Aux lights

Well I got my $15 walmart 55w halogens mounted up on my homemade brackets. I mounted them on my Motech crash bars just a little in front of the radiator. It only took me 3 10A fuses to get the relay wired right. I set them up as cornering lights and have them wired to come on with the low beam so they are always on, which should help my daytime visibility. I'll try to get pics up tomorrow. I still need to get 3 10A fuses to put back in and put the fairings on.

Love the extra side lights.

Can't find anywhere in the UK, where the lights are that cheap!

We have Asda which is part of the Walmart family! but they do not sell them.

Anyone in the UK have any idear where I can get a pair??


Thanks

Switches

Would this switch work for aux lights? How about heated handgrips?

Looks just like the one I used for my lights. Need to use a relay though.
