LED remote unit
« on: Dec 06, 2012, 05:24:15 PM »
What is everone using to control their LEDs? See a lot of different control boxes out there but what is the best bang for your buck so to speak? Looking for one that has all on with dimming, flashing, breathing and all off.  preferably 2 remotes so I have a spare when I inevitably lose or break one.
I have big plans...

I have the Blue Line Spec lights on my Stryker, which I purchased from E-bay with 15 colors, 2 remotes and multi-modes.  Works great.

Here is a video of my lights. Oh, you may wonder why my bike is so naked.  Its because I am have the parts custom painted. :)

Normally I like naked, but it just seems wrong on a motorcycle.

The LEDs look good!

 contacted LEDGlow and told them of my problem, battery was dead in remote so i replaced that they still did not work so they are sending a new control box, will see if that fixes the issue, if not will return and get a refund and buy from a differant company, will keep ya'll posted.

So are the LEDs on the installs that fad in and out the same as the ones that don't?  I assume so.  I'm just wondering if I ever decided to add the fade or the remote at a later time, I could, right?   

Obviously the units that change color are a different type of LED.

From what I have seen, it is all in the control box.  I want the breathing function cuz I think it looks pretty awesome

Yeah.  I wouldn't mind that, but didn't want to spend the extra. I can always add the control box. I hope.

$50 will get you the box and it should hook right up.

I bought from XKGlow this package: http://www.xkglow.com/Premium_84_LED_Wireless_Neon_Kit_for_Motorcycle_p/xk034002.htm
and this (for my SAC): http://www.xkglow.com/6_LED_Ultra_Bright_Motorcycle_Light_Pod_2pc_Pack_p/xk084001-2.htm
Total: about $92.00 (included shipping). Check some of them on my gallery. I am not a good photographer but lights do look better in person.Works great.
Downside: just one(1) remote.

How do you plan to integrate those light pods with your SAC?

I removed the SAC cone, sticked these PODs right at the bevel of the SAC body, ran its wires thru the SAC body and merged with those cables underneath the tank and to battery location. I will remove the cone, take some pictures and send to you later.
