    Hello everybody,

    I would like to do a project on my motorcycle with led's. I would like to add to my running, turn signal and brake lights.

    I want to use individual led's in 2 different sections on the bike (one right side and one left). I am looking to take these panels, drill holes and push them through for a clean look. Wanting to use around 20 to 25 on each side.

    So, they will be lit all the time as running lights dimly to match the rest of the running lights, they will light fully with brake light, they will flash with the turn signals even when the brake is on as any other bulb would that does double duty as turn/brake lamp.

    hears the kicker. If possible i would like them to illuminate sequentially with the brake light but when the turn signal in in use to light as a group at the same time. however if this will require lots of components needing lots of space then it would be difficult to find a location for it. but if it can be done in a more compact size then i might be ok.

    my background does not include intricate electronics but i did spend 30 years in the automotive service field (out for the past 6). I can take direction and have a little electronics knowledge and like to learn new things and with some help and simple terminology I think I would be ok. UNLESS, the consensus is that this is not feasible.

    that being the case I would digress to non sequential - just lighting as a group.

    Thank you all very much in advance for any input you may have.

    I suggest you start by reading the sites Term of Service. A link to them can be found on any page. Particularly pay attention to the prohibition of automotive ( and motorcycle ) posts. Please do not be surprised when a moderator closes this thread. Also please understand why. If he's nice, he may suggest alternative sources of information for you.

    Welcome to All About Circuits.

    Too bad this site forbids any discussion on modifications to automotive electrical and electronic systems. That would include motorcycles.

    There are other sites that would be happy to entertain your ideas.
