MATTRIDER - Aux Lamp

How did you attach your auxiliary lamp? Could you please share a detailed pic or 2? Thanks in advance.

Scenery is stunning - could you tell us exactly where it is ... ?

What is particularly interested in photos?
All filmed on the Kola Peninsula, but it is very big.
Tundra in the far north, the Peninsula Rybachyi; crossing shot in the center of the region, the desert in the far south.

Lights

Guys the lights are from a company called Rigid Industries here is the website.
http://www.rigidindustries.com/
Watch that video on the home page very impressive and mine have taken a few hits without any issues. I had them on my KLX and had to move them to the KTM.
It was a very simple install after looking for hours... All I needed to do was add a few washers to space the base out. Using the existing bolt of off the fork mounts. This also gives me complete motion side/side and up/down to adjust. Here are some pics:

Sm wheels

Also to answer the wheel question:

They came from a Company Called: RAD Manufacturing

It took about 3 weeks for them to build but you have complete control of colors and options. I even had the spokes power coated black.

Still working on my fork guards since they will not fit with the larger tire plus I am installing a Speedo Healer the next chance I have in the garage.

I have those on my 990 and they have saved my butt more times then I can count especially when it comes to spotting deer on the side of the road at night, not to mention the escaped 1000 LBS cow.

Love the mount on the 690 and next on my list.

Thank you for the quick reply.
One other question: does the beam of the aux lamp clear the headlamp hood or does it bounce back?
Thanks again!

Thanks Mattrider for the answer. Which model do you have? Did it come with the mount you used? Ok, two questions after all. Thanks again

Lights

I was looking for the original box but couldn't locate it. I believe it is a D-series HD Flood, and it does clear the headlight hood but I get some shadow off the turn signals. Not that bothersome I would move the turn signal before any other light location. And yes they did come with the mounts.
