R1200GS Lights / Spotlights

R1200GS light conversions and additional lights (spot lights) installation

Usual disclaimer - mess with your motorcycle electrics, without knowing what you're doing, at your peril! :-)
CAUTION: the installation of additional lights may not meet regulations/legislation requirements in some countries.

Please note that I (AndyW / Motorcycle Info Pages) don't manufacture or sell any products. Try some searches (e.g. GS, R1200GS spotlights, spot lights, aux lights, auxiliary lights, foglights, driving lights and so on;-)  on or other motorcycle forums for recommended suppliers and/or post your enquiry there.

HID Conversion on the R1200GS
After many many promises, I decided to do a short pictorial on how to install a set of HID lights in my R1200GS. This pictorial is done with lots of extra parts removed for clarity. I wont be telling you what tools to use, or torques. This type of pictorial doesn’t lend itself well to it, but you should easily be able to do what I did.
