1190 OEM Aux Light mounting (Images)

Hello ! In brief, if someone has the OEM Aux lights, please do some images of the mounting points

In detail, I am interested in installing some AUX lights on my KTM 1190. I am trying to fit the lights somewhere high but not to place them also to vulnerable spot.

I have seen that there are two options. SW-Motech, which they extent too far out of the bike and the OEM ones.

Since i have understood that they OEM Mounting comes only with the AUX lights, which i am not interested, could someone please post some detailed images of the mounting point of the OEM Aux lights ?

Maybe that is a task i can do on my own after all and install the lights of my preference.




PS. The image was taken from http://www.advrider.com/forums/showp...3&postcount=18

If the OEM lights don't interest you, I have seen a few post of some badass light bars that fit between the forks and could light a runway if need be.

Hello. The question is where the lightbar is going to mount, how far they are going to light and the negative also that i cannot put them to light where i want them.

I am more interested in "normal" aux lights :)

I want to install a pair of Crearwater Darla LED lights in my 1190 Adventure.
I was told not to mount them attached to the upper part of the fork tubes (as I intended to, initially) because they could get damaged in the event of the front suspension bottoming out completely.
I was advised to have them mounted attached to those exact threads shown in the picture you posted, which is where the KTM PowerParts LED lights are attached (in the absence of crash bars).
Upon completion of the installation I will post some pictures. Installation will be completed by the end of the current week, hopefully.

The lightbar posts show the lightbars mounted up by the fairing in between the forks. Seems like they are out of the way well enough. The light output depends on your wallet thickness. Like I said, you can light a runway if you can afford it and your alternator can handle it!

Normal 3" spot lights can be very good as well. Price and output seem to be a direct relationship on these as well.

Good luck with your search and post up some night shots when you get them installed.

Well i need some images first (Thus this topic) of how the OEM mounting are so that i can create something similar. The position is neat. The SW Motech are good alternative but as i already said they extend too far outside.
