most optimal lighting on a 09 klr 650

i plan on running some extra "drive" lights on my 09 klr 650. I am going to mount them to my pd nerf bars. heres what im looking at but id prefer to go a cheaper route but be moderately close to the performance of the piaa 1100x. post some links of some options.
thanks,
tylerw

Hey tylerw, those are some watt sucking lights you're looking at! 110w for the pair. Your KLR doesn't have as good of a charging system as a car does. You might want to consider some LED's like the Denali D1's from Twisted Throttle. FYI, they are introducing Denali D2's that are a big improvement over the D1's. They claim that the LED's are as bright as 55w halogen's. Regardless, at 20w for two bright LED lights, it won't suck the life out of your battery. HID's are another option to save the juice.

I was thinking of some drive lights as well. Like the $19 ones from Autozone. Do they pull alot?
The main dilemma I was thinking about was where to mount them?

Got a link? I was looking at the forks but it didn't look like they'd clear.

I've been looking into doing this as well. My plan was to buy a mount from KC HiLites that is made to clamp around any tubing from 1.5" to 3" that has a light mount on it. I was planning on attaching the 1.5" clamp to my SW Motech crash bars.
