I put 4 of these on the front of one of my motorcycles, spaced about 8" apart, they are awesome, highly visible and



noticeable from oncoming traffic. I recommend these marker lights to all my riding buddies.

The killer to making your own is coming up with some sort of tiny enclosure. Sometimes you can get lucky and find a pair of conventional bullet lamps on closeout that take a wedge base bulb, in which case these are darn bright putting out 12 cd at a mere 15 mA: http://www.mouser.com/ProductDetail...EpiMZZMtEjy7lsqBi5Z1hg%2b6XV/N%2bI4GU7bsShlc=



They're polarized but diode protected so if they don't work in one direction simply reverse the bulb in its socket.



I'm certainly open to other enclosure ideas for any type of LED.

I was just thinking of using modeling clay for a shell and use epoxy as an "enclosure". No need to worry about vibrations and if it does break... well I can make another.

I installed two of these on my GL. I also installed their podmods which modulate the led. I ordered mine from the UK, I don't see the podmods on the link. They are especially conspicuous at dusk, that's when the natural light is closest to the color temperature of a halogen headlight. I made brackets and hung them from the lower fork clamps, very easy to wire.
