    Front LED Running Lights (picts)

    I had a set of mondo moto LED lights on my Concours and really like them for the visibility to other drivers. 

    http://mondomotos.com/MM10

    I mounted a set on my TTSE yesterday on the forks, but was too hot on having to use standoffs when mounting using the fender attachment points.  The standoff (abs) seemed to have some play.  Probably because the 5mm bolt was not tight in the standoff as the standoff had a larger ID then the bolt. 

    Anyways, I went down to fabricate a better bracket when I noticed the inside cowl screws between the headlight and fenders.....seems like a decent mounting spot.  They seem to be solid.  Could not get a decent, lights on picture, because the lights just washed out the picture at night.  I will get a picture with lights on the day light tomorrow.

    I saw a posting on here with some rectangular LED lights in the same location, but thought I would share the mondo moto install look.

    Here were the fork mounts and then the move up.

    I think I like the 2nd mounting location up high, but the lower lights may make the bike more visible.  Here are some daytime shots.

     I went for under the headlight for now - maybe not as visual to others but lots of added light for me - plus I was a bit concerned of the side mount for height... I like how inconspicuous they are inside there when off - 

    Amazing what those tiny LEDs can do now...

    I have the same lights but mounted on the fender bolt with an offset bar. I do think the lower location makes a better triangle of light for better oncoming visibility. Great little lights that consume very little power!

     What did you use as an offset bar? I found that by using a nylon spacer and a 40 mm cap screw that there was play when the light was mounted. Not a tremendous amount but enough to bother me.  At first I thought it was a nylon spacer but it might be that tiny diameter 5 mm mounting bolt too.

     I did find some brackets on eBay but they're pretty big and I like it being somewhat inconspicuous.

    I think I would agree but I have an amount to lower it is better for oncoming visibility.

    I had a couple of solid aluminum spacers from a set of PIAA lights I had 10 years ago. I also used a star washer to get some bite into the plastic around the bolt hole. They hold their position well.

    I have the same lights and had them on my concours.



    I wanted them to create more width for conspicuity so I bought the adventure bars just to have a place to mount them.



    I also have the Skenedesign run/turn lights on the front as well.
