Good job Steve, is there room on top to mount the lights. That's why I changed my mind about the givi mount when I saw pictures of lights higher up on the forum I thought they looked better to me, personnel preference obviously.  :047:

No room on top the way I've made it but with some tweeking of the design I could mount lights higher but they would be further out. The sticky-out bits from the mounting section would have to be so much longer to allow an upward bend and then another bend to get them horizontal. Without making the brackets extra wide I think they would wobble way too much using the alloy I have. Steel plate would over come that of course.

Lights lit up  :152:

Yep, always a good feeling when something you've knocked up on your bench actually works OK.

Sump guards, pannier mounting plates & light bars for BMW F650 (twin)/F800GS, Honda Transalps & XRV50 Africa Twins, Yamaha XT/XTZ 660 to name a few machines that I've "bodged" stuff for  :001:
