I'm thinking about purchasing some Denali lights for the new Strom. I have Givi crash bars, and thought I might mount them to them.
Does anyone have any suggestions on which ones to buy? Are there better mounting options? Where do I mount the switch, and where is the best place to wire off of?
Any suggestions, pictures, or other ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Denallis are plug and play, the come with their own wiring harness and switch. They are extremely high quality and the relay harness is one of the best I have ever seen. Twisted throttle sells the switch mount fot the handlebar clamp as well as the crash bar mounts. I have 2 DM's clustered together on each side of the crash bars for low road illumination and DRL's. My long range lights are Baja Design squadrons.

Twisted Throttle $478. That's just absurd. They are so overpriced.

Install a switched fuse block under your seat to connect to, attach whatever lights you want to the front of your Givi bars. You can create a bracket to hold them forward very easily from a small piece of painted aluminum. I went with two Cree lights that cost $30/pair. A wiring harness is very easy to make yourself, it is a fun project.

Would you be able to post a night time shot with the light from those Crees down the road? I have been wanting to add something like that to the bike but have not seen how much lighting they can add.

I never ride at night, so wasn't too concerned with road lighting capability, I only want them for visibility to other motorists, the lighting triangle effect, and I have been told many times they are very visible from a distance. I didn't bother with a switch to turn them off either, I could not think of a time I would actually turn them off, so they come on/off with the bike.

I like the D4s, but they are just so big. I was leaning toward the D2s. I like the fact that they have 2 power settings. That way I can leave them on low for anytime driving. The DMs are also cool, just not sure if they have enough light output.

I thought the Denali's were to spendy for my needs so I went with MondoMotos light kit. I bought mine at a rally for $100. Since then, they have an optional dimmer module. These are plug and play with high quality waterproof connectors. I mounted my lights to the front forks so they are always pointed where I am aiming. Good conspicuity and insurance against those pesky Ohio deer.

$20 Cree from Amazon. I run 'em all the time, day and night. Aligned with my low beams. Not D.O.T approved but no issues with the law and other motorists.

Are these spots or floods? Just wondering if you can aim them or if they're just bright however they're aimed.

I'm thinking about same thing. I believe you buy the vertical perch mount. And use the left mirror bolt. Where are you planning on mounting the lights?

Looks great. I think I've made up my mind. H4 Denali with mount kit from twisted throttle.
2stroke....i was leaning toward the D4 also but i kind of like the D2 because of the hi-lo beam option which you dont have on the D4. cant make up my mind :confused:

I know. I'm driving myself crazy thinking about it. The D2 is kinda pricey, and I like the idea of having flood and spots in the same light, with D4s. Plus it Looks to be retina burning. Lol
