Question Ordering 2 LED bulbs for tail and brake light?

Custom Dynamics has Tail and Brake LED bulbs that rotate and flash
would like to order but don't know VN750 bulb part number is it 1157 ?
If so I will have cool LED's

Still don't have a owners manual and in the dark about many things..

Yank 'em out and check. I've seen 'em on ebay, and I'm curious how they turn out. Let us know...

They are 1157... BUT... I've never seen a set of LED's that perform as well as 1157 filiment bulbs on our bikes... During the day, they are dimmer and at night they just are not as noticable. I run LED's in my tail light on my VN750, but I also have regular 1157 bulbs in my tail-light fixtures on my hardbags as well as extra lights on the rear. If my only tail-light was the OEM fixture, I would never run LED bulbs in there as I really do not believe that they are as noticable as what you are currently running...

BTW, I've seen those rotate-n-flash that CD sells and they are not all that and a bag of chips. Save your money...

OTOH, one of the first things I did was to replace the pathetic single 1157 bulb on my BMW Roadster with

They are not cheap, but the difference is astounding, even from the sides.
24 ultra bright flashing leds replacing 1 #1157 bulb really gets your attention.
I'd bet you could get their module 18-2RD with an 1157 base to fit nicely.

Good golly miss molly! For that price I'll sit on the back of your bike and wave red flags when you stop!
