1 Set (with 2 tubes) is fitted in the Cabin light system.

all strobes are with speed controller.

but let me tell u this is not the streetglow kit. these kits are chinese made and are sorta unreliable in the long run ... the longest a strobe set lasted me was bout 6 months

its costs Rs300 ... In Noida shud be less in delhi or mumbai. u get condom type slid in caps for the tubes (hehe!) in greens,reds,blues etcs i've put white all around ...

Result : AWESOME EYE CANDY on the road.

will post the pic of the STROBE kit cover tom

cheers

The strobe with the BLACK Control box is a HIGH VOLTAGE strobe ... i did try this but the major problem i faced was of reliablity it so damn unreliable .. plus there is no feature for modulation as u can't set it to faster or slower.

There are strobes with a BLUE control box ... its a translucent blue box with speed controls and a on off switch thats a better one than this i'll post pictures soon


Another thing to note : Strobes need a contant power supply its advisable to run them with the engine on ...
