Re: Driving light brackets

Don't have them, but they mount up under the front headlight to the side of the fairing. If you look there you will see the area I'm talking about.

Here is the link to the mfg http://www.ezymount.com/kits/ezymount_k1200lt.htm

Re: Driving light brackets

Here is what they look like on the LT!!

Great little brakets, and hold the PIAA's perfectly in place.

I have these lights and mounts also and they are very neat, but I have one problem. Mine vibrate a lot at idle and rattle annoyingly. Once underway the noise goes away, but it is really annoying at idle. It took me a while to figure out what it was, but then one day I got looking around while the LT was idling and both lights were vibrating to beat the band.

Anyone else have this problem? Anyone find a good solution? I tried putting some foam between my lights and the fairing, but that didn't help much.

Voyager;

I put some little round carpet pads ( around 1" dia) which has some sticky tape on the bottom and slid them between the light frame and the side of the braket. This stops the vibrating noise and helps stop the shaking. I had only one shake at idle.

Here is a picture of the pads.

Bowdon

Just to be sure, you mean between the chrome body of the light itself and the aluminum light mount bracket? Or do you mean between the aluminum bracket and the fairing?

Thanks.

Between the chrome on the light and the braket, not the faring.

Worked for me.

Here is a picture of one light with the pad.

Good luck!

I'll give it a try. Looks like a clever solution.
