LED Light Replacement Kits?

Postby rcno33 » Sun Aug 28, 2011 7:12 am



Hey, all-- I saw some posts where folks have replaced all the light on their bikes with LEDs. I'd like to do that as well. Anyone know if there are there kits available?

I've never seen a kit, but you can find the appropriate LEDs on eBay and places like http://www.superbrightleds.com.

Don't forget you're probably going to need to replace the flasher unit. The LEDs don't draw enough current to make the old style flasher work properly and it will flash fast like there is a burnt out bulb. The other option is putting a load resistor on each signal LED.
