Aux Lighting Brackets and Mounting Points
« on: May 30, 2015, 09:42:04 pm »
Seeking the wisdom of the list. I p/u my bike late next week and not having had an opportunity to see a TT naked I am looking for coaching on Aux lighting brackets and or suggested mounting points for custom bracket fabrication. Photos and links would be appreciated.

I will be mounting lights for daytime visibility as well as some lights that throw serious light down the road. Any and all coaching is appreciated.

Thanks

Studley

I have 2" LED lights from Superbrightleds.com mounted to the lower front fender bolt. Work great and they only draw 6W each

Did you buy the harness from them also?  What about the mounting brackets?

When you take a curve, and do against handlebars, you iluminaras the sky just when most needed it does illuminate the road

I think you may have to modify expectations if you believe those lights are going to illuminate anything down the road, curve or not. IMO those are "be seen" lights not driving lights.

Hi all,
just reactivating this topic to share with you a 2014 press release (sorry, it's in French) where it shows, based on some studies made by a Governmental Institute (we have many here...  :002:) called IFSTTAR, that for bikes, vertical light signature is better than horizontal : http://www.lequipement.fr/info/834/Securite-et-visibilite-des-deux-roues-etude-AVIMOTO

My personal conclusion is that I'd better fit my fog lights on the fork lower fender bolt.
They say also that increasing number of cars with on-board daylights does not help in bikes identification in the traffic..
Cheers, Hugues
