This is a cool led mod for the rear finder to clean up the back end. very easy to install and go back to stock if you have to. very bright and functional.

Nice, I just ordered the the 9.8" for the rear and the ones 40LED flex ones for the front. Thanks alot for posting this pic. I was kinda hesitant on the brightness of it. I will be sure to do a full write up when I get the new LEDs.

Just remember when buying these to read all the instructions first. they are flexable but only when heat is applied. I broke one trying to bend it before i read the directions. lucky for me it was a cheaper one. I have the 11" in the rear and the 15 led strips in the front. ill post a pic of the front turns.


Mine are the smoked. the clear would be even brighter.

Its a fairley easy mod. First thing you have to do is remove the whole taillight, reflector, signal and license plate holder from the finder. this is done by removing four bolts from inside of the finder well. the whole piece will come out as an assembly. Then there are four quick disconnect wires that attach to the bikes wire harness. 1. is the left signal. 2. is the brakelight/runnunglight. 3. is the right signal. 4. is the license plate light. Once the assembly is removed what I did was snip the plastic connectors from the assembly to use for the new led strip. I used small barrell crimp connectors to attach the quick dissconnect connectors to the wires on the led strip. the led strip just attaches with strong 3m adhesive. once its on its hard to get off. then you just plug the connectors back together from the led strip to the bike wire harness and ziptie the remaining wire under the finder to the frame.

If you want the brake light to function as a running light you have to seperately buy the dual circuit converter from chromeglow and attach it to the led strip and the bikes wire harness. it will run full time at half intensity and when brake is applied it will run at full intensity.

Ya, you just clean the finder real well with some isopropyl alcohol, then remove the backing from the pad on the led strip and stick it on. after the shape is made of course. you have to heat and bend the led strip to get the shape you want.
