Lights

Here are 3 good choices for lights to add to your bike. All 3 do both tailight and brakelight functions (they have 3 wires). Price runs about $8.00 to $12.00.
——————————————

#1           Tailight is 2 or 3 times brighter than #2

              Brakelight is about 50% brighter than #2

If you drive in traffic, this light could save your life, and it fits the Virago 250 like a glove – easy replacement of existing reflector

Here is one of the brightest tailight/stoplight that you will find for $9.99 shipped (price varies).  It is much brighter than the stock unit and some competing lights.  You can mount it right above the stock tailight – remove the reflector and mount it using the reflector’s metal bracket.  Check ebay for “Red Double Stop Tail LED Light for Motorcycle”.   Dimensions are 3.9 inches wide  x 2.1 inches high – or 105 mm W x 55 mm H.  It has 18 LED’s and it has three wires that are about 8 inches or 21 centimeters long.  Like most motorcycles, the stock tailight/stoplight on the Virago 250 is not enough, and the bike needs additional lights to be seen by other drivers.

#2                   Not as bright as #1

                Tailight is 1/3 to 1/2 as bright than #1

              Brakelight is about 2/3 as bright than #1

    What are the additional headlights you have on your bike in the pictures? Are those fog lights? If you have any info/tutorials on those, I’d be glad to hear about it.

      Hi,
      If you are referring to the pictures with the black Rifle fairing, the rectangular yellow lights are the factory Rifle turn signals/running lights.
