    trophy4me. Look at page 10 in this section for SAAZ's post on mounting Clearwater Ericas under the rear view mirrors. I have mounted LED Rider LX5's in the same way, under the mirrors. Very stable, and they look great. I have also got smaller LED's mounted on the front mudguard as well. You should be able to see them in my avatar shot. Cheers. :158:

    I've fitted some - I'll try and get some Photo's at the weekend,
    but you can see them here :

    Pair LED Motorcycle Custom Daylight Running Lights Black with Bracket
    ( Sold by "M & P Direct" ).

    They are "E" Marked ( unlike many Chinese Imports )
    and are very reasonably priced at 24.99 delivered.

    I fitted them by drilling a hole in each of the side infill panels above the front wheel
    and using a short bolt, washers and a nyloc nut to secure them with the supplied brackets.

    I drilled a second Small hole to pass the wires through to the inside,
    where I trimmed the length of the wire down and fitted in line connectors
    that can be easily unplugged wherever those side panels need to be removed -
    the connections being protected from rain etc by being sandwiched
    between the side panel and the main fairing.

    You could connect them up by splicing into the main Lighting wires,
    but as I already have a separate "Fuzeblock" I used an Ignition switched supply
    via an extra handlebar switch so I can switch them off at Night -
    when they might actually be TOO bright !

    Nice going. I would like to see a picture of them installed on the bike.

    Coconut, got to disagree with you on "too bright at night". Nothing is too bright for night riding. My riding friend [also a FarRider and IBA member] has 2 pairs of Clearwater Ericas fitted to his BMW 1200RT. You think your's might be bright at night, you want to have Michael behind you. With all the night riding we do, good [really] good lights are important with all our nocturnal wildlife. Last weekend we left Melbourne at 4am. for a 1000 kilometre ride to Wollongong [NSW] for a friends birthday. Out of Melbourne the roos [kangaroos] were showing their faces to us. With our lighting upgrades it made the night stage easy. :001: :001:

    I fitted day lights under the mirror housing parts of the fairing. Not useful for night riding but bloody good for dozy day time cages. Fitted high output bulbs for night riding which I do a lot of due to my work. Mostly to avoid the deer, monkjacs and badgers!!!!! Have had different loan bikes over the last month as mine has been into the garage for a oil fault. Have to say the trophy has the best lights out of all the models I've blagged out of the dealer. Still, sorely tempted with a bobber for summer run abouts!!!

    Re the "Too bright at night" thing - if they dazzle oncoming motorists,
    and cannot be switched off to prevent this,
    then they create a hazard and would be illegal in the UK.

    These are designed to be seen, in daylight, and not to see with, unlike the Main Beam.

    I have the option of using them at Night -
    just like I have the Option of using Main Beam,
    but can switch them off with the handlebar switch  :169:
