Success!!!












After receiving the strip lights from Ebay, I completely removed the individual ones. There was a very noticeable difference between the two options. The strip was much easier to install, and is far brighter than the single LEDs. While working on the bike, I wired the singles with enough wire to try several placement options. Unfortunately, the singles just don't cut it for me. I will probably add a few more strips under the frame and at the back wheel, and not worry with the dim little singles. The switch is a push button which I've installed in the speedo housing just below the speedometer. I have included a few pics of what I have so far. The first picture shows one of the individual lights that have now been removed. The next pic shows the bike with my camera flash on, and the next is with it off. Sorry,I know the pictures aren't the best. Perhaps a new camera is in my future. I will update more later, ride safe.

Hey man- love your modifications. If you allow me to ask- how did you wired those lights ? Do they have like independant power source or are somehow attached to bike batery ?

Thanks! Sorry it's taken a while to respond, been a little busy lately. As for the lights, they are wired to the battery, with a push button switch located in the speedo housing.
