Hello Gents and gentetts!

Looking for some wisdom on installing these Hella 55w halogen auxiliary lights. They are only the lights w/ the two wires coming out the back. No relay, fuses, nothing. How do I go about to properly wire these two lights in, in respect to my stator capacity and possibly anything else that I could mess up? :D The specs on the lights are Hella Optilux 1250 model 12v/55w. If it matters, they are going on my Vee.
Thank you

The best way is via an auxillary fuse panel with switched power (recomend Eastern Beaver as they have a plug n' play one for the V-strom)... Next, If you are going to want to switch them on and off, you'll need a relay if you are using a standard 5amp handlebar switch... If you use a toggle switch rated > than 10amps, then you can use that without the relay set up... You may also want to goggle wiring diagrams to help you more understand how all this works...

Installing a pair of 55W lights without a relay is a very bad idea, period.
Switch choice is irrelevant. Spring for the $5.00 relay.
