    make the turn signal visible to the rider in bright sun and sunglasses

    if you look at the pics you will see the green light for the turn signal and below that the one I added.
    the one I added IS visible in bright sun and with sun glasses on.




    If you go to oznium.com you will see many colors and sizes to pick from, for turn signal that can be seen I picked green color and for size I picked 3 LED in a row.

    on the right side by the fuses between the frame and the plastic is the turn signal controller and that is where I made the connections.

    Good idea. I never thought of adding LED accent lighting under/around a motorcycle like oznium has.

    I didn't specifically see a 3-bulb set on the Oznium.com site. Did you buy longer flexible strips and cut it to 3-bulb size, and if so, what is the closest length?

    go to the left side of this page, the 1.2" for $3.99 is 3 LED's, every thing on that list is times 3, they way they make them is in groups of 3 for 12 volts.

    Thanks, I sort of figured the 1.2" module had three bulbs but wanted to be sure. I just placed my order for 2. :-)

    silverdevil,
    OK, I got the LED's from Oznium and figured out how to tap in. But I have two questions...
    1 The wiring is clear, so which is the positive and which is the negative wire? One is silver, the other copper.
    2 Where did you find your Tap in connectors? Couldn't find them at Lowes or Radio Shack.

    Thanks for your help and the great idea.
