Pelonmelon, I use to run a set of LEDs like that on my DL1000. I made a mount so that it was above the headlight. The mount bolted into the bolts that hold on the part of the cowling holding the windshield. These 4 bolts were easy to access once the windshield was off. Then for added stability I put 'swing away' legs under the mount. I removed the tupperware in the wheel well. I put speed nuts in where two of the rivets were, put all the tupperware back on, and then bolted the bottom of the swing away legs into those nuts. The legs for the LED light mount had to swing out of the way or the tupperware in the wheel well could never come off. So rather than mount yours below the headlight, consider just above it.Wandering through Harbor Freight and saw this 8 inch Flood/Spot combo light and was wondered if anyone has tried mounting one of these right below the stock headlight?
Yes, I do have a fork brace and wondered if clearance would be an issue. Thanks for the info and advice.I would be conserned about how much clearance there is, during a full fork compression. Do you have a fork brace fitted on your K9 Wee or the forks raised in the triple tree / yokes? Perhaps a single row LED light strip may be more suited idepending on the clearance that you have to work with.
Thanks, Rick. I'll check them out.What Gert Said!
There is not room under the headlight. Crunch, damage, etc. I have looked at it and talked about it a lot.
However, ... as you move forward the arc of the fender starts to move away from the horizontal line of the bottom of the headlights. You might be able to put a thinner light along the front edge under the headlight.
Or just use one of our light and light bar kits.
Advantage to fork mount is light is always aimed direction of travel.I would the strongly recommend mounting pod lights to the forks. The 2 main reasons are safety and legality.
