anyone have these?

Does anyone have the led blinkers in there passenger rear sets? I saw a guy selling his 954 that had them and they looked pretty good. Said he got them off ebay. I found the guy and its $40 for me to send in the sets and he mounts and seals them and ships them back.

Re: anyone have these?

Lots of people on 600rr.net had/have them and I didn't really see any complaints.

Re: anyone have these?

I was worried with visibility. I still have stock signals. I dont like the look but I do like the safety of them. I was also curious of how you replace the leds when one blows.

Personally I haven't heard of anyone that has had an led burn out. They have a life expectancy of like 10,000 hours or something outrageous like that and you know how many years it would take for you to have your signals on that long? Barring an electrical malfunction on your bike I don't think you have to worry about them burning out. Now if one got broke from something hitting it then you'd probably have to send it back and get it redone.

As far as visibility I have seen a couple bikes with this done and the led's are very bright nowadays and they can be seen quite well. I would say they are pretty safe and will get noticed. If you like them i say go for it.

I've thought about doing this as well on my Blade but the undertail i just ordered has led blinkers built in it so I guess i won't be trying them any time soon.

Re: anyone have these?

I thought about doing this to the 54 but decided against it thinking the pipe would obstruct visibility.

It's amazing how stupid some people can be.

Re: anyone have these?

i've never heard of this until now, i think its a really good idea...

i agree with big pimpin about the visibility of stock signals... the undertail i want looks so good but i just don't think anyone will be able to see me signal, so i'm sticking with the good old tractor lights and mud flap

I love them to death, you get rid of all of the bulky crap that comes with the original signals and it really really cleans up the bike easy installation and a very nice look.

Here is a very crappy pic that does not do it justice...these are WAY brighter than stock, almost painful

SIGNALS

I hope that helps, I think that I have the guys name still but, it is in 4 hours away right now...I'll see what I can do though

Re: anyone have these?

Here is a link to a guy who is doing them, looks a lot cheaper than mine plus it is almost 2 times a much as what I paid...

don't get these ones

I think that the guys name was tristan and I found him on ebay too...the craftsman ship was awsome on mine, very good fit and finish and the led's are protected by the footpeg not out and exposed like the ones in the link...I'll do some more digging and see what I come up with...

Re: anyone have these?

There is some guy out of Orlando, FL that does them on ebay. A lot of people in this area have them and no complaints that I know of. I have ridden with guys who have them, they are very bright. High mount pipes get in the way of the right side though.

Did you have to install a resitor to keep them from flashing to fast?

Re: anyone have these?

I did not install one, but yes they do blink faster, not a big deal with me, I figure the more light the more attention... it's worked so far...I had my signals done by the guy in orlando(tristan) he was very good to deal with and would for sure recomend him...I just can't find his address right now...maybe check out 600RR.net(I think that is were I got his name from) Hope that helps

Thats the guy I emailed off ebay. He said $40 to put 6 leds in and $80 to install 12. I may do it. Was it a pain running the wires?

Re: anyone have these?

Nope, I had mine installed in under 25 minutes and that was including the time it took to get my tail section off...not for the faint of heart but there is a technique to it...I would say go for it, if you plan on keeping the passenger pegs on the bike...all in all

Re: anyone have these?

I think that WAGZ has some as well, do a search on his galleries, that should give you a better idea...
