Fairing mounted HD bullet fog lights

I acquired a set of the bullet fog lights from my brother for next to nothing and they came with the highway bar mounts... I did not want to mount them down the so I bout a set of the mounts for the fairing... and it says you must drill a hole in the fairing... seriously!? Has anyone here had these installed? Any pics of them? I just dont know if I want to drill into my fairing for fog lights

I had the same hesitation about drilling my fairing. Just didn't feel right, so I did this Daymaker Fog Alternative Mounting https://www.roadglide.org/25-lighting/347129-daymaker-fog-alternative-mounting.html

Here you go, installed by the dealer as I was not comfortable drilling the fairing of my brand new bike......but it turned out great!

I have them also, love them, guys I ride with said they can really see me behind them, looks like a Semi coming..LOL

Thats what I wanted, so I recommend them. One thing to remember they turn off in High Beam just like Passing lamps

Just what I wanted to hear... I was really hoping for some good feedback... especially if they made a difference in visibility... the fog gets really thick when I have to leave for work

Good point! I forgot to mention, I had the dealer reprogram so that they stay on with high beams on. They charged me $37.50 for that - nothing free in the HD world LOL

Yeah, thinking about doing that also, can always turn them off with the switch if you had to

Looks great. For some reason, in my imagination, they weren't going to look that good.
