How do those mofos hook up to the bike? I mean, how do you attach them?

I ran power from the battery to the switch to the lights. I hijacked an already extincting screw.

I did either! It's a flickr thing - lets you scroll though your photostream. I had to delete the pictures of me doing naughty things!

powering up?

What is the consensus on powering up aux. lights? I see where guys have used the taillight power wire, I see where some have tied into the small bulb in the headlight housing and also have seen some using the GPS accessory connector at the battery to have ignition power as a trigger wire to a relay. I personally like the idea of using the accessory GPS connector. Any input on this?

I used an AS7 Autoswitch triggered by the turn signal cancel button, to a relay, with switched power from a Fuzeblock for my Hella fog lights.

for clarities sake

I plan on using a relay w main power wired directly to battery. I am primarily looking for input on various "trigger" wire resources. Twisted Throttle sells an adapter for the headlight marker light, and I have seen guys using the GPS accessory adapter at the battery, and also tapping into the taillight power wire. I think the easiest source of this switched power is the GPS connector at the battery using a dealer purchased connector. I am a little hinky about screwing w the electronics, s/a tapping into wire inline etc. due it being under warranty and the mystery, to me, of a canbus system. Thanks!

Cyclops all the way



Light bar is a 530 Penetrator, lower aux lights, Cyclops Long Range, both 10 degrre for long throw. Headlights are the Cyclops Long Range Extremes running a Skene dimmer, daytime use will be with the yellow covers, one with the 20 degree pattern. Night time I will run one clear 20 degree lens cover and one open at %50. All are LED. Best setup I have ever seen, let alone used. Fill, distance, and perimeter lighting all covered. Conspicuity during the daylight, and clean light everywhere.

Words fail me mate, that's an awesome setup. I was just reading through your build thread for this - great work.

It looks fantastic as well as being practical.

Thanks!! Last year on the COBDR I had "enough", but I wanted more. Suspension took priority but seeing as I have that all sorted I finished off the lights.

I'm not quite sure you have the watts to do it though!




PS: yeah, kinda jealous.

Rigid Industries D2 LED driving lights


TT fuse block doing it's job.


This is the wiring setup with the new lights, hyper light brake lights, power-let outlet and a SAE "Y" setup for voltage meter and usb outlet for charging stuff.


Wires running out to the right side. You can see that I have a bundle of wires wrapped up there for the led signals too.


Left Side





This is the true test: Regular head light...


Now with the new lights!

I would say that I am satisfied with how bright they are!

Denali DM Micro

Just installed them and I am really impressed with how bright and how much light they put out! I used the 25 degree flood lens since I was looking to enhance my overall road and trail side view. they are small and light enough to mount directly to the plastic radiator shroud and take up no space, the loom was harder to fit then the lights!



headlights only


headlight and Denali's
