    Any suggestions on Accent lighting? I want to light up both tires and the engine compartment. I've seen some that are just not that bright and others that are priced out of this world anyone have a nice medium they use?

    I used the Kuryakyn lizard lights. Out of all I've seen they do about the best job.

    Bottom row here...

    I got them for $239 if you need info. ([FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica]Maximus Starter Kit)[/FONT]

    The key with any installation is to make sure the surface is VERY clean and they stick well. I heat them with a blow drier after installing and they stick like you can't believe.

    Glider,
    Did you wire the both fenders and the Brake calipers? Do you have any pictures of your bike with the lights on?

    I used the lights under the tank (2 each side)and in front and rear of the engine (in the cross brace up front and under the frame plate by the exhaust in the rear as well as behind the air filter and horn mount.. Didn't do the fenders and calipers. I thought it looked like too much myself doing the fenders and calipers.

    I tried to get pics but they didn't show the lights and when it got darker, nothing showed up in the pics. Have to have a good camera to get those.

    I am sure you must switch it off when riding!...an Eagle in your field of vision would be distracting, but one always on the back of your mind is not... :)

    Is the lighting switched and fused off the "Accessory" plug or did you wire & fuse the switch & lighting separate and direct? :33:

    It would be kinda nice to click your alarm button and have the bike light up...on a dark or moonless night!:D
