Another led tail light thread

Thought you guys might be interested in this.
After searching the threads for an integrated tail light and learning my yoshi would have to be lowered or shortened, I decided to make my own custom setup.
Supplies used:
1) 10 amber 8mm 100ma 2.5v straw hat LED's from ebay
2) 5 red 8mm 100ma 2.5v straw hat LED's from ebay
3) 4 resistors (i used 33ohm x3 and 10ohm x1)
4) heat shrink or electrical tape
5) tools to remove rear cowl
6) wire strippers
7) soldering gun and solder
8) scissors
9) drill
10) 5/16" drill bit
I am not going to show you how to remove rear cowl, seats, or detach any of the lights, because there are many how to's on that.
This is basically the same thing that ibbob50 did with his pegs only on the rear cowl instead. Here is his thread if you are wondering http://www.600rr.net/vb/showthread.php?t=128451

I used a 33ohm resistor for the running lights and 10ohm for the brake light. Now the only thing I would change about what I have done is to use lower rated resistors for the turn signals, maybe 20ohm instead of 33

Thanks. It was a VERY tight fit getting them in there and the holes were so tight that I didnt have to use any silicone or anything else to adhere them to the bike, although I may end up using silicone later just as something to waterproof.

Cool, I was about to ask what you planned on using to pack it with in order to keep the water/crap out.

Keep the original stuff coming man
