Has anyone installed an XK Glow accent kit on their Glide?

Just wondering where everyone put their pods/strips. I went all out and got 14 pods and 12 9" strips - I'm betting using 1/2 of them is going to be enough.

I installed their 6 pod 2 strip kit with 2 additional strips a couple weeks ago. 2 strips under the bags on the rail, 2 pods on the flat piece under the frame towards the rear. 2 strips and 2 pods under the tank(didn't really want to put the pods there but the way they connect there was no choice; the pod ends up being right next to the strip which is kind of a waste.) and I put 2 pods under the nose above the front fender. The plan was to put them inside the fender but I used the 1 set of included extensions from the rear strips to the controller under the seat so I couldn't get the light to reach the front wheel. After I was done I decided I still needed to light the front wheel up so i was going to order 2 more pods, before I ordered I figured I might as well light up under the floor boards as well. So I got for more pods and put them inside the front fender and under the boards. So all in I ended up with 10 pods 4 strips and am totally satisfied with the result. Easy install as well; biggest thing is figuring out how to route everything so all your wires reach. Full disclosure a couple weeks after install my bluetooth module stopped connecting and one of the lights seemed to develop a short. I got XK on the phone and told them the problem, we tried resetting the module but it appeared done for. The gentlemen said they typically never have a problem with the module and one of the pins was more than likely the culprit for the pod. He sent replacements right away which I installed Friday and all is well again.

Nice. I bought the 14 pod / 12 strip package - there are plenty of connectors and extensions in the package so it ought to give me all the options I need. I'll most likely only use half of them, but want it to be nice and clean. Thinking of ordering a 2nd controller for a 4-zone setup, but not sure I want to go that crazy. With all of the household projects, it'll probably be a month before I get to it. Thanks for the reply.

No problem, that's alot of lights! I don't even think you'll use half! Plenty of options for you though. The app is pretty cool, lots of customization options!

Nice! Don't know if you'll be around but a few of my brothers from Houston and Dallas are heading to SA Memorial Day Weekend. Staying at RAFB and heading out to ride the sisters on Saturday!

Four weeks later and mine are still sitting in their original box unopened. My garage has been completely taken over by contractors - it'll be at least another two weeks before I have room to put her up on the lift.

which strip kit you use?
started with the 6 pod 2 strip and ordered 2 extra strips. Ended p ordering 2 more pods so you may as well do the 8 pod 4 strip kit.

Brake light feed wire?

I bought a set of these for my 16 glide and I am not sure where to tie in the brake light wire so the leds all turn red. Does any one here have a pic or location of where to tap in to the brake light feed?

Thanks, Les

I talked to Scott from XK at Daytona...he says that they tap into the brake light relay under the seat.
