Adding running lights/LED's
« on: March 08, 2014, 03:32:23 pm »
I am interested in adding additional running lights to my SE. I have seen the Clearwater Lights, the PIIA lights, and a few of the other ones. Not only do I want to be seen easier in the day but I also would like he lighting to aid my vision at night. Any suggestions on which ones will do both of these for me?

PIAA 1100LED are good looking, smaller than the others, quite bright during the day, very conspicuous, and very nicely fill out the road at night. I leave mine turned on day and night. They mount nicely to the front brake calipers. -Dr Ron

Thanks Dr. Ron. Did you order them direct from PIAA? What kind of mounting kit works? Is the mounting kit Trophy specific?

Actually, I ordered them through Amazon.com, found the best price among the many distributors listed there and my Triumph Mech just used what was in the box to mount them to the calipers....Easy-Peasy!  :018:  -Dr Ron

Hi Padman63
 
I had them made at a vehicle  livery manufactures in the UK. bluelitegraphis.com  who make  for fire engines ,police cars, emergency  vehicles etc so they are good quality ,I also have them on the rear, ignore the difference in colour just the camera flash :046:
