Default Light bar upgrade

Bought an old 2003 Grizzly 660 last summer to tool around on. I was disappointed in the meager light the stockers put out, even after putting in some new "high output" bulbs. This spring, I built up a framework for protection, and added a 17" 108 watt LED light bar. The kit has some floods, and spots. Offa ebay, the set-up cost less than $50, but I did buy a different relay and a separate toggle switch, it runs direct from the battery.

I was able to "move" some 2" saplings without damage to the framework, so it appears sturdy enuff. I made a leather bra to keep the dust and rocks during normal riding events, uses velcro straps to fit snugly around the light. Night time riding is considerably better now. Kicks ass!!

LED light bars , make huge gains in seeing's at night
only flaw with them is for guys in front of you with mirrors on there atv's and guys coming down trails at you, they can be blinding to others LOl

So bright, the bugs flying around looked like snow. Last night, as I was roaming around, saw four owls flying in front of me, then watched them land in the trees.
