Then it would be usefull..... but the original light is sucking badly, and it being red it won't illuminate much.
There's where my mod comes in:
The finished light on my Vulcan front-end
-The tactical light that comes with the Recon-CS6 (doh)
-Any small tubular (led) torch (That fits inside the light housing offcourse!)
First off open the tactical light, end remove all the light crap thats inside, the stuff inside mine wasn't even screwed in, the holes were there,but the screws weren't there!
Don't throw away the internals yet!!
Remove the orange lens bit to, if you put a led-torch behind it, it lights up like a pumpkin at Halloween.
Then dremel the insides out, until your light fits, if you dremeled to much, use E-tape to stabilize it inside.
(No pictures because not al the led-torches are the same in diameter and length, use your imagination)
This until here has been done before, but it would require you to dril holes in the tactical light shell tot turn on the light, not on my mod:
I used the original switch, how? I will tell you:
De-solder or cut of the wiring from the original switch and battery holder, we will only use the black and the red one:
You need a little bit of electrical knowlege to wire it, but the black wire is connected to the battery (pack) and the switch, the red one is conected to the led-torch housing, through a hole (wich was used for a wrist strap), and the switch. The original switch of the led-torch is punched out.
Now assemble the led-torch n the housing, and re-place the switch and switch knob:
Also you can see the dremeled out, shell above, the connection of the red wire to the led-torch housing, and the cut off battery holder end bit, witch contains the metal nut to remove the original battery cover.
The white plastic piece and the piece of the battery holder are required to hold the switch and the switch knob in place, Notice the litle notches, they hold the piece in place inside the shell.
The switch and knob retaining piece in place.
Closed shell, be sure to remove any ridges and obstructions from the battery cover.
Some more pic's of the finished mod:

In the dark, wall is apr. 10 feet away

Offcourse, you're smart enough to paint the shell before installing internals, I think I will keep it like it is.
And your'e done! Comments are welcome...
