Hey Baby, A little color goes a long way!

At Metric Thunder, we’re customizing cruisers with quality accent parts that won’t hurt your wallet. Like this Kuryakyn-produced Rainbow Strobe, a small cage assembly that slips over an H-4 style halogen bulb and creates a colorful pattern within the headlight.

Although the beam is, for the most part, unaffected, some blue, green, and red coloring occurs. Installs with ease on any H-4 halogen bulb with three prong (P43t) base.

Note: A single headlight vehicle can use either a left or right strobe. Check regulations for suitability in your area.

12263_kur_4714_tt_u_pu.jpg

Metric Thunder, the number one online motorcycle parts and accessories dealer, is always on the look-out for the coolest stuff for your bike.

Check out these Seven Color Lizard Lights from Kuryakyn (BTW, Kuryakyn is not some “fureign company�; based in Wisconsin, Kuryakyn is American, through and through.). They light up like a wicked-crafty lizard, and all eyes will be on you at the next rally.
– Thunder Bob

The Lizard Lights offer three spectacular modes:
• Single color steady illumination
• Single color flashing illumination with variable rate
• Paint Mode: All lights, in unison, continuously fading into and out of each of the seven colors (red, lime, ice blue, sky blue, dark blue, purple, green).

The rheostat can be used to adjust how quickly the lights fade from one to the next.

Carefully engineered to draw very little current, there is no need to worry about draining your bikes battery (provided the battery is in good condition and the lights are not left for more than a couple hours). The controller is capable of running up to 16 lights.

Lizard Lights Starter Kit
The kit contains four Seven Color Lizard Lights, controller, four 9″ extensions, two 12″ extensions, alcohol pads, dielectric grease, cable ties, and spare adhesive pads.

Note: Kurakyn Lizard Lights are not compatible with Moon or Flex Lights. Disclaimer:Laws and enforcement of laws pertaining to auxiliary lighting vary from state to state. If you are concerned about your area, we encourage you to check with your local authorities before making your purchase.
