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.

When Tejas put my LED's on... I asked them to put a quick disconnect at the base of the SAK... in case I should ever need to remove it.

I removed the cone last night and took some pictures. I added one more big bright amber POD while I am at it as you can see in the picture. That's just that. Simple and kinda messy look inside, but when I put the cone back and I think it looks cool just as I wanted, doesn't it?
BTW, I think someone in this forum has posted a How-to light the SAC by using flastlight stuff. You might want to check out that idea too.

That looks friggin' HOT!!!

I was considering running seperate LEDs lines up the splines.  I didn't think you could get a light source bright enough to show that well.  I like it!!! 

Now have you considered hooking them up to the coils and get a light show going when revving the bike?

I've heard about hook it up to the coils but don't know "how to" and also think if it will affect to the power of the bike, like reduce life of the battery or will it create some defects to the electric system?

It shouldn't.  Toxic would be the one that would really know, but he's not part of the forum anymore.

The LEDs draw so little it shouldn't be an issue.  It's super simple to hook up. Just shove one of each wires in with each wire that goes into one of the coils. You want to add a resistor though because once you get some speed it's going to over power the LEDs and fry them.  Found this out the hard way myself. I spoke to Toxic over the phone and he was guessing a 100 ohm resistor would probably do it. 

It looked pretty cool pulsing with the engine until I blew them out.  The cool thing is I told Autozone exactly what I did and they exchanged it for me.
