DIY a yellow spot light below the headlights.
Cost US$ 5 for the spot light (55W).
Got my wireman to do the wiring. Fixed a relay to avoid frying anything. Cost US$ 10. (I suck with electric wiring).
Fixed it with the low beam light. Work well at night giving more light and a distinct white over yellow beam. Works well in the rain, too.
Working on a case for the spot light.
The V OEM colour was plasma blue. Sprayed my cowlings grey after a crash.
1. The high beam looks good, no problems for needed additional lighting.
2. I like this look having only one square amber light. I might bent the light
frame to a 60 degree angle to give it a nicer look.
It's work in progress but Thanks for the feedback.
to you and the Gang for your inputs/feedbacks.
Had bend the frame yellow frame down and it looks much nicer.
Trying to make a housing cover for it to look smart.
The yellow/amber light is 55W.
Took a ride in the dark last night and Loving it.
What I like most is it's distinctive light for vehicles to notice before I overtake. Maybe I'll post pictures of it during night riding.
I have a hyper yellow bulb in my low beam. I do this on all my bikes with dual headlights. It gets way more attention that a regular bulb. This combined with my high beam flashing with a modulator really gets peoples attention. I only use the modulator in heavy intersections traffic but it has saved my butt a few times.
Had now fixed a cheap voltmeter and a switch to switch on/off the yellow/amber light.
Intend to switch off the spot light for startup and switch it back on when cruising on the freeway.
IMHO, it's good to have an onboard voltmeter to continuously monitor the battery's health. Better still those with the integrated gear indicator display. http://londonbikers.com/news/3157/ac...ator-voltmeter
I'll decided to stick to 3 colours of plasma blue, silver and black.
Had spray my stebel (red) to black and it matches the other parts.
Had replaced my DIY radiator grill with a larger grill to cover the whole radiator.
1. 40L Hepco and Becker juniors hard bags. The 30L ones did not have enough space. Would have to be more careful now in lane spliting.
2. Rear hugger which I would like to spray plasma blue to match the petrol tank.
3. Clear turn indicator lenses which suits the bike nicer.
Had sold my HB 30L to a fellow V biker callsign Joebuck (Joe).
When onshore working (Joe works in the oil and gas on/offshore), he commutes about 360 km from home to work daily.
His V now has passed 40,000 km.
He rode over about 500 km with his wife to install the HB frame and fix on the hardbags at my place. After this, he rode back home as working tomorrow. Here's his ride to share.
My humble of Joe's trusted V:
1. DIY chain luber which is a manual spuirt oil can which serves him superbly. The oil nipple spuirts at the rear sprocket as like the scottoiler.
2. DIY engine guard plus footrest
3. DIY topcase frame which could be used with HB hardbags.
