      I HIGHLY recommend buying extra 3M Adhesion Promoter for these kits! The kits usually come with one pad, that might get you through 1/2 of the lights. This stuff is F'n MAGIC.

      Also, wipe any surface with rubbing alcohol to which you are attaching the double sided tape. A clean surface is a tape friendly surface.

      $65 from Amazon. I have the universal cruiser kit. It went on easy and is sturdy. It has worked great and I've ridden in the rain and washed the bike with no issues. It has two remotes, many colors, and a boat load of features. It's a solid kit that doesn't break the bank.

      Nice. I went with the 14pc kit. Light placement really can change how the end result looks.

      The only things I have to add are:
      1. get extra 3M adhesive promoter. The one they supply will likely dry out before you can finish.

      2. wipe areas you are sticking the lights with isopropyl alcohol to remove any dirt or grease.
      3. as an extra idea... I added some aluminum angle under the bags to stop light bleeding out between the bag and the exhaust. but maybe that's just me.

      I added a steel strip under the hard bags so it would shine the full length of the exhaust, through the bags and the exhaust pipes...on purpose! That's what I wanted...to light up the entire exhaust. ;)
      Only problem was that there's a bracket blocking one small section. Have to see how that's going to work with my new Freedom Performance Exhaust. Not sure if that bracket will be in the same place?

      I agree, the promoter was almost dry when I opened it. I had plenty of alcohol wipes around the house and scrubbed every area thoroughly before applying the light strips. So far they are all holding tight. I also tried to use a few zip ties to attach the wires so that in the case the adhesive gives the wires and lights would still stay close to where I put them instead of falling all the way down and possibly getting tangled and shredded.

      Worse case scenario if some of the strips went out I would simply buy another kit and use it to fix whatever needs it. I really liked how modular the system was and it made it really easy to configure to the bike.

      For the money I could not believe how good the kit was.

      I like the idea of the angled piece to block the light. That goes for you too Jeb27, good ideas yall had to get your desired look. The way I tucked mine under the bags I think I have just enough bleed out. I wanted just alittle so the pipes were outlined and reflecting the light.

      WE WOULD ALL LOOK AWESOME RIDING DOWN THE ROAD IN A PACK AT NIGHT!!! A BUNCH OF UFOs. If I hadn't recently learned that Im not "club" material I would suggest we form a MC, LOL!!!

      Bear do you have a link to the kit you used?
