Lights mounted in your bike for night time useage

Post by kajunmisfitt » Thu May 07, 2015 2:51 am

Hello Everyone :
I have been thinking about this for a while and now I have ordered the lights and I am wondering if their is a right way and a wrong way to mount these lights. I was thinking of mounting them under the frame and in the area of the air breather then going under the fenders a lot with a set of air stem on my tires so when I am rolling their lighting up and when I am stopped at a light or stop sign then it is not lit. I have been told that LED lights are easier to use from the normal lights bars since they use more amps or volts. hence less power being used from my alternator. I have never use these or put anything like this on a bike. Thanks for your help in this matter !!!! I am not having to worry about the colors because it is orange and red on the tires!!! :idea:

LED auxiliary lights are definitely the way to go for the GL1100, as it doesn't have a lot of extra power to play with.

In terms of positioning them, the higher up vertically you can get the lights, the better they are going to perform in terms of lighting up the road.
