The leds are going to replace the turn signals. I am not sure if i am going to use those exact leds or where i am going to mount them. My buddy has a whole bucket full of aftermarket leds, so I have a bunch to play with....

Hey guys,

I had High Tech Speed X-Arc turn signals on my recently sold SV1000S. The bike needed a new flasher relay to get the flash rate correct. Any thoughts on if the XMoto will need something similar?

The X-Arcs are 300 lumens each and are extremely bright.

Turn signal relay is integrated inside speedometer, not interchangeable, you probably need resistors.

Shaggin, we ride up to Flagler Beach and Mantanza quite a bit. Not sure if you ever head down that way.

Yea, you need resistors... not sure what resistance, but i dont mind the highe rflash rate... I am still working on my bike so I havent ridden with them but I am one of those guys that prefers to use my hands..

Thanks guys for the replies. High Tech Speed sells a resistor, I'll include one in my order.

I added the TTO tach, a Remus header and power commander with auto tune. Can't wait for the snow to be gone so I can try it all out

PCV thread here http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=654767

Never mind the size of filter, the two 90 degree turns are a bigger problem. I think that using a smaller battery would allow more volume in the airbox. I thought about a pod filter, but the stud for the front seat is exactly where the center of the pod would be.

Hey HH060g,

While your bike's apart, can you count the slots for me on the abs/speedo ring for the rear wheel? And does you're speedo read true?
thanks
mike
