Driving Lights

Postby wingnut123 » Wed Sep 08, 2010 5:43 am



I want to put some driving lights on my "1985 Aspencade, but don't want a bunch of electrical problems, or draining my batterie every time I turn them on. I want to mount them on my engine guards.
Thanks Everyone,
Rod

Yup, 2x35 watt lights is about the limit - that said, I replaced my running/brake lights with LEDs, which also bought me a lot of power reserve.

85 GL1200I cloned LTD. Blue may not be the fastest color but it is the prettiest! No matter how blue things may get, there is always a rainbow in the sky
