Led light strips in the trunk sides

Postby bsavulis » Thu Sep 24, 2015 2:46 pm



Hey all,
I have followed the tutorial for adding the led light strips to the saddle bag lights. The instructions made what could have been a hard job very easy! Thankyou! I am about to do the trunk sidelights, I have opened one of them up. Inside I found a clear plastic lens, does this stay? Or should it be removed? I read all the postings related to this project but I did not notice any comment regarding the clear lens. Thanks again!

Those are fresnel lenses. As I mentioned in Retrofitting LED Brake, tail and turn signals to GL1500, I just tossed those out - they dimmed the light output too much.
