mine.  The brackets work great, I recommend it!  I like this location for the lights, does not detract from looks of the bike.

I have some extras if anyone else decides they would like a set.

Guys, you absolutely HAVE to buy these---don't waste money on the denials or anything else, these are incredible. I've been using them with the exact same lights he has, and it's a fantastic setup... Well done!
