Hey! Anyone added any extra lighting to your Quad? I have been looking at a set of fog/driving lights at Wal-Mart.
Should I just hook these directly to the battery or splice in somewhere?

Any Autoparts store will have them.. Just ask for a universal light relay ..
The relay takes the high power away from the toggle switch ,then the toggle switch just acts as a trip switch and all the main power to run the lights is controlled by the relay ..

Here's a simple diagram of a light relay ..

Here's my foreman with a set of Warn Trail Lights. I just connected the wires directly to the battery terminal.

Wouldn't connecting them directly to the battery make them stay on all the time? I would think you would need a switch connected some where in between the lights and the battery.

I am guessing you went battery to switch to lights, you might want to consider eiter splicing off the lights or if you want them on with out the other lights splice off of the 12volt plug in the light pod this way when you shut off the atv you wont forget the lights on preventing the battery to drain. I put on heated grips and went off the battery dirrect until I forgot them on one night. Next morning when I rode and the grips were nice and hot I remembered them. But I guess I got a good battery cause it started right up anyhow just a thought

Oh, I forgot to mention that there is a switch that comes with the lights, it is a small on/off switch.
