Lighting question.
 
Anyone run auxillary lights with safari tanks and high fender? Just curious what fits and works well. I have a euro headlight with h.i.d. but I would like more light to the side and to fill in the gaps.

High Fender-friendly aux lighting
 
Here's my solution to added light with a high-fender modification (with SW-Motech high crash guards) Mounted with extension plate mounted to bottom of front subframe/instrument bracket. Granted these aren't Safari tanks but they ought to fit

Hella FF-75s, metal-reflector & glass lens and can take 100watts of heat w/o a problem. Uses H3 bulbs which can be converted to HID if you so choose... $35 off eBay new in box. "FF" stands for "free form" and the pattern these put out is better than I expected- I compared them at night with several other lights I had, including a set of similar PIAAs

I have the Black dog mount with Baja designs squadrons and they work fine with the Safari tanks and low fender. I don't know about the high fender with this type of light mount, but I'm looking forward to the answer.

Got any pictures? I'm looking at getting these.

Not sure where or how to mount them yet though. Any ideas?

I bear no affiliation with these guys but check out some of the new LED products available...way way brighter than halogen with less energy use.

I have a similar issue. I have a set of Rigid Industries D2's that I ran without issue with the standard guard. Since the high guard conversion I'm at a loss as to where to put them now.

I just fab'ed up an aluminum bracket in November to hold the Rigid 6" LED light bar. 3600 Lumens, very bright with 2 floods with 700 Lumens each. Adds a lot to the over all light with minimal power impact. Uses the factor holes and out of the way. I am using the 6" Led hybrid with the combination of floods on the sides and spot in the middle. I also was able to mount 2 extra floods for lighting up corners or those sneaky deer. Click on the lick to see

Nicely Done! I am very jealous of that set up, that looks great! I'm going to get some Rigid's on my bike too, but now you made me rethink which ones I might buy!

Aux Lights work good under the headlight or on crash bars. One thing that is nice about separate lights is the ability to aim them individually. One thing thats nice about a light bar is that they dont get damaged in a fall over.:eek1
Here is my personal bike

Also look at the ONX by Baja designs. Looks a bit more spendy but similar to size.
The only thing I'm not sure is my lower lights on the bars. Those are dually Rigid spots. Great for long distance but may be an issue through the rough trails

Oh man, those are awesome! Thanks for the info, I will definitely check those out and figure out what I can afford. I will be sure to make a build thread if I do something sweet :D
