    Taillight Ideas/Help


    I have 12 LED's currently for my taillights/directionals. The left most 4 are directional, same as for the right 4. They all are running and brake. However one of them in the right 4 broke a wire connector (right at the bulb), each set of 4 are wired in series, therefore none of those work. Then when I was trying to solder the new one in, i broke one in the middle, so now i only have 4 on the left.
    My question is if anyone knows where to get a completely wired unit like this? If they even make them? Or any other alternatives? I have some pics of what im currently working with (big pain the ass and huge mess) Further modifications to my current tail section is def not out of the question.

    Thanks
    Leo

    mine was a board of 6 LEDs for the directionals for a mototeck undertail kit. there's tons of companies out there that sell LED strips or individual ones that you could wire up to replace the broken one(s)

    you could always a solid 1 piece led strip and cut your tail to fit the one piece rather then 12 individual leds. thats what im working on for my rc.

    pretty sure no one makes a "kit" like what you got. ive been searching for something for a few months now. everything will have to be individual.

    They look like standard T1 (5mm diameter) LEDs. If the manufacturer will not sell you new ones, just go here and order them for yourself:

    Digi-Key Part Search

    Under "Lense Style/Size" choose "Round, 5mm, T1" and click apply filters.

    Choose your color and pick from the results.

    i guess with 'kit' i meant LEDs already wired together to give me the same effect.
    you havent found anyone out there that has strips? I would think that they'd be pretty popular.

    i misunderstood your first post. Ya strips i have found, but i didnt want to do individual leds like you have. i was looking to do something where it had a bunch of leds inside a clear casing.

    theres a few flexuble strips out there but youd have to make sure the spacing of the leds match your tail

    Neat looking bike. I used one of these for a while, it came off easy for trackdays. I got it off the OPP racing site.
