Question Led under glow kit

Has anyone ever put an led under glow kit on one of these bikes? Can the electrical system handle it? I think it would make me more visible in traffic and look good as well.

All colors are legal in my state as long you can't see the the actual bulbs. I use to have a kit on my truck so I've checked it before lol. Good advice though

I kinda pieced one together from odd led lighting elements. I have two pods under the tank, two strips under each fender, and two strips under the engine on the frame. Also there is one shining on the radiator cover.

Yeah, mine is a lot brighter than in the picture. I wired it up to a remote switch by the battery so I didn't have to cut holes or anything.

I'm really wondering about how the electrical system holds up to the added load.

Just fine. Leds have a tiny amount of draw. Its not like you are running neon tubes or anything. Its actually pretty safe to leave the lights on for a while with the bike off and come back to it, bike will start just fine.

3x on that. The electrical draw is next to nothing unless your bike is currently loaded with other divides, you'll be just fine!
