Any suggestions for mounting the lights? Looks like the rep is leaning toward an engine guard mount solution. Thoughts?
My thoughts are, don't bother with them.
They will provide you with some extra illumination; not only for you to see with, but for other drivers to see you.
However, they will eventually break. Either from the "never escaping" vibrations that occur during normal riding, and added vibrations while riding rough roads, and more importantly WHEN you drop your bike.
I had one set that I mounted to a custom light bar that I built. The light bar held up, but the PIAA lights did not. Two separate incidents; I first broke the left one, (hit a deer and went down), then broke the right one, (cold tires, cold pavement, took a turn too "hot", and went down. My fault.)
The second set were mounted INSIDE 4" diameter steel well casing sections(!), that I welded to my crashbars. They still didn't hold up.
I got tired of buying them, and the "cool look" that they exuded wore off. I don't use any driving lights anymore.
Save your money, and the meager electrical output of your bike for more important gear.
That's my opinion and thoughts.
Here is a smashed PIAA driving light that was mounted to a SW-Motech crashbar. This was the result of hitting a deer.
The right light broke 10 days later when I laid the bike down.
Here I am cutting the well casing housings off of my crashbars in the spring of 2010.
In 2012? One very lean machine with not a lot of extras and can withstand the rough New England roads. And, some of Canada too!
