We had a very successful stealth launch of our Gen 1 V-Strom auxiliary light kit and it is now time to go public. Several owners have tried the kit and love it. It's designed to be very easy even for those who think they are electrically challenged.

The $150 kit includes

A pair of Genuine Cree 10 Watt LED lights with Euro Lens (possibly the best compromise between spot and flood).
Full wiring harness including relay and on/off switch
Solid one piece under the cowl light bar (Gen 1 V-Strom only, Vee1 and Wee1)

We have kits in stock ready to go.

The parts can be purchased separately as well. Although I don't recommend them, for example the wiring harness and light bar can be used with the inexpensive amazon.com LEDs. Ours lights appear to be a full order of magnitude (10 times) brighter than the amazon.com lights, but if you already have them our light bar and wiring harness will help you get them on your bike.

Separate prices:

Light bar - $25
Wiring harness - $25 each

PM me for purchase.

Good Morning Rick,

I was looking for your kit on the web site but no information on it. I have the 2012 DL1000 I would like to see more info on the light kit and also the 2+ break lines?

l will get some better pictures shortly, but here is what I have.

The wiring harness...



The wiring harness can be used with the supplied switch or as an option can be wired to automatically turn on with the bike's existing high beams.

The following pictures show the lights and a light bar before powder coating. The light bar comes black. It's milled from a single piece of 3/16" thick solid aluminum. It's quite robust.





This is a picture showing where the light bar mounts behind the nose cowl. the supplied clip nuts are installed on existing tangs.

stripped

That's a pretty interesting picture. I have never seen on stripped down like that.
Well - the first time ever I took off the front Tupperware I was unsure about what was going on - so I took it ALL off. After all, the blue Tupperware that came off was going on to my then-silver ABS-model bike. I did a plastics swap band fuel tank swap (since it is painted) between the ABS and non-ABS bikes. Then I sold the non-ABS bike.

I've had mine for a few months. Easy install and well thought out. The bracket is sturdy, and the extra light really helps spot deer at night!

Awesome. Now I know where my lights are coming from... Next year I hope. More than maxed-out this year's accessory budget already :)

I must say Rick, your stuff is great. Couldn't be happier with my GPS mount and fork brace. Quality!

The above is a quick over view of our wiring harness designed for LED lights. It includes a 12V 40 amp relay, switch, fuse holder, and necessary wiring.

This kit makes installing auxiliary lights much simpler.

Videos of the Gen 1 Strom light bar (for Wee and Vee) and installation of the wiring harness on my Vee2 are forthcoming.

LED Lights

Great work, that looks like a quality wiring harness. I'm looking forward to the video on the lights, light bar and installation.

What are your thoughts on sourcing a quality, low cost LED dimmer to be sold optionally with the lights. I like the idea of having the lights run on reduced brightness during the day for visibility but then going full brightness with the high beam.

After much consternation and staring at the bike I had a little epiphany. Will be making mock ups for a Glee light bar this week end. Should function much like the V2 light bar in pictures at the top of this thread.

Keep your fingers crossed.
