    Hello All,

    Do any of you have experience with strobes that fit the factory mounting points (those little holes/plugs in the headlights and tail lights? We are parked alongside the road daily and looking to add some white/amber strobes for improved safety. Haven't been able to put my eyes on anything that looks like it will fit the factory locations, so thought I'd ask here. Thanks in advance!

    IMO those tiny little strobes barely fit the bill when trying to be seen on the side of the road.

    Install some larger ones that draw other's eyes to you.........like Whelen LIN3 strobes. They are so bright they are offensive. I run a red one just above my license plate on my motorcycle. The WHOLE world behind me knows when I am stopping.

    Too bright? Go with the diffused one TIR3

    Too big? Go with Whelen Mini T-Series.

    Sirennet sells minis too (IMO.....too small....):

    Those Whelen TIR 3's are amazing.:thumbsup:
