I haven't set up a photo account yet to post new pics. Her is an old post of mine when I got the Kristas. The Ericas are exactly the same size, mounted in the same location, the only difference is 7 small led lights instead of the 3 in the Kristas. The mounts are better now too. As far as seeing them turned on, just look at the sun and that would do the Ericas justice. You can't look at them on high. The other day I saw my wife driving out of the neighborhood as I was riding in. She was a block away and I did a quick flash of my passing light. She said she had blue dots in her vision for two blocks of driving. Memo to self; don't flash ON coming traffic.

Fog Lamp Install

I installed the KTM OEM fog lamps last night...what a project! It took me nearly 5 hours. While I had the tank off, I also installed the UniFilter. Installation involved drilling three holes in plastic panels--I only drilled one in the wrong place . It took me so long because it was the first time I took the tank off and I was trying to be careful not to screw anything up too badly. I can't believe dealers do it for free!

Do the Auxiliary lights draw power from one of the Acc wires or do they draw directly from the battery through a relay?

Thanks,

...And there's a main supply cable that goes back to the Battery for power...there is a relay in the system.

My LED setup

Apologies for the late reply...

I am super impressed with the clearwater lights. 2000 lumens each, dimmable, basically a quality product. I ordered extra crash bar mounts and they fit perfect.

Seriously, even with them on at 10-15% during the day, the frequency of damn cars cutting me off has been reduced by 90%. Worth every single penny!!! The other great thing is that you connect them to the high beam relay and when flcking the high beams they go up to 100% immediately!

Pictures below:

+1 Taksd. Looks great :)


I got mine installed before I took delivery of my bike. Great product & works extremely well. It truly exceeded my expectations . I used a SW Motech bracket instead of the engine guard brackets.

Was thinking of doing something similar but then they would be too exposed :)
In case of a tip over they would be the first thing to go!

Nice bike BTW!

I have the SW Motech mounts for my Erica as well but I have not mounted them yet so I am interested in your pics. I know that an easy tip over you contact the ground with the handlebar end and the outer most point of the crash bar. So in your opinion is your setup going be safe in a tip over.

I have the crash bar mounts as well. Maybe I will leave enough wire to try both.

Everything is relative... Let's say safer... :)
I guess 1 broken Erica would be he cost of crash bars, hand guard and rear view mirror!

I guess it all depends on how much off road you do. I don't do much but have found no negatives in mounting them where I did!
