So, how do the other guys mount them under the front fender, to shine on the front wheel/tire, without having the wires sticking out and showing on the front? Everything else I could figure out, except that, since you'd think you'd have to have some 'slack' so that if the front end 'stretched out' on a big bump, it wouldn't pull them loose, and where could you 'hide' that 'slack'?I can help with the instructions on the install. I taught a buddy how to do this when I was doing car shows. The secret is hiding them under the lip on the tank so you don't actually see the strips, only the light from them.
The best way to power them is to use a fuse tap on the headlight fuse to run them with the key. You can get into fancy wiring if you want to use a remote. I get most of my stuff, aside from the led strips themselves, from www.oznium.com.
First and second pics are my bike, 2 strips under the tank, 2 more under the side rails on the rear fender, and a small one under the intake. third pic is a buddy's VTX1300, same setup. Last bike is a bike I worked for a retired officer near Toronto.
Thanks for the info. Appreciate it. Exactly what I needed to know.I had the front fender for a while using side emitting LED's, but the ABS on my fender was see through (as it's the off-white, not black) and you could see them through the paint at night. That being said. you go through the bracket at the forks the fender mounts to. You piggy back your wire on the brake line as it has all the slack you need up to the triple tree, then inside the frame right behind the triple tree.
Very nice! Gotta love the blueLooks good! Very similar to mine.
