    2018 RT Authority Front Strobes

    Does anyone have close up pictures of how the front strobe lights are attached to the bike?
    I need to attach a set to a civilian model and would like to duplicate the mounting process.
    The Police in my state now use only Yamaha and Honda Police bikes.
    Thanks in advance,
    Adrian.

    Hi Pat. Thank you but no. I'm not really interested in the actual bracket (although that will help with my manufacturing) I am more interested in seeing a picture of an actual bike and the bracket placement to visualise how it's attached and where. I want to ensure I use the same mounting point so as not to damage the plastics.
    I guess if anyone has as set of the light posts that they don't require that would help even more.

    Thanks

    Just in case anyone wants to know - found the info I was looking for.



    I intend to mount some lights on the BMW brackets, IMHO a better option than down low on the crash bars.

    this is the police bracket for blue front lights. My friend installed a set of Kristas on these brackets on a 2015. Definitely works.

    Pictures taken with a vertical iPhone seem to transition sideways through the forum software. Members have had luck holding the phone so the lens is in the upper left when taking a picture helps post as taken.
