Step 3: Mounting The Lights

Fender Mount Overview:


detailed diagrams on next page


•  One side at a time, remove both fender bolts. Be sure to keep fender 
from hanging in a fashion that damages it. Use a wire tie or piece of wire 
to hold the fender until you are ready to install the new bolts. Inspect the 
female threads on the brackets for dirt or foreign substance. If possible, 
use compressed air (wear protective glasses) or small bottle brush to 
clean the threads.

•  Pre-assemble the lights, mounting bracket, shoulder washers (if 
needed) and spacers with new bolts. Add 1 or 2 plastic washers to 
shoulder washer to make up difference in thickness of front fender if 

•  Gently screw all bolts in hand tight. Inspect the bolt length and spacer 
alignment before tightening the bolts. Assembly will resemble one of the 
diagrams below depending on model.

•  The mounting bracket can be mounted facing down (shown) or up to 
give the desired adjustability range.

Step 4: Mounting The Volume Control Knob

Mounting The Volume Control Knob: 

(Bar Mount)

•  Mount the Volume Control Knob to handlebar by using supplied 
bracket and bolt to the existing controls.

•  Route wires from lights and volume control knob bracket to area 
under left side of forks. Connections can be made here and be kept 

•  Hint for High Vibration installations:

 To keep the Volume Control Knob from 

rotating itself under high vibration, put a dab of silicone adhesive under the knob 
and let it dry. Then push the rubber knob back on. The friction of the glue under 
the knob will keep it in place.

Step 5: Wiring

Wire Routing:

•  Be sure to route wires so that they cannot become tangled or caught 
in either a suspension part or steering part. Check movement of both 
steering and suspension before riding the bike.
•  It is sometimes helpful to follow existing wire routing.


•  Main power needs to be connected to a switched hot. This means one 
that turns off with the key. An Auxiliary hot can be used as an alternative. 
Using the supplied Posi-twist connectors, connect the wires according 
to the accompanying color wire diagram. Attach ground lug to ground 
on frame tab or other suitable location. Be sure not use a Low beam 
headlight wire on H4 headlight bikes or else the lights will shut off when

Step 5: Wiring 


the high beam is activated.
•  Find a good solid ground point for the black wire terminal ring.
•  Use a Posi-twist to connect the green wire from the volume control knob 
to the two green wires from the lights (3 wires).
•  Use a Posi-twist to connect red wire from the fuse holder to the red 
wires from lights and volume control knob (4 wires)
•  Connect ground/black wire to black wires from lights and volume control 
knob. (4 wires)
•  If you would like to use the high beam feature (recommended), use a 
Posi-tap to connect the white wire from the volume control knob to the 
High Beam headlight hot lead (+). This will be on only when the high 
beam is illuminated.
