Wink Auxillary Lights

Living in the Philippines the Versys X300 is the perfect bike. However, the roads and off roads are not lit very well at all.

I installed the OEM Crashbars for the X300 and I was wondering if anyone can recommend the OEM Auxillary lights for Lighting up the dark roads or are there other Aux Lights that work better and can be mounted easy on these crashbars??

I have never been able to find what the specs are for the OEM Aux Lights with regards to Lumens or type of Aux light. Is it a flood, spot or beam light or How many meters does it light up in front of you?? At $400USD you would think that Kawa would make that kind of Information available.

Thanks!

I think, from memory of a YouTube comment, that the Kawasaki Aux lights are 12w total draw for both and are floods, lighting up a wide area as opposed to narrow beam spots. I believe the YouTube originator commented that they were made by PIAA.

This is very similar to what I have. They are fantastically bright and relatively cheap for all the light they produce. I purchased aftermarket mounts specific to the Versys model I have to mount them. Be sure to purchase lights with a narrow or spot beam pattern and not a wide or flood beam pattern if you want long distance illumination. You can simply wire these into your high beam circuit with no extra switches. Beware of exceptionally cheap aux lights ($20-30 per pair) as they use cheaper LEDs that do not produce much light. These produce 7000lm per pair which in comparison to your high beam at 1200lm, is a lot of light.

I have the Kawa aux light, they where part of the package that I purchased. These are my first aux lights so I don't have a comparison. But they are very broad and don't go very far. They are described as fog lights. So If reach is what you need this might not be for you. But I do love them.

I appreciate the feedback. I think the OEM Fog Lights from Kawa look good but at $400 if they only light the immediate area I would rather spend that money on Beam Spot lights from Denali.

The Trioptic D2 seems to be a very good light and I can get a mounting bracket for my Kawa Crash Bar.
