Possible to make Homemade integrated turn signals?

I came across this on ebay

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/TURN-...77361451QQrdZ1

and was wondering if it was possible to make a kit myself. I'm thinking that the signals are just led that are mounted by drilling a hole in the rear of the taillight lens and siliconing a led in place. Has anyone ever tried anything like before?

It might work, but you'd also have to buy the Yamaha sticker for the back of your 900rr.

LEDs are directional, meaning they are only visible if they are pointed straight at your vision. So your LEDs need to be point in the direction that you want the other drivers to see. A filament bulb is usually better for turn signals due to compliant wattage draw and uniformly dispersed lighting..

That kit is not an led. It takes a two bulb system and makes one bulb flash for the turnsignal, while the other stays lit for the brake. You could do the setup yourself with 2 relays if you have a 2 bulb side by side setup.

right...most leds are directional but you can get a wide angle led OR get a 360 degree viewable LED.
This will be my winter project:
A high visibility taillight
two middle rows are running lights and four additional rows are brake lights.

Re: Possible to make Homemade integrated turn signals?

If your goal is to have high visibility rear lighting then you would theoretically want to spread out the light. For example you would prefer an LED strip alongside of your tail piece for a high visibility turn signal. These LEDs could also double as brake lights. The worst is to have a concentrated area of lighting.
