PostSubject: Led brake/turn light strip?   Thu 15 Nov 2012, 16:19

im thinking of getting an LED brake light strip, with integrated turn signals, but im not sure where to look or what price im looking at. I was wondering if anyone has done this before and what they used to do it. I want to put the light strip on the back of the silver mount where you mount top cases (i dont have one on at the moment.).

I think that i may purchase one of DennisB's perfect connectors to do this:

So, anyone have any ideas or suggestions?

Admore do a couple - I have the Mini Light Bar connected via DennisB's excellent Perfect Connector. There are pictures in my album.

The bar is very good although not cheap.....but quality costs!

those are probably very good, but im not really willing to drop 150$+ on a brake light kit at the moment. are there any good cheaper alternatives? im looking to spend no more than 90$ or so, including Dennis's perfect connector @ 32$, so, is there anything good around 55$ to 60$?

Expensive!

I have two twelve led strips mounted on the rear of my Silverwing. Eight on each strip are red, the other four are amber. Four of the red ones are on all the time (same as stock) and four light when a brake is applied. Obviously one strip's amber leds used for indicating left, the other for right. I bought them on ebay and can't find them at the moment.
Here is a piccie. https://dl.dropbox.com/u/89523430/2012-04-09%2012.59.40.jpg
The red lights that aren't illuminated are the brake lights.

Here is something that might do for you.

The red leds only light up with the brake (but you could wire it to the rear lights)

trawl ebay and see what you can find.

Cheers,

How about this $41.95. I have one mounted under my top box, with a piece 1&1/2" aluminum angel. It's right behind the top of the rear of the spoiler or whatever if's called.

I used a different approach to lite up the back of my 06 wing.I replaced the rear single filament turn signal sockets with a two filament socket to give me two more rear lights.You can find them at your local junk yard or auto prats store.I like the older(bayonet)type. You have to modify the socket our the housing to install the different socket. No big deal. I like to leave the scooter alone and modify the socket.Wiring is straight forward. Make sure the turn signal is the brighter filament. Try and find the most red bulb you can find.
When traveling in the am in the Smokey mountains I was told they really made the scooter visible from the back. And around the Chicago area you need all the help you can get. Howard NWSSC

Check out (http://www.superbrightleds.com/cat/led-accent-lighting/) and let your imagination run wild. I used strips in the reflectors of two different top boxes for running ,brake, and turn signals. A little time and effort saves some money the hardest part was making a plug that would unplug and plug back in when taking the box off and on. Used a microphone plug and jack from an old CB radio and epoxy to hold it in place.

I just finished hooking up my "new", unused, 10+ year old BackOff light bar similarly to this. Aluminum angle from Ace Hardware and my own version of Dennis' connector made from eBay-purchased plugs and my collection of wires and electrical stuff. I bought the bar way back when for my CB400F at a GoldWing rally and never got around to mounting it on the 400 or on any later bike, until now. This one does not have turn signal functions, but does do brake and turn. What I really like about it is the fact that the brake light is almost painfully bright. Cagers have a hard time ignoring it.

Next is the four-ways, using a neat looking handlebar mounted switch and DPDT relay, as well as headlight modulator. I'm really cheap and so would like to try the S75H4 from Comagination. Any advice, experience, etc on this?
