I could help you do it if you came to my house, but you don't live near me. Wiring stuff up is easier than you may think, but I'm not sure if I can explain it to you. I'd rather help someone do it in person than try to half-ass explain it and have them blow the battery up in their face. I've hooked up neon lights to cars before, but not bikes, so I don't want to tell you to disconnect the battery or anything and then have your bike not run right. Sorry man.
I've managed to figure out how to hook the neon lights up on my own, but it's a bad set-up.
I didn't know where to find power for a switch and for the lights, so i simply unplugged the horn and used it's wire and ground. Now my neon lights are only on while i'm holding down my horn button, which kinda sucks cause i usually have to let go to use the blinkers and shift.
Gotta be a better way right? Where else can i get power for the neon lights?
So what you're saying is that i should buy some connectors and attach them directly to my battery leads. Sounds a lot more simple than what i did with the horn, but like i said, i'm a dumbass when it comes to electrical systems.
I don't even know what kind of connectors to get. Guess i can ask the radio shack guy.
You had the right idea with the horn, but used a bad accessory. Try this. Do exactly what you did with the horn, but try using a fuse for power, like the headlight fuse. Then find someplace to ground it. Then go to the hardware store and buy a very small switch that will go in between the power and ground, and your neon light. Basically, without the switch to interrupt the current, your neon will be on constantly because your headlight is on constantly, right? Then mount the switch wherever you want. All a switch does, after all, is interrupt a constant flow of power.
