Hello fellas,

My order of accessories finally arrived from the US, and I spent the past weekend and this weekend so far installing the accessories so I will be posting about all these accessories' installation soon.

Below are photos of how I installed the LED light bar since I don't have the OEM XT bumper, I didn't want the bar to sit too low and be prone to scratches and damage from bushes, and I didn't want to block the radiator's airflow (let's skip debating on that please). I used automotive heavy duty steel brackets and secured them to the front rack using bolts and nuts through the existing pre-drilled holes in the front rack where the OEM XT bumper connects. I like the end result and the fact that the light bar protrudes outward enough for me not to lose any space for loading up for camping trips where every cm/inch counts.

I was really impressed with the Nilight kit which comes with a harness, a relay, fuses, spades, etc... I ended up using 2 can-am wiring pig tail kits and connected them with the DC3 accessory outlet. Thanks to everyone here who shed light on the DC3 option.

Now you are going to laugh at me, but I didn't get a chance yet to test and adjust the bar at night :LOL: I've been busy in the afternoons and evenings so haven't been riding then but I will definitely update this thread when I do. The light turns ON and OFF though! :cool:

Feedback, questions, and comments are welcomed.

Cheers.

Nice project completed, looks like the front bumper should provide protection from impact. Love peoples ingenuity when adding accessories, thanks for sharing.

Thank you!

Oh yeah. It's beefy. I enjoy maintaining and accessorizing my ATV as much as I enjoy riding it. I hope this will inspire others and helps them in tricking out their ride.

UPDATE:

I went for a night ride tonight and took pictures which show:
1. low beam
2. low+high beam
3. low beam + LED bar
4. low+high beam + LED bar

WOW! I am really impressed with the LED light bar. It's like sunshine at night. I still adjusted it a bit down following the pictures below since it was aiming a bit too high. I am equally impressed with the Beamtech LED headlights which I talked about in this thread. They are a HUGE improvement over the stock halogen light bulbs and they definitely throw more and further light. If one is on a budget, I would recommend the Beamtech LED headlights without spending money on the LED light bar.
