I Ride: 2013 Hyperstrada
Eliminating the on/off switch and/or dimmer knob was based on two conclusions after tens of thousands of miles of use of these Darla LED lights on another motorcycle.

1) Simple wiring is always best.

2) I never adjusted the brightness.

Why complicate something when unnecessary? Especially when the point of the Hyperstrada is simplicity. It's all about the ride.

The 1 to 4 SAE splitter allows me to power each Darla, and one power wire for my front of the bike electronics (GPS & Motochello entertainment/communication hub).

As you can see in the photo, there are fuses everywhere. You may also note that the wires to the front of the bike have been fished under the plastic, along with the surrounding woven wire protective cover.

Super easy. Super reliable. The SAE connectors allow me to make changes easily too.

I had always thought that there should be a way to mount lights off that bracket, I'm glad it was figured out for me!!

Thank you for your efforts!

Is it the D20 670 Fork kit from Clearwater?

Or so it looks. I'd call to make sure because it is easy and secure.

I prefer to not mess with forks because of even the smallest risk of damaging the fork tubes with compression or twist during a drop or fall.

A photo from this weekend. Impossible to ignore these fluorescent yellow lights because of the contrast with every other daytime running light.
