Hyper - Lites

Hello gentlemen, and ladies.
I was fortunate enough to be able to visit the States at the end of last year and had a very pleasant holiday in Scottsdale, Arizona. I visited the local dealer whilst there and bought a pair of white Hyper - Lites from the very helpful staff. I'd just gone in to look at the bikes as I didn't have access to one while I was there. Great shame.
I'm now back in the UK and I would like to fit them.
Are there any members out there who have already done this and if so, where have you fitted them on the LT? There are only a few places on the front where they would 'naturally' go, but any thoughts/ideas would be helpful before I start.
I say I, but I'll have them fitted by my dealer as I have a handful of thumbs when it comes to DIY maintainance. The likelihood is that he won't have done this before, as I've never seen them for sale here in the land of cold and wet. Pity really, as they seem like a good idea to me...unless anyone else knows different!
All ideas gratefully received.
Thanks

Re: Hyper - Lites

If you have pre-05 model LT, you can fit them in the air holes below head light.

Re: Hyper - Lites

Hi Matt,
Thanks for the reply.
You're right, they'd be perfect, but I have the later model, so no-go there, I'm afraid.
Thanks for the thought, though.
I have a few more weeks of winter to figure it out. We're in for a cold snap next week.
I guess you don't have that problem in Arizona. We really enjoyed our time there and found everyone we met to be most friendly and helpful.
Laurence
