Been looking for an alternative to the Grote lights in the Uk for bloody ages as I don't wont to pay all the extra's involved in getting them from the states. Ideally the lights need to be shallow in depth due to possible extras such as screens, lowers or crash bars and have a mount that the threaded bar can go through but couldn't find what I wanted from the net in the UK.
However I found some on the M&P web site that are shallow and although slightly smaller than the Grote lights in width, the actual lense size is equal in size.
I have just sized them up against the bike and they look in proportion with the headlight and I think actually look slightly better than the Grote lights. The light lense is 110mm and they are only 54mm in depth & cost only £34.99 LINK

I will post up with a write up and pictures as soon as I have fitted them

I did the physical install of my spot lights today

I will be following how Farmboy did the wiring in his thread so I won't bore you by rewriting that when I do get them wired in as he did such a good write up link .

The only place where I have varied in the way that I have done this mod is that rather than having the indicators hanging from the spot light bracket which Farmboy did & also seems to be the regular way of doing it.

I made a bracket that hangs from the bar and attached my indicators to that to give a more standard look.

For the purpose of comparison My Install with side mounted indicators.

Farmboys Install with hanging indicators.

I would like to thank Farmboy for his original thread with his excellent write-up, which encouraged me to do my light bar mod & make my alteration to this mod Spot Light Bar Mod on C800 3498837457

When you get a minute Dave, Could you take a photo of the back of your spotlights so I can get an idea of how they're fitted? I'm going to order some for my bike and do it the same way, Cheers
