View Full Version : R12RT Auxillary Lights

Looking for pictures of what some of you have done to add auxillary lighting to the new RT. I'm not unhappy with the high beam but thinking the low beam could use a little help with some fog or driving lights.

Check out their website and go to Photo Gallery they have a R1200RT with them on.
Easy to install and the brushed aluminum matches the front forks.

Not a clue how to post a photo on this site, but I have them on my R1200RT and appreciate them.
CycleGadgets is a good source, and has their own pics.

If you like the PIAA lights, and you don't want them just for the high-beam, then you should install a driving light controller. The guys at KRISS have a great one which will make the lights legal for running lights (low beam).

Motolights, without a doubt. Just had both low beams burn out within a day of each other, on a long trip, with some night riding. Motolights saved the day. Fortunately I was with other riders and could follow them at night and use their headlights as well as my Motolights. Definite safety feature for an RT due to the difficulty changing the low beam bulbs.
If you have never changed the low beam bulbs on an RT1200, don't try it the first time out on the road, it is a Bit&$h.
