Side marker lighting upgrade.

Postby boomtank » Tue Jan 29, 2019 3:14 pm

So wandering around 'fleabay' this summer, I come across a LED turn/reflector signal that looks just like the side reflectors on out bikes. I think, hey why not.

After installing them they look pretty good. A bit bright for the marker light, can't really see the blinking, but a resistor will take care of that.

Now they can't say "Oh, I didn't see you." lol

And I've even got a few thumbs up since I added them. :mrgreen:

Keep the rubber side down out there ;)

Those are bright.
Can you take a picture with the lights off too?

Looks great, would you happen to have a link to those blue sidewall stripes?

Not OP<
I have these

But they are not as fancy and solid looking as the motorcycle from this thread does.

Search Ebay for "motorcycle led reflector"
https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R ... rn+signals

Comes in red, yellow, and white. Also, rectangular and round.

Now I think of it I can remember if I got these of Ebay or AliExpress. :roll:

For the wheel stickers search for "motorcycle wheel reflective tape"
https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R ... e&_sacat=0

You can get about any color you want, just be sure to order the correct wheel size. :mrgreen:
