Hi

My new AT tri colour has landed and will be ready for me to collect Friday.

I have removed these driving lights from my Pan ST1300.

The AT has the factory spot lights fitted so I have no need for them.

Check on the internet and you will see the full spec.

I paid £199 for them 8 months ago.

Offers are welcome.

Sorry, not interested in your lights, but am interested in a Pan rider making the switch to the AT, as I also have an ST1300 and thinking of (at some point in the future) maybe making the switch. That's why I am lurking here, to see how folk are getting on with the AT.

How do you find it after the Pan? What do you see as the pros and cons of both?

Would be great to hear your opinion on this.

Hi

I used to have the AT 750.

Time came to change the bike due to high mileage and I couldn't find a new AT 750 so looked at different replacements.

Started with the ST1100 and progressed to the ST1300.

Always looked back at the AT750 with fond memories, so every now and then I tried to replace it with another adventure style bike, but only having a around 27 inches inside leg, there weren't a lot of options.

Went into the Honda dealers to purchase a new pan st1300 55th birthday present, looked longingly at the AT 1000 and said to the dealer "if only I could ride one but I am too small".

A ha he says try the special lowered seat. I did and I bought it, then and then.(the bike and the seat)

I loved my AT750 so for me its all pro's.

I feel the AT will be more fun that the stable, solid ST1300.

I guess I will miss the pan when its pouring with rain, tucked up behind the bikequip extra wide screen. (which by the way is also for sale)

Sorry I am very biased, my heart rules my mind.

Please excuse the question if it's a stupid one!
Are the lights just plug and play, is all wiring there or would you need extra grubbing to fit them onto the Africa twin?
Thanks a lot

Hi

The lights are completely plug and play.

You will need to connect direct to the battery for the power and then you can either connect a wire to the live on the main beam supply which will means they automatically light up when the main beam is switched on

OR connect the wire to a constant live, I used the rear light supply on the Pan and then used the switch, which is within the supplied wiring loom and switch them on and off as you wish.

Mount the switch where ever you like, I used number plate double sided tape (as its really strong) and mounted the switch on my left hand switch gear.

Its really as simply as that.

If you send me a PM with your email address I will scan a copy of the wiring instruction for you.

Thanks
