Lighting score

We have a local place that gets returns from Amazon(mainly). Found a PIAA 1100 Sport/Touring kit(lights and wiring) for $119. Wife got it for me for Christmas. Of course the wiring is going on as we speak(shhh...don't tell her I took it out of the box). They sure made the wiring easy! Even I could figure it out

And you want to get your buddy in Aspen a set for his bike for Christmas, too!


Right?

Those lights are great, but use a lot of juice. Don't use the Acc1/Acc2 wires. Run a new wire from the battery.

How are you going to mount them? I'd pull off the grill below the headlight and tuck them in there.

Biggest problem... the headlight is almost useless now.

I have the main connections down on the battery with the switch on accessory 1. Good? Intend on mounting lights on crash bar.
zg: if i see another set I'll keep you in mind
