    Air intake and lights mod

    Hi Guys, looking for feedback on this project, I redesigned the faux intakes at the sides of the tank to house an Aux light fixture, its still in prototype phase and I am looking for your ideas and input. I 3D scanned the original covers and used solid-works to mod the design, the prototype is abs printed, the final will be in Carbon Fiber. the picture shows one side only for comparison. if there is enough interest in this I may be able make a bunch.

    How about a view from the side? Aux fuel tank would be more useful.

    Welcome to the forum Sivan.
    I'll watch your project with some interest just because it's a project but please be aware that I'm not a bike "night" guy.

    Tripage sells inserts for the 14-16 models that fit inside the faux scoops and you can install LED’s in these inserts. IMO, those are way too bulky/blocky and ruin the lines of the bike. Just sayin....

    I like it and am waiting to see how it looks with lights installed.

    I like the idea. I could use that for some well aimed aux lights; thinking flood pattern for some peripheral "comfort lighting" (as BD calls that zone.) Would be more useful than lights just for visibility. Keep us updated.

    Agree with jj, the scoops look like you would have room for some real aux lights and not just decorations. Side view is nice

    Any updates? More light is always better.

    Abit more done, aluminum bracket holds the light to the bike frame. Now on to wireing and a screen over the opening.
