go to lunaraccents.com. They don't sell neon tubes, exactly. They sell LED tubes. You can pay more $$$ to hjave a second or third set of LEDs installed for extra brightness. I ordered two 4.5 inch tubes (one with an extra set of LEDs), and a 22 inch tube, all in blue. Total cost was 82 bucks to my door. Then I just bought some wiring and a rice boy switch from Autozone and did the install in about 6 hours. Looks DAMN nice. As soon as I get my digi-cam, I will have to post up pics.

Welcome to the forums.:)

You don't have an Advance Auto Parts or an Auto Zone anywhere around you? A car parts store like that would be an ideal place to get what you are looking for. How far is the closest place like that away from you?

Very true, they do often have those harder to find lights, however they are also often marked up... For example; I saw a pack of 4 LEDs for $40.oo at a stereo shop that I could order though a local auto parts store for $14.oo. Just something to keep in mind.

I haven't seen a LED tube up close... LEDs are directional, in that they are very bright when looking directly at them as opposed to the side. So, depending on how the tubes are mounted, yes I'd agree that the LED tubes are brighter than the neon tubes.

yes. the led are much more bright than the neon, and also drain a lot lees of power. I going to get mine from ebay item # 7908271015. it came with a cigarette lighter adapter with switch, witch I really don't care too much but is onw of the lowest I saw so far.

I installed many of cold cathod lights on pc's and they are not bright, not even close to the neon tube. let's put in this way on order of bright. 1st the LED bars, second the neon tubes and 3er the cathod lights. Sory for telling you this but the cathod light is not for your bike, is very delicate regarding movement, so you may going to put a new tube avery week. sorry [B)]

Why not try a combo?

I'm going to buy four LED tubes from ebay ($35+ s&h), then use some windshield wiper nozzle LED lights, that I had sitting around, to accent illuminate certain spots.
