if you just want more conspicuity and not worried about actual forward lighting, then you will like the whelen tir3 lights.  i have an amber and white pair on my bike and they work very nicely.  ive seen my bike from distance while driving and it caught my eye instantly.

if you search the forum you should be able to find my posts where i put up pics.  my internet is sucky, otherwise i would find the link for you...

^ I'm wanting to mount fog lights there. Looks good JR.  :great:

The Denali D2 LED lights come with an optional fog lense .... easy to swap.

He sells lenses and affordable lights.  He also sells nice dimmers and has great reviews on the ADV forum.

Thanks.  Just received the Mondomotos MM10 kit yesterday and will more than likely be installing them tomorrow, Wednesday, 10/17.  Will let you all know how it goes.   ;D

Ok all, got my MM10 light kit installed today on the reflector brackets.  Nice spot.  I also fabricated a switch mount myself out of a piece of 1" aluminum from Lowes, found spacers, and M6 x 1.0 - 40mm hex head black bolts.  Mounted the switch on the right handlebar side (pics to come).  The bolts were a bit too long so I screwed each bolt all the way into an M6 die, cut about an 1/8" off, and then backed the bolt out of the tap to clean up the threads.  Worked like a charm.

Can those that have these lights let me know how you went about aiming them?  What was the procedure you used?  Thanks for the input.  Cleaning up now but will take some pics and post them shortly.  Thanks in advance.

Here are some pic's of the install....came out pretty well..



and here are some pics of the switch mount I made.  Not bad.





Couple more....





Let me know what you think.  Thanks.

I have both Mondo and ADVMonster on my bike.  The Mondo lights are useless.  Strictly DRL.  ADVMonster 60's turn night into day.
