They do look cool, especially at night. I had some on my 95 ninja blue running lights and a switch activated red/amber led's under the tail. Since I don't ride at night anymore it's pointless, plus and it does draw attention from cops. If I had a dedicated show bike then I'd have em on there.

it depends on the colors and the direction they are facing. you can get leds for as little as $.05 a piece or the one that i got on the 50 was $15 for just that one... but it is a lot brighter. so it all depends on what you want to do with them

you arent supposed to have them on while moving, just when parked. ive seen some and they look when done right (no wires and bulbs visible)

i have a swint light led kit and they run about a bill fifty...it isnt individual leds tho..its a kit with a combination of pods and strips...very easy installation...everything is pre wired and you just snap everything in...and they look great...and i have yet to get any cops attention, now in my truck...i got a ticket the first night i got em... i think the cops realize bikes need to be seen...and the leds really help

online... i got the one bright one that is on my 50 at www.plasmaled.com lots of places sell LED light pods for cars and bikes, the site i listed has lots of individual ones... look it up on yahoo. they are very easy to wire in. get a switch, connect the hot of the battery to one side of the switch, then the hot wire for the lights to the other side of the switch... connect the ground from the lights to the frame... DONE!

Don't get neons, the tubes break very easily. LED's are the way to go. You have a PM!
