Off work over Christmas and had enough of sitting around eating chocolate. Should have had a tidy up in the garden but the garage gremlins allways seems to say the garden can wait, so off to the garage it was.
I had previously fitted some small LED running lights on to the sides of the radiator with brackets stuck on with double sided tape but these would get loose when the rad got hot and they also got some condensation inside so I thought have a look on the net to see what I could find.
Amongst others I found " bikevis bullets " as others have used.
I liked the look of these but could not really find a good place on the bike to fit them.
I noticed that they used a T10 hi power LED bulb in their plastic bullet housing so I thought why not mount a couple of these bulbs each side in the radiator end shrouds, cheap and neat and in this position keeps the lamps quite wide apart. The pictures do not do them justice, they are ruddy blight and I could have just used one each side but went a bit over the top and used two.
There is more room to drill them than I first thought and they are held in by friction fit and a bit of dense foam and duct tape.
I did take the bulbs apart and superglued the led and alloy cap on to make sure water is kept out and then soldered the leads on and covered with heat shrink.
