    thanks

    those were next on my list and I'm going to look for white. I want them for the X as well as the cars. I've already a LED integrated unit on the CBR

    Red LED will give you the brightest results with a red lense.

    Experimented a lot with led's, Mark, and found the red led's provided the best/brightest brake light during daylight, when used with the red lens. Same with the red rear turn signals. Used to have the smoked lenses -- not bright enough in the daylight for me. At night, red/red is very very bright.
    IndyX recommended this too.


    PS: I didn't use the led bulb, I use the led board designed to fit the retro lens: http://chromeglow.com/products/brake...ight-and-lens/
    I had one by another vendor in my C model rear taillight but it stopped working last March.

    I did the annual oil change yesterday in preparation for putting the VTX away for the summer. I'll see the bike again in October

    I have to say that the change from tube to tubless tires running with Ride-On on my 1300S has been awesome! The Shinko 777s are nice too!

    Finally got that stupid stuck bush out of the lower fork tube. Tried prying it out, no dice. Tried forcing the upper tube back in, no dice. Broke down and bought a map gas torch today. 30 seconds of heat, one slap against some scrap wood, and I no longer have a stuck bush! The new bushings are coming today. I'll be able to get the rear tire mounted back up, the forks back together, and the hard bags all done up this week. All ready to ride BRP the second weekend of April!

    It's not getting that hot there yet, is it?
