Nice! Just wondering about weather proofing - Will your solution hold against rain/etc.?

I did a similar thing with my coocase, now the bike has a smiley face when braking.. :mrgreen:

AdMoreLighting LED Arrays

I've got a set of these on order:

AdMore Lighting LED Light Kits

I'm thinking about putting them either in the handguards (I think Strom'n Nroman did that) or along the leading edges of the fairings. Everything I've gotten from AdMore has been great, so I expect these will be too.

If it comes out well, I'll post some photos etc.

Go hakafugu yourself.

The LED's are sealed with just wires coming out the end. I will have to see about the holes i drilled into the case. I may need to put a bit of rubber there to seal it if it leaks. It does have an aluminum plate on top. Somehow i doubt it will leak.

I like what you did with the LED's in your case. Despite the smiley face apperance, it looks nice.

I got a few extra LEDs in the rear end, I installed a box that make some of them fash off and on, I also just installed a unit that is like the old knight rider car, It flashes from side to side then blinks off and on when the brake light is hit,, way cool.
Very good people to deal with, My unit is the LB22 Knight riderz light bar,,

I bought these about a year ago

Skene Design Motorcycle Visibility Lights

Expensive yes but worth every penny. I ride at night 90% of the time and these leds are very bright.

Extra lights

I've been running extra lights for so long that I recently took everything off to sell one of my rides. It made me so uncomfortable not to have the visibility that I couldn't wait to get rid of the bike.

Great Pics

Thanks for posting the pics Bugmagnet. It's hard to get any kind of idea what the finished product will look like without them. Looks like you have a clean install, too. +2
