I just purchased a LED circuit board to replace the two 1157 bulbs in my tail light fixture on my Nomad. I got this for $49.99 from a company called Clear Alternatives in Las Vegas. NICE PRODUCT!!! See LED-59-L http://tinyurl.com/ysdsu4
Now, CA offers a set-up for the VN750, but it is not a LED board, but rather two LED bulb fixtures with a clear lenses. Not good, IMHO and not very bright either. They also offer the clear lenses and two RED 1157 bulbs. I had this and gave it away at the Gathering 2004. Yuck!!!
So, I'm a somewhat handy Bulldog - you should see what I just created for my Nad, and I'm thinking what would it take to make this LED board work on a VN750... I measured the board and disassembled my VN750 tail light to see if the two could be, but the Nad board is too wide. So I called Clear Alternatives and asked them what they could do for us...
At this time, there is no LED board for the Vn750, but I was told that they would have to have a promise that if they go into production, that they would sell at least 30-50 pcs. They would also need a housing to ensure that the board would fit correctly. Not a problem...
I have the housing in my parts department and will package it up and send it to them. All I need to get from everyone here is a short list sent to me at [email protected]
or responded to on the VN750 poll of people who would be interested. I am thinking that the price will be between $45-$55 for the board in a red LED with a 1157 socket. This would not come with a lenses, but they can include a clear or smoke lenses for an additional charge.
Now, I've tested this new LED board on my Nomad and it is BRIGHT. And anyone would be crazy not wanting to drop some of their power consumption. So, for the price that CA is ball-parking, that is a deal... And you can still use your red lenses, like I'm doing with my Nad.
So, please go to the poll on the VN750 YahooGroup or email me at [email protected]
if you are interested. I have no financial stake in this and you will be buying direct from CA. My only interest is getting to buy a LED tail light for my VN750. I'm letting them demo my tail light fixture for nothing.
So, what says you riders of the mighty VN750???
