Back to the bike..

The original harness was toast, so had sparckmoto.com build me a fresh custom.

Complete w LED's, turn flasher and R/R.  Everything went perfectly.

Until I found the old stator had a bad leg, got a new emgo.  and ALL GOOD.












Cut old reflector and riveted it to new so the original would fit in stock bucket w LED.








Charging properly at idle

How bright are those dash lights? They look crazy bright in your pic.  Nothing worse for seeing at night then having bright ass dash lights in your face.

Ill let you know.  The High Beam indicator should be the only one lit running down the road. And its the dimmest of them so theres that.

Cool.  They look wonderful, but I had to change out some similar LEDs because they were too bright, which is why I bring it up.  Funny thing is, when I had a full face shield on it was even worse, because the angle of the reflection would fill the shield and make me virtually blind at night.  I couldn't run with the shield down at night.  The high beam indicator, like you say, was a big issue, but the turns were worse because you got this intermittent blast of light in the middle of a turn.  I like to pop it in neutral at longer lights, especially to rest my wrists on long rides, but couldn't do it with those lights.

As you know I dont do much riding after dark, Though I have gotten caught a few times.

 I do have these in all the bikes and never noticed them annoying.

Cool. I'd be interested in what you're getting.

I also sent some of our newer style bulbs that aren't quite as bright. You can swap over to those if the older style is a bit much.

I’ll swap out the current dash bulbs for the new style and install these bright ones in the clocks, this evening.  Thanks bud
