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!

Yamaha R1 As a First Bike - Short Man Learning How To Ride His First Motorcycle Yamaha YZF-R1
Is Yamaha R1 good as a first bike? Just check this video out! He has
never ridden any motorcycle in his entire life.
This was filmed the next day after he brought the bike home, and must say
the progress was huge as for only one day. Since then he rides with us
whenever he can. He got his gear few days later so please don't hate for
We always ride geared up and we don't let others ride with us if they don't
have proper protection. He still needs some time to gain experience, which
is needed to ride motorcycle reliably.
Yamaha R1 is good as a first motorcycle until you are not an idiot and you
don't ride hard without experience.
I just uploaded video response to this video.
He rides so much better and is getting very good on the corners. Please
