Hi
Thanks for your interest in the "front light"

They do not throw a beam and are "daylight running" lights, mainly to be seen, not to see !
Fitting is a bit fiddly, but if you download Honda's own fitting instructions all becomes clear, you just have to buy a couple of small brackets. They are wired into the lighting circuit and only come on with the ignition.
I bought them from ebay and paid about £35.00 , an awful lot cheaper than Honda ones, but I can't remember which site, though should be easy to find if you search "daytime running lights"
They are very bright ! worth fitting I think.
Good luck.

Not sure if anyone knows this or tried it it, but i recently bought a 2005 honda Varadero tall touring screen.. with a couple of slight modifications ie cuts for the mirror mounts and dremel out the lower slots for fixing , i got the screen to fit with little hassle..

Tried it out yesterday and it seems to work pretty well for me..

Thanks to post your experience with the Touratechs as am in the market for hand protectors (hoping to start the season early!). Would be useful to know what model you purchased, cost, how well they fit, color and how pleased you are (or not) with them. Much appreciated.

Hi again. Now i have tried out the touratech handguards and they work very well. I"am pleased and the wind doesent come on the hands as earlier. I have also put on power commander 5 and got it tuned in also. Big difference...i dont need to use gears as much as earlier and the tuning company said that earlier it took a lot of fuel even in 5th gear..now it is also fixed and more power...going to Norway on a biking tour in next month for about 9 days and it will be a great ride i hope. Take care.
