I have new 2012 650 & am adding a trike kit for added safety as I am only 4'11 gal. But for added safety, I want to add bright but smaller pair of front aux lights.
I cant seem to find a pair that are small put powerful or where an how to mount them. I do NOT want to mount onto any plastic. I want to somehow mount
to the fork. But having trouble finding lights that are strong but small enough to mount in the tight space. Any suggestions PLEASE??? FaithRider

There are several people who have mounted driving/fog lights to the front forks. It sounds like that's what you're looking for.

As for the lights themselves, I recommend buying from ADVmonster.com http://stores.intuitwebsites.com/hstria ... gories.bok I bought the Model 30, which puts out a spot light beam pattern that is about equivalent to a normal low beam headlight. Being an LED light, it takes very little current so it won't impact your electrical system as much as a halogen light would.

You'll have some choices there, as you'll see. I would consider what you plan to do with the light before buying. If you're looking for conspicuity lights, with the added benefit of getting some light on the road if caught out at night, I recommend his Model 30 like I have. If you aim it properly, you can use it in traffic because the beam is a spot light or driving light pattern, not a flood light. Most of the others are flood lights and you'll blind others, even in daylight because they are so bright.

I need some very powerful spot lights that go beyond my headlights to help me on the back roads steer clear of deer. The Walmart 50 watt ones do NOTHING.

Mike, would this work?

or this:

Both are 3600 lumens and about 28 watts each...much less than your 50 watt lamp, and over two times brighter.

If you use the code "inmate" at checkout, you'll get 10 percent off.

I can't see the video on my I-Pad, so I'll have to watch it later. There are sooo many choices and output terms and ratings that I can't figure out what size I need.
