H'okay, so I am working on an aux light project. I plan on adding a total of 6 extra LED light pods to the front. I already have a fuse box relay set up and ready to connect and I know I'll need a high output alternator.
I've already done a full LED conversion on all the major lights, but even with super bright H4s, I still can't see too far in front of me on pitch black roads. I had maybe 20 feet of truly illuminated road distance. I could see farther, but could not clearly see. I'm pretty sure this is because of the nature of the headlight projecting a "blob" of light rather than anything focused. My Miata was the same way until I swapped to a pair of LED 7" round projectors that were intended for jeeps.
The plan is to get a pair of side shooter/spot/flood combo pods and aim them down to complement the curb lights and project in front a bit more. Next is a pair of 6" spot/flood combo pods to be aimed slightly higher and project farther down the road. Both of these mentioned will be tied into a switch and into the low beam circuit. Finally, a pair of spotlights that will be tied into a switch and on the high beam circuit to provide the extra light straight down the road on those pitch black country roads.
Here's the question, though... I can't seem to find a lot of information regarding light bars. From what I've seen, there are basically 3 kinds.
First, we have these boys, it looks like they attach behind the forks at the top of the radiator grill.
Second, we have this type. They seem to attach right under the headlight.
Finally, I'm seeing these, but I'm not sure where they mount or if that hardpoint is already taken up. No interest in the lights themselves, but that bar looks nice.
Would appreciate input or pictures if you have these mounted on your bike. I'm fairly sure I can pull off the first 2 at the same time and mount 4 of them on the big bar and 2 on the small bar.
What I'm thinking is mount the side shooters and the flood/spot combos on the big bar and aim them down and the spot beam pods on the high beams will be mounted up high and angled down to prevent blinding of other cars. Any advice on this?
