So I’m outta control. Here’s the list so far.
1- kick stand pod. Green of course!
2- Luggage rack. Not one of those top case mount things. A real luggage rack. Heavy modding on the rack assembly to make it work.
3-Signal Dynamics headlight module.
4- Reflective rim tape
5- Phone holder
6- Dual usb charger
7- T-Rex crash bars. Would of had the rear ones too but they were out of stock🤨
8- Lever lock
9- Rotor lock and alarm
10- Motion sensor alarm
11- Loud ass horns, green of course.
If I knew how to post videos, I could throw some at ya.
I’ve only had this beast for a month. I’d have more but I can’t wait on shipments from China. Too slow.
Still looking for more. 😜😎

You could upload a video on Youtube and link it here.

Bye!

Added extra rear turn/brake/tail lights. Attached them to the saddle bags with trailer disconnects in case I want to remove the bags. Wiring was a bear but worth it! 😎 Also added highway pegs. Ahhhhh! 👍

I watched the video with the headlights, what kind of bulb did you use?
Why is it flashing? I had the impression is the turn signal?
How is the cutoff and the pattern of the light?

The flashing is from the signal dynamics module. It’s a safety feature to make peeps notice you. It’s like a wig/wag with only the wig. Apparently it illegal to flash both headlights. It’s reserved for popo and emergency vehicles. One light is legal.

I got the bulbs off ebay. H7 8000k (bluish). I like the 8000’s at night cause it seems to make it easier for me to see stuff.
Here’s the pic of the bulbs and the sellers info.

So far the pattern looks good. I have to check the alignment. Need a flat surface and some distance to adjust, if necessary.

Thanks
it depends what country are you in. The headlight modulators are allowed, but they have specific requirements. From my understanding they never shut off the headlight completely, just "modulate"
Here is a video showing it:
Headlight modulator
Yours looks a lot more like a stroboscope, maybe is not made for LED?

Your LED bulbs are installed in a halogen reflector, please check your pattern, cutoff and see if you bleed light outside the normal pattern that could blind the incoming drivers.

That and they automatically turn off modulation at dusk. That’s a no no.

More! Made with 4” pvc pipe, glued on end caps at rear and rubber (removable) caps to the front. Don’t even need the hose clamps to keep it water tight.

What can you fit inside there?
All my tools (wrench, pliers, sockets, screw drivers, duct tape, flat repair kit) on one side!
More camping stuff in the other. Oh yea, and some space left over.

I hate to say it but the plumbing is ugly. For 60 bucks you can buy a real trunk. Google "EMGO trunk"

Functionality was the focus. And with the gear packed, you can hardly see them.
