LED running lights.
« on: July 04, 2017, 08:13:09 pm »
My latest farkle.
I wired it to use as DRL.
I didn't expect them to be so bright!   :o
Lights are Pilot Automotive PL-9733P.

Cheers. 

P.S I've fixed pictures as my Photobucket kicked the bucket  :)

What type of pattern do they have?
Fog, Driving, Flood, or spot?

Pilot used to make 3W LED Fog lights, I had on my C10 for a while, and they have a pretty nice pattern. I liked them a lot, but they were mounted on the tip-over bars (solid to engine mounts), and the engine vibrations killed them - the mounting points for the LEDs actually broke  :(

I really like them. Share how you mounted under the mirrors.

1. Remove mirrors.
2. Drill a 13/64 hole in each metal bracket (aim for the middle of the triangle) 
3. TAP 1/4-20 threads.
4. install mirrors back on the bike.
5. Install light brackets from below. Use Loctite for bolts.
6. Install lights.
7. Drill 1/4 inch hole on the side of mirror bracket cover (below the mirror) to feed leads through.
8. Wire lights the way you want to run the lights.
9. Adjust lights.
10. Enjoy!
 

P.S Thread size is up to you.
