Auxiliary lights 640 adventure

I just picked this up the other day

http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=299440

I looked over the index thread...I cant seem to find a post/pictures of
auxiliary lighting for this bike. I have looked at the touratech site but was looking for other options.

To clarify, I am looking to add fog lights...

There does not seem to be a fog light option per se!
Reason is, Charging capacity is fairly limited and you need wats in order to drive fog lamps.
You may need to look at HID's in order to allow substantial fog light output.

Yep, even though the 640A is what their owners feel is the best jack-of-all trades do it all bike, an abundance of excessive farkle juice isn't something it's blessed with.

If you're wanting to use anything more than AA Pen lights as aux. lighting you might have better luck hearding cats.

Read over this thread and PM me if you have any questions. I'm sorta proud of this project and look forward to riding at night with this setup.

sanchez thread is about the best starting option. an hid conversion will increase your light output and reduce your current draw. if a couple hid beams is not enough you can add some hid aux lighting after... but start with the hid conversion. this will free up a little bit of charging output you're going to need.

trailtech make hid aux lights at a reasonable price.
