Daytime Running Lights DRLs

I would like to be as visible as possible.
So, I'm planning to add Daytime Running Lights (DRLs) to my 2017 Duke 390.
I want them pointed forward to alert cage drivers to my presence.

What product would you recommend I purchase ?

Thanks,
Reddirt

I don't know any of those lights.
In case you don't know already: There are no DRL, low beam and high beam connection on the front light.
They are all switched on an off via CAN-BUS.

That is not easy so be prepared for a challenge.

Something to consider is that in India the 125 isnít fitted with the LED headlight whereas it is in other countries. It might be that they also run a different harness or it might be that there is provision for a normal headlight.

Denali cansmart

The DENALI DRL Daytime Running Lights with Universal Offset Mounting Kit, comes with:
- Wiring adapters for DENALI CANsmart or 2.0-series lighting harness

Can that plug in somewhere on the 390?

Which country are you in? In US, there is already an option to run DRL in the menu.

What’s wrong with the standard DRL on the Duke 390?
Are they not fitted in all markets? To be honest though, l would like the option to run with the headlight on all the time, rather than it only coming on when it goes dark.

In USA for the 2019 model, the menu is DRL or low beam. DRL is less lighting than the low beam, therefore nearly useless. Might as well just have the low beam on (which is required by federal law).

I think Reddirt would like to have additional lighting than provided by just the single front low beam of the headlight.

This isnít my first rodeo, but it is the first one with real clowns...

Additional DRL Lighting

Yes, I'm looking to add 2 additional front-facing DRL lights.
I was told by Twisted Throttle (online store) that the following would work:
  • DENALI DRL Daytime Running Lights With Universal Offset Mounting Kit | Amber Or White
  • DENALI DRL Wiring Harness With 3 Position Switch
  • DENALI 2.0 DataDim Dual Intensity Controller
"That wiring harness will allow you to install the DRLs on your bike, and control them with the switch. The DataDim Controller is also required if you would like to control the brightness at all."

I might try it.

While I can not speak to adding any lighting I can say that if you go into the menu on the Duke and turn DRL "off" it will put your full headlight on 24/7. The naming is kinda backwards from our thought process but DRL "on" is less light then DRL "off"

just my 2 cents.
