Anyone try these yet, they look like a great alternative to the Police light kit

I have the LEDs. I switched all my lights to LED so that they are the same color. I have seen the halogen and they do put out a lot of light too.

Where did you pick up that lovely set of lights? I foresee a future project for my bike...

I did this back in August of 2012, the only issue I have had is the LED lights interfere with the FM radio. I use XM so it has never been a big deal to me. I haven't checked with Big Bike Parts in a while to see if they fixed that or not. So far I really like the added lights and looks.

I'm curious to know if there is any vibration issue with those brackets?

ie, when you hit some bumps, do the lights vibrate?

They do vibrate very little and maybe a tad on a bump. In my post #26 you can see where I tried to tighten they up by adding a piece of rubber hose between the brackets and turn signals. This helped but not 100%, but that's alright. Silly as it may sound I think the small amount of vibration lets the car's see me better , either that or they are just so frigging bright. I can get behind someone on the road and put my headlight in their driverside mirror and it ain't to long before they move over.

The LED lights are very heavy and need some support , I have a pair of Big Bike Parts brackets on the way ( should be here this week ) to see if their brackets will eliminate any vibrations.

I will report back on how well they do compared to the Victory Police brackets, it will be a week or so as I have some other stuff on order and will wait to get it all to remove the fairing.

All in all I have been very happy with this set up.

The new LED lights from Big Bike Parts do not interfere with my FM radio.

I was looking at these but ended up buying just the brackets for like $60 since I had a pair of lights already. They are pretty stable for how far they hang over.
