Brighter than I hoped

January 02, 2012
Nice small package for a tail light. LEDs are super bright in the brake mode. Nice chrome finish but I think the mounting studs are a bit too long. Not a real big issue but don't see why so much thread is there. Better too much than too little I guess. Wiring is simple but color coding is not intuitive...since when is white ground? Overall, I am pleased with these lights. Will be installing them on my 49 Ford truck.
Pros:
  • VERY BRIGHT LIGHT
  • Easy To Install
Yes, I recommend this product.

Bobber Bling!

November 05, 2010
I bought this to use on my 'bobber' Honda. So many guys using Model A lights, I had to do something different! Easy to mount and wire up. LEDs are very visible for MY SAFETY! Stainless construction should provide many years of rust free use.
Pros:
  • Stylish
  • Great finish
  • Solid Construction
  • Easy Installation
Yes, I recommend this product.

Yes you will need resistors in order for your turn signals to function properly. A dummy load resistor 91003030 will need to be wired into each turn signal wire to provide a load and let the flasher unit work properly.

These lights are for 12 volt systems only and if used on a 6 volt system the lumens of light directly influencing brightness will be significantly reduced to a less than desirable light output.

LED Flasher Unit, 2-Prong
(Part #91064110)
                        

The technology of LED replacement blubs has come a long way the last few years. The problem is that they have gotten so efficient, that even electronic flashers that once worked, now don't. So now we offer a new flasher made specifically for LED bulbs. These flashers do not need a grounded connection.
