Is it illegal to put LED lights on your motorcycle?
USA: Motorcycle LED Laws in the US States to absolutely avoid all include: California, Arizona, Alabama, Connecticut, New Jersey. There are some states that have restrictions which limit the use of Red or Blue LED colors, which makes sense since most police vehicles use those two colors exclusively to enforce the law.
Do LED lights drain motorcycle battery?
Even a single LED light can drain a motorcycle battery if left on over a long enough period. Although LED lights consume low amounts of current, they can drain a motorcycle battery extremely fast. Often multiple LED strips of lights are used, which can drain a motorcycle battery in less than an hour.
Do you need an adapter for LED lights?
LED strips, unfortunately, are not as simple as traditional incandescent light bulbs when it comes to installation and set up. Because they run on low voltage DC, they require a power supply device that converts 120V/240V AC (depending on your location) into the voltage signal that LED strips can use.
Do LED lights drain battery?
Well, you have nothing to worry about. LED headlights barely use much power while running. With this power draw, even IF you leave your LED headlights on the whole night, they will not drain your battery as halogen headlights would have. So certainly, when the car is off, absolutely no power should be used up.
Do you have to have running lights on a motorcycle?
So STRICTLY speaking, it is illegal. California follows the Department Of Transportation (DOT) rules and regulations for motor vehicles, including the lighting and illumination requirements. All motorcycles are sold meeting the exacting requirements the DOT has spelled out.

How do you clean motorcycle wires?
The top 5 ways to hide motorcycle wiring is to:
- Route black wire loom along the frame.
- Fit a lot of wires into the headlight bucket.
- Attach it between frame rails underneath the seat.
- Add extra wire in spots so it can route around open areas.
- Create a concealed electrical box as part of the seat.
What kind of wire do you use for a motorcycle?
I recommend at least 16- gauge thin stranded copper primary wire.
Will LED headlights kill my car battery?
If you accidentally leave the headlights on when the car is not running, your LED headlights may not draw enough electricity to kill your battery. Your halogen lights, on the other hand, will render your battery useless without a jump-start if the headlights are accidentally left on for too long.
Can LED strips catch fire?
The LEDs will not give off enough heat to catch on fire or burn your bed, ever. This project could easily be the fusion of 2 well engineered products to do something cool without any risks!
Can you use an extension cord with LED lights?
LED Strip Jumpers are best used to run as extension cables from the LED power source to the LED strips themselves. They can also be used to jump in between two reels of LED strips, just make sure you aren’t exceeding the maximum run length of your strip.
How many amps do I need for LED strip?
To find the total maximum current draw per meter, we would multiply 60mA x 10 (ten segments per meter for the 30/ LED per meter strip ) = 0.6 Amps per meter OR 60mA x 20 (twenty segments per meter for the 60/ LED per meter strip ) = 1.2 Amps per meter.
