    I forgot about the driver for the LED's, I took a look at the light kit this morning and that turned on the bulb between my ears. I'll do some voltage testing while doing the installation of the plug and play setup and see if I can figure out how to keep the DRL's on with both the high beam and low beam lights.

    I spaced mine out like yours and it seems the mounting plate might be forcing out the side panel slightly..... In any event I forgot to order the the heat shields so I got creative and took a 2.5" holesaw to the blankoff plate along with a little grinding and it worked really well, and thenl I broke off the mounting tab on the second plate I was modifying, with that I just ordered two heat shields and when they are delivered I'll check and see if the mounting plate is rubbing against the side panel.

    Thanks for your install tips Donhy it helped make the job easier and better looking

    I just in stalled the ******* arc lights and was also surprised and disappointed about the gap around the lights. Otherwise a well-engineered kit. Guess iíll Get over it.

    I made spacers out of thick wall plastic tubing. They are 3/4" long and fit into the 3 recesses that the mounting bolts use. The result is the lights are moved forward enough that any gap is negligible. I even ordered a pair of heat shields and a doubt I will use them.
    If anyone is interested in the O.D. of that tubing, I'll post it.

    How did you get your Spyder to stick to the wall like that?

    Oh..........................never mind..............................it's a Spyder.

    I got the arc lights they seem to work really nice. And I definitely put a statement on the bike with the daytime running lights.

    Nice video SgtRay. Nice cases. What brand are the seats? They look to be real comfy.

    Anyone wanting a pair of F3 fog light heat shields, I find I don't need mine. Moving the lights forward doesn't leave any blank spaces.
    $20 to my PayPal and they are yours, including shipping. PM me.
