Air Dam with lights

Postby FlashBack » Mon Nov 03, 2014 11:36 pm



I acquired and Air dam that has lights on it. Brand new, still in the box and wrapping. Mounting it isn't an issue.
What i am wondering is if anyone else has had one of these and where is the best location to wire it into a power source.
The instructions state turn signals or headlight. Definitely viable options. Just wondering what other's experience has been with these?
Thank you

Do you want them on all the time or just when you turn? Or separate switch to turn on when you want?? Up to you...

For that position, I think I'd just run a wire up the frame to the accessory terminal on the fuse block.

I had one just like yours on mine when I bought it but needs new light units and can't find any.
Can you post all the info you have that came with it like name and model and a phone number for manufacturer. Thanks

If you don't have that style of air dam yet... you'll wonder why everyone doesn't have one. The other 1100's I see just don't look right without this add-on.

I had a Wineberry 82 and installed that accessory. I really liked the look of it. I wired it into the headlight circuit. However, I live in a headlight on always state. As such, it was on whenever I was on the bike. I don't think it would look as good being wired into the turn signals. But, it is your bike and your call. Ride safe.
