I've done the exact same thing. The instal was my first mod ever on any motorcycle. The only thing I did wrong at first was install them upside down. Other than that it was pretty average in terms of difficulty. And I am very happy with them.love mine but wouldnt reley on these sigs by themselves ,at night perfect, but barely visable in direct sunlight from behind,i use these in conjunction with a heavy cycles tail light
we have a simular law here ,i wondered about blacking out maybe 1 cm of leds in the middle to give it the distance needed from the middle ,I've got that set up and love it. I don't agree with the day time visibility. They are pretty bright. The thing that I did differently though is that I built my own. I used the same LED strips but attached it to my dog's ass. It cost me $60, not $300.
Also, check your local motorcycle laws. I just got busted during state inspection for them not being far enough out from the center line of the bike. Other than that, I recommend em!
I actually have about 2 inches blanked out between the two individual strips just to add a little separation. The trouble is that they aren't far enough away from the center line. Since they wrap around the fender, I can't go out anymore.we have a simular law here ,i wondered about blacking out maybe 1 cm of leds in the middle to give it the distance needed from the middle ,
There are other ways to combat this other than lowering but yes, you can mess up the rear end if you just slap this on and don't think about the rear look.Im pretty sure theres a few people that have that.
One biggy is that if you clean up the rear end like that you need some air ride to drop that rear end to hug the hire, or it looks like a crotch rocket.
I need to get a pic of my setup, I took a license plate bracket and trimmed the tabs to be able to move it up as high as I can in the fender. In Texas we have to have our inspection stickers visible from the back so I mounted it to one side of the plate mounte and used some pliars to curve the tag around to match the curve of the fender lip. It looks pretty good IMO. As to lowering it, I agree it helps out but I have to say that the DX's sit a little lower already and can get by with it. This picture is with a completely stock setup including 240. This is before I had the plate and inspection mounted and just strapped them to my back pack. I am going to figure out a "quick release" system for the plate and tag so I can run like this whenever I want. O what we do for vanity...What are the other ways Nalcyon?
