I want to add LEDs. how many should I put on the tire wells front and rear?
How many under tank and so on?

I haven't done it yet buy it depends on the size of the LED's you are buying and their illumination...I figured I'd run...

2-5mm and 2-10mm ones on the undertail

2-5mm and 1-10mm one under the tank to illuminate the engine comparment

4-10mm ones under the oil pan area (still need to really look under there to plan location) for ground effects

I am thinking also 2-10mm ones under the front fairings to illuminate the front tire area but like I said before this is still in the "testing/planning" phase...

BP or someone that has done it can really answer this question...also I think there was a guy who did a write up on his "custom pods" where he illuminated his bike with them....good luck...:bigthumb

Done. let me know what y'all think. I didn't add any under the oil pan could not decide on a location I like.

I have blue under mine and only had one problem "he said I had wrong color tag lites" when in fact they shine outward to the rear and not on the plate. The pic I added doesn't have the tag lites on it but you get the idea..In my profile there are more... And I do need to update...coming soon.
