Maybe someone knows an led kit

I am looking for an intergrated taillight kit for my 919 and I know clear alternatives makes a kit and a few others do too but i found this really cool one from High tech speed and there are different settings and flashing sequences. Heres a link check it out its under the UFO kits. click a bike like the 929 or the 954 and watch the movies for the running lights and such the dont list a kit for the 919 but maybe you guys know another one like it or maybe one of the other honda kits are the same.
heres the link http://www.hightechspeed.com/


By the way you guys are awsome Im a noob member but have already learned a vast amount of information about my bike thanks!!!

There are some sophisticated electronics in there, but from the movies they provide I'd say the turn signals would be practically invisible during the day, and some of the brake light patterns are confusing. Know as well that there a number of states that allow a flashing brake light for a maximum of 2 seconds, then steady on. Frankly I'm not impressed, especially for $165 plus shipping.

One interesting thing is the LCD control panel for lighting various parts of the bike, and I'd be willing to bet you can program it to rotate lighting around the bike while you're riding. That definitely shows what that site is all about -- catering to posers.

If it has already been done, it is safe to assume it is possible to do it.
On the other hand, if it has not been done never assume it is impossible to do it.

My opinion...

Smaller rear turnsignals are ok, just make sure they're bright enough to be seen in the daytime. Probably a good idea to use hand signals also.

But people who screw with the brake light ought to be lined up and machinegunned. I hate integrated "turn signals" and flashing brake lights. The best riders i know don't touch the tail/rear fender of their bikes. They're too busy riding and changing tires.

I personally like the system and i can get them much cheaper than 165+shipping. I just like the idea. I just want to know if any of these likt would work. guess not. I wouldnt do anythign wild but i like the ones that turn on, on the outside then light up making their way in. more for show. And trust em I do plenty of riding and changing tires on this bike i just like to work on stuff and have like a winter project. when theres nothing to do up here in Ny in the winter.
