LED Strip from eBay: $3.00 (or $15 at autozone)
Time: 15 mins, including taking off the windshield, cowl, and maplight


My neighbor bought some of these and put them on his Infinity, I thought "hey, that's kinda' cool, I wonder what they would look like on the LT?"

Strips come in different lengths, measure first (the strips are cutable, every three lights)





Pull off the backing from the double-sided 3M tape, press to attach

I routed the wires through the upper left corner, connected to the map light so it's on when the key is turned (also looks cool when the key is half-turned)




(with headlight off)





with HID headlight on





close up shot




Should increase visibility/conspicuity.

(and it looks Gangsta')


If anyone asks, I'll tell them Audi bought BMW's motorcycle division as well.

Kewl. And RonKMiller is going to be all over this.

Next, you could change the angle of the windscreen arms (and their matching chrome covers) to look more like the "angry owl eyebrows" on the K1600s. :D

Nice! I'm thinking some flexible LEDs in a circle one on each side of the light would be cool too.... I put alot of leds on my VTX and they work great. For a good array of LEDs I go to custom dynamics.com - great service and very high quality stuff. I have more projects to do using their leds on my LT. But the job front is a bit tight right now so it will have to wait.
