Strut Light Installation
Note: Some models may experience brake light issue with amber LED lighting up as a brake light instead of red LED. To fix this issue you will have to take it to your local Harley-Davidson Dealership to have them hook it up to their Digital Technician and readjust brake function as noted. It will need to be programmed as a dedicated brake light and set up in body control module as dedicated brake light.
Here are a few quick and easy tricks for a strut light install

- Make sure the strut light covers the hole in the fender
- Run the wires through the hole and route them wherever needed
