    Those look like the same aux lights I fitted although I only fitted the 2 and under the headlight. I did consider the mirror pods as a place to attach them but I thought the exposed wire at the back would annoy me.

    I have used Bikevis with good results.

    I have a red bullet on each side of my top box, and white ones under each mirror/indicator pod.

    I also have the Rigid Industries spot lights that they sell. These were mounted on my K1200RS and are awesome. I have not yet mounted them on the TT, but the TT lights are so much better than the K12 anyway - I also installed one of their HID conversions to the K12.

    i have their aux running lights fitted under the mirror housings. Small hole then linked up to the centre light wiring. Work really well as extra lights to be seen with. 2 led units. Not good for night time extra lights but good for other people to see me.

    I have Clearwater Darlas mounted on my crash bars. At 10-15% power they are great for being seen during the day. At 100% at night they are great for seeing tomorrow.

    Getting them on the crash bars, or, more specifically, getting the wires to the crash bars in such a way that they don't melt and the lights can be (somewhat) easily removed so I can remove the bars is a little bit of work, but worth it in my opinion.

    I got the Superbrights in 45 degree spread and used a spare set of fork reflector brackets from my Kawa ZZR1200 to mount using the large caliper bolt. I just had to make one hole larger on the brackets. Added the optional relay behind the right mirror, triggered by the middle running light . Super secure and nice low mount for a definitive triangle of light. Very happy with the output, better than my car.  :821:

    Anyone got a wiring diagram for the best place to take a live off the head lights & how to get to it. Fitting Denali DM spots/daytime lights in the space under the headlights. Cheers PJT27
