Lots of "apples & oranges" here......Nice looking kit.. it looks like it shaves about $175 off the FLEDA system and plate bracket, but I wonder if it's bright enough that it wouldn't give an excuse for a traffic stop and a ticket?
...edited to add that if you go through bing.com then you save 8% off the ebay purchase, so that would put it under $300.
Hey Gary...Phil -
When I first saw this, I had a sense that eiher it was a rip-off or a cheap knock-off. I guess #2 is the right answer (pun intended).
Phil - The number of LEDs is nearly irrelevant since there are so many different type of LEDs on the market. A good example of this: your SR kits use 35 LEDs on each side for turn signals, but your DR systems only use 1 LED on each side for turn signals. It doesn't mean your DR system puts out less light (I'd bet that 3 watt LED puts out more light than the 35 standard LEDs..). If you and the other manufacturers would provide the number of lumens your LEDs put out it would help compare.. but from looking at most other LED kits for other bikes most people buy into the "more LEDs = better" marketing thing and don't question the quality of the LEDs used so the manufacturers just provide the number of LEDs.. .
And agreed, comparing your kits to this tidy kit is apples to oranges. Also, with the realization that the shipping to the US for that tail tidy kit is $71 and the drop in price for your tag bracket the difference in price drops to about $75.
To me the price isn't as important as the safety factor and the "hassle" factor of something like this attracting the attention of the cops (who then ask if it's DOT legal, etc). The tail tidy kit just seems so small, with such a small number of LEDs, that it might be nearly invisible during the day (when I ride the most) and so wouldn't be as safe as the stock lights and would be a good excuse for the cops to pull me over. But... you're using single 3 watt LEDs for turn signals and it seems pretty effective.
