Thought I'd give the cheap lights a try for the price they are, all the others are bonkers money. Got a Denali mounting bracket off ebay for £30. I'm pretty impressed with them, I wasn't going to wire them up because I just wanted them for the look but the horn was right next to them so I just picked a feed up of that and fitted the switch on the bars and earthed it on the frame, nice and neat no wires in sight.

Look like the same ones I have , mine have been on 18 months now and are still working fine . The paint has started to peel and flake off the thin metal " guards" . But for that money who's bothered  :152:

Had these on my Tiger for a couple of years now and great for the money. I made my own brackets so the whole job was about 15 quid. Just one problem though - don't know about yours but mine are three phase. The problems I had come from bike stalls to a faulty connection causing the lights to jump to the next phase. Settings 1 and 2 are no problem but phase 3 is flashing. Came up the motorway for about 20 miles with them on this setting wondering why cars were pulling over. Was nearly home before I  spotted my reflection in a car in front of me!! Doh!!  :138:

Yeah they do have that silly 3 mode thing, I've watched a YouTube video about soldering a resistor in to stop it so I might do that. It might be handy for filtering though 🤣

I saw the youtube vids and whilst the lights look the same they don't all have the the same circuit boards and I never found the vid that showed you how to alter mine. I'm also not sure that its legal to have them on flash mode. In the finish I did actually change them for single phase lights that I'm very pleased with. I do prefer the look of Jakm15's though.

I have those but found you can get the 2 phase ones so don't need to worry about the flashing. what bracket have you used? Mine just hang down from the screen bolts but like the under slung one looks more substantial
Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.
