Would you ever consider doing something custom like retrofitting a projector into the light housing? Would be a cool upgrade for those willing to go that extra mile.

No idea what the bulb number is but you could open up the center headlight and check the OEM bulb for the number. The owner's manual will have a diagram on how to do it.

An easier way might be to call up a parts dealer for these and ask the number, which might be where you got the Kodiak from or some small shop that deals with parts.

For those who have mounted an LED on the handle bars, where did you get the mount, what size LED, and did you wire it tandem with the head lights or separate with it's own switch?

I bet there will be some people on here with a need to build a custom mount with things they can find at the hardware store and some other stores for random things not typically found.

I wired it with its own switch. Used 7/8" mirror mounts from ebay. Works great!

Couldnt have done it without help from fellow forum members.

Thanks for posting this, i just ordered a 12" light bar like that, looks like same one... and was wondering how i'd mount it, just ordered some of those mirror mounts... $3.75 with free shipping. nice!

I used the LED light over 5 hours this weekend. Went on night trail rides Friday and Saturday. Saturday was especially dark as there was a lot of cloud cover.

I have to say, the light performed flawlessly. My riding buddys were shocked at how bright it is. Im guessing AUX will get a couple more orders in the very near future.

Now someone just needs to mount a GoPro on their ATV and film this in the works, would be a great way for those that have yet to get it to see it in action.

rgramjet got me going with the mirror mounts, so happy.

got my mirror mounts from ebay http://www.ebay.com/itm/8mm-Thread-7-8-Motorcycle-Rearview-Handlebar-Mirror-Mount-Holders-Adapter-Clamp-/221747018262?hash=item33a126fa16:g:ji8AAMXQKAtRMYTb&vxp=mtr $3.75 including shipping.

Light: http://www.ebay.com/itm/12INCH-72W-CREE-LED-Work-Light-Bar-Spot-Flood-Combo-Offroad-Pickup-Van-ATV-12V-/261382501799?hash=item3cdb9c75a7:g:5IUAAOSwBLlVLzHZ&vxp=mtr
$30

Wiring harness with relay and button with led indicators: http://www.ebay.com/itm/8ft-40A-12V-Power-Switch-Relay-Wiring-Harness-Kit-for-LED-Light-Bar-Offroad-/251977244279?hash=item3aab039e77:g:PEIAAOSwYGFUuVzy&vxp=mtr
$10

I initially wired it direct to battery, but the button led indicator stayed on with the key off. So, I found two unused wires in the loom under the handle bars... what i assume are the wires for a factory handlebar light... like on the EPS. I used a multimeter to determine ground and hot wires.

Also, I cut out excess cabling and soldered on male/female connectors like the wires in the loom i mentioned. The wiring harness has an extra set of wires for another led... i capped those off and left it. might use for a rear one later, dont know.

my 2 cents.
