New Light Bar for my GSW

For my new R12GSW I made a light bar for my FV90 HID's and installed a PDM60 power distribution module. The light bar fits on the nose framework and being strong enough for the lights it will not be so strong to break the support in case of a fall.

The HID is still the best light out there in my opinion. I rely on it a lot for night riding in the West and the LED's still have a bit farther to go as far as total light output. The power draw is insignificant on the GS unlike my Vstrom which couldn't hold up to the draw.

Re: New Light Bar for my GSW

Nice !
I have a pair of PHID 4's patiently waiting for my 14 RTW .. Your FV 90 I know are similar to the 4's. I bought the last set of 4's FV had over 3 years ago.
I will also convert the HI/ LOW to HID, wish the RTW had the adaptive headlight.
