NOT MUCH?! What the "F" are you talking about?! It's perfect… Stop there any more and it will look too busy. I LIKE IT!!! You did a great job. Can you give a break down of the job? What lights you used? How many? And how you placed them? I would love to do this with my bike but in Purple…
Be proud of yourself, she looks beautiful!!!

Wudz and Beibl: I just went to Autozone and bought 4 sets of 24" Flexible LED strip(same as Joe Florida) and 1 8" set. I mounted the 24" strips at the rear fender struts, under the tank, under the chrome trim and along the frame. The 8" set I used under the front fender and that's it. I just installed a switch on the left side panel next to my garage door switch. I then ran two wires and split the ends into four with butt connectors so that I can take the tank off with out messing with the leds wires. That's it. went on the cheap and easy way that I know how. Didn't really need or want a remote or changing color lites...


Thanks for the compliments guys....

It does look awsome, although I think the knight-rider led for under your cowl would finish it off perfectly.

That does look good, I'm thinking about doing purple on mine. Do you just have one fuse and hot wire for all of them? :bigthumbsup:

I used an inline fuse and a distribution block that I found just laying around in the garage.

keep in mind that purple is the least brightest color of all the led's and in order to achieve the same lighting effect as some of the other colors (such as blue, red, and green) it takes 3-4 times the amount of lights which can also mean spending 3-4 times as much.
