Hey Wyatt, that is good to hear. Iordered 2 bulbs from Jim to try, but there not here yet. If I like them I'm going to order more as well.

Thank you Guys.

I am trying to put the complete kits together now, We finally have the best tail/brake lights in the industry, my 1200 is undergoing major LED reworking now..

Yes, I now have the SMD LEDs for the running (marker) lights, higher power and pure white light.

Nothing for the headlights yet..

I want to second Wyatt's statement about Jims lights. I had trouble after just buying 2 for the trunk, Jim tried to come up with a solution to make just 2 work. He finally decided the best fix was to replace all 4 on the rear of my bike. Jim helped me troubleshoot over the phone, try that with most other suppliers.I was trying to evaluate the 2 because of the cost. At Jim's recomendation I bought the other 2 lights. After install the system works like a top. The lights are as bright as the sun. I have not ridden it in daytime yet, but in my shop with the overhead lights off, they are BRIGHT. I pull the brake lever and the volt meter does not move and the headlight does not dim a bit. They appear to be brighter than the incandescent ones by far to my naked uncalibrated eye.
The best advice I have is replace all the lights on the back at one time to avoid trouble. There is a simple wiring modification to make and Jim even provides the instructions and the parts required to do the modification. There is no cuts made to any wires. The instructions even say "no wire cutters allowed"
The only problem I have now is the idiot light on the dash is on since the leds pull so little voltage, if Jim has a fix for that I will do that, if not I will take out the bulb the next time I have the dash open.

yes, thats the one, I have not worked with this problem yet.
I will try to come up with a working fix this weekend.

Did Jim figure a design for the trunk signal lights, and if so how much are they and can I order some??????
If everybody subscribed to the theory of an eye for an eye, the world would eventually be blind.

I could not make a light for the main part of the add on corner turn signals, there is no room in there.
I am working on a design using the SMDs as they are smaller.
