Thanks for the reply BNAHOSS.  I just received the kit for the fronts lights and it contained two of the black light housings which look exactly like the ones that came with the bike, hence, the question.  I also communicated with Mark, the owner, before ordering and he was very helpful and owns a 2021 XR.  He told me they are going to have a dual light setup for the rear lights sometime this year.

Great. Seems there are two housings for the side lights. I had incandescent bulbs, no black piece was needed. Mark will make certain your squared away! nice bit of kit... ENJOY  :062:

It’s under the seat. If no alarm, it will be pinned to the plastic sidewall. It has a cap on it.

As far as brackets go I installed mine with the L shape brackets that put the mini spotlights at the side of the headlights.Works fine and looks ok.  But I saw these brackets to fit them on the upper fork which I bought as they are big enough and might look even better 😁

Hey there,

So if you are going for long-range visibility with your lights, I recommend the Clearwater Darla. https://www.clearwaterlights.com/collections/krista-led-motorcycle-lights  They aren't too big but still super bright. If you don't mind going for larger lights, the Clearwater Krista is a solid choice. https://www.clearwaterlights.com/collections/krista-led-motorcycle-lights

I currently have the BMW "Nano" auxiliary lights on my XR. They work very well but I do think the Clearwaters are brighter because I've seen them on my friend's bikes.

I also have the Weiser Driving/Turn Signal lights installed. They do a good job of keeping me seen by drivers on the road. I have noticed that drivers do not pull out in front of me as often ever since installing them.

I also have the Clearwater Billie Brake Light and it works great.

I hope this helps.

Thought I'd add my alternative idea to this thread as I don't think anyone has posted this as an option.

1. Hex Ezcan wiring/accessory manager.
2. DENALI DM 2.0 Trioptic LED Light Pod with DataDim Technology.
3. Evotech Crash protectors - with optional spot lamp brackets.

I must have super neat and tidy on the bike and this set up is just that - IMO :038:

The brackets mount directly onto the machined area where the factory lamps would fit.

The Ezcan manager allows lots of options in particular the spots switch off when indicators are in use and come back on automatically afterwards, strobe when you flash the headlights and flash alternately when hazards are on.

Hope this helps those who are looking for ideas. :001: :002: :164:

Enjoy.
