Here is just a couple of quick pics I took.

First one is the home made park light .. just a strip of plastic with three strips of LED lights on it ... Works a charm

The next one you can see LED strips on the lower crash bars ... By using these I was able to still have the original flasher relay without getting " hyper flash " and just an extra bit of presence.

and finally in all her glory . Not the greatest angle . The lights in the air vents , whilst slightly blocked do give out about 3/4's of the effect

I do have plans to install a whole lot more of LED running lights ( About another 15 metres of them ) but thats when the rain sets in here ... Too busy riding with all this glorious weather . We will be spending the weekend down the beach again

Just to give an indiction ... This is what a " Baby Roo " can do at 60km's . It was a one jump onto the bonnet and then it just jumped off into the bush . No one was hurt and lucky it was their " bunky" car.

PS that my youngest covering up the number.

I was watching a video of a BMW on youtube that had an altercation with a Kangaroo, those things are a hazard to navigation!

Something I learnt in the mining game .. and reenforced the last two trips riding around USA ... You might be called a " squid " .. but I would be prefer a squid that gets home.

Les .. there are Three sorts of Roo's

The ones that are sitters ( very much like deer I have been told ) .. you can see them from 100 metres .. and they will not move ... When I was riding from Sydney to Perth I came across alot of these out back of Western NSW ... I was able to pat these as I drove past at 10 kmph.

Then there are the Jumpers ... They will come out at you about 20 metres notice .. some sit .. some move on. They are a two change of underwear sort of thing .

The first two are the most common.

The third is what happened to that car ( and has happened to me twice in my life ... and wrote off two front ends ) .. they will actually jump on you as you are doing 100 kmph. There is nothing you can do about them ... Thats where my 10 ( soon to be 12 ) speakers come in handy it seems ... and haven't had one yet ( touch wood ).

Are there LED bulbs that will fit the clock/voltmeter too?

My belated work report

Ignatz72 and others, please read my latest report #62 here:

http://advrider.com/forums/showthrea...3#post18241813

Maybe some of you will find it useful. I'll let you know how things work out once I redo the damaged wiring harness.

Yep, sorry for the late reply Madman. It's been a while since I've inspected the bulbs in a clock/vm, but the BA7 substitutes are what should work for the clock/vm. If you want to be extra sure before ordering, pull one and take some measurements. You can verify the dimensions against those on the SBLEDS.com page, and you'll also know what kind of base the bulb has (but it should be a BA7). Post some pictures of the original bulb here with the measurements and I will be glad to assist.

Be aware that the center contact on these LED bulbs is the POS lead contact. You may have to swap the bike's leads into the socket base if it doesn't light up at first. I had to swap the leads for my BA9 substitutes.

So I pretty much read the thread scanning for specifics on what's wrong with the harness, but only found a few references cursing the PO's attempt at wiring in the hack...

What seems to be the main issue with the harness?

The gas tank was misaligned when installed. It sliced through a portion of the shielding and stripped and/or cut several of the wires within the bundle. Tomorrow I'll be pulling the rubber shielding off and begin repairing the damaged wires. One nice thing about this is that I have the color codes from the Haynes and Clymers manuals, so will be able to ensure which wires were damaged. I am assuming that the running and turn signal light wires are among those.

It will be nice to get this done. I can then move on to installing the SM-1 and the two 40 LED floods. Finally, I'll get back to correcting the wiring on the sidecar.

Madman's '95 RT

So here is the shot of Madman's '95 RT tail:
From LED stuff


******Remember about using an electronic (or Heavy Duty) flasher relay before switching your turn signals to LEDs. Otherwise you will need to use the resistors inline with each bulb (SBLEDs sells them). Resistors are an ugly solution******
The first bulb on the left is definitely an 1156 (single filament) bulb where the tits on the side are at the same level. An 1157 would have one tit higher than the other (and would be dual filament). I can vouch for the 1156-45s, but the 1156-18 would work as well:
http://www.superbrightleds.com/cgi-b...1156-x18-T.htm

I would still highly recommend the LED replacement Beacon II, which replaces your stock stop/tail reflector/socket unit. I have used this in my '83 RT without issue (your tail should be the same). Motoelekt.com has these for $60. Great deal and no fuss.
http://motoelekt.com/lighting.htm


The second bulb from the left is a mystery. I don't know what the bulb number would be for such a low wattage version of the 1156 base. But if the base is exactly the same size, I would bet that a regular 1156 bulb would work. Just make sure you have clearance from the socket to the inner surface of the tail light lens with whatever bulb you choose. I would probably try this one:
67-W9
http://www.superbrightleds.com/cgi-b...specs%2F67.htm

The third bulb is likely a BA9. Since this one is used in the headlight bucket, there are no recommended LED alternatives. This is due to the extreme heat present in the HL housing. Best to stick with incandescent for the parking bulb.

The last bulb looks to be a BA7. Should reference with this:
