Hi,
I just purchased a light bar from a m/c parts warehouse that was going out of business. I got a really nice solid piece with integrated lights but I will have to weld a custom plate to attach it to the bike. I was wondering if anyone can help me out with the size of bolts needed to fasten the bar.
I am attaching two pictures for reference.
The first one shows my bike and the green arrow shows where the light bar is going to be mounted.
The second picture shows the area where the bolt holes are.
The set of holes circled in red are in the front while the ones in yellow rectangles are closer to the engine.
The front mounting holes look bigger than the rear ones.
Does anyone know, what size bolts will I need for both the front and the rear mounting holes?
I am assuming that they will be metric, but need to know the length and pitch etc.
E.g. M12 - 1.75 x 30
Really appreciate all

If you have a Zuki shop nearby they should be able to help.

What is the total wattage on the light bar that you got ?

It doesn't say it clearly on the bulbs, but I believe it is 26 Watts each.
Do I need to wire in a relay between that and the wire inside the headlight?

Thanks,

OK, and how many bulbs total ?
IF there are only 2, then you should be able to bridge onto the high beam wire.
More than that and you need a relay and a wire back to the battery.....with a fuse, of course.

So the holes in the front are M8-1.25 x 25
The ones in the rear are M6- 1.0 x 25

I thought that I should mention this in case someone is looking for similar information in the future.

Here are some pictures of the lights... they don't have a smaller bulb inside but the entire housing looks like a light with a filament. I can't tell wattage, but it says "USA 26" on the lens other than "DOT" and "1210"

Now I have a very newbie question.... there is only one black wire coming out of each of the two lights. How Do I connect them to the battery with a fuse? I can use the switch on the bar to turn them on or off and put an inline 7 amp fuse for protection, but what about the ground wire? Shouldn't there be two wires per light or bulb? Thnx.

That is a sealed beam. The metal housing might or might not come off.
The voltage and wattage is usually stamped on the back near the connector.

The assumption is that the negative "wire" is provided by the housing and the frame.
That means that you must mount it so that there is a solid connection with the frame of the bike (metal).

You can test this with a battery charger or jumper cables.
Connect the negative cable to the frame of the light bar.
Touch the positive cable to one of the black wires.
One light should light.
