Shedding a little light....

Thought I would give this a try. Got them all over my car, so why not the bike too.
What do you guys think?

Can't say that I've ever really been a fan of LED's on cars and bikes, but to each his own.

in a lot of states they are illegal to have them on your cars but legal for on bikes due to visibility factor. certain colors are illegal in MA no amber, red, or blue.... due to that being reserved for police and emergency vehicles.

Its got a 3 zone remote, so each area can be turned on at once or seperate. they also have several functions for flashing and cycling through sections. Whether the bike is on or not.
I will not ride with them on. They are illegal. But its a nice conversation piece at night.

Since the work was done at my shop, installation was zip, but the kit was $146.00 with the install kit and the remote system.

hmm.... i still think that if you understand electronics it would be cheaper to wire together LEDs then to buy a kit... but to each their own.

If you wanna spend the time to wire lights together go ahead. They have great kits out there. Time to effort. I go with quick and clean. My customers don't want to wait usually either.

I can't say that I like them. But it's your rig, not mine.

If I was gonna do something like that...I gotta go with the convenience of a kit. I'd spend the extra coin to save some time and effort.

Thing is tho, its a lot more coin. enough to buy you something else. Like $15 vs $150, plus an hours worth of soldering. worth it to me.

but it prolly looks pretty clean. thats a benefit.
