Those look pretty good! Thanks for posting them.

Are they much brighter than stock? Are you happy with them? I'm thinking I might go with these instead of Custom Dynamics. I like how the ring looks a little different than the rest.

Are the LEDs in the front turn signals trim rings white or amber?

Also, how do they look during the day? Still pretty bright?

Agree - I have set up 3 bikes with CD LED's and they work great. I installed their plasma rods on the rear of my RGC, as well as their Run Brake / Turn module.

I'm liking those a lot - thanks for posting! Can you take a couple pics of the front and rear without the lights on?

reply and pics

They are brighter than stock. They show well during the day. I also like the way they look. They make the cheesy stock indicators look more custom and higher quality. I got the matching led ring colors for each. You can get white ring leds.

I'm in a similar situation. Dealer installed smoked lenses but I've gotten complaints from those following me that during the day the rear brake lights through the smoked lenses are faint. So for now I've gone back to the stock red lenses until I can get a set of aftermarket (CD or similar) installed. I don't want to get run over because someone "didn't see my brake lights!"

I was not happy with the basic 1157 lights in the rear of the RG custom. I got the Arlen Ness LED Fire Ring rear signals and matching front. They are alot brighter and look cool too. I got them off Ebay for $107 a pair. Here's the web page on Ness' site. I'll take some pics later when it's dark and post here.

mffi497 Great looking lights.
Thanks for sharing!
Do the lights just push into the oem housing like the oem lenses and did you need a load equalizer?
I'm interested in getting front and rear ones for my glide too.
If a load equalizer is needed any suggestions?
Thanks!

Mike U, yes, they just snap in like the stock lens. You need a load equalizer for proper flash. It will flash fast and show the security "lighted key" fault on the gauges. I got the badlander tap in equalizer for $37. They make a plug and play for about $70.

Rather than spend $70 + for the plug and play load equalizer III, I bought the Load Equalizer III with wire taps ($36 shipped on Ebay). It was simple to install. Easy to follow instructions. The plug for the rear turn signal/brake lights is under the left side cover. Just tap into three wires and run the black to ground on battery. slight differences with security system, which I don't have.
