Nice job on the lights. Where did you get the cup holder?

I just can't like the look of the lights down there. I am sure they work well but they look silly and I can imagine would easy to damage.

I like the cupholder and like Cdeptola1 would like to know where you got it. It looks like it folds when not in use.

The nice advantage to mounting there should be the light is where you point the bike.

Just added some lights to the 13 Burgman. Man are they bright. It was a easy install. Just drilled out one end of the reflector mount and tapped it to 8x1.25 and mounted them on. Also added a cup holder.
Nice setup, But you should Use a Steal Strap, So there won't get Stolen Since those Kind of Leds are Popular...

MJR, +1 On Aiming Light as you Turn, Just way you see the ground Ahead... The setup leb123, has that As Well. The Only Problem i had with it, Is Keeping the Wires from Getting Between the Steering Column. Sucks some time..

the wires were pretty simple, after getting all the Tupperware off. No problems with the steering I just followed the brake line through the holder to the bars. the main wires went from the frame on the right side of the bike and up. there seemed to be a lot more room there. just hooked up the 2 power lines there. one to the battery and ran the other to the open seat heater fuse. This will let me shut off the lights with the ign. The cup holder is up side down. It works great. just used two strips of Velcro to hold it down it is very solid and holds larger cups and mugs. I got it from Amazon.com it is called The Mugger from American technology. Part#CH-00100-blk-1 the cost was around 6.50 dollars and shipped within 2 days. I just need to put a piece of leather or light wood on the top because it is up side down, it was made to be mounted on a door or dash.
I would have liked to put the lights higher but there is no place for them with a strong support. Right under the head light was my second choice but would limit my front wheel travel up and down. Down there they work great with the fog we have had the last couple of nights. Yes they look funny but I cant see them when riding.

leb123, I like where you mounted your lights. They look good, where did you get them and what watt are they? Also do you know how many looms they are?

They are 12 watts each. Also they are rated at 6300k, that is a little to white for me but could not find a led in the 5k range. These are very bright. If I had to do it over again I would have went with a flood pattern instead of a spot pattern. These throw a pattern 3 times longer than the headlights and make them look yellow. I am going to change out the head light bulbs with the Piaa plasma, they are rated at 5500k. still a white light but more usable than stock.

I looked long and hard at the clearwater lights. They are great. The only reason I went with Piaa is they sponsored me when I did an arctic circle crossing in Feb of 2000. they were good people to work with and so I stayed with them. No neither are cheap. They both cost a lot we will see how they hold up.

I remember working with PIAA lights back in the late 80's to early 90's when I was building concept cars at the time, nice but still pricey back then too. ;)

Have added mine recently also. Investigated a couple of options but found the ones used by light gurus, Cdeptola1, TheDarkCutlass, Colossal suit the bike best. So, quick review

+ Easy customizable, you can choose from zillion options what kind (bulbs, leds), power, color to go inside.
+ The design nicely integrates with the lines of Burgie, actually one might think it's a genuine accessory. :D
+ Pretty straightforward installation
+ Metal casing, just need a bit care but matches standard mirrors and muffler shield.
+ Price, whole package though assembled from pieces costs less than $100 total.

- Poor water and dirt protection. Needs a bit of work.
- Slightly heavy with LED, thou i didn't weigh aftermarket so that may be the same issue.






I think she likes it :D
