Parts of California commonly get patchy thick fog. Interstate 5 and other highways commonly are the scenes of multiple-car pileups resulting from people driving way too fast in the fog. Often, even if you slow down to an appropriate speed, some other idiot behind you will not, causing big pileups. A motorcyclist was killed this way early in 2002. First, slow down. Use your brakes so you light up your brake lights. Don’t drive faster than you can see. Second, dim your lights. The high beam will just illuminate the fog and blind you. If your motorcycle has four-way flashers and you’re going pretty slowly for freeway traffic, turn them on. (25MPH or slower is the typical rule, but use your judgement.) Third, if traffic slows to a stop, split between lanes of cars and get ahead in the jam. This may protect you from the idiot who’s still doing 75MPH behind you and can’t possibly stop in time before hitting the stopped cars.

Connecting a sidecar to a 1800 goldwing

Sidecar bolts to the front down tube, a sub frame bolted on using the centre stand bolt and a small bracket bolted on under the seat handle. The front mounting passes through the vent behind the fog lamp in the fairing to a clamp on the down tube, remove the fog lamp to make room for it.
I'd fit a damper but I don't see how to do it without removing part of the fairing or the trim round the forks.

Fog light for yamaha szr

Yes a fog light can be fitted . Mounting the fog light needs careful consideration as in best spot and vibration free as well as clean and neat installation and any brackets getting used are not to ugly . The next thing is to splice into your bikes wiring to hook it up or to have a independent wiring system and switch running from your battery and this should include a fuse just incase . I would go with the independent system to start with as its much more easy to set up , this will include a positive and negative wire coming from your battery ( with a fuse attached to to positive wire ) that can run to the fog lamp + side ( power ) the other wire from the battery - negative side ( earth) can go to the on- off switch and then to the fog light so that you switch the fog light to on it completes the circuit giving power to the light without digging into your bikes wiring system which can be done later if you want ...

Just bought a 2003 yamaha v star but fog lights dont work, is there a certain switch for them?

This might be caused by one of two issues that come to mind off the top. I would check fuses to see if one might be blown, and two is I ride with my high beams on almost all the time. In cars, the fog lights are often on a circuit as such to only receive power on low beam lights and not work with lights on highbeams or when headlights aren't on.

My 2011 Harley Davidson 48 Sportster's speedometer lens is fogged

My '04 Fatboy speedo does the same thing. I leave it in the sun for a while, the fog evaporates. Because your bike may still be under warranty, there's a chance the factory will replace your speedo.

Onless you have after market 'fog lights' The lights you speak of are cornering lights. They come on only when using turnsignals. Right or left and not both.

The fog lights on my 2001 heritage springer are not working when I turn the toogle switch on. Could it be a fuse?

Sure it could be a fuse, or a loose ground wire, or if it was wired to only operate with low beam .check for power on the hot going to the fogs.i hate to ask but are the bulbs good? test the switch if power is going to it and coming from it as well.

My fog lights won't go on when I turn toogle switch. Could it be a fuse?

There could be a fuse somewhere for those but if the rest of your lights work, it would be seperate from the rest. The fog lamps are an add-on type accessory and as such, they aren't shown on any schematic. You'll just have to trace the wires out to try to find the problem. Sorry I couldn't have been of more help.

Good Luck

I have a 01 softail classic and my driving lights shorted out on the hyway bar rplaced wire and lights and now my fog dont work alsoo checked two fuses by battery an one near speedometer. my bike now looks...

The fog lights probably are wired to run off the "accessories" fuse. Now that you've rewired your driving lights, do they work? It depends on how the lights are wired. I'd look for another blown fuse somewhere.

I have a 1978 honda goldwing gl1000 motor when i turn on the fog lamp motor trys to die

Sounds like the charging circuit is breaking down causing a strain on the alternator and making the motor struggle.If it picks up on the throttle then this may be the case.
Check all the earth connections as these have a habbit of corroding and causing a high resistance.
