Audi R8 style lights on a Yamaha R1
Audi R8 style lights on a Yamaha R1. LED strip was installed and wired to operate as a turn signal as well as the running lights. I got the led strips from eBay; they are just 24 LED flexible strips. (Do a search there are hundreds) Next you will need 2 5 pin Bosch style relays. (Dont get the 4 pins they don't have an output for normally closed (87a) which is what you need for them to be running lights.) Next dismantle your bike down to just the headlights. Preheat the oven to 250 degrees Fahrenheit. Place the head light on a cooking sheet and then in the oven for 7 minutes. Remove headlight and pry the housing apart, its pretty easy with the help of a flathead screwdriver. Next glue in your LED strips; I used high temp silicone RTV on mine you can experiment if you like. Once installed lightly press the housing back together and put it back in the oven for 7 minutes when its done you can press it firmly together and the clips will re-snap down. Now just reassemble your bike and wire them up! you can wire it like I did as alternating with the flasher or if you dont want it to flash you can ditch the relays and wire it to any keyed 12 volt source on your bike. I happen to have used the stock 12v running light power for the stock signals (a blue wire as I recall.) Do this at your own risk I accept no responsibility if you confuse Fahrenheit for Celsius and melt your damn headlights :) Have fun kids!
