Yes, you will need custom mounting brackets to mimick what Messenger 13 has, but I am sure someone on this list can come up with something....grin.
I have fork mount Motolights (calipers weren't available yet) on my 2001 LT.
I also have PIAA 1100XX mounted in the cowling.
I switched to the Clearwater Glendas on my 2009 R1200GS Adventure.
3 high performance LED bulbs per light; 15W draw per light.
30W per set versus 55W per light (110W total) for the Motolights.
Yes, I could have ordered the Motolights w/LEDs,
but wanted to test the quality of the Glendas.
Excellent quality and workmanship.
Great product support and follow up.
A point of consideration on light placement:
Be careful not to obscure your turn signals by the placement of your auxiliary lights.
