Does anyone here have the winglites (custom LED's for the trim?) I have them but have not installed them yet. Any board members have any experience installing these lights and its wiring? It looks easy but I know there will be challenges. Just wondering, and I know you folks have the wisdom of midas. Thanks in advance.

Joe,

I don't have them yet. But I will soon. I think that they are a step ahead and the LED's come with a Lifetime guranty. How do you beat that?

Let me know how the install goes. It has to be pretty straight forward.

I have them and they work great. I did not use the wiring nuts that he included, I soldered all my connections. Wired them to blink with the turn signals really lights the rear end up. Not to hard to install if you are pretty mechanical have to drill a couple of holes, into and back out of the trunk for the wires. I covered all the wires with wiring loom rap. After the finish job can't hardly tell it from a stock bike even with the seat removed.

Thanks for the help and suggestions. I have yet to start the install process (too busy) But I will tackle this soon. I will use your idea Intruder and solder the wires for a perm install.

Thanks for all the posts. I installed them this weekend and didn't have too much trouble. I took the advice of Intruser and sodiered all connections and used heat shrink wrap for all exposed wires. I didn't like drilling into saddle bag wall and connected to the brakes lights to save my bags. i will now go back and drop in an EC power bridge for the additional wires I have coming in. Thanks again

Wing lites are the best.
As soon as Ohio gets over this latest snow storm, Im going to attacch mine.
I was told by WL that I could attaceh them to the isolater of my trailer hitch.
This way I just run one wire bundle to one place and it will look a lot neater.

Winglites....

When I bought my August 2006 in Kentucky, I planned my route back home to ride through Minnesota to have Ted install mine. If you have any problems or questions give him a call or drop him an email. He will go out of his way to help you. This photo was taken at his place after the install.

Got 'em, love 'em, easy install and Ted is the best! I paralelled my trailer isolator harness output fro both the running lights and turn signals (purely because this was the easiest place to tap in to).

Look great, work great! Would recommend them to anybody and a great price too!
