Has anyone had any problems with using straps at the triple tree with the Piaa 1100 light kit? It looks like it would be real tight to get straps in there where the lights are mounted. Thanks.

Considering only one screw/bolt holds each light on, how hard's that gonna be to disconnect. Try riding more, towing less.

The lights I had on the 02 were not PIAA but were mounted in the same area.
I used this strap....

I looped it over the lower triple tree and had both ends coming out behind the fork tube
and hooking to the ratchet tie down that went down at an angle to the D-rings in the floor.
It cleared everything, but there wasn't a lot of extra space
and the D-rings in the floor were put in the exact locations to give the best angle to the straps.
My 07 now uses a Wheeldock ride-in front wheel chock and I don't put tie downs on the Triple trees.
I only mention this in case you want to consider other tie down methods.
