These LED bolts add something

Per my Driven rotors review, I'll address three things about this purchase: looks, performance, value.

LOOKS - we'll start with this: I bought a set of these DEI LED bolts because I'm an LED 'ho. You should see my 'Busa - counting each LED bulb individually I have probably 200+ of 'em covering my bike. So, the set of DEI button head LED bolts I bought were literally just an accent in a sea of LEDs.

Howev'ah! They are a nice accent as I placed them up by my mirrors/trailing edge of my windscreen (and I do have a pic to include). The other LEDs cover the rest of the bike but having these way up high helped with "light" balance.

Specifically about the DEIs - the bolts themselves look clean and bright. Not shoddy or unpolished looking even up close.

PERFORMANCE - the LEDs set into the Allen head bolts are bright. I bought red. Wiring them is easy as well. I use insulated male/female connectors on all my LED lighting so just crimp two on and you're done.

CAVEAT EMPTORE (and this is why I didn't rate these 5 Stars) - the spot-welded wires on the backside of the bolts can get pulled off easily.

I had to remove my fairing for a CCFL Halo 2 headlight installation and the connector snagged something and "pop", off came the wiring where it was welded.

VALUE - so, I have a second set on order. I could (and will try) to re-spot-weld the one I have but I fear the connection won't take/hold so I'm taking no chances. If the wiring at the spot-weld hadn't popped off so easily I'd say these bolts were a great value but... now I have to order a second pair.

Also, consider this when ordering these if you're planning on using them all over - it's all fun and beautiful light show once the work is done but underneath you'll have a spaghetti forest of wires that can interfere with bodywork R&R and are at risk of damage when working on the bike (or at least inducing a "blessing" fit from the mouth). Obviously, I'm assuming these DEI bolts would be in addition to a more serious LED effort.

And make sure you label your add-on/LED wiring so you can keep track of what's what.

DEI bolts up close - you can see the right mirror somewhat illuminated as well. At night at Sonic.
LED light show. You can see the DEI bolts up high by the mirror/trailing edge of the windscreen.

I have an 03 SV 1K S and Im looking to use these in place of the windscreen bolts which have an inner guide nut that is a 5mm. Will these fit? Are they Metric or SAE?

A: The screw measurement is 5/16", so if you can remove your inner guide nut and measure the opening it may work. Length is 3/4" and button head is 9/16". Installed with a 4.5mm allen. They have their own nuts which can be seen in the larger picture.

If you could please tell me how many are in the package that would be very helpful and are they available in a black bolt instead of the stainless steel finish?
