Bright Amber ground effects lighting

I'm in the process of installing the ground effects lighting on my sons
Stryker. I'm the mod guy so I get the nod on all the wiring stuff.
( I do it for a living) Jason went with the Amber LED panels which
will be 2 - 18 LED panels and 2 - 6 LED panels...

These are all marine grade products that are water proof.

I will have pics of the install. As we are now making the mounting brackets for under the frame.

Only the switch in the side cover is in place.

The biggest challenge is the wiring around the battery. Very tight
with minimal room to do much of anything.
I have it figured out so it should be fairly easy.

Stay tuned and follow our results.

Ok well I finished the install of the two main lights under the bike on Saturday. Everything looks seamless. No visible signs are present
unless you look real close or from underneath.

The amber lights cast a nice glow almost the same color as a cigarette
ember.

The two 4 inch lights have not been installed yet ( still figuring out where to put them ).

Anyway my son took the bike to work today so maybe pics later tonight
for the masses. ..

Well here are some simple pics of the lights as they are right now.
We have a few more to install yet...


The last shot is my 650 with the rear lights moved to the bottom of each hard bag.

I made the switch today. ( they were mounted on the passenger foot peg mounts)

Both look nice. You should have the amber on yours. I think would set off your paint better. Just my opinion though.

Thanks a bunch, The green was my choice when the bike was still black onix. And I really like the lighting it gives off. It's a good bit brighter then the amber lights.

I have a bunch of these lights in 4 inch (6 LED) Clear, blue, red, green, amber.

Blue and red cannot be used under a bike. ( police get pissed off quick and may ticket you).
