depends what your trying to do.
If you want lights for more visibility of you - then a spot would work, if you want to see further down the road then a spot would do.
If you want to see more around you not distance so much then flood

I just installed some spot lights on my FJR for visibility rather than seeing more from here

The owner Justin is a very nice guy and added 2 feet to the cables

I also installed a dimmer from here

i actually installed the 175 not the 175a - turns the lights up when i go to beam to 100% and leaves them at 20% when dipped ( 100% would be blinding at night even on these small lights

I have a pair of Denali LEDs from www.TwistedThrottle.com which have interchangeable lenses so you can change from one to the other..

I see that you mounted them on the fender in the exact same spot I did with mine. I had originally installed them on the brackets attached to the factory fender bolt. Had plenty of clearance turning but found out differently when stopping quickly and compressing the front suspension. Oops......:sad3:

AROTH........!!!!!! The pics are of my original installation - NOW - the lamps are on metal extension brackets which bring them down about another 3" so - no problems with fork compression....... 2 years now.........!!!

Well spots are just beams and floods are well wide spread less distance from what I understand
Just think of the difference between a spot and a flood beam....as a garden hose - which you can adjust for a long stream (spot) or have it spray in a wide pattern - (flood)

Hey v8eyedoc...where did you get the "metal extension brackets"? I had planned on mounting them to my fender, but may rethink it.
