Aftermarket aux/fog lights

Hi all,
Iím looking for some alternatives to the Ducati fog lights. Factory ones look great, sounds like they integrate nicely too, but need a dealer to enable them. Pricing looks like £350+.
Has anyone got any aftermarket aux or fog lights? I like the extra visibility and road presence they give the bike, and generally like to drive with mine all the time. Not too pushed about having a separate button for them, Iíd almost rather wire them to come on by default.
Any suggestions?

Thanks!

Tom

    Look at my posting


    TOPIC: RUNNING LIGHTS  Murf46

     




    The leds from ebay cost less than £15.00.
    They are from a former bike and they were fitted to the multi 2 years ago still going strong.
    They are as bright as my mates factory units.

    Wire direct into your sidelights or GPS feed
    No switches required.

    Hope that helps

    Like I say why pay up to £350.00 for what is essentially the same thing

    I agree about the price. I decided to go for the factory lights as they were a gift from my employer.
    All I had to do was pay for fitting. I live 50 miles from 2 dealers. The first one where I had purchased my bike said they had had trouble fitting them in the past & quoted 4 hours at £100 per hour.  The other dealer said  2 hours at £78 per hour so I used them instead. When I went to pay the invoice they said ď only took an hourĒ and charged me £78. Oddly enough I will now be using the second dealer for my 2 year service in April.

    That's pretty awesome.  Honest mechanic/dealership!

    Clanger - which dealer location did you use and prefer ? Looks like I am near you (Gloucester) and have used the Bristol dealer in the past (where I bought the bike) so would be useful to know

    yes you are close to me. Tewkesbury. I also purchased my bike at Bristol. Sales team were most helpful and I had two escorted test rides. Iíve had no issues with the service and they have dropped my bike off foc a couple of times. Only issues Iíve had were over servicing pricing. Coventry seem really good. They are Ducati only. Made a good job of the lights so Iím going to try them for the two year service in April.

    Thanks Clanger  - so did they do that foc  pick-up and delivery for you on a standard service visit  ?  I ask as I have my 2 years service coming up in May and i find it a pain in the arse to waste the best part of a day going there and waiting

    I had them fit the ducati bars, lights and sat nav holder during my first service in 2017 and I guess I expected it to be a bit pricey but can't remember now how much it all was

    Did I possibly pass you on the A38 between Coombe Hill and Glos last weekend - I passed a red Multi Saturday arvo but not sure if it was a 950 or not

    Interesting how different dealers support customers with bikes in for service. My dealer, Ducati Leeds in Shipley, offer a free loan bike so I can drop my bike off for the day and ride home before collecting at the end of the day. That's very convenient for me and I enjoy getting a different bike to ride for a day.
