Postby Uncle Fester » Sun Dec 07, 2014 5:11 pm



Okay, I asked about this in someones thread on here before, but can not find it, so here goes. . . .

I need to replace my Ring Of Fire LEDs, as mine burned out / stopped working. I can find
Amber out / red blue in and Amber / Amber, but I want (my bike has), Amber out and Blue in.

HELP ! lol

You might have one LED that is open which will knock out the entire circuit. Is it out on both sides or just one? I could only find Blue/Green, Blue/Red, or Amber for the inside lights. Did you but this new or get it used?

Mine is Amber/Blue and was on the bike when I bought her. . . .is out on both sides.

I looked at it two days ago, and bottom 4 inches or so was out, now whole thing is out. I am going to pull it apart once we get a day over 50*s , just to make sure it is not a wiring issue.

I had quite a few blocks of LEDs out on mine when I got it. I called Gary over at Cyclemax, and he was able to get replacement strips from Kuryakin that snapped right in place of the old ones. They had amber/amber and blue/red/amber ones, I put the blue/red/amber ones on.

Thanks WA, I will give Gary a call in a few mins. I was really hoping to find a Amber / Blue , but it seams like they are no longer available, maybe Gary can help. . . . if not Amber / Amber it will be.

After a call to Gary, and some research by him, we determined my Ring Of Fire is a Kuryakyn piece, and they no longer offer replacement LED strips for their Ring Of Fire. . . . so now to decide, do I get rid of the Ring Of Fire or replace it with a different brand ?

According to Gary,he believes each brand of Ring Of Fire has different spacing on the holes that allow the LEDs to shine through, does anybody know for sure ? :?:
