Does anyone know how many watts you can run? I was thinking of mounting one from the reflector brackets which is about 28 and a half inches. Most of the 28 inch lights I've seen are 120-180 watts. I will use a relay with a direct power source from the battery with my disconnected handlebar headlight wiring for the exciter wire so it will only work on high beam setting.
I recall that the 12V ACC plug has a 10A fuse so you should be safe adding aftermarket electrical items to at least 10a. As for lighting, quality over quantity. There is no real need for a 28" light bar. I know CK700 didn't seem to be a fan of DiodeDynamics but I am very pleased with the light bar I have. I have a DiodeDynamics Stage Series 6" SAE/DOT White Light Bar (SAE DOT Driving) and it puts out great light and much better than a recommended 12" dual row cree LED light bar I got off of amazon. In the following pictures, I do also have two cheap 3" fog lamps directed towards the sides to fill in side lighting but only used them because I already had them otherwise I wouldn't have bothered. The DD 6" light I have puts out excellent light for riding at night.

I can't say I've trail ridden, dirt road ridden in the dark running 40-50 mph to know for sure but I feel the lighting I have is very sufficient to do that. I would be fine with the single 6" light but do like the added fog cubes pointed to the sides. Do I need those? No. Will I remove them? No. The 3" cubes I have are cheapy Auxbeam lights that were purchased on amazon for roughly $20. I don't buy additional wiring harnesses as I do my own which are run off of my fuse block that is relay energized by the keyed on ACC wire.

The light output from that 6" bar is amazing, especially when you consider the price. It may not be a Baja or Rigid but I personally don't see the need to spend the money on a Baja or Rigid when this DD light puts out the light it does. The $84 for the 6" light is about what it cost before pricing went up on them... good mention.
