    Aftermarket Light Mounts

    What's everyone doing for driving light mounts? I don't have engine guards on my R850R, but would rather have them higher up. I no longer have access to a machine shop while I'm unemployed. Not much room around the fork legs with the fairing, unless I put them low. I have a set of Ridgid lights, but they flat mount.

    You say 850R but mention fairing in way of fork mounts?

    Have seen them mounted to underside of outboard oil coolers.

    Have a set that clamp around the turn signal stalks on a 1100R but no clue who made them.

    Have a set of these on my GSA, it sure if still available but the website is up with a 2007 date on bottom

    The advantage to lowering them is the triangle provided for approaching vehicles. Up close to headlight, they just make a larger single profile... my .02 cents

    Thanks. The only issue with down low mounts is they don't light up down the road. I want some smaller ones down low for that. My fairing is a Parabellum Scout, so it mounts to the headlight mounts and the handlebar mounts. Not really an option..sadly.

    Are lights light enough to mount to fairing?
    Have seen lights on top of oil coolers as well

    There are car and bike mounts one of which may work.

    Thanks. I forgot about my car places. There's just not a lot of room with the fairing. I found some that may work, but after measuring my front forks the lowers are not round..they are oval. Still may work. A hair over 2.0 outside of on lower to the outside. Front to back 1.84 inches. That's around the top of the fender.

    There are a ton of choices for light mounts on Amazon. Many are made to fit a round tube with different rubber inserts for different sized tubing.
