Installing LED sidelights is very easy to do, and only takes literally a minute! Plus it improves the looks of the bike, can improve safety, and is VERY cheap. (Bulb size: 501 T10 55w) **THESE** are the ones I have got.

1. Get your LED side lights. I have gone for SMD ones, as I think they look better (and were cheaper) but I have been told they may not last as long, because of vibrations from our bikes.

2. Remove the 'holder' for the side lights from the lens. (Just pull and wiggle the grey rubber thing)

3. Remove standard bulbs

4. Install new LED's. Turn on the ignition to check they work before installing them again. If they do not work, simply take the LED out, and turn it around, as LED's only work one way. If it still doesn’t work, then it is faulty. Sod's Law states that you are more likely to get it in the wrong way first time! (which I did, on both:mad: )

5. Install the holders back into the lens, and ensure it is pushed all the way in. Turn the ignition on and enjoy!




Here are some before and after: (I will try and get some when it is dark/ darker)
Before:

After:

Anyone seen any blue ones about? I wasn't quite sure what to search for on eBay.
Got them too, just search for side light blue, or motorcycle side light blue, you can pick some up for £1 :)

I just searched for '501 t10 blue' and found THESE or THESE. I would not reccomend the second link too much, because they are quite long, so may be difficult to get in!

What do you mean, mine was easy enough! (unless you are talking about the wires being too short to get the whole thing out the final bit!)

Em well you recommended the first ones, and they are only £1.50 so if they turn out not to be the right ones or crap ones it's only £1.50! Cheers again ;)
