Can this be done easily by a non-Zero motorcycle shop?
I'm thinking of adding some ambient lighting bling to my SR.

I have installed multicolored led strips, and gas plasma lighting, to the powertank on my 2014 DS. I added an in-line fuse and DC-DC converter to the 12V accessory fixture. So far, it seems reliable, and I'll post photos later.

I've attached a photo of the right side of my 2014 Zero DS tank lighting. The white glowing strip is multi-color LED lighting. There is left-side symmetry and the LED strips are routed up the inside of the tank, so lots of glowing at night and easily seen outside strip during daytime. And yes, I will remove the black tie-wrap, used while the silicon glue cured. I have a pocket programmer to fade-sequence them from blues to reds to simulate nitrogen and neon gas optical emission spectrals.

The spheres/eyes/bulbs are optical gas plasma disk envelopes with 62mm aspherical lens. A small voltage generator powers them and I can set the spectral excitation frequencies and modulation via a switch for external sound, or preset, triggers. The disk has white fluorescent dots to enhance the optical plasma persistence.

it is only 25w instead off 55/60w and it is lot more efficient, a with light very powerfull
the only regreate it is that the fan is noisy when you are at the red light
