If you have them, were they hard to install? and does it hurt if the wiring gets wet? i saw a polaris in a video online with them and it was pretty cool. I figured i may have to give it a try....

I put them in the rear of my 4oo as signal lights but when I took on a little water they stopped working. I picked them up at Princess Auto cheap but haven't seen them there since. Should have bought two sets.

Very cool and adjustable speed of flash.

lots of my buddies have them. and i know quite a few of the triangle boys and they all have them.
the lights are VERY expensive. a light bar is about $150 that is 10-12 inches long. and single light is about $50. one of the brands they use is SHO-ME. u can do a search for them and see how expensive they are. they are 100% water proof and very bright. most of the videos u see of the triangle boys have about $500-$1000 in strobes on their bikes to make it look that good.

The lights you are talking about are not strobes, they are LEDs. And from what I have seen of those bikes, if they spent that much on what they have they got ripped off big time.

I have strobes in my headlights. Cheap kit from the auto parts store. The hardest part of the install was removing the headlights to drill the 1/2" hole. Once all that was done the rest was cake. Just make sure to silicone the bulbs in the headlights.

Mine also stop working after direct water contact to the power pack. Once they dry out they are good to go though. I am working on a way to waterproof it.

you are correct, they are LEDs, but they did not get ripped off. these are the only lights that look good and work in water. they come 100% waterproof out of the box. there is no cheap way to do it. i guarantee you that you dont do the amount of water riding we do.

I gotta jump in here.

Are you guys doing this for looks or for safety? I’ve been considering picking up a Headlight Modulator like they use on road bikes so I would be a little more visible. Ebay has them for about 75 bucks.

I figger it would be another way to keep poachers from sighting in on me when I’m in the sticks.

I want to do it for a couple reasons.

Safety AND looks

Nothing more cool than a quad with flashing white/blue/red/amber lights in the woods to freak people out

hey lucky, if you're looking for some video footage, go to youtube and type in Triangle Boyz, there are a bunch of vids there with the flashing lights. I would post a link, but I'm not that computer savvy.

I have the led strobes on my bike & they are completely sealed,very easy to install but a little pricey. I'll be getting some for my kids bike soon.

I bought strobes from the parts store for about $15...They looked good till the front lights went under water and the headlights leaked water in...the main bulbs busted soon after but the strobes were still flashing.

I bought some from Advance Auto for $15 each and they lasted for a few rides but eventually gave out. I even silconed all the seams but it didnt help much. The waterproof Sho-Me Led's are the way to go but can get costly.
