Thread: Aux light mounting options

    Aux light mounting options

    I don't even have the bike yet, pick it up April 1, but I already have a set of Denali D2's one the way. I had this on my last 2 bikes and wanted them on the 03 RT. But ublike the other bikes I am not finding much in way of mounting options. Denali selle ths universal offset fender ones but I am sure that I am missing what other optionsa are out there.

    Motolights (I had some on my 1150RS) had the caliper mount option. They supplied the mount and a single longer brake caliper mount bolt. Maybe they have a similar mount?

    The position of my PIAAs makes a large triangle.

    I would like to mount my Denali lights in the same place that you have yours. I assume you drilled holes from the underside of that area. Is that how you installed them and was it difficult to drill through the plastic?

    Also have a very similar '04 with lights in same place. The light bracket mounted to some pre-existing holes/bolts. Just unbolted, mounted the brackets/lights and tightened the bolts. Did the same with a previous '02 K1200RS, same mounting points.

    Mine were originally mounted under the oil cooler but the triangle was too small (for my liking) and on occasion, they would hit the front fender and left marks on the fender.

    Thanks. I will look for those bolt holes to use. I will also have to get some brackets or fabricate them.

    Thanks for the info. These lights are fairly small. I will make sure they are well above the fender.

    Here are some inexpensive LED lights I got off ebay, had to make brackets to mount on my RS model. Since I didn't have heated grips, bought some OEM switches which I used to turn them off an on/off.

    Unfortunately I don't have space like that on my bike.

    I made a few calls to try to find mounting brackets but had no luck. Yesterday I stopped at Lowes and bought what I believe will work for under $20. I will be able to mount my light in the same area as PAS's lights.
