I know you can give a rats arse on this one because your probably only going to be using it off road but,,,,, when you do,,, and you will use it on the street, you will get some very pissed off passerbyers.
I know it is prolly not legal... "off road use only" bla bla bla. If I use it on the street, it'll be in-the-middle-of-no-fookin-where... less likely to piss off a truck-load of big-freakin-belt-buckle-I-won-the-rodeo-look-at-my-niffty-lever-action-rifle boys.
I imagine one of the differences between legal ($$) and not so legal ($) is the quality of focus and lack of glare. I remember my Audi lights were pretty low glare.

I just want to ride behind you darlin' Jamesy.

I couldn't wait till tonight to cut the hole. It came out cleaner than I thought it would... Only a little deburring and sanding.

Hope it's pointed in a useful direction.

Hey Creep, you will have to report on the effects of high speed stability with your hole.

Personally I think you are one fucked up dude.

If I had a hole like that I wouldn't show it to the world, I know Loaded thinks the sun shines out of your hole but now we all know it is just an imitation sun.

Wow! Creeper has a bitchen' hole...

Actually, that looks pretty nice (like you value my opinion).

Two holes might look twice as nice.

How much wind is gonna come out of your hole ( ).

13 watts each, right? No sweat. What did that little bugger cost again? Might have to add one to my list.

Thanks Chris. I do value your opinion... with some things.

I can't afford a second hole... or rather, the light to fill it. Yes, a bit over 1 amp draw. They run $109 retail from Trail Tech.

My light is always on fer Loaded.

Uncle Crappy,

Did you put the 1 amp across the toggle or did you get all techie on us and hook up a relay (I'm guessin' 1A = switch only)...?

Looks great creeper! that is a nice safe spot for a aux. One thought, is that light protruding thru the faring hole? If not you could mount a lil bit of lexan on the inside (or cut it to fit the hole ) and you have a nice rock guard.

i would recommend it - with all these jealous bastages around they will likely be roostin' ya next chance they get!

I checked these guys out and didn't find a whole lot of info on their site about the light. Is it a 35 watt bulb? Does it have an external ballast? Dja got it aimed yet?

Very nice job BTW.

I was told that factory HIDs ( on cars ) have tilt motors for automatic up/down correction........ that is why they are expensive.
That may also be why aftermarket HID kits are off road use only, they have no tilt motors = cheaper.

Anyone know more about this ? ( nice looking hole creeper ).

Grandpa Chrissy,
Ran it straight, tapped off a 12V switched wire at a 9 pin socket set. Used the horn mount bolt for a ground. Switch is way overkill but it's waterproof and what I had handy.
