Best & brightest lower cowl LED driving lights?

Post by tamathumper » Tue Oct 09, 2018 11:44 am



I'm looking for recommendations on the best lower cowl LED driving lights, (NOT fog lights).

I don't want low and diffuse fog lights that light up the pavement just in front of the bike.

I want beams that will illuminate deer as far as possible down the road, while remaining safe for oncoming drivers.

I know there are exterior lights like the Clearwater brand, but for now I'm looking for lower cowl-mounted options.

I've seen Electrical Connections (backordered everywhere), Rivco, Show Chrome, Add-On and others. None of them consistently share their specs on luminosity, so I thought I'd ask here (and on other forums) for the board's wisdom.

I had these light under the cowl of my 1500 and liked them so much I bought a set for my 1800.
I made a mount like Rivco out of aluminum to mount under the cowl of the 1800. Everything is mocked up and looks good. Probably waiting until winter projects to start to do this permanent. I need to take all the plastic off for the wiring.

It's not what you buy, it's what you build.

I had Show Chrome LED lights installed at the beginning of the season and am very pleased with them,
