LED Aux. lighting

I did not find a post for recommendations on LED auxiliary light kits. I am interested in a kit I can mount to the Adventure crash guards. Small lamp assemblies, wiring, mounting brackets, the whole thing. Any suggestions for a small compact lamp? Some I have seen on other bikes are just too large. LED for the low current draw advantage.

Thanks

I don't mind the going and I don't mind the stopping. I absolutely hate the stop and going.

There are many, many threads on LED auxiliary lights, driving lights, etc:

2009 DL650A - sold

2005 DL650 - dearly departed

If you are in a shipwreck and all the boats are gone, a piano top buoyant enough to keep you afloat that comes along makes a fortuitous life preserver. But this is not to say that the best way to design a life preserver is in the form of a piano top.
I think we are clinging to a great many piano tops in accepting yesterday's fortuitous contrivings as constituting the only means for solving a given problem." - R. Buckminster Fuller

There are a heap of options on ebay this is just 1 12V 3000LM 30W Waterproof Cree T6 LED Driving Fog Spot Flood Light Lamp Off Road | eBay

I have just bought a set of SW Motech light mounts. I will be buying some kind of LED light to mount to them like the VisionX solstice or one of the ebay copys

One of the Ebay vendors offers a kit, WITH mounting hardware - which is good

"2allbuyer" - we aren't allowed to post links, but I think they've advertised here and advrider.

I got this kit:
2 12V 1600LM LED Light Suzuki V-Strom (etc)

These things are VERY bright, you need at least an off switch - which doesn't come with their kit, but the mounts were good. 3000lm may be excessive

I pulled them apart and checked the innards, spread the heatsink paste under the LED's a bit and added more where the metal carrier meets the case, but they were adequate as-is. I suspect they'll all be similar as far as build quality goes.

I wil look into all these. Most I have found mount to a bracket under the fairing at the head lights.

I don't mind the going and I don't mind the stopping. I absolutely hate the stop and going.

I have decided on the lights I will be fitting to my SW motech brackets and have contacted the manufacturer in China to buy 50 of them. I will keep 2 or 4 and sell the rest off on ebay. This is them they are a 10 watt cree LED and are selling for $185 a pair on ebay and I will be looking at selling them at $155+ post if I can do a deal with the manufacturer.
