Re: Flush mount turn signals

Ok Flame me if you may but I have a question about flush mounted turn signals. I just purchased a pair of the turn signals but I noticed that they only have two wire leads. One is 'Black and the other is 'Black' with a 'white' stripe. Now the stock turn signals on the 03 954 have three wire leads. Does this matter? If not what do I do with the other wire lead? Thanks in advance.

Re: Flush mount turn signals

The third wire is for your running lights. I think its illegal to not have them.

Re: Flush mount turn signals

Most flushmounts seem to be available as single or dual filament models. The dual filament ones have 3 leads. They're used in the front (by DOT regs) and optionally on the rear as running lights, as noted above.

You can legally use the ones you have in the rear, if you want.

BTW, which ones did you get? I'm looking for clear lens flushmounts (dual filament) for the front that are removable (rather than taped on) but pretty small.

Flasher has instructions on the wiring on his site:

I'm not sure that it is. My bike came from the factor without front running lights. They are only signal lights. I thought so too but... eh.. maybe not.

Not in this state. It's actually illegal to have ANY amber light on the rear illuminated for a purpose other than a turn indicator.

Your state may vary. Check your state's regs. I don't have front running lights. Never did. But then again I also have the Euro switchgear and clear parking lights (mounted inside the headlamps). Plus I can run no lights, running/parking lights or full lights and it has the high-beam flasher. So maybe mine was *supposed* to have the front ambers as running lights but if so they did a lot of mods because there are only two wires running to my front and it's all factory loom.

YMMV.

Re: Flush mount turn signals

Thanks guys. That link explained everything perfect! I purchased the Lockhart Phillips clear flush mount. Med size. Believe me they fit perfectly and you don't have to drill at all. I should have bought dual filament so that I could use them as running lights but no biggie. Thanks again, you guys Rock!!

Educate me here. Why would the install take two hours? Why did he have to remove both sides of the fairing?

Curious, that's all.

Re: Flush mount turn signals

well to quote from flasher's site ... '- Remove the ram air cover, lower fairings & inner fairing to provide maximum access. ' *

removing the fairings isnt required, but adding the flushmounts was one of the very first mods i did to my bike ... my first bike, btw ... and i wanted to have as much room to operate as possible. *there was also some concern about the flushmounts pressing against the inner fairing too much.

Dunno about that... I have a ducati monster in the garage that stock, doesn't run the front lights as running lights... They are only on when you engage the turn signal...

AH.. OK. My Duc is the same way. Yeah.. I don't think it's illegal. Using those lights is illegal (unless they have a DOT approval code on them) but who really get's popped for that?
