Add light that fit in the 2 holes underneath the nose ?

Hello.

I own an "old" LT (not a FL that comes with the additional light underneath the low beam).

I was wondering if there's any external high beam that fit into the 2 holes underneath the bulb ?

Cheers,

Pierre-Alain

Not for the pre-05 bikes. Some folks have mounted auxiliary PIAA lamps there and either slaved them to the high beam or put an external switch on them so that they can be run with either the low or high beams.

Aux lights in front fairing

I helped a friend install a set of oval lights in the two holes below the headlamp on his 03 LT. He picked em up at Wally World for about $22.00. They have a blue cast lens and look wonderful.
We picked up the 12 volts from the auxilary power connector on the right side. Just like the one on the drivers left except there's no connector in the fairing to plug it into.
We used a wire tap to tap into the hot wire. This wire is hot all the time so we ran this to a 30 amp relay, normally open contact, and mounted this on the cross bar behind the openings. We picked up the 12 volts for the coil from the running light wire. Got a ground on a bolt on the left side. Viola, when the key is on, the lights are on. Looks like it was made for it and man what a difference it made in the illumination. You could install a small off on switch in the coil side so they wouldn't be on all the time.

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

I hate to sound silly, but is there really a parts shop called "Wally World" like kr4mo said?

A bit of American pop trivia, which may not translate to those culturally-deprived outsiders. (Or are we the culturally-deprived ones? I can never remember. )

There was a 1983 film called National Lampoon's Vacation in which a bumbling Chevy Chase takes his family on a cross-country trip to the Wally World theme park. Chaos and hilarity ensues as everything goes wrong for your viewing enjoyment. That particular pop culture phrase has since been morphed into slang for WalMart.

There is a http://www.wallyscycleworld.com/ for discount aftermarket Harley parts, but beware of http://www.wallyworld.com/ as it is not family-friendly, and not at all what you might expect if you were looking for large discount retail stores.

Nope, just wished I had, like many of us here I suspect. The Ferrari was nice, but I preferred her in the pool . . .
