Motolights installed
« on: June 28, 2013, 10:15:52 PM »
I installed the caliper mounted Motolights.  Fairly easy install.  I've had this set on three Triumphs now.  They're 35w projector beams.  VERY visible to oncoming traffic.

They look really good. I have looking for some auxiliary lights and wondering where best to mount them.

Where did you get them from? Are they independently switched or come on with the ignition?

They are made by Motolight.

They are switchable.  I mounted the switch on the left hand side, next to the locking compartment.  They are a bit pricey , but support from them is terrific.  They sent me a whole new harness last year when the fuse corroded.

Thanks!

I see what you mean about pricy but they look good and you get what you pay for generally!

I will investigate if they ship to the UK or have a dealer over here.

Pricey is right :156: but still they look effective.  Couple of questions 1) what kind of drain on the charging system? 2) Mounted that low is there a danger of rocks, gravel, road debris, etc hitting the lights?  How rugged are they.  I see the picture going through water.

As far as the draw on the charging system, it's not very high from what I recall reading.  I just make sure the lights are switched off before I start the bike.  Never had any problems on the last two bikes (a Rocket III and a Tiger 800XC).
You might think that having them mounted that low, they'd be prone to damage.  Not so far.  I've had this very set for four years, on three different bikes.  I ride in all kinds of conditions and they hold up very well.  Rugged.

I should imagine that low it provides a very good fan of light along the ground

Expensive but nice. I you had told me a set of lights placed towards the bottom of the bike would a. look good  and b. be practical I would have laughed at you. These do stand out though.
