Jtdunc, how about expanding on this a bit ? Like what leds you used and how you wired it in ? It looks great !
Yes, I also swapped out my stock Yamaha tail lights for LED replacement units off eBay.
NOTE: you will have a white stripe on your bike during the daytime. It's not black.
As to the process:
They don't sell single LEDs so you can find another place for the spare or keep it as a replacement:
1. Consider where you're placeing the LED strip, plan out how much 18 gauge wiring you'll need to solder or Posi-Tap butt splice on. I used about 28" of red and black wiring for the + and - ground.
2. I ran the wiring under the GIVI top trunk, zip tied and threaded it through the right handlebar/top trunk mount.
3. You can route the wiring through the cutouts welded on top of the aluminum framing - big slots.
4. With more than 2' of wire, that should bring you to the middle of your under seat storage area where most have tools or an aftermarket fuse block.
5. Black wire to this LED's black wire for ground. Red wire to the LED's white wire (+positive).
6. If you are connecting to a switched relayed fuse block like me, I simply put a connector on each of the positive and ground wires, connected to the block and added a 3 amp fuse as a single LED strip this small are probably only running a 1/2 amp.
7. Once you have the wiring completed, you can affix the LED strip to the rear of your bike. For me, on the bottom of my GIVI top trunk mount - perfect lip for an LED.
8. These LED strips come with 3M double sided tape installed. You have to clean that surface with SimplyGreen or some other degreaser - let dry or wipe with a clean lint-free cloth. Then center and stick the LED strip on the rear of your bike.
Now if you don't have a fuse block, you could run your wiring to the ACC terminals in the fuse box next to your battery.
Or you could tap into your bike's running lights circuit. But that is another discussion.
Just wanted to share this farkle as it's effective and cheap.
