Default LED Hand guards

I just installed the PowerMadd LED lights for the PowerMadd hand guards. I'm surprised how much light is thrown off by them in the dark. Took it for a quick spin and its a nice compliment and really lights up the short distance and helps when turning.

It's a simple job. You basically tie into the D.C. Power wire using a T clamp and ground the black wire to where the other ground wires are located next to it. I don't have a battery so I decided to have them on all the time when sled is running vs installing a switch which is included but I didn't want to drill a hole. Doesn't get much easier than this.

Just purchased the powermadd sentinel led kit and in the process of installing. Where did you t-tap into DC power at? I am having trouble locating a DC connection. Thanks in advance.

I have the same setup and same windshield. Mine do hit the windshield on full turn. I find they reflect on the back of the windshield a lot at night.

They are handy if stopped on the trail at night, I can see and others can see me.
