Title: Need spotlight brackets
Post by: Draadwerk on March 17, 2014, 11:46:39 am
So, my BMW crashbars on the LC are thicker than the SW Motech bars that I had on my old GS, and now the brackets do not fit around the bars. Can anyone please help me to find a set of these brackets that are compatible with my spots and that would fit around the BMW crashbars on the 2014 LC?

The current mounts are for crash bars and are generic.

Bikegear has model specific brackets as well including ones for the GS 1200.

Gaan koop 'n pypklamp by builders, sny hom in twee, verf hom swart en jy's uigesorteer.

Probeer Rock Fox, dit is nou wel in die Kaap maar daar is mos dinge soos koerier dienste en EFT's.

Adie en Mike sal help as hulle kan

Google sal hom vir jou opspoor.

Wat is die verskil in die diameter tussen die "ou" crash bars en die nuwes?

Sal 'n lag rubber tussenin nie werk nie?

we stock/sell BUTTERFLY brackets - their design allows them to fit over a wide(r) range of tubing sizes.

The crashbar does need to be drilled. It does not compromise the integrity of the crashbar, SINCE the bracket strengthens the crashbar in any case.

Stainless steel, R250 per set, with stainless bolts, nylok nuts, etc.

Gekoop by 'n privaat ou hier in Nelspruit. Dink dit was so R800,42 vir die stel. Dis net die 2 ligte en 2 brackets, geen bedrading of switches nie. SÍ as ek moet navraag doen oor die presiese prys

Ou wat die goed verkoop se naam is Deejay Bushney. Bel hom en gesels oor al die specs en goete. Sy nommers is +27 (83) 5911953 en (082) 9980002. Ek dink 082 nommer is die regte een. Laat weet as ek kan help.

Buy a round file and file the bracket until it fits!   :thumleft:

Keen to hear some feedback on those spots, not their performance, but how the BRACKETRY performs?

We sent 20 back to our supplier, noticing that the spots would 'wobble' on the brackets...

Basically, a MALE raised ridge slots like a keel into a Female groove, then a grub screw hols it tight....

...in theory  ;D

What happened when we sold/nstalled the 1st 2 sets, was that even with the grub screw, the spot wobbled on the bracket, and this when new, leaving our Store....

There is apparently a simple fix using a piece of old bicycle tube, but we felt uncomfortable using a 'fix' lke that n a new product...

The importer then had a special on them, that may not be related to this 'problem'

Just be aware, we loved the concept, it provided an easy solution, but we saw a design weakness, and sent them back.
Just a caution, nothing more

We sell a LIGHT BAR specific to the LC, for attaching spots to the LC, no pics now since I'm at home on an I Pad, but made by SW Motech, available frm us (and BikeGear ), about R700, has deep ALU spacers to allow it to fit roughly under the beak of the bike.
