    Looking to install some aftermarket lights without having to go down the expensive route of Denali or other big brands

     what have others chosen?, Im considering these from Amazon

    The first question to answer for yourself is whether you want extra lights for being seen or extra lights for seeing.

    If it's the former, any old stuff will do.  If it's the latter (especially if you're going to be travelling a long way from home) then in my experience Denali of Clearwater lights are worth every penny.  I wouldn't have wanted anything other than Denali D4s (apart from maybe D7s :-) when I was riding in the dark in Malawi.

    Riding around the UK in the winter, the BMW OEM lights are good enough...

    Thanks for the reply

    I dont travel long distances, just fancied a bit more lighting power. I may plan to upgrade from the F750GS to its bigger brother and then may decide to spend the extra cash.

    I thing a pair of Denali and then having an Ezecan / Canbus set up is gonna run me into about 600?

    Probably right re Denali pricing but for UK road riding, I wouldn't bother.  They're overkill.

    I've got a full set of BMW OEM auxiliary lights (2 lights, loom, with and mounting bar) the came off my 2020 850GS when I fitted the Denalis.

    PM me if you'd be interested in them.  I'd sell them for 50% of new price.

    I believe they fit the 750 out of the box...

    Thank you for the kind offer, but will try the ones above to see if I like the,, I am sure somebody will snap your lights up @ 200 ( is that what you are offering) just a bit too rich for me at the moment, especially if they may not fit directly to the bike

    Completely understand.  Yes, 200 for the lot is 50% of new price.

    Oh - and they definitely do fit the 750...
