I had the Honda brand wind deflectors installed before I took delivery and they seem to work fine. But I just asked my wrench friend to install Denali LEDs using the Denali mount and learned that, well, you can't have both lights and wind deflectors.

But I want both:crying:

I already have the LED fog lights but want to shoot more light further down the road, which means I do not want fork-mounted lights. Does anyone have any solutions? Please?

Thanks,

John

My mechanic said, "Not possible... they sit in the exact same spot, no trimming would fix."

You just need to step away and look at all the possible places to put the lights then get creative with some metal bending and perhaps some longer bolts that mount the airwings.

Thanks, Guys . . .

The deflectors are gone, the lights are on—Denali D4s.

Maybe some day there will be a mounting solution but until then I deem the additional lights much more important than wind management. Check back with me when it’s 22 degrees with sleet and snow . . .

. . . wait a minute, I live in SoCal!

Changed mind again. I just decided that the wings are really important, too, so I axed the Denali pair. I do have the LED fog lights and, as you all know, the stock headlights are super bright both low and high beams.

If some outfit someday dreams up a suitable mount I'll be on it.

Thanks for all your comments.

I have lights mounted under the mirrors and love 'em, I have no plans on deflectors because I want to see down the road and if cold bothers me, then I'll turn up the thermostat on my heated jacket/gloves.

Can you show how you have them mounted?

how are these wired? straight to the battery? did you have to buy/make the spacers or did they come with the lights?
