Does anyone make a kit specifically for the strada? All the kits i've seen seem to be universal - I'd really like to see a kit bespoke to this bike.

Does anyone know of one?

Best out there but just a side project so far. Search "Cree" and see what me and at least one other installed. Not the cleanest but bright as hell and waaaaay cheaper than the LED kits sold for enduro's and such.

I have a kit available still. Haven't been actively trying to sell it, but it's complete and ready for install.

Could you please let me know the price. I have a friend in US who could pay for it and carry it to Thailand for me next week if its available.

Thanks

those will do. we just need better brackets to mount them inboard instead of hanging off the radiator bolts or clipons

Calling kuksul08 - where are you?

Seriously - I'm thinking of mounting them on the forks - not as pretty but it would do the job.

What's up. The problem with fork mounting is clearance. You want to mount them on the frame part for stability, but due to the way our fork and fender moves there isn't much room. The place I chose it pretty optimal.

Not the prettiest but they're only about 2" square. I like the idea of fogs and they're hard to find, One of the problems with super bright white lights is that in fog and rain they'll blind you more than help you. The stock headlight is pretty good for down the road, these will light the edges.

They also sell this : H4 LED Headlight Rev2 - ADVmonster

which looks interesting.

Your set up is beautifully done - out of my price range sadly. But I think there's enough room right under the lower fork brace to mount a light as long as the clamp is not too wide.

Mine's not even that pricey. Maybe I can work with you! When it's all said and done you'll wish you got the legit setup anyway
