Installing New Aux Lights on the V-Strom

I’ve wanted to put some aux lights on my V-Strom almost immediately after I bought it but never did.  I wanted them not only because they are useful when it’s dark or when there is limited visibility, but also because on a bike you want to be seen.  Being seen is of utmost importance and I’m all about making sure that everyone else on the street can see me coming.  What I didn’t want was to spend a fortune on getting some new lights.

Of course, I spent a fair bit of time on the internet looking for a good deal on some LED lights.  And I came across a pair of LightFox LED lights for $20!  For the pair!  Of course, this was worth the risk of seeing if these are any good.  Of course when I got them I realized that I need a wireing kit and some mounting brackets.  So those needed to be order.

About $100 later I had everything that I needed to install my lights on my V-Strom.  I did
the install in 2 parts.  Part one was the actual mounting of the lights and this was done while I was waiting for the brackets and mounting harness.


Part 2 of course was the wiring of the lights on the bike.  And with the harness it was a snap.  It took about 30 minutes or so. Hardest part was figuring out where to run the actual wires.  Once done it was nice and easy.

Below I have provided links to all the parts that you can order via or  as well as part 1 and part 2 of the videos. (US)
