Arrow Mod List... DIU or take it to a professional

new mods on my 05 raven include a halo kit & HID's from bkmoto, a LED Light kit from motorcycleledlights.com, and front flasher relays like the ones shown in this video -->
...I'm basically rookie status with wiring (mostly due to intimidation). Are these mods difficult to figure out myself or should I leave it for a shop?

Re: Mod List... DIU or take it to a professional

the relay is a no brainer, at least on an 08.. As for the others, couldnt hurt to try

Re: Mod List... DIU or take it to a professional

Always do it yourself. There are plenty of people around willing to help if you get stuck.


Things I am sick of explaining on this forum:
  • What's the difference between an R6 and an R6s? HERE
  • Should I start on a 600 or a 250? HERE
  • How do I ask the forum a question and actually get an answer? HERE
  • Where do I find a map for my Bazzaz? HERE
  • Should I get a 520 kit for MOA POWAH? HERE
  • How does rotating mass work? HERE

Re: Mod List... DIU or take it to a professional

Like everyone else said. I don't know much about electrical, but I'm currently doing the work myself on my projectors/halos. I've practically built my whole bike from this forum and youtube. DIY and if you get stuck, just ask somebody. I haven't paid anyone to work on my bike yet...

Re: Mod List... DIU or take it to a professional

its just time to roll up the sleeves and learn something new!
...I have another question for everyone
I'm thinking about blacking out my foot controls and rear passenger peg sets. I've heard powder coating can get expensive since they're such small items and its more of a hassle to the powder coater. Would it be a terrible idea to try and use paint instead? my fear is it will rub and chip and that would really not be good to have to mess with it again... I like to do it right the first time and forget about it

You could have the pegs coated for under 100$ easily. Paint will work but it won't last, it'll chip off

Check my build thread and see what I did. But if you want the best in durability powdercoat them. That's the only way you can say you did it right the first time.
