Default LEDs on the bike?

I think I want some LEDs on the bike, I've read a few posts but can't find any with pics. So please, if you have some LEDs hidden up under the fairings, post some pictures? I'd like to see how it looks before spending the money on them.

Also, my bike is an '05 600RR, color scheme is black and white with the HID and LED strips for the headlights (think Audi's headlights.) The bike shop around here has some bright blue LEDs and some purple ones, however, the purple seem to match the headlights more than the blue ones They're also asking $90 for the kit, I feel like there's gotta be a similar kit floating around for a bit less, right?

BTW I'd be having a friend do the installation for me, I'm sure LEDs can't be too hard but honestly, I'd have no idea wtf I'm doing, so I'll save it for someone who does.

My only advice would be: do your best to make sure the bare bulbs are not visible (because it looks sloppy and is illegal in some places).

This is the best thread I have found. It shows where to place the in your fairings.

Blue is supposed to be illegal. Do your research.

For headlight, I really liked sickhids's work. Sick BUILDS (2 wheels) - Sick HIDs
But my bike is illegal already and I didn't want to draw more attention. So I opt not to

Ok so maybe I'll go with white (checking to make sure that legal right now). Some of the car places here in town had all the possible colors and white looks better anyways.

Thanks Jeff, I actually stumbled upon that thread earlier. I was just hoping to get more pictures of bikes with LEDs on them.

I don't have any good pics handy at the moment. Didn't have a good camera when I took this.

I'll try and take some tomorrow after dusk. I've never had a problem running blue on my bike. But PA's led laws are rather murky for motorcycles. And worse comes to worse, I can feign ignorance and change colors till one comes up the cop doesn't find offensive
