    Unfortunately, I don't have them myself, but I have seen them mounted in two spots.

    Drilled into the Roundels (yuck) and attached to the "fork legs" on the front axel somehow.

    Thanks for the reply. I have talked to Duncan at his shop and having seen both placements you mentioned, I probably will go with a mounting bracket. Not sure where yet?

    I didn't spring for the Piaa lights, just some cheap ones from the local parts store. I made a bracket that spans between the sides of the fairing under the oil cooler and mounted the lights at the oute edges.

    I can't wait to retire and have a fixed income. The one I have now is always broke.

    Have you Seen Piaa's mounted on Martin Fabrication Brackets?
    Cyclegadgets.com has them for a R1100RS

    I'm running Martin brackets on a RT with the 1100's they fill in the weak spots of the low beam and I'm not get flashed by oncoming traffic.
