PostSubject: Mounting Bar for Fog/Spot/Driving Lights for Honda SilverWing   Mon Jun 29, 2009 3:16 pm

Hello,
I made 3 of these the first run and they sold out very fast. If you missed your chance to pick up one of these great light mounting bars for your SWing, here's your opportunity. Light Mounting Bar Places the lights at just the right hight from the street surface 29" centered. No drilling required and mounts to the scooter using the 2 lower Honda Fairing bolts so it's easy to install. Mount bar is made of 1/8" thick x 1" steel plate and is of welded construction. Finish is a generious coating of Rust-Oleum High Gloss Black epoxy enamel that is a very durable protective finish. Light mounting holes are 1/4" (6mm)

Price is $45.00 USD with a $6.00 USD shipping (Priority Mail for U.S.) or $13.00 USD (first class international).

If interested please send me a PM and I will send you the ordering information.







Sorry but light assemblies are not included with this Light mounting bar.

Thank You,

DennisB

Hi, Dennis,
Thank you for your PM with details and the information about the lights.

I thought I'd post my reply here so you don't have to keep repeating yourself in PMs. Smile

The lights you use look great - thanks for the link.
There doesn't seem to be a price, though.
I looked elsewhere for a rough guide - $30/$40 - is that each or per pair?

Thanks.

Hi Mike,

You should be able to get these lights for under $ 17.00 USD a pair.

If not let me know and I will get them for you and ship them to you. I can buy these at a store called Wal-Mart under a different part number.

Dennis,

I thought that I saw somewhere on this forum the model number for the illustrated auxiliary lights that you used with your mounting bar. I now cannot find them.

Would you please post again the model number for the WalMart lights used? Also, what was the wattage of a single light or the combination?

Incidentally, elsewhere on this forum you provide a link to obtaining relays for the lights. When I checked the Ebay link, the result was "no longer listed." Do you have a part number and supplier for these relays?

Thanks for all the good information and your engineering expertise.

Hi Leon,

The Wal-Mart Optronics Model QH-87CD Halogen Driving Lights. work great and don't brake the bank.

What I did was to do a little looking around and found this web sight that has some great prices on the SPOT light bulbs. These fit the Wal-Mart Lights and work very well. Q50MR16/CG/47/10 50 Watt, Narrow 10 degree bulb. Manufacturer's Part #: 18001

I suck at wiring; is there a thread on the forum that provides details of wiring fog/spot/driving lights? I apparently suck at writing search queries too...

This first picture is the wiring that is needed under the left rear side cover (with relay).



The second picture is wiring front lights with lighted switch.

Hi BlackFly,

Cost of international shipping of the light bar is $13.50 USD

$45.00 USD for the light bar. (I include some extra things with the bar).
$13.50 USD for the International shipping (First class mail)
$58.50 USD Total, shipped to your front door.

Thank You.

Dennis

P.S. The extra stuff is: New mounting screws, Spacers (per year), Wire Covers, and a new rocker switch. All of this makes the installation look great and makes it easy to do.

I have this light bar on my Swing. Like everything Dennis makes, it fits and works perfectly. I used the WallyWorld lights and they make a huge difference in being able to see and be seen. The switch Dennis includes fits in the bar cover nicely. All in all, a great upgrade.

Hi Cathy, I could not aford my own enternet connection any longer so I'm on a wire less connection off my niebors interent connection.

I will drive over to Wal-Mart and let you know what the price is for the Optronics lights and if they still carry them.

If you want my old black Optronics lights, I can send them to you. just pay for the shipping.

I can pay you for your old ones. Name a price and how much the shipping will cost and I will send you anothe check. You don't need to go to walmart to look for me. But, thanks for offering. I sent the check for the lightbar on Friday. You can ship everything together if that's ok with you.

Thanks,

Hi Roadrunner,

Yes, you can mount to the bottom. If you have the lower power draw LED type bulbs installed, you can run 4 up lights. Now that would be somthing to see.

Cathy, Here is the a thread to the Optronicts lights:
http://optronicsinc.com/competition-new.html?height=600&width=800

I'll need to check on what the cost is for the QH-12IT lights. I just do not think they are that much.

Hi Cathy,

Looks like another $20.00 and I will send the black Optronics lights with new MR16, 50W bulbs installed. A spare black housing and bezel, a Optronics install kit, and your light bar that you all ready paid for and ship it all USPS Priority Mail to you.

Does that sound OK to you?

Hi Dennis,

Received your light bar and lights today. Great job on the light bar, a quality piece of work. You are a real craftsman. Bob is going to be busy as soon as the weather gets better. The garage is not heated but we are expecting a warm up this week. I will assist him where I can. Maybe, I'll learn something.

Anyone, on this forum who is considering driving lights Dennis makes a custom light bar for the swing. See picture at the top of page one in this post. I highly recommend it.

Thanks again,

Cathy

Hi Cathy,

It's always fun installing new gadgets on the Swing. One of the things I recommend is the installation of a relay with the lights. That way your new Driving lights will turn off when you turn off your scooter.

Here's an EBay thread to a relay that works very well for this install:

I have quite a few of Dennis' items and have found every one to be of exceptional design and quality. I agree with Dennis about the relay for the lights. I picked up the trigger voltage for the relay from the low beam power wire. This gives you the advantage of keyed on and off as well as having them cut off during engine start. By wiring the rocker switch Dennis provides in series with this wire, you have the ability to manually shut off the lights if desired.

Dennis, Are you still making the mounting bar for the driving lights? If so, let me know your price and how to order. Wendell Thompson from Owensboro bought this from you in 2009 and his looked good. Going to be riding in northern Arkansas this summer. Thanks

I can attest to anyone who does not have one of Dennis's light bar's, you are only fooling yourselves... I have had one on my Swing for a long time
with the Wal-Mart driving lights as shown and I am positive they have
saved me from a possible accident numerous times. People can see you
when you have them on! Plus they really light up the road. Thank you again Dennis. I enjoy them and they are truly one of the best adds I have made to my Swing.

when you have them on! Plus they really light up the road. Thank you again Dennis. I enjoy them and they are truly one of the best adds I have made to my Swing.

Yes but look at it another way, you're in the state of Nebraska which has an area of 77,334 sq mi with a population density of 24.0/ sq mi. In comparison I live in the much smaller English rural county of North Yorkshire which has an area of only 3,341 sq mi but the population density is 320/ sq mi. So there's a lot more road traffic to contend with here, yet I don't feel any need to fit extra lights to get around.

Thanks Dave. When you live in the rural county, extra lights up front sure helps in spotting deer, bear and their eye shine next to the road at night. Shocked

They do light up the road so you can see . . .but. . .more than that when you are in on-coming traffic, they can see you coming and are not as apt to turn in front of you because of your low profile. Safety!

On the matter of deer, I find the creatures so unpredictable they can turn back on themselves in a flash.

Best cure for avoiding them I found is to reduce speed and give yourself time to spot the tell tale orange eyes.

I have had a few close shaves this year and it's only the 15th!!!!!

Back to lights, lighting, I did see a 'real' bike last month with a light bar and additional lights at the front. It did stick out from the other traffic. For me it was the triangular configuration rather than the actual illumination.

The extra lights like Dennis has are very good for additional light at night but for protection from oncoming cars turning in front of you I like headlight modulators here in North America. The variation in light output really catches people's attention. Not to mention they reduce the load on the electrical system and increase headlight bulb life.
A pair of riding lights mounted on Dennis' light bars and a modulator would be a great addition to any SW.
