Default BMW made me a settlement !!!!

So after complaining about the signals they told me the deal with they can come into the US.. Then I asked how do victory bikes, which are made in the US, have LED lights? I guess they just didnt wanna hear me complain anymore so the gave me my very own Pit box HP4 carpet... lol...Really didnt want it but It was a nice gesture though...

Yeah I agree...Like I said it was a nice gesture... They didnt have to do anything.. But I'm still confused how the Panigale S has LED lights all around and we get flagged for signals...

I believe its not a matter of whether it is led. Its a matter that this particular set of led signal has not yet/dont want to/failed to obtain dot approval. Thus BMW would not include it in the sale in case of insurance claim dispute.

Default Settlement

I quite agree that Rizoma's are gorgeous LED Lights and you do not have to worry about running a resistor if your dealer tells you that Poo-Poo becuase Rizoma's run on 10 watts just like the factory wattage.

My dealer made me a settlement, which was the European LED lights at cost and they would install them for me. I already have the Ilmberger C.F. rear hugger and Tail Tidy, which I will post a new thread showing the install and how they look.
