    Yay, I've finally got around to fitting the lights the wife bought me for Christmas, Purchased a "Fuzeblock" and ran the wiring via the bike's switched circuit, taking a live feed from the cable for the top box, for the lamps, with a fused feed from the battery to power the relay.
    With the replacement disc fitted and new pads all around, a good clean, today has felt like a good productive day, looking forward to a ride out tomorrow  :001:

    They look great, well done.
    My mother asked what I wanted to be when I grew up. I said "a biker". She said I'd have to choose one or the other.

    Thanks all, took a while to get around to fit onto the bike, due to our rubbish winter here in the uk, but looks great, at the end of the flex from the lamps, I fitted a small male waterproof plug, the other end a female waterproof socket to ease removal if needed, save's pulling all the cable back through the bike, power was taken from the top box electrical feed, and from the positive terminal on the battery via an inline fuse to a "Fuzeblock.....Trade name" under the seat, to the terminals within.
    I didn't fit the switch that was supplied as it was useless, but the whole lot is wired so when the ignition is off the lamps are off. I'm happy with the outcome.

     I have yet to try them in the dark, but I'm guessing they will be good, I have angled them downwards so hopefully they don't dazzle oncoming traffic, but as an extra, can you see me now scenario.

    Great job! I am anxious to hear how they work.

    Hi Ghostrider, they work great, but like I said in my earlier post. I haven't been on the bike in the dark yet with them, and with this stupid British weather, that the weather forecasters are reporting it as sever weather, a little bit of snow and a couple of degrees below freezing  :112:, hardly artic weather, but still, the bike isn't going out at night yet.
