Auxiliary Lighting??

Absolutely loving my new AT. I wanted to get some feedback on lighting options. Has anyone upgraded or added additional lighting for a better night ride experience? Thank you!

I have some Denali D4 lights on the way. I've read that they are very bright and useful lighting. I'll post up when I have a chance to install them on the bike.

Would love to hear some feedback! I went with Baja Designs on my last bike but wanted to put my feelers out for other options. Looking forward to your review.

I went with the the Cyclops B15 Long Range LEDS. They're aluminum and stainless housing, not overly large but throw a ton of light. I'm very happy with them.

If you are on a budget and don't mind a little wiring then https://www.bikevis.com/product-cate...iliary-lights/

I have the Cree V3 as 30 degree spread DRL's but you can get 10 degreee spread spots too. They are cast aluminium and feel pretty sturdy. As the draw on the CREE's are only 10w each they are powered from the OEM power connector behind the fairing, no relay required, switched via Honda fog button and come up indicated on the dash when on.

If you want switched dual spot and spread pattern they have Rigid Industries Duallys also for a 20w draw.

pics are for Cree's.

I'm also interested in some aux lights. I have the AUX 12v port in hand but before I begin the massive task of installing it, I want to get the lights in hand so I don't have to take it all apart again.

I would like to install a push button swith in the OEM blank that I think is used for something on the DCT models. Anyone know of a source for a good quality all weather switch, or someone who has done this?

Auxiliary Lighting??- switch

Lots of info on this topic on the forum, use the search tool to find a heap of useful info. Use the OEM Honda fog switch which fits in the blank on the left hand side. It is cheap enough, rugged roads have them in stock.
