Very nice set up you have there. Beautiful mounting brackets. Where are they from if you don't mind me asking?

Some folk claim that the running lights up there mask the turn signals. Do you find this? Someone also said it's possible to make the LED blink with the turn.

I had Duelly's on my SE but they were on a poorly modified lower clamp bracket. The mod lead to the bracket failing and dropping the Duelly into the front wheel. Luckily it just wrapped around the fork and stayed on the outside! Looking forward to getting my new BD SE bracket to get them mounted up again properly.

You can check AXIA ALLOYS BRACKETS

Just remember to measure the shock thickness because they have a variety depending on the thick. The ones I bought on Ebay where a little big so I put a rubber relay to get them tight well. They even doesn't have any wobble with vibrations.

i have the rigid lights and ride with them nightly. No cars flash me and no car brake checks me because the placement is perfect for riding and no one being upset.
Its like turning night to day, absolutely incredible.

I bought the spots for the tiger 800. Really impresive distance. But fot the 690 i run d2 driving lights. Better suited for me. Like more the driving lights than the spots

These lights were on my 990 before I sold it, so mount, harness, and lights were moved to my 690. The mount came from Black Dog (990 high fender mount).

Looks great. Do you need to do any modifications? Any clearance issue? I did email BDCW and they said it may hit the 690 radiator.

Doesn't come close to hitting the radiator, but does lower the fender by the thickness of the mount (1/4") so the two pins on the fender which locate the lower part of the light assembly may be too low to fit into their mounting holes. Mine just barely catch, but you could use zip ties to pull the lower part of the light assembly back to its proper location. All this would affect is the light adjustment range as the whole light assembly is secured by two bolts.
