Thumbs up Skene Designs P3 Lights and Photon Blasters video demonstration

http://www.lights.skenedesign.com/


(720p HD version if you click through to youtube itself.)

I installed Skene Design's P3 Lights and Photon Blasters yesterday. The P3 Lights are auxiliary red LED tail and brake lights that have brake light modulator and hazard light functionality built in. There's also an optional P3+ version that I didn't spring for that adds a voltmeter. The Photon Blasters are auxiliary amber LEDs that mount to one's bike's caliper bolts or fender bolts.

Installation of both of these lights was straightforward: I used the multimeter to locate a switched power source for the Photon Blasters (front left running light) and figured out which wire was ground, tail light, and brake light for the P3 Lights; mounted the small, weatherproof control units for each; hooked up the wiring using included Positap connectors; and mounted the LED units using the bike-specific (PB) and universal (P3) included hardware.

Both the P3 Lights and the Photon Blaster seem quite conspicuous subjectively, and I hope that the video that I made illustrates this without quite as much sensor artifact as the earlier video review of these products that someone made.

buy a bunch of LEDs for cheap here.

put it together, encapsulate it, and boom, you saved a ton of scratch.

when i buy my versys this weekend i think this might be the first thing i do

there are plenty of tutorials on how to wire up your own LED circuits.

I have both sets of these on my R1200GS. The videos don't do them justice. Well worth it for safety. Once you are done with them you can easily sell them for $100 a piece on ADVrider.com. Well worth your safety. Once I have some extra cash I'm going to put them on the V too. Just bought it this month so my funds are depleted.

Thank you,

Choppastyle.
