What is your purpose of the lights?
More visibility of other cars seing you, then mounted down on the front fender supports, forming a triangle with the headlight.
If they are for you to see better, then higher you mount them, the better they project down the road.
For the first gen SwMotech makes a nice mount by the turn signals. I did not want to mount by the signals personaly. For starters, they must be removed and then readjusted every time you remove the side plastics. Also, if you lay the bike down in either a slide, or tip over they will be destroyed.
Mine are mounted to my forks, directly under the tripple tree. Makes a nice triangle of light for being seen, but not skimming the ground like on the fender. They are protected from a tip over, and out of the way so they don't anoy me with more stuf up in the dash area.
I'm on my phone so I can't post a link, but search my name and " aux lights" for pictures of my setup and install.
