Honestly, I've never liked the lights. Reminds me of some dorky teenager w/ the neons under his car. Wouldn't ya know it I scrolled down through the pics & found the red one. It's so kickass I just got a black eye & a fat lip. Totally evil. Looks like Satan's personal ride. Freakin love that red, can't stop looking at it. I'll be limping before it over.
y'know, I just thought about it a bit more. If I were to put as many pods necessary to acheive the same amount of colors it would easily be over $300.
Fruit jacket, how many leds per pod? Is that 6 or 7 colors. The last two almost look the same except they are different exposures.
Rob, if memory serves me correctly, it's 7 LED's per pod.
I have 8 pods total:
1 in front of front cylinder, 1 behind rear cylinder, 1 above both cylinders, 1 next to rear brake rotor, 1 mounted under speed* air scoop on right side, 2 below bike (facing ground) and 1 inside the left side AIS cover.
Honestly, I could use 2 more, maybe 3.
This kit (everything included) was $299.
Green, Red, Dark Blue, Yellow, Light Blue, Purple and White.
FJ, that looks great. i'm sure it looks better in person. at first i wasn't big on lights on bikes because it reminded me of punk kids with the neon lights (like HURD). but, after i've seen bikes in person with lights on them i really like it. maybe one of these days, but i have many other mods i would like to do first.
Thanks Cam. I really wish it would warm up enough to actually wash my bike because all the chrome is very dirty/etc from working on it so much the past month.
I have a feeling this thing is going to GLOW when it's shiny and not dull. Trust me, the pipes and heads especially are very dirty.
I want to see what it will look like all cleaned up.
I would try mounting it to the AIS cover with some extra cable and a quick disconnect. you could get some reflection from within the cover and some light out of the front to help cover the front cylinder.
Very nice work.
On a side note here in CO, Green is illeagal on any thing but cop cars. I got no idea why, but I did confirm it with my neighbor who is a county cop.
