In case anyone is wondering, this is for my 916. I got a lot of complaints last year about it being too dim.

I think 1200mcd, but I rarely go by that number.

if you look on ebay you can find 15,000mcd LED that peaks at 20MA

whereas those LEDs can peak at 70MA

I agree numbers are a joke, especially when talking about ebay numbers. Between people that actually know LED talk though, it's pretty useful.

1200 is usually around the number I use for indicators at work. 15,000 though would be extremely blinding, plus I wonder if it would need a heat sink.

Really feeling like blinding people, I'd suggest this:



180,000 mcd at 700 ma

It would be cool to be able to get back at the jerks that almost run you off the road though. Cut in front of them, hit the lights and watch them back off real quick

Just make sure to cross connect one side of it to the turn signal on the
other side.... so that when the turn signal dimly flashes the opposite
brakelight alternately dims or goes out completely.

The stock lights on a 9** are decent. I liked mine, with a regular bulb it gave off a nice glow. I think Tony had a tinted led on his bike. Maybe that is why it was dark. It looked awesome with the color, but prolly not very practical. The 675 tail is bright enough IMHO, but I want intergrated turn signals. Trumpet makes a great bike, but due to the size plate they use in England, their tails are the size of Oprahs ass, and just as sekkci.

Hey i was just looking at the close up. its hard to tell, do youu have lights goingv all the way across? the only parts of the lens that are exposed are the raised squares, the recessed portions are covered by the tail section. (i.e. it mounts from behind two square holes in the tail section.)
