I am wondering if there is a way to slot the fender to mount them, looks like TNTCC did just that...

Have any pics from the underside of the fender?

TNT- How did you mount those in your fenders?

I made my own fillers, cut slots for 10" rods and added bead rolls to either side. Tacked a flange to the back side and used 3M tape and a zip tie as insurance.

I'm outside of Keyser, WV. That bike is currently living in Russia. I'll look and see if I have any pics of the back side and post if so.

I have them as well, brake only. Very happy, but i would like to use them as turn also.

TNT, how did you wire them for brake/turn? I was told they would only work as run/turn/brake (with my controller), or either brake or turn. I don't want them as running lights.

I have a set on my 11SG and they are simple and sweet!!I ( brake and turn light option) brought some trip pieces from home depo and 3m tape and absolutely no issues!!! This is how Custom Dynamics advises to install them and BOOM SWEEEEEEET!!!! I must add that the customer service from custom dynamics is as great as there products1!!!!!

If I remember correctly I used Custom Dynamics Dual converters that set them as dual intensity. I'll look for my wiring schematc and post if different.

Cracks me up you asked about these Bill.

I had just ordered the 14" rods from CD when this thread was posted. I'm having intermittent problems with my glassed-in taillights and I'm going to stick these between the fender and bags until I figure out how to fix the others. Whatever I go with in the future, they are going to be repairable.

Since I've been debugging my lights for a month now, I'm intimately familiar with the wiring. I'll post a thread on wiring dual-intensity LEDs. (I know, Slothy's diagrams are a tough act to follow... I'll do my best)

Never mind - Custom Dynamics already provides the information for any combination
