Hi. Maybe it's stupid, but I'd like to add some brightness on the lighting of my SV1000. Possibly some very tiny fog lights on the forks mounted low. I'm having a hell of a time finding anything under 2 inches in diameter. Any suggestions or thoughts?

Thanks...

I know there are some european kits for this... additionally, there are some chin spoilers available that have integrated lights in them... Have you upgraded your stock bulb yet?

Let me see what else I can find for ya.

Cool links guys. Thanks. I'm really likeing the little 2 inch led running lights by piaa http://store.yahoo.com/twincamtech/pi002turlblu.html Nudist, the how too thread is pretty cool.

Any thoughts on wireing? Straight to the battery or would you tap the headlight power?

Fuses are a nice thing, as well, especially when you dump 250$ on some lights.

I would surely run off the battery with a fuse, and an on/off switch. With the power that some of these light require, I would also think of investing in a better battery, perhap Optima or something of the sort...Or doing a battery tender once or more a week.
