Was thinking maybe an LED light bar up there would look good, but I'll have to wait a while for that

But if you have the full folding windshield Will it open? So, if you live in cold or wet climates and ride in those conditions and you cannot open the windshield on those nice sunny days...

A trial fit would be required, but a unique location and a great idea for many either way!

The light in an open trail 50" bar with the open trail 2" bar mount. folding windshield will not work, but it never gets too cold down here in Texas anyway.
Also put a wetsounds stealth 6 on last night, was a little expensive but install couldn't have been easier and it sounds great!

Darledge,

We had two nights this week that temperatures dropped into the mid 30s one where we had a hard frost and snow about 70 miles north of here.

Precip: 10%

Saturday

Needless to say, we are having temperature swings from 82 with thunder storms to 32 degrees and clear next week. Last summer we had fewer than 7 days above 80 degrees but that was unnaturally cold.

Thanks, I was fixing the link..lol. It works great.. I'll try to get a picture at night some time this week. I wasn't 100% if it was going to be enough light.. also it looks mean with the light bar on at dusk!

I had it on my grizzly.. 215-albums9-picture324.jpg

It puts out MORE light than most people will ever need.. I recommend the location. I did cut a piece of weather treated 2x4 paint it black and mounted the light to the roof, through the 2x4 which is butted up against the roll bar.. reason for this is so it firm and won't bounce up and down on the semi- flexible roof. Once I mount the mirror you won't see the bracing..

It looks great from the front, and it's a smart move to reinforce the mounting point to reduce bouncing due to top flex!

We rip cut the 2x4, so it's really just a 2x2 in strip.. so it's pretty inconspicuous.

You might get away without the bracing.. I may later remove the strip and get 2 roll bar clamp mounts. Install them on the underside of the roof where the brace is and run the light bar bolts through the roof and bar clamps. It would serve the same purpose and look cleaner on the inside. The plan now is to add a full length mirror one that's installed you won't be able to see the wood brace.

The mirror.
