Has anyone found a supplier for a replacement LED tail light assembly for the LT? I have tried the LED bulb replacements but was not happy with the brightness. I can't bring myself to bolt on light panels.
Hi Deputy,deputy5211 said:I have used the Tower II on several bikes with great success. Find them, and all kinds of other LED products, at theAutolumination.com website. They have LEDs wrapped around the body and this projects light to fill your reflector in addition to having LEDs that point straight back. Available as 1156 for trun signal only, 1157 for hgigh low as in tail/brake. These are so energy efficient that you must remember to use load resistor on each side so they flash properly and do not send a fault to bike's computer.
I have used their LEDs to replace the LAnding light, map light and trunk light, and even used the red triple head to replace the bulbs lighting up the instrument cluster (pre-2005) and that gave it a soft reddish glow that was easy to read it night, looked great, and I did not have to worry about bulbs burning out again.
I installed the Tower II LED bulbs from Autolumination in the front and rear turn signals on my 2006 LT. They would not flash at all, so I had to add a load resistor. I ended up with a 10 watt, 10 Ohm resistor. The turn signals flash faster than stock but look fine. If you wanted a slower flash, then just use a lower Ohm resistor.CVV said:Hi Deputy,
I was wondering what did you use for a load resistor? The website didn't specify what the mW was. Also, considering that you're the be it known GURU here :bmw: (that's what I would say) is it possible to have the signal lights be led?
