Bonjour Stéphane, I'm a bit surprised of the mounting location of these lights. Did you ever try lights mounted on the fork lower tubes? Maybe it gives an annoying "shaky" light beam?

These are Darla lights. Yes I imagine it might tremble a little but these lights ha a specific bracket to fit each motorcycle. The St bracket is on the forks. It is very sturdy in the garage. With the 30 inches of snow we got yesterday... I'm not soon to try it. But I will keep you guys posted! I have even made a installation video. Once I tried it on the road... I let you guys enjoy the little movie!!

I just did the Darlas also @ 2,000 lumens each and am very satisfied, with the same mounting location.

These lights are a white blast compare to the EOM lights! Do they shake bignslo?

I just installed Glendas and for some reason my lights go full bright whenever I first flick on the windscreen to go either up or down. Windscreen position does not matter. I think it may be a resistance issue. What has been your experience with this?

I haven't noticed any shake/vibration at all. And mine also go bright for an instant whenever I move the windscreen. I just am not afraid to ride at night anymore, I know the cages can see me and the corners/twisties are fully lit. Without these even though I put Piaas in the headlites when you dipped into a corner the headlite also dipped because of the lean angle. You don't have this problem with fork mounted lights

It probably has to do with where you tied into the power. If you tied into the same circuit that your windshield motor uses, that could very well effect your lights when it is used.

I would separate the power circuits for those two items, if I were you.

Just a thought.
