I finally had time to install the LEDs that I ordered about a month ago. It was a real project for me because, I am just really anal about certain things..lol.. The total install time took about 3.5 hours. Most of the time was spent trying the in different locations to acheive the look that I was looking for. I don't have any pics during the install, just the final product..

I bought them from http://www.ledunderbody.com/blue-flexible-motorcycle-led-lights.aspx
(10piece Flexible Kit)

I opted not to use the remote and wired in a switch. I will get some more pictures of the switch and lights if someone wants.

I took it from the battery. Basically the positve line to a switch, from the switch the LEDs and grounded to the neg on the battery.

Here are some pictures of where I mounted the LEDs. THis was a little more that came in the kit, because a friend gave me some extras.

Under Front Fender (2)


Clutch side of bike (2)


** Pisses me off, I just noticed that it isn't centered.. DAMMIT MAN!!** (3)


Throttle side of bike ** there is a total of 3 strips but you can see the front one under the tank.**


Self Explanatory


3 under main frame, 2 mounted on the side pointed in so I can still use my floor jack and one on the very back ( This is not the one under the rear shock)**


Under seat pan


Switch ** I used a small switch, put double sided tape and stuck it to the gan tank bolt tab. It is easy to reach while riding and out of sight. **


The biggest PITA was trying to find a location that you couldn't see the light, but illuminated the bike like I wanted. I would have to like have some like Schimbo.. they mount under the triple tree and shine downward...

Anyway if you have questions let me know.

For the front fender, I really can't any good pictures because of the clearence between the tire and fender. But basically what I did and spliced the two LED together and then ran one wire up the brakeline, and into the wire loom that is on throttle side of the tank. I used double sided tape to hold the wire going across the inside of the fender. These wires are very small and black so it is hard to see the wire going up the brakeline.



This is the spliced side ( clutch side) of the fender.
