    Can't help you there but just to say that I do have them fitted (by my Ducati dealer) and they are really good - you will appreciate them for sure

    Ditto from me.

    My dealer fitted them and they are a great safety asset in my opinion.

    I commute into London and feel much safer when filtering thru traffic as the spotlights are very bright and anything to help those dozy cagers see you has got to be a good thing   :169: :028: However riding a Ducati, they probably hear me coming first  :007:

    Thanks for the responses, is there any chance you could take some photos for me of how they are mounted?

    ...and here is my configuration (in attachments) as fitted to the Ducati crash bars. I guess the real problem is not the attachment but the wiring especially if one intends to wire it into the Fog button . Running the cables around the fork and headstock area needs a a bit of prior planning I am guessing as there is quite a bit of movement in that area when bars are turned left and right

    I have now ordered the correct set from my dealer who says they will need to be activated by the dealer, surely that can't be right, the button is already on the handlebars?
