LED driving lights for 2014 650

Does anyone know if the 2015 OEM lights mount on a14? Is there a mounting bar under headlight in the same place? https://www.kawasaki.com/Accessories...BFFA/999940487

Other (non home made) options include the SW motech SW-MOTECH Auxiliary Light Mount Kawasaki Versys 650 2010-2015 - RevZilla and the Denali Denali Auxiliary Light Mount Kawasaki Versys 650 2010-2014 - RevZilla

Thanks

I just added the Denali mounts from RevZilla. They are easy to mount and stout as hell. Also significantly cheaper than the stockers. You can then add any light you want. I mounted an ole set of Hella FF50's that I am using just as DRL's not spots or fogs and replaced the H7 bulb with an LED aftermarket bulb.

I'm 99% certain that the new 2015 LED light bar won't fit the 2010-2014 model. The 2015 has a horizontal bar under the nose plastics which isn't there on the older model. The lights are made by PIAA and are their reflector facing technology led range.
They are an expensive option on the mark 3 , but mine came as part of the deal when I bought the bike in November. They are brilliant lights though throw a really good spread of light on the road

I just finished up installing the Mondomotos MM10s. Could not be happier. Check out this thread for details: http://www.kawasakiversys.com/forums...ce-please.html

(Thanks again to Onewizard for the great info and advice!)

Due to a near miss from a driver pulling out on me, I decided I needed to be more ‘visible’. If I did this right, there should be pictures of my ‘fix’ here (the 'sunset' picture was an upload test).

Based on a “webBikeWorld” review (OZ LED Mini Trail Lights Review - webBikeWorld), I selected the “OZ” lights - - sort of. As “wBW” suggested, these lights are offered by multiple sources under different brands. Instead of spending $49.50, I got them on “Amazon” for $22 under the “TMH” brand. Since “wBW” warned of a ‘sloppy’ two piece base, although it has been improved, I made it a one piece by gluing it with one of the many high strength bonding agents out there (black “Geocel” 4500 in this case).

Since my 2014 was prewired for accessories, I decided to use it. I just needed a relay. Rather than adapt some sort of standard 12V relay, I wanted to go with the “Kawasaki” part (an “Omron” 27002-1086) which is used on many bikes. I got one off of “Ebay” for $9, instead of paying about $30 at the Dealer. And, it worked fine.

Now, time for mounting. After considerable head scratching, I went with the mounting as shown in the photos. Thought this was the cleanest, simplest, and most attractive that still provided good function. I drilled small mounting holes in the plastic, but these can be easily hidden (black plastic fastner? Decal?) if the lights were ever removed. The plastic in this area is very solid. And, I’m not concerned about a bit of vibrating light because I think it contributes to making me more visible.

The wiring was straight forward. The connection/relay was hidden and held in place with a plastic zip-tie.
I’ll report in the future if there are any problems with this set-up.
