aux lighting switch
 
I am going to mount some Kolpin or Rigid lights to the F8. I'd love to see some switch mounting solution pictures.

nice installation, also worth a discussion that I haven't seen is, Rigid led's... are you running spots or floods? Why?

Get an A7 parasitic switch. Use your existing switch to turn of your aux lights. See at mountain motorrad.ca. They have them. I have it ant it's great

I couldn't find this parasitic switch to see what it's all about but there at great options here. is anyone using the switch that comes with the Rigids?
funny that you can get a nice$10 bar mount switch from Tusk or pay $30 for one from Highway

Care to describe your setup? I saw the "key attachment" but the description is a bit lax on their web page... Arrows, pictures, etc. would be much appreciated!

I have used the same switch mounting position on my bike, except I used a round non-illuminated water proof switch (personal choice). Fits perfectly there if you measure it right, and the wires poke up underneath nicely.

I only installed my Rigid DUALLY's a week ago, with the spot option. I used the bike coming home from work at 1am this morning. Amazing beam length, which I have only had before on a 4WD with Xenon driving lights. The lights paid for themselves this morning when I got to see a few kangaroos jumping out onto the road in front of me, so I had time to jump on the brakes instead of plowing into them. :clap:clap:clap

so if i get the spot versions of the lights will I see kangaroos even though I live in California.

Any other thoughts or reason to choose floods?

With either halogen or hid , the stock has a good flood pattern..... The led foods would mirror that...... Apps will enhance the light pattern
