    Added the Oznium lights to my bike. Worked like a charm. Thank you for the excellent tutorial!
    BTW- On the lights, the Silver wire is Hot and the Copper wire is the ground.

    One thing for sure, you won't forget to cancel your turn signals. I plan to get the wind deflectors and maybe doing your LED treatment on the vertical. Are the deflectors hollow, so that a wire can be fished through? You did a really fine job.

    OK, I moved the LED's to the (for lack of a better term) eye brows (holes at the top above the dash), they wedge in so no glue or double stick tape.
    I also moved the wiring to the front turn signal/running lights. if you have noticed it or not the front turn signal/running lights are single filament bulbs so the LED's are on all the time now except when you use the turn signals, then they blink as they should.
    so if you want them to only work when the turn signals are on wire them the way I showed in the beginning of this thread.
    if you want to do them the easy way for wiring, hook them to the front turn signal/running lights, it is easier and less wiring.

    Yesterday I installed the lamps behind those eyebrow shaped cutouts at the top of the instrument pod cover. I had to remove the cover to make it work and that was a bit of a chore as all the tabs were very tight. I couldn't mount them low
    as Silver Devil did because my GPS blocks seeing the lower right section of the dash. I had to made some simple brackets to correct the angle of the lamps when mounted behind the eyebrows but that was simple. Anyhow the pics are in the Gallery section under "DirtFlier's photos."

    I'm thinking of installing an audible signal. Sure, it would be annoying, but one is certainly going to forget to cancel.
