A few fellow bloggers have posted recently about the joy of receiving small packages in the post. Well, not to be outdone, here’s my small package story.
I almost made it. It was only 2 months ago that I posted about not needing anything for the bike this year. What I actually said was “the bike is just about exactly where I want it right now” which, as any motorcyclist will agree, is probably one of the most, if not *the* most, stupid thing I could have said. There is ALWAYS something to be improved, changed, added, or otherwise tweaked… and sure enough I found something.
My small package arrived today.
If you’ve looked at a motorcycle parts catalogue lately you’ll know that there are hundreds of options for LED lighting and an electronics engineering degree is needed to identify all the parts required to make it work. (Simply replacing the bulbs won’t do it – I tried that route already, major fail!) But then I found this complete kit at my favourite supplier – J&P Cycles. Gave them a call and… Sold!
I will be installing this kit over the weekend and hopefully all will go well and it is really as “bolt in” as advertised. But if not I have lots of time to make it work as we’re getting a major snow and ice storm through here over the next couple of days, pushing the riding season out at least another week. Sigh….
UPDATE April 12:
One of the easiest installations I’ve ever done. 20 minutes, tops. Instructions were clear and everything fit the way it was supposed to. The most time was spent getting all the wiring jammed back under the seat when the job was done. It even works with my turn signal conversion. So two thumbs up for Biketronics’ LED Bulb Upgrade Kit from J&P Cycles.
