Lights & more lights for night riding... Not 100% happy with what I've got on the Vstrom now, I've been researching for some more power to hopefully light up the night sky ++ Denali seem to have the best reputation, but oh man do you ever pay over the top for those lights. The best option I...
The ideal position is always up high so they can shine down the road & give you good vision to where you are heading.
Originally I had thought about trying to mount them on the front of the screen, using the screen brackets, but this turned out to be unrealistic.
So the only other decent spot was up on the side of the fairing.
I had SRC brackets on the spotl;ights that bolted straight onto the 2015 bikes, but the 2017 bike has a different fairing & there is no metal frame under the fairing to bolt mount them onto; so Kong Electrics in Chiang Rai, came up with a satisfactory idea of drilling holes in the plastic & using small "boots"? to bolt them on.
I now have 3 sets of spotlights on the bike for night riding that I enjoy.
The bottom set of lights are yellow Loboo, that I use as running lights. in the day.
The middle set of lights are Loboo
The top set are Baja Design
The next step, a night time test & setting them up focussed correctly.
Yes the charging system could be loaded up a bit, but let's see how we go.
They don't all have to be on high at the same time, should need be; however that's the aim to light up the night sky & ride clearly.
Kong in Chiang Rai has mentioned some small lithium battey, 600 baht for the best one, that can piggy back onto the main lithium battery to give a few more amps if necessary.
Time & a good test run will tell.
