I'm curious about this too. I have a 2013 and can't find anything on mine that looks like an aux light would mount there.

Now the questions I have is since the plastics are different on the 13's will these brackets work with the older bikes and where do you source the power from?
This will not work on the 13.

If you look at the fisch you will see the two brackets that are in the kit. #2 and #3.

OK, I see that now. Do you have any pictures of them mounted, I'm still not clear on how they would be installed. Thanks.

It will on a 12 and earlier, my question is whether The brackets will fit the pre-facelift bikes or not.

And I guarantee there is a plug hidden somewhere to plug the lights in on a 2013's

I have LED lights mounted on small l brackets off the headlight side bolt on my 2013. Works very well, does not interfere with the signals.

Interesting. Any chance you can post a picture or two of your setup?

I would like to see that also..hard to envision any Aux lights mounted on the head light not interfering with the signals..

The mounts keep the lights tucked in and clear the signals.

Thanks for the picture.

Is it easy to see the signals flash when the aux lights are on?
