    Lightbulb TW200 Auxiliary LED Light Mounts

    Here's something I've been working on for the TW200, a pair of auxiliary LED light mounts.

    The photo shows 3D printed plastic prototypes which aren't really road worthy. The end product will be 1/8" stainless steel.

    More to come soon!

    I've loved the mount you made for the klr650 - how do these mount up? I can't quite tell from the pic...

    Lower triple clamp bolts appear to attach the new black prototype light brackets. Brackets seem to be angles bent at ~45 degrees.

    Fred, is correct. They attach at the lower triple clamp bolts. Each bracket has two bends.

    I like the concept and the flexibility that it can add for additional do-dads. One thought, can you integrate some strap hooks into the sides for tie down points?

    I looked at adding a tie-down point in the downward direction and it looked like a fatigue crack waiting to happen. Adding the tie-down in the outboard direction would require removing the reflectors which makes me a bit uneasy.

    Just a thought about the removal of the reflectors on the fork. I saw a member here, can't remember who, who had orange reflector tape on each side of the headlight cowling. I have removed my reflectors as they seemed to catch a lot of bushes, but the reflector tape got me thinking. Of course, I don't know the legalities of the reflector tape replacing the actual reflectors. Maybe the "real" reflectors could be repositioned somewhere else up front thus allowing your tie-down points on said lights.

    Admiral, take a look at my bike out in your garage. I have 3m reflector tape on the forks because I used the reflector brackets.

    Cool. Look forward to your updates.

    When I first got my TW, my first and only motorcycle, I lost control on gravel and slid into an out building and snagged the reflector which almost sent me flying and bent the mount backwards. Disliking the reflectors and risk they posed ( how ironic is that) I turned them around to point backwards. I eventually got my front rack and ditched the reflectors.
