Lights and Jpegs

I have Micro DE's installed under the nose and was really wanting to add a second set under the tip overs, but have jpegs installed. There looks like there is room to install the DE's there as well, can anyone confirm that this would work without looking like a complete screwup?

There is a small amount of space between the jpegs and the side of the bike and I was thinking thats where I want them...totally hidden in there and not sticking out like a baja light.

Just make sure they're tucked in closely to the bike. You don't want them getting damaged as well should the beast tip over. My Raster-Mount Motolights don't even touch when the bike's on it's side.

I’ll second that for the Raster Mount MotoLights. They add a great “triangulation” light pattern and add a good bit of light at night even with my HID. Someone at STC said they didn’t see them on the MotoLights web site, but if you call them they will set you up.

I am wanting to install a second set of Micro DE's under the tip overs, not motolights. Am I understanding correctly that the raster mount is only for motolights?

My point was that you need to copy the placement...not that you should use Raster-Mounts.

Just like Joe said, make sure your lights are close enough since you don't want them to be your new tip over protectors. If you run out of space / ideas here is one more J-Peg / fog light combination.

This needs some DIY skills but still it is no rocket science.
The bike has been laying down twice and both the lights and J-Pegs have survived (thanks to the J-Peg stopper which can be seen in picture #4).

Gotcha...and a good point it is Sir!

Looks like I will have to fab a bracket of some sort to make it work.
