I'm looking into adding the Kuryakyn Lizard starting kit ( $176) to my bike. It comes with 4 lights and the controller. I was thinking of placing them as follows...

Controller on that little flat peice of metal under the gas tank.

(2) lights under the gas tank

Not really sure where to go with the other two that come with it. Behind the engine next to the plastic chrome covers would put off some good reflections. I also looked at the air intake but it doesn't look like there is a good place to hide them.

Has anyone else put lights on their bikes, and if so, where did you put everything?

well I put 2 lizard lights on each sire of my tank. Im not sure what color ur looking to use but I use red and its not bright enough. Every other color is great but ill either be adding 2 more lights to each side or going with a different led kit all together. As for the controller its a little on the big side so i stuck it under the rear fender on the left side by the back of my leg. Hope this helps. BTW you cant tell by the picks but u cant see that switch the least bit unless your under the bike.

you can see them if your lookin for them. Otherwise no one has said anything to me about it. And I tried putting them on the other side of the frame but light emission was very very minimal. Its hard on this bike because the engine sticks out so far on both side of the tank. SO you want them as wide apart as possible. On my buddies harley the tank is wider than the motor so his lights up better. His whole motor lights up with just 2 stands of leds. Mine only the top lights up.

I got a set of 120 LEDs from Joe Florida. Comes with a four function remote. They are on a flat circuit covered in plastic and completely invisible when turned off but they glow like crazy, I have the white kit on my Matte silver Fury. I wholeheartedly endorse their product. Check them out HOME_PAGE_TITLE

They look great and also at a great price, $125, plus a lot more lights than the Kuryakyn starter kit. Have you ever seen the Kury's? How did you run the wiring on the front fender? It would look cool, but I dont want wires showing.
Tie them tight to and up along the brake line

Not sure who makes the light kit, but there is a video on YouTube of a really cool looking set thats got me wanting it! Really like the "breathing" look this controller has. Looks like there might be 6 lights or so in this kit. If anyone knows who makes this one, I'd really like to know!

Thats the controller that came with my Joe Florida kit. It does strobe, "breathing", full intensity, medium intesity, and low intesity. Really sets the bike off at night. It lights up about a 5 foot area all around the bike.

How obtrusive are the lights when they are off?

How obtrusive are the lights when they are off? Do they stick out on the bike at all?

You can't see them at all when they are off.




I have two long stips under the tank, 2 long stips under the framerails, 2 short strips on the inside of the front fork near the axle to light the front wheel, 2 short stips on the inside of the swingarm and 2 short strips on the inside of the rear fender. All the wires are routed underneath the seat and wired to the remote with lever lockz


The remote gets wired to the battery. It has enough room under the left cover to fit. Only wire that can be seen are the ones leading to the lights on the front wheel as they follow the brake line done from the triple tree.

How many lights are on the bike in the video, so we know how much to buy?

I bought the 120 light kit with the remote control. The extra money for the remote was worth it as the breathing effect really stands out.

Went with the 120 LED kit from Joe Florida, too. Was worried it wouldn't be bright enough with the low profile lights but was pleasantly surprised. Great coverage except for the front tire. I'll probably get a small pod to put on the caliper and get a little more light up front. Other than that, highly recommended kit.

Where did you order your Joe Florida kit from? Think I'm going to make this part of my next purchase :D

You should come up on someone at night and set those to flash and see if they pull over!!!!

Yeah thats the only problem with the black wheels on the SEs. They do not reflect light well.

Looks like you guys already figured out what you're going to do, but as far as a low cost alternative to the kits that yields a much better result, I made my own.

I bought waterproof flexible strips (from Super Bright LEDs - Flexible Light Bars and Strips) and ran them under the tank, around the air intake, under the fenders every where they could have fit. Every 3 leds you can cut the strip and solder extension wires to run them to the next strand or use a disconnect if (for example) you are connecting LEDs to a removable component, (a tank). After you get your leds buy any controller and you're ready to rock and roll. Anyway, to get the glow I wanted, I would have been spending a ton of dough. This worked great for me.

The attached picture is sorta shotty, if you've ever tried to take pictures in low light with a crappy camera phone you know what I mean!
