Please post nighttime photos of those new lights or a video please. I have been on the fence about this purchase.

There is thy gold, worse poison to men's souls,
Doing more murders in this loathsome world,
Than these poor compounds that thou mayst not sell.
I sell thee poison; thou hast sold me none.

G.f put her car in the garage cause shes worried about the repo man she owns her car but she used it as a collateral for a loan that shes behind. So my bike is in the rain with nature .


I still have to take the bike completely apart. I have to mail my ECU to Brens tunning. Once I can get the bike back in the garage I am going to take out the ECU. Then start on the Crash guards then work my way up to the passenger armrest install. Hopefully by the time i am finished the ECU will be back in the mail headed to me.

This is what most experts in the field say about LED light lifetime.



LEDs have a general life expectancy of 50 000 hrs. If you use your lights for 10 hours a day, this should be 13.7 yrs.

What did the arm rest cost? Is there a kit or did you have to by individual parts?

Cost somewhere around a 1,000 or so I have to look at my receipts because they have to order all the parts seperate. Every dealership is different in savings




The place i ordered it from mailed me everything but the left armrest. I wrote a letter saying how does one mess that up? Anyway had to pay for the other arm rest and waiting a week for it to arrive.

Update photos when you are completed please sir. So far I like the additional light it provides based on this photo. I would like to see it completed and in complete dark.
