Arrow Eagle Eye LED marker lights install

I saw these used on the handlebars to help people see you coming and I gave it a shot. It's a very simple wiring project, running the wires into the headlight can and tapping into the headlight wire. Uses VERY LITTLE energy. The are very small, about the size of a penny - you can't see them when the bike is off. Turn on the bike, and you get the perfect "triangle" of light. I didn't hook them into signals, so they only function as marker lights when the bike is on. I actually like them - cost is under $10 USD. Bought on Amazon.


I glued them in place under the clutch and brake assembly.

I've spent my fortune on wine, women, and motorcycles. The rest I wasted on everything else.

Very nice way of getting “the triangle”.
I truly believe that we are more visible to cages with this setup and I really like the understated way you’ve managed to achieve it.
Thanks for sharing.

Here ya go.
I'll post some pics of the lights off tomorrow. I just got in from a trip. I used some glue I had laying around, and blue masking tape to keep it together until it hardened.
