    Auxiliary driving lights

    Hello everyone.
    Wanted to ask who has mounted auxiliary lights on their XR and where did you install them? 
    I am about to pull the trigger on a set of Denali S4’s (instead of the D2’s) because of their light output and size.  Although Indo not think the S4 will be the most appealing aesthetically, I want to get the most effectiveness from the purchase.  They are not cheap!
    Anyone out there that can post a couple of pictures as to where they installed their lights and what lights they chose?
    I am hoping to mount them on the forks or on my SW Moteck crash bars.
    Thanks.

    I dont have a set but I am also contemplating installing a pair..I can tell you that my buddy has them mounted low on his forks and when he is behind me in the daytime, they are not very effective at making him stand out ...
    so I would say crash bar mount or one of the Chinese mounts that mount them up high near blinkers would be a better choice ...and I dont have crash bars so Im limited to the high mount...  :001:

    Hi, I’ve bought a set of aux lamps and Innov CCTV, but not fitted them yet. I also bought a genuine set of BMW brackets with bolts from my local Motorrad dealer as I didn’t want to install crash bars.

    Hope to fit them soon, but wanted to say that the original brackets are available.

    do you have a link to the mounting brackets?

    Sorry no. I spoke to the parts team and they knew exactly what I wanted. They did send me the attached diagram though.
