Reverse Lights

I ride a lot of trails and occasionally find myself trying to backup in the dark. Thinking of adding lights that will tie into the reverse light circuit so they would come on when the reverse indicator light comes on. Anyone think of any problems doing this. The lights I got are led's and low current. I'll post pics tomorrow when installed. If any problems I'll just mount on switch.

Simple to do, but use a relay and wire the lights directly to the battery through the relay. You can use the reverse light to trigger the relay and only arm the relay when the quad is running.

exactly how I was going to do it. I was thinking of a combination of triggers. Might just keep simple and only when reverse lights up the lights come on. But was thinking only have power on when headlights on, and reverse light. Might be getting to complicated

The relay IMO is less for load and more for the eventuality that he has a switch failure which leaves the lights on and kills the battery. That's why I'd only wire it up with a hot wire trigger.

I agree w/ getting a relay. What I usually do is just apply the brake lever for the light to get brighter (w/ out actually applying the brakes) and that lights it up enough for me.

finished getting my lights installed this morning. Ol lady has digi cam in st louis this wek. If anybody would pm email, I could email some pics to be put up. Still not happy with switch mounting(used switch instead of reverse circuit). Haven't even got to test in dark yet. I used to use my brake light but I always wanted more. Now I got it when I need it. Can't wait to get a winch, the switch will be mounted with winch controls.

HAHA, I just thought of this. If you were a rebel like some, put some flood lights back there for when you get chased by the cops LOL.
