You gave me some awesome ideas regarding your accent lighting... I have the exact same remote and I HATE having it attached to my bike keying. Attaching it to the handlebar for quick access is a great idea. Did you use any special bracket or just silicone to attach it?

Also LOVE the idea of putting the light control box underneath the side body panel. I have so much crap under my seat I was beginning to wonder what I was going to do with it all. Relocating that control box to the side panel is genius!
The remote is just held on with silicone. It works great. Still solid. As are the fork spikes, also siliconed just around the edges. Pretty surprised it's held up.

I was mentioning on the East Central Stryker group on Facebook that I'm considering taking the gas tank accent piece off, and siliconing some neodymium magnets underneath it, and then putting another set on a spare cell phone case.

I've attempted to do this before with the magnets on the top side, but they eventually came off, since I'd rather have too strong of magnets than too weak.

At least with them on the back side of the accent piece, the force when removing the phone would pull them into the piece, and not away. It should work. Then just need some retractable cordage to plug in the phone from the seat, and got a nice, non permanent GPS.

The LED controller is mounted inside that panel with heavy duty velcro. Its the same stuff L&M provides with their solo seat. Its pretty pricey stuff at like $20 for a couple feet if I recall.

The XK Glow LED controller itself offers RGB output so you can program the color you want, as well as the flashing pattern and speed. The blue looks so good with my paint I just leave it on there solid.

It is a bit difficult to find the right settings for the controller from the remote because it takes a full cycle to show the change you just entered.

So rather than fiddle with changing from a breather/strobe to solid on to keep popo off my ass, I just leave it on solid blue.

Here's the velcro:

Happy with the response thank you all. I wanted to wait and show it to you guys when it was done and not just bits and pieces of the progress. Glad I did =]

Hey, how are you finding your Big Radius and Gman bully combo? I've got the same pipes and the EJK. Have you modified any of the fuel tuner settings or left them on stock Stage 1 settings?

I had my dealer install them at the same time with my hypercharger and then dyno it. I don't know how much they messed with the settings but it runs great!
