Hyperlites

I have another question. I am thinking about getting Hyperlite driving lights. What I need to know is will my wiring support the lights if I wire them into my low beam. According to Hyperlites they only draw about 1/4 amp. You can get them with a switch or just the lights. According to them you don't have to buy more than you need. Will it be ok to do it that way

Re: Hyperlites

Yes they don't draw a lot of current so you won't stress the wiring.

Re: Hyperlites

Am I confused? Please help me understand why you would wire HyperLites into your low beam... HyperLites are for brake/turn and wire into that (those) circuit(s).

Do you mean MotoLights, the caliper-mounted auxiliary lights?

They (and other companies) also make white LED lights for front conspicuity, turn signals, etc.

Re: Hyperlites

You should consider the Photon Blasters. I have a riding buddy who has the HID lights and motolight -- when he was behind me on the way to Sedalia, his lights blended in to everyone else's. Get high intensity amber lights. They really do a great job at getting someone's attention.
