for the white leds did you use the 1000 or the 150 brightness?

Well I got mine off ebay, they said they were 600-780 mcd. xxdevilzeroxx used the 1000 mcd leds I believe. Here's a comparison...

Mine


And his...



I'd say go with 1000 mcd. Mine actually looks closer to his in person though. The camera takes a little away from the quality.

Check out the 2nd link I posted in my first post. That's really all you need to know. Just take your time. I got a 25 watt solder gun for about $8 from Lowe's and the solder was about $2 from radioshack. The leds cost about $10 shipped for 20. So I'd say look at about $20 for this project. Still well worth it when bluegauges.com charges $65 plus shipping to get there.

BTW, the angel eyes sound interesting. I'm looking forward to a thread about it.

is it me, the camera angle or what but that second pic of xxdevilzeroxx his tach is not dead on the 0 rpm... needs some adjustment.

I will create a thread here to show all us 07 6r owners how it looks on our bikes but a write up, ehh i guess i can just briefly explain what i did but the wiring was complicated, the way i did it but i didn't use any relay or anything but what came w/ the fan kit. I'll start the thread soon.
