I'm buying an 04 with Kuryakyn stuff that has burned out LEDs. Has anyone tried replacing the LEDs? What type of LEDs are used by Kuryakyn?

Ring of Fire: http://www.hondadirectlineusa.com/store ... =956778207

Trunk Bar: http://www.hondadirectlineusa.com/store ... =956778207

and Stealth Lightbar: http://www.hondadirectlineusa.com/store ... =956778207

I haven't tried removing the parts yet. I expect that the Trunk Bar and Stealth Lightbar will be glued in place ? Are the LEDs individual or are they some sort of array that can't be opened and repaired?

replacing leds

The LED's are on a circuit board and has minuture LED's and resisters I won't say you couldn't repair them but you would have to identify the resisters and find a supplier for the tiny leds.I found it was easier to just replace the unit...Jim

Jim,

How are the trunk pieces attached ? Can they be easily removed ?

LED Lights

Morph, just replaced mine as I did not know how to repair. They are in strips and attached by double face tape. Very easy to remove and replace. I called Venco Wings and they sent me replacements.

Is there anyone willing to give up their replaced part so that I may attempt to hack it ?

If successful, I’ll find the replacement parts and share it along with the repair procedure.

I also need info for replacement / repair of the Stealth Lights and Ring of Fire.

Morph,

A year ago I posted the following on this forum to help me try and fix my Ring-of-Fire boards.

http://www.gl1800riders.com/forums/view ... highlight=

If you look at the thread, I did post the circuit diagram including resistor values.

I subsequently hacked on one of my boards and had some success in repairing it, but not enough to make it usable. There is quite a bit of corrosion that attacked the points where the pelletized resistors and LEDs connect.

I bought some silver bearing epoxy to connect some new resistors that I purchased, to the LED devices. I also used the epoxy to add jumpers to bypass bad connection points.

If you want my old boards, I will be glad to donate them to your research activity. One has been hacked on a bit, the other I have left alone. Both have some LEDs that won't light.

If you want to try the silver bearing epoxy to fix your boards or to experiment with, I could be persuaded to donate that to you as well. It was a bit pricey, but I can't think I'll have any use for it in the near future.

I bought new Ring-of-Fire setups, and note that Kury has totally encapsulated the new style boards in a clear plastic sleeve to keep the corrosive stuff off of them.
