It is my understanding that you use the horn mounting holes. how do you do this and retain the horn. Looks like the angle iron will have to be shaped considerably. But maybe I am over looking the obvious. I would appreciate some help! I am trying to get my moto headed from Mississippi to Central America. Of course I have to stop in south Mexico and pick up my "novia"! Photos of my moto are included. Thanks!

Perhaps you could ask this in Orange Crush?

Even happier with the lights now, not to mention the service from John.
Thanks!

Where did you find the ezy-mount?

I bought it from Cyclenutz. It was their last set, and I couldn't find anyone else with stock. It's a shame because it's very well made, over engineered for my application.

Which is the hot wire on the LED 30s? Thanks!

On the on/off switch, does it make any difference which side has the power source. Only positive is hooked to the switch , correct? I know I am a dumb A$$, but a simple wiring diagram in with the lights would be very helpful. Thanks!

Can anyone comment on how difficult installation is?

I have been reading through page after page of reviews and pictures, but can't seem to find anyone talking about how difficult the installation process is. These lights look fantastic, but I am a bit intimidated by the electrical installation. I am fairly new to motorocycle maintenance in general and have no experience messing with electrical installs on a bike. Anyone care to comment on if I should even attempt this? Also, if you wanted to install these with the OEM switch, how much more work would be required?

If you use Posi-taps, the installation of any electrical equipment becomes a breeze!!

You can find those pretty much anywhere nowadays...

Good luck!!

I did not have any problems hooking them up. I ran the stock headlight and two 60's, wired up to the light switch also. It came with a positap for hooking into the headlight. I also had the dimmer so they were turned down on low beam and full power on high beam. It was don't that hard and he will help with any questions you have. The only thing I am going to recommend it the lens protector if you are going to ride off road and behind your friends.

It's not difficult at all.Disassembling the bike and finding the proper wires to connect to is the difficult part.I suggest getting a quality service manual to aide in disassembling and locating the proper wiring.A knowledgeable DIY guy can probably lend a hand.There maybe someone on the forum will to help out that lives near by.I would keep my lights wired separate from the bikes systems,but include a relay to shut down the lights when the bike is shut down.

Thanks for the info! I actually find a pretty decent set of instructions for mounting the OEM Fog lights on my Tiger 800 XC, and I imagine these would be very similar. After reading through those I am pretty comfortable with taking the bike apart, including taking the gas tank off the bike to get access. Not 100% sure what all wires need to connect where, but hopefully that will make more sense when I am looking at it all. It didn't look like any splicing into other headlight wires was required if put these on a completely different switch however. Are most of you guys wiring it into your high beams? I also didn't see anything specific about making sure power goes off when you turn the bike off, so I am guessing since the bike comes with OEM fog light option, and this is using those, that the power will be turned off when the bike is by default.
