I wanted a bit more visibility on the road, especially once I get that LM rear fender on. I mounted an LED strip from customdymics.com with epoxy to that little nook between the fender and the rear of the stock seat. I used an extension cord from an LED kit (ledaccentlights.net) to make a "connector" that ran under the seat (secured by a staple gun into the bottom of the seat) up to the battery area. Tapped into the run/turn/brake lines via their posi-tap connectors, and voila. Ass-flashers. You'll need to put in their signal stabilizer (I found out AFTER I installed them AND tried a load equalizer) to keep the flash rate proper. The wiring was pretty straightforward, and their support is good. A note of caution - don't bend the light to the angle of the seat edge too quickly. Next time, I'll use a heat gun to warm it up a little before doing so - I snapped the red part of the light, so instead of a run/brake/turn, now I just have a run/turn. Bummer. (No pun intended)

The pics are a little large - check my images page. ;)

I tried doing the same thing you did from when i first saw you did that remember... well something happened lol.. i put it under the seat but the problem was when you put the seat back the lightbar was blocking the little gap it needed to hook onto the fender and the pressure jacked up the break light? one half is on and the other off lol but the turn signals works lol.... gotta get another? can you post a closeup on how or at what part of the seat you actually applied it to?

I dig that mod, pretty sure I'd fins a way to screw it up, I just need to find a good custom shop to do some of this for me. I don't want to try something like this and wind up paying a dealer triple to price to fix my screw up. I'm just not that mechanically inclined. I can prepare the **** out of your taxes though.

Shane, I guarantee you can find somebody to trade Mods for Taxes. Think I'm outta luck though, unless anyone needs a bucket of coal.

I have bartered my services for all kinds of crap over the years. I don't have time to ride in the winter so I may make an offer come tax time. Thanks for the idea.
