2012 to 2016 DL650 Light Bar

This is a subject I gave up on maybe right when I succeeded and didn't recognize success.

I had worked out a light bar for the 2012+ DL650 and sent it out to a beta tester. He loved it. I didn't. I had it in my mind that teh lights needed to go above the bar. Instead he hung them beneath teh bar. It sounds silly now, but I just assumed everyone would want the lights on top so I didn't make the lightbar. Years go by and the beta tester emails me and asks why I haven't made them yet. Expresses how much he loves the light bar etc. I mean to get back to him, but time goes by. Eventually hard core off road riding takes its toll and the light bar is broken. The beta tester calls and asks if I would make him a new one. He said he had looked at the other offerings, did not like them, and wanted another just like the beta version.

Ok at this point I'm thinking he really likes the light bar and maybe I should go ahead and offer it. So I'm going to dust off the CNC files and give it a go. Will update here.
Also, one of the things he liked with lights below the bar was the large triangular light foot print without affecting turn signal visibility.

Everyone else can find light bars, lights, and wiring harnesses here. http://www.adventuretech.biz/suzuki-...-lighting.html

Can't wait to see it! I've been looking for a good mounting solution for my 2015.

Heck, I'm just interested in what it looks like.

I wish I had pictures, but unfortunately neither I nor the original beta tester kept them.

I was able to locate the CNC files. Now I need to find the jig and make a production run. I expect to have an improved version easily in the next few days.

I ran a batch of Glee (Wee2) light bars today. Will be listed them on our site with pictures as soon as I get some pictures back from our beta tester.

I went ahead and listed the Glee light bars on our website as a package deal. Light bar, our VERY bright 1100 lumen VERY robust 10 watt LED lights, and our very easy to install wiring harness designed for V-Stroms all for $162.00.

Look toward the bottom of the page.

Are you going to eventually offer the light bar by itself?
