The inserts were purchased from ebay. I removed the crystal eyes, drilled the eye sockets, installed 3mm 12VDC LED lights then reinstaled the crystals. Sounds easy but it wasn't.

These things really light up the side of my bike which is the main reason I did it. Now I can be seen clearly at night from the side.

No, it doesn't sound easy. Looks great!
