2008 DL650 Aux Light Bracket

New to stormtrooper and this is my fist post. Recently purchased a 2008 DL650. I'll use it mostly for cruising and occasionally for light touring around the Colorado mountains. I don't have much interest in going off of the asphalt so I won't be putting on crash bars, skid plates etc.

However, I'd like to get on some auxiliary lights so more visible to other vehicles. My previous bike had some PIAA lights on a bracket. Not finding many light bracket choices. I see one on e-bay from the UK called something like Denali Aux Light Mount Bar

Is anyone using this bracket ?

Any other suggestions for a bracket ?

Any home made bracket designs ?

Remember, I won't have crash bars so that style of aux light attachment won't be available.

Thanks
RockiesRider

Thanks for that web link. Very much what I'm looking for in an Aux light bracket. Lots of other goodies at that web site.

I like these, and I mounted mine down low on the forks - no more bracketry needed.

That is the bracket I have. I got some cheap led lights off ebay and powered through the heated grip circuit.


If you don't already know , there is a hidden, fused, and keyed power socket available in the front. (it is there for the oem heated grips to plug into)

it needs a correct plug to match and get power, you can get an adaptor.

I think I got my plugin adaptor from eastern beaver.

This is the bracket I have and I have ADV Monster lights. I've been offroad for 1000's of miles and the bracket and lights (after I installed the HD brackets for the ADV monster lights) have held up very well.

Do you have more info on this?
This is exactly what I need for my USB charging port.

Use the google search box and search for: heated grip connector. There are many threads about where that connector is located for the various models.
