Well I finally received my order from Chrome Glow. First off... hats off to chromeglow, their customer serivce is outstanding. I would strongly recommend them to anyone wanting to change over to LEDs. The products seem to be good quality and everything was described perfectly on their web page. I got exactly what I ordered and here are the numbers:
4707-14 9" flexible Array-- Red with brake and blinkers
4000-22 Flexible 40 Amber Array
2050-0076 Metric stabilizer for the LEDs.... This one peice worked for the entire bike.
4710 Run-Turn-Brake controller for metric cruisers
6122-00 Dual Element Circuit .... this allows you the run the front lights as markers and blinkers.

The install was very easy. The heardest part was thinking about where and how to mount everything.

Remove the rear fender:

I decided to mount the Metric stabilizer and Run-Turn-Brake controller under the rear fender. Here is a quick shot of the ***testing phase before I cleaned everything up. *** light blue is the Stabilizer and the orange one on the side rail is the Run-Turn-Brake controller.

Everything worked perfect and is was time to clean it up. I used heat-shrink on everything I could, then finished it up with electrical tape.

The fronts were even easier. I didn't get any picture during the install, because it went so fast.** I will post up some pictures later on of how I mounted them though... the battery died on the camera.**
I decided not to use the Dual Element Circuit. I just used the front LEDs for blinkers. I will keep the Dual Element Circuit, just incase the police pull me over for not having front markers.

Here are a couple of videos.

THis is what the Run-Turn-Brake controller will do for the rear light. I really how it like split up the running lights. ** Also you can remove a jumper the so it won't blink when you are applying the brake. I decided to keep in**

Front LEDs

For some reason the lights look like they are blinking in the video.. Hmm maybe a camera issue.. anyway here is a shot with the bike in direct sunlight.

FYI,
If you have messed with your rear lights and have come across the little black connectors, all they are is a junction point for the *blue wires that is your keyed battery power and the grounds. ** I cut them out, but kept them incase I wanted to use them later for something.

Blue wire = for the front and back is the KEYED POWER.. RUNNING LIGHTS
Black wire = Ground
The other colored wires are going to be your directional power wires. Sorry I don't remeber the colors.

I used a hair dryer to to bend the LEDs around the forks. I found it easier to bend them as I putting them on. ** Be very careful, if they aren't warm enough you will brake the LED ciruit board.

Easy install, just take your time.. If you have quesitons, let me know!

looks good. want to do mine now? how much did that run you?
257.96 w/ shipping

I could have saved a few bucks, by not getting the Dual Element Circuit. If you want I can brake down the prices for ya?

@ KCL, No idea. I cant find a law, act or other legal document stating it. So it may have been the cop I asked yanking my chain. His words exactly were; "Yes its illegal, tho we dont usually stop bike to write tickets for it. (there are many around town with this mod). However if we wanted to, we could."

no offence to cops but they dont know that much about current obscure laws like that. the best thing you can do is contact your highway traffic act office and get the info along with an exact printout then if you ever have any issues, then you have legal documents. you will win in court every time and that cop(Know it all) will get their pee pee slapped...

I dont like how the brake flashes a few times before going solid. Is that bult into the LED strip or is a result of one of the modules you got?

Still undecided if I am going to keep it in though. It is very easy to remove, getting passed the electrical tape is gonna suck! lol..

nice detail with the wirring looks great, would love to do that but Ca. has to many laws so I have to look for sothing more old school
I live in Ca, and have passed many cops on the road. I was inside a store and saw a cop out by my bike, but surprisingly he was admiring it. After talking for a few he told me that he rides a HD and he really liked how the Styker looked.

I live in CA, and haven't had an issue yet with the popo. I guess they really don't pay much attention to the cruisers...lol..

I just relized that I don't have any pictures of the lights installed. I will get them tomorrow. But, no problems with them, and after riding with some friends, they did say they were very bright for LEDs. They had no problems seeing them in the broad daylight.
