LED light kit
I have finally finished the install on my LED light kit and am quite happy with the results. I had a slightly different kit than you can order because I backed them on kickstarter when they initially launched.
The kit is from xkglow.com
it has many features that I really like - my favorite is that it has a smart break feature that ties in to your brake line - doesn't matter what pattern or colors you have on at the time...when you hit the brakes, all the lights turn red, essentially turning your bike in to one big brake light.
It has 2 channels - I set mine up so that the front and back of the bike are on channel1 and the middle is on channel2 - the channels can operate independently or together for color choices.
The kit is controlled by a mobile app on your cell phone that allows you to quickly select color from an RGB spectrum...it also has a chameleon mode that uses your phone's camera and you can match the color to whatever you hover over with your phone.
The kit that I have from kickstarter was a 6-pod and 6-strip kit. The pods have 3 bright diodes and the strips are about 4" long
I then bought an additional 2 10" strips for the undertail.
I will post pics of the bike lit up later....just thought I'd share location of the lights where I put them
(2) 10" strips on both sides of the undertail
(1) pod in the middle on the bottom of the flat frame piece under the spring
(2) strips on both sides towards the front, just under the headlights
(1) pod centered on the front under headlights
(1) pod behind main fairing
(1) pod on bottom of bike
(2) strips behind main fairing
(2) pods behind main fairing
(1) strip behind main fairing
(1) strip just rear of the motor
With the exception of the undertail strips because you can't hide those....
and the strips on the front are slightly visible depending on your angle....
I placed the lights so they are all behind fairings and the light is not visible
