    Driving lights

    I'm looking at getting some driving lights from Denali. They have two sets I'm interested in. First is the DM 2.0 which has a diameter of 2.2 inches and length of 2.4 inches. The second choice is their D2 2.0 kit, that light diameter is 1.7 inches and 2.2 inch in length. Which of these two is closest in size to the F850GSA driving lights?

    I would be interested if the “kit” has everything needed in a “plug and play” wiring/brackets fashion.

    Do you mean like one click ordering for the "kit"?

    Twisted Throttle/Denali do make a very plug & play, mix and match set of products. But you have to choose your options and put together what you want:

    I do not have any experience with it IRL but the heart of it seems to be the CANsmart controller which integrate very easily with the wonder wheel and makes whatever combo of Denali stuff you want P&P.

    I've run both the Twisted Throttle D1's and D2's and really like them. They tell me the D2's are about 0% brighter and the new round shape is cleaner and smaller than the original. I ran mine direct from the battery with a separate switch on the bars but they have other options as stated. I think I'm going to mount the old D1's on my 525 as aux lights but I need to make a couple of new mounting brackets for them first. I'm also thinking of getting another set of D2's for my R1100 S.

    the D2's are the little ones on the sides

    Twisted Throttle also sells this SW-Motech bracket for the F-bike

    agreed, it's a nice clean mount but limited to small light options. With the new headlights I put in there's a lot of light on the front of this thing now.
