Anybody use them on their SV? I just bought four over the weekend, and am planning on throwing them on my bike this week sometime...They look very cool; Smoked lens with amber inserts. Cheap too, <$10.00 each. Any trouble mounting them? Wiring issues, etc.? Just want to feel prepared when I jump into the project...TIA

Lot's of people use them.

Wiring is easy as splicing them in. You will also have to do something to get them to blink the proper rate. The standard Buell bulbs are 10 watt while the Suzuki's are 21 watt. Easiest fix is to go to Wally World and buy some 1156NA's (four of them) They are the 21Watt amber colored single filament bulbs. Then open up the outer smoked lens, remove the inner amber lens and bulb. Replace with the 1156NA, put the smoked lens back on. Slap onto the bike.

All done.

Here's my experience

As other posters said, it can be done more easily if you get the right adapters or replace the existing leads with bullet connectors. The fronts on an SVS are still a pain, though, since you need to fabricate some kind of mounting plate.

Suzuki Single Filament 1229654 $4.95

Here is the part number to save the next guy the time I spent trying to find them.

<edit> Sorry should have said that the part number is for the LP wiring pigtails.

What's Wally World?

Convenience thing. Due to work, don't have time during the week, and Saturdays are scarce, too.
