Hey everybody, about to attempt my first mod on my 2021 Vespa Sei Giorni II and I'm a little nervous. I picked up a set of LED switchbacks and turn signal lights from scooterwest.com (SKU: MI200-GTS-BK) the install looks pretty straight forward (for older Vespa GTS models) but the Sei Giorni II has LED lighting all around and I'm wondering if it's easier than advertised (without any splicing). Just wondering if anyone has upgraded their Vespa's with LED lighting with this kit and how it went, I can't find much info on it, thanks!

I did it! Despite having LED lighting the lights still need to tap into existing wiring for the daytime running lights so splicing is involved (but it's easy). It definitely took a bit of time but if you go slow and follow the steps it's really easy. The only tricky part was the rear lights, do not tap into the cable that plugs directly into the turn signal, tap into the wiring that goes into the main rear light (cut open the cable wire and fish out the yellow cable with a black stripe). Cheers and happy modding!

One more pic of the front! Another thing to keep in mind is that the included splicing kit sometimes doesn't cut through the power wire so make sure you use a pair of pliers to clamp down on the splicer (listen for a satisfying snap), otherwise the daytime running lights won't turn on (you'll still be able to use the turn signal though).
