    If I were to mount a set of lights, I'd go with Denali lights or PIAA.

    If it were me I'd order this mount: http://www.//index.php/products/triumph/166-ttse-light-bracket and a cheap set of lights from China on eBay.  However since you are in the UK even shipping on the mounts there would be over my budget for the job. :034:

    I've been thinking of using something like this:
    http://www.bikenation.co.uk/denali-led-lighting-universal-offset-mount-kit-denlah-00-10000
    And mounting it to the front, inside fairing screw positions to drop down vertically, then with the lights themselves on the outside of this bracket.
    But that's because I don't have any crash bars...

    Would like to see the full web address of whatever Rick505 was pointing to?
    Pacific Blue Trophy A1
    Honda Bros 650 (since import from Japan in '95)
    History (best of):
    KE125, CB250T, DT400, GS425, GS650G, XR200, CB900F2, FJ1200, K1200RS

    OOPS,  I didn't see the link wasn't posted correctly...I'm still having issues posting a link even using the Insert Hyperlink button.

    It's the Farkles by Maple site at:  maplefarkles dot com


    You might need to clock around but you should find it under Triumph stuff.

    Your links did the same thing as mine.  I even tried using Google to shorten the link and that failed.  Bitly to the rescue I hope!

    I used the MapleFarkles mounting kit to mount a pair of Clearwater Darla lights.  Using their slip-on yellow lenses, they are very visible at low setting (10%), and when I hit my high beams, they go to 100%, and are very bright.  Great quality as well - pricey, but I'd buy them again!
