SW Motech driving lamps
« on: August 26, 2012, 09:23:14 PM »
Hi everyone;

I was lucky enough to pick up a set of Hawk off road lights at Hein Gericke's sale in Glasgow with 60% off   :002:

BUT I need to mount them on the Honda crash bar thingy, the brackets to go with them look like this ...

http://www.motohaus.com/acatalog/Fog_Ligt_Kits___Auxilliary_Light-Mount.html   (bottom of page)

and come in 22mm and 26mm (a quick measure of the Honda bars works out at roughly 20mm diameter)

Has anyone else used these or any other mounts on the Honda bars for the Hawk off road lights??

I'm hoping that I won't need to make up a pair of rough and ready (and not very pretty) brackets for my latest bargain!!  any idea's welcome.  :084:

If anyone has a close up of the Honda fog lights to hand, especially the brackets and how they fit to the bars, it would be great!

Thought I'd post the final result for the lighting brackets.
 I managed to get some stainless steel brackets made up locally.  :002:

Thanks guys, IMHO ... they give the bike a whole new look when they're lit up and a bit more eye catching for your average car driver. (fingers crossed)   :021:

Great!
Works it fine?
- has these lamps enough light?
Not always, but more and more often...

Hi Bob;  The light output is good at 55W each, and they compliment the headlight output too.  My last bike had a full HID conversion and this set up compares ok with the HID's.    .
Although I've left these on the original separate on/off switch.
(If you wanted you could have them come on automatically with the main beam... but then you would lose the option to turn them on independently... unless you altered the wiring to the relay of course)
