LED bulbs

I just installed Inertia LED 1156-18D-180 white bulbs in the taillights on my 2005 BMW K1200S and they are blazing bright and effective, with no CanBus light out indicator problem. I am very pleased and recommend them to others here in Canada and on the K-Bikes.com forum for the price, quality and quick delivery. www.inertialed.com or on Amazon

SuperBrightLEDS has a huge selection of LED bulbs and a very good Vehicle Selection Guide that includes motorcycles. You can select the correct type bulb for any socket on the bike, plus get a selection of lumens and colors for that socket. I get the brightest headlights, brake lights and blinkers and the dimmest gage/dash lights. They also have programmable flashers for LED's (for brake lights) for $7. www.superbrightleds.com And excellent service.

Common practice is to use RED LED's behind red lenses, amber LED's behind amber lenses, etc. A 100-lumen red LED puts out only red light. A white 100-lumen LED puts out all colors (wavelengths) only part of that is red. A red lens only lets out the red light. Same with amber. Might as well get all the lumens you paid for.

Seriously, my post was deleted for what? For saying thanks for the info, but $50 for signal bulbs is a lot?

I attempted to use the auto-flashing when stopping LED lights for my tail light, and I couldn't get rid of the CANBUS light out error... so grumpy. went and stuck the regular filament bulbs back in. I think that's my only gripe with the CANBUS system. even with the resistors inline, I couldn't get the bike to accept them without whining.
