    Got my whips installed with went the sick stick color changing whips and some mcm audio wake speakers to add to my kawasaki factory radio.. Didn't add an additional amp but they sound great especially for the price! I added some of the fancy illuminated rocker switched from 50 caliber racing but the led's never turn off so dunno of that will drain my battery. Also threw on a 41" single row light bar used a 1 x12 overhead like a console have my powered fuse block up there to distribute power drilled and counter bored some holes and put in some eagle eye led's for interior lights already have to replace one that quit working on me though.

    The whips always look cool on night ride videos as well.

    The whips really help you see the others in the group on a night ride. I went on a ride with my whip and the 2nd time I road with the group everybody had whips,lol. They are more useful than I ever imagined when I first got mine. Mine is from Tribal Whips.

    My wife has a terrible sense of direction so I figured I would always be able to spot them if she wanders off too far. And it is nice to see where the rest of your group is if you get separated at a turn in the trail or something. Not to mention just cool looking lol.

    That looks sweet @MIKE_D. What kind of amps do they draw? I have an extra switch in place, but the wiring is small gauge.

    THANKS!!! Manufacture recommends a 5 amp fuse each but they only draw 1.6 when lit. I have them on for the entire ride, every ride and haven't had any trouble. I have 2- 4' whips, 2' rear under the bed and a 10" on each side under the hood.

    Use that switch to trigger a relay if in doubt. Simple to do.

    Fiber optic or led? Can't really tell in the pic but they are very bright! I almost went with the fiber optic but wanted to change colors since my interior lights change.
