    Default Slingmods floorboard lighting

    Hey guys, Slingmods has come up with a lighted floorboard solution like the one that is now offered on the 2021 Spyders. But Slingmods version will blink yellow with your turn indicator. What do you think? Will it be as durable as the BRP solution? Is the extra bling worth the install time? They are priced about $90 less than BRB.

    Very interesting but I want to see an install video before I drop over $200 on that.

    Looks nice, but I would be very careful about add-on LEDs mounted down low like that.
    I added the TricLEDs to my SpyderPops bump skid. After a few weeks, it looked like a Jack O' Lantern.

    Unless the LED strip is recessed and properly protected, it's just too vulnerable to damage.

    Having said that, I'll probably buy them.

    Just my opinion of course. I could be wrong, and I'm sure someone on this site will be DELIGHTED to tell me if I am.

    You have to add the $49.95 1:2 Accessory Power Harness if you don't already have it. That brings the total to $209.90.

    They are not telling you that these are pre order right now. They are not available and will not be in to TricLed for about 10 days.
    We do not have them listed quite yet on our store site because of that. We will install a set on our 2020 RT, for testing also.
    We should have them listed in about a week when we know for sure when they are available and can test.

    If you install the Sequential Fender LED's you would install the extra harness then and bring running and turn signal out to the A-Arm. All plug and play from there.

    The Goldwinger part of me really likes them, but the LEGAL part of me has something against white lights showing to the sides.

    If they were dual-intensity amber, and the lower-intensity would go OFF when the turn signals were in operation, that would give better contrast with the higher-intensity/OFF flashing. I could almost go for something like that.

    SlingMods has some really neat plug and play LED stuff, right expensive though. They have some neat LEDs for the A arms too. I get sucked in with this 'personalized' stuff, like WrapYourSpyder, SlingMods. I try and to pick and choose so it doesn't get 'gaudy' and spread the purchases over time if I can't live without them.

    I have been running amber LED's on the edge of Spyder floorboards for years, and the only issue I have had is them comming loose from getting caught by boots. I just clean the area and apply contact cement to reattach.
    I have been thinking about adding some to my 2020RT. These would be easier to do since it's a complete kit, but not sure I like the white running lights.

    Not really liking the 'white' either, maybe amber or some color that does not attract the patrol car.

    I'm 99% sure the white running lights have to be legal. I wouldn't be concerned with police. I like them but not sure I'd pay that for some stick on LEDs. I know the BuRP version doesn't have integrated turn signals but I want more info on those before I decided what, if anything, I'll buy.

    Hi Steve we are good with this. Ohio Law 4513.13 states it can be White or Amber. 4513.17 covers the same light flashing both colors. Of course we are one of a handful of states that allows red and blue under glow. I found out the hard way once that other states do not!! Not sure if all states allow the white side light.

    Thanks for bringing this point ...... Most folks ASSUME if someone is selling it - then it must be LEGAL ..... NOT TRUE .... it May be but it may Not be ..... everyone needs to check for the State they live, Vermont has the most restrictive NON-OEM lighting regs. that I know of .... If you add decorative lighting I strongly advise it have a shut-off switch. I have lots of LED lites on my RT, and they all conform to Fed. D.O.T. regs. as to color and PLACEMENT. .... However I still have a shut-off switch ...... good luck .... Mike

    True UNLESS they're from the OEM. I have no doubt TricLED has done their homework but there's probably some disclaimer that states "for offroad use only" or some such. If BuRP sells an accessory to all 50 states and/or Canada for a machine meant for road use in all 50 states and/or Canada, I think they would have certify that it's legal in all 50 states and/or Canada. I guarantee they have a team of lawyers who check these things out. If I were to put their lighted floorboards on my bike and get a ticket, I could sue BuRP and win. (I don't see all of that happening but it's possible.)

    We really like these. They look great, put out a lot of light and are a great safety feature.

    Thanks for the video. THAT'S what I've been waiting for, Rick. One question that I didn't see on your website. Is there any warranty and if so, for how long?

    HAGO!

    TricLed usually has a one time replacement lifetime warranty to the original purchaser.

    I think most people will really like the new Floorboard LED's.
