Sweet. How long did it take you? I have the supplies to do it myself, seems pretty simple in your pics.

Maybe an half hour a side at most. Once I got my hands on a fibre cutting wheel about 1.5" in diameter it was a breeze. There is part of the casting that has to be removed underneath. $15 for 6" LED strips and some 100% silicone and you are in. Just finished installing 12" amber LED strips inder the windsheild along the fairing on each side. Soldered them in as turn signals.

Cool mod but what was the cutting wheel for? Looks like you drilled holes & put leds.
Pic is kinda close up to tell how it looks.

There are always these kind of strips 5 x 15 LED 30cm Car Motor Vehicle Flexible Waterproof Strip Light Blue 12V | eBay

Work great on my givi topcase.

Post some more pics. And tell about the grinding fiasco.

I'll have to take a pic of the backside of the casting. That's where the grinding took place. 5 minutes to remove a lump, for lack of a better word, that prevented the LED strip from laying flat. Easy as pie and brighter than I thought it'd be. These are flexible waterproof strips from autozone or advanced auto. What is cool is when I added the LEDs to the windshield for front turns it provided enough load to slow the blinker rate down to normal
