Been riding a SW now for 2 years and having a blast. I have a 2008 model that I am currently painting and tricking out just a bit. I see a wealth of knowledge and experience here and can't wait to contribute. I do have 1 question though ... I am going to upgrade the tail lights and back turn signals to LED. Are they plug and play, will I need resistors, or do they make a fuse box that will work?

Other than that, nice to meet everyone. I'll post some pics after i get her done.

Look at the Ardmore light bar.  I felt that the rear lighting was lacking so I added one of these.  I was great.  Modulates with brake and has turn signals also.  All LED.  A little pricey but easy install.  Plug and play.

Hello pman. Welcome to the forum.

Yes, kind of clumsy, but you will need resistors to prevent hyperflashing if you are going to change to LEDs.

A much more professional way to resolve hyperflashing is to bypass the original flasher relay (an integral part of the instrument cluster) and add a standard 12 volt automotive solid state relay. Here is a link to the Singapore Bikes Forum's Tech Corner post about splicing-in a new LED-capable relay. It's post #226 if you need to search for it.

Hey, if you're clever you might also be abe to configure that new solid state relay into also functioning as a 4-way flasher. Something sorely missing on out Silverwing.
