Led lights on atv

Recommended Posts

I'm going to add some extra lighting to my wheeler.  Looking for ideas from others who have them.  Adding them for better vision on the ice at night.  Want to add one on the rear also for packing up in the dark.

I should have been more specific.  Want to add LEDs like a light bar or individual ones that i can move and point in other directions.  Not going to change headlight or tailight bulbs

Will see if my FB photos will post. I added a 12" bar to front of my foreman last year. Where the winch would go. Fit great! I got it at amaz. along with a harness with lighted switch, two relays and two leads. One I used for the light bar and the other for heated grips.


I thought I posted some pics here, but I guess maybe not. Here are a couple links showing pics, but they are not great.


I think having it higher might help, but it really does help quite a bit - I put it in the winch slot because I don't have/need a winch and I wanted the light protected from "bumps" ;) . the bar I got had both flood and spot type lights in it, but doing it over I would try to get more spot light type aim. I also got another harness and two smaller square lights for the back of my rack, like you want to do, but I have not added them yet. 


The harness/relays were easy to install and connect, hardest part was routing it through the plastic and tight spaces on chassis. Be careful if doing it in the cold, I did it in the summer/fall. If I recall I used waterproof connectors so I can fairly easily swap out the light bar for a winch should I need to, and just use the same harness (50 or 60 amp relay I think, or maybe more...). I mounted a steel angle iron to the light mounts and then used U bolts to mount the angle to the bike frame. Worked great and solid and looks like stock. Each relay is connected to the battery, so it can get tight in that area as well. Just need to get creative on how to route things.


In order for my grips to be ON I need to have the light bar on, since I used the same switch, but that is good because I want to be sure I turn the grips off when bike is off so batt doesn't drain. The switch is lighted too, so if I forget I really am dumb ;)


edit oh yeah, this is my Pack Mule, ha! or Sanford and Son atv ;) I jsut added that front box in front of my auger, and the rear rack hold two otter cases and that highest frame folds down to hold an open otter case to get rods out easier without bending over. One side hold three rods for short travel and the other holds a chisel, big dipper and hook-out/jawspreader for easy access! I take it off in the summer. Too much junk I spose, but it sure is handy, as I can take everything and get at each item without moving anything to get at it :) and room for a cooler, of course! ha!






Here is before photo,,,

    • Anyone here have any experience with keeping and using pigeons, especially homers, for dog training?   I have an almost 2 year old Brittany that has not even been out hunting yet.... Last fall he was pretty young yet plus I had some health issues that kept me unable to walk around the woods or fields.   I'm not trying to turn my dog into some kind of world champion hunter or anything. I just want to be able to spend more time, all year long as opposed to only hunting season,  doing the thing he loves to do the most. We already have a great time on a daily basis playing an endless game of fetch and he is the most prolific tennis ball catcher (after one bounce) that I have ever seen. He also spends his days chasing rabbits, birds and squirrels in our fenced in yard along with lounging in his very own pool on hot days. He is trained to do all the normal things like sit, lay, shake, come, etc and I have no doubt that he has lots of natural hunting instinct so this seems to be where the progression of his training should head.   I do live in town but as long as I'm not keeping dozens of birds at one time, I don't think it will be an issue. I will check with the city before proceeding though. I'm thinking of getting about 6 homing pigeon squeakers and keeping them in a hutch in my yard. Is there any problem with the birds being in the same yard as the dog?   I'm thinking I could go out to the country on any given day and plant a few birds for my dog to sniff out. I have access to private property to do this on but I am wondering, is it legal to do this on wildlife management areas? I think I recall that after a certain date it is OK to train dogs?   Anyone else do this? Any advice?

    • So what's better? I suppose you are going to say Coors light or Miller lite?

    • You want to read High Speed 1 at pins 6 and 14 of the DLC. HS CAN 2 is on pins 3&11. Some fords have Medium Speed CAN on pins 3&11. Keep this in mind when shopping for your reader.
