I had the Wunderlich's on my F800GS, way too expensive and I didn't like the silver aluminum brackets, should be black for sure, can't get pained easily...
Handlebar Hella switch is not for motorcycles but for a car dashboard.
The wire was way too thick more like a cable used for a light fixture, didn't like it so I sold the lights again for a loss. I'd go with something like Hello Micro DE. On my R1200GS I got the Hella FF50 with Freeform reflector (great light output) but they don't look that great...

Handlebar switch:

want to hear some reviews and opinions beside the one that "R12GS HOOLIGAN" posted some time back...

is it bright and adjustable(able to tilt left and right)?

thanks for the help!

The mounting location that edfetz used works very well.

Anyone used the Autoswitch for their Aux lights? Nippy Normans blurb:

Quote:
The AS6B2 is for a second set of lights or another accessory. Switch on spotlights or other accesories just by holding down the indicator cancel button.

For the newest BMW motorcycles with CAN-BUS technology. Now use the turn signal cancel button (TSC).

Now featuring always ON red LED to tell you the spotlights are OFF. LED goes green when your spotlights or other accessory are ON.

Supplied with full instructions including wiring diagram.
Priced at 29 ($47US)

Lights? wtf I thought you said show us your tits! Tits are way better than lights. Especially on high beams.

OK, I am going to mount some Denali lights on my crash bars. Does anyone know a good source for a bracket or clamp that will allow me to attach them to the 1" OD crash bars? Thanks.

PIAA makes an inexpensive bracket.

I haven't had any problems with mine holding up and I have had them for a year now. They look and work great. I didn't really care for their switch mounting bracket, but it is easy to change it for something better. The instructions were poor and in Italian so they weren't much use to me.

this is the rigid industry set of dually spot lights on altrider bars (on a 658gs) using the piaa mounts - you can pretty much get any angle you need with these by rotating the mount itself or the tab the lights mount on

i also attached an overall shot to give a different angle on the lights

I picked up a set of Denali lights, but haven't installed them yet as I haven't figured out my preference for wiring. I'm in deer country and the two reasons that justified driving lights for me were better visibility for me to see critters at night and better visibility for others to see me in the daytime, in that order.

Here are the options I'm pondering:
  1. Switch both on with high beam. One with flood lens, one with spot lens, both aimed high to make things as bright as possible when using highs.
  2. Use a separate driving lights switch or just kick the relay on anytime the bike key is on. Both would need to be aimed for low beam use.
  3. Switch one on with high beam, the other on constantly or connected to a secondary switch.
I'm leaning towards option 1, but am interested to hear if others feel strongly that either of the other options (or something else?) would be better and why.

Thanks...

Numb, I like it and may swing that way but was looking for something a little less costly than $35 for just the brackets. I'll stop by the electrical supply shop tomorrow and look at pipe hangers.

don't blame you - i would've likely just used the same hardware but with the compound angles on the altrider bars where i was mounting, these brackets were perfect since you can adjust them all over the place to get the correct orientation. that said, for the price they are really solid pieces so if you end up with the light beam bouncing around on the pipe clamps these piaa clamps would be a good solid solution to stop it

I have shown these earlier.
It's a Touratec set-up. Fogs.
I'm about to take them off and put them in the flea market. Going down the minimalist path. Might regret it later.
