No markings on the lights or bracket. Was on my bike when I bought it. Removed temporarily because the accessory wiring in the bike was not the way I would have preferred. Looking for specs on whatever these are.

My thought is to modify bracket to tuck them under fairing.

I'd also suggest keeping them as far apart as possible for better spread of the light. Left one aimed straight. Right on aimed slightly off center to the right to illuminate the critters eyeballs on the side of the road.

Amazon also sells nice fused/relayed wiring harness's for $13.00. They have waterproof connectors and momentary and/or rocker on/off switch. Makes for a professional job once complete.

This also keeps the aftermarket wiring separate and protected front he bikes wiring harness. If some thing were to happen and the lights go Chernobyl there will be no ill effect to the bikes electricals. Between the fuse and relay the bike is protected.

I had purchased some very close to that same design on Ebay. I tried several pairs because they kept getting moisture
inside the lenses. The vendor on Ebay sent me 2 pairs to cover the damage but both pairs leaked and stopped working
within 3 months.

When I purchased the LEDs I currently have on my Vstrom 650 I got them from Yitamotor on Ebay.

These are really good lights and they last. Not expensive either. See pics :

They look similiar to those, but are not a stud mount from the led. Looks like I can tuck them under the fairing and still have room to rotate them a bit. Need to get some shorter mounting hardware and cut the ends off the. bracket

You could mount them on the back of the bike and keep people from getting too close?
I had a huge flood light up high on the back of my jeep for setting up campsites when camping at night. When someone had their high beams on blinding me from behind I hit the switch and shared the experience with the guy and he quickly lowered his headlights.
In fact, that gives me an idea for the Wee. I haven't done anything to make the biker uglier, as one fellow always chides me, in a long time.

LOL, I don't think I need backup lights and if people are too close I've got a throttle.

Got the bracket cut down, waiting for the paint to dry. I've got almost everything I need laying around (weatherpak connectors, relay, terminals) will just need to order up a handlebar switch. The one that was on the bike didn't work when I bought it. Didn't seem to be weatherproof.

As long as the guy behind you isn't a LEO. :wink2:

It would be even more interesting if he was listening to the song "Blinded by the light "

" if people are too close I've got a throttle."

Not at a stop light

"As long as the guy behind you isn't a LEO."

ThaT'S FUNNY. I got pulled over because I was blasting the cop in front of me with some H4's in my CJ6 that were a 75/130 watt combo and the low beam had burned out.
So I was scorching the paint with the 130 watt high beam. If he hadn't gotten a more important call he'd have written a fix it ticket.
i got new 55/60 bulbs the next day.

At a stop light, what do I care how close they are? Most of my riding miles are commuting in downtown traffic. Bumper to bumper is normal.
