Just bought my first bike...

Just saying HI! I bought my Ninja 300 two weeks ago. I bought some purple LED lights to replace the running/parking lights that are in the headlight assembly (T10 bulbs) and now I'm hearing I can't put them in cause it's illegal in MI (the state I live in)... Anybody on here able to tell me if that's true or not??

Welcome!

Check below your state guides:
https://www.michigan.gov/documents/s...6_525840_7.pdf

They are clear about the color, the position and the strength of motorcycle lights.
My unlawful behavior make me do some thoughts for your need of customizing.

a) You have to avoid any similarity with state vehicles concerning the color.
(police, ambulances, firefighters etc)
b) You have to avoid any kind of flashing action of those if any.
c) You have to preserve your legal driving lights and signals.
d) You have to avoid been controversial to the rest. Proper driving according
the rules, street legal exhaust, protective gear etc.

They will always have the right to check your lights and give you a ticket but if you don't cause them any problem, you may get away with those...

So, I guess it's a crap-shoot... Depends on the cops attitude and personality and as long as I'm not being an a**hole in other ways, I MIGHT get away with it?

Thanks so much for welcoming me and trying to help a newbie out😊!

Just like everything else, you need a course to go off if you want to.
I prefer my loud pipes. They keep me cool while driving in the city.
