Legal question about neon or LED glow.

Legal Question about NEW YORK STATE: Does anyone know the law for underglow or any led/neon lights on MOTORCYCLES SPECIFICALLY? I know we got exhaust decibel laws but I hear Harleys go by all the time that are so loud that stuff in my house shakes. Do cops look the other way on bikes most of the time? I want to drive with my lights on cause it looks nice but also makes me very visible for night driving. I have also heard it's certain colors they dont like, some don't care if they cant see the bulbs, ect ect. My light layout is below and none of my lights are visible, and they are all led.

Best way to find out is to ask the police. I think the law is no flashing, oscillating, rotating, gyrating, or moving red, white, or blue lights. But don't quote me on that.

Sweet setup by the way.

The twisties, not the superslabs, separate the riders from the squids.

Those lights are fantastic

Those lights are exactly what i want on mine. I have been doing some research and of course every state has their own laws and they aren't always clear. This website was the "best" resource i have found. Hope it helps.

It varies on your skill level as a mechanic, electrician, and what lights you buy. Also deciding where to mount takes time.

32

So if your lights are less than 32 candle power they don't have to be DOT.
