Now that I have my stator connected properly, my headlight no longer dims with each flash of the turn signals:clapper:



To help the system with some more headroom, I am switching all the static bulbs over to led's. Tonite I did the markers on the side of the fairing.



I also took apart the lights on my fender guard, and stuffed three led's in there, too.

I have ordered led festoon bulbs for the corners on the trunks, I put red led 1157's on the stops, and am seriously thinking about converting the turns to led's.



I like being well lit up at night. Of course, theres the green accent led's too...

Hey UbarW,
I have a question about your side faring marker lights. Did you install them or were they already on the bike when you bought it? Do you know if they are Drag Specialties lights? Reason I am asking is I installed one of those side marker lights the other day (I haven't had time to do the other one yet) and the amber lens fell off. I was not able to find it. It installs using double sided sticky tape (which I think is pretty cheesy) and I was also wondering how to change the bulb without ruining the tape? Seems like they should have put screws thru the lenses.

The side marker lites that were on the bike were hack-n-wack incorporated. The original metal bases and bulbs, but someone siliconed amber lenses over that were too small, byabout a millimiter on each of the four sides. I took them off entirely and put on some three led aftermarket markers.



I screwed them to the fairing, I got lucky and found some that matched the original holes (walmart of all places). The base screwed to the fairing, then the lense snapped into place. NO need to change bulbs with led's though. I had to look around for ones that were appropriate sized. These are a bit smaller, but much brighter...


For the fender guard, I bought another set of three diode markers, and used my dremel to cut the amber lens off. Without the mounting base, and the lenses, they were perfect height to place inside the existing lense on the fender lights.

So your current fairing side marker amber LED lights are from Walmart? That's cool! Your bike looks great!

Yes, the two on each side of the fairing, and the guts of the front fender lights.
