    I installed Denali lights on my bike when I stop the lights go on but when I start to go they turn off. Before I tear it apart and ideas to help?

    That's strange.

    How and where are they wired in to your Trophy ?

    Maybe the installer picked up the power from the glove box feed!

    Yes, it sounds like a lack of power and the bulbs collapse. At least consume 1.6A * 2 = 3.2 amps.

    You should connect them on another line or better place a relay.
    Only motorcyclists know why dogs stick their head out the car window.

    What I'm referring to is that perhaps somehow the lights are fed, either directly or through a relay, from the glove box lock solenoid. That is the only accessible circuit I can think of that is bike motion dependant for power.

    Thanks for all the ideas. I Will check the wiring and find a better power source.

    Did you figure it out yet?
    Iím wiring up some Piaa fog lights and some driving lights.

    The wire under the storage box is where Iím going to hook up the small power wire that activates the relay so the only time I will be able to activate the lights is when the motor is running.
    There should be sufficient power to keep the relay tripped when running however if thereís not I can always run the relay wire straight to the battery with the positive side of the power wire and just make sure I donít turn the lights on without the motor running.
