Where can I find mirrors that have the turn signals built in?

My bike was set up for the track by the previous owner and there are no turn signals in the front.
I purchased a pair from a dealer here in town but they just dont look right on the bike. They look just like this pair but they are carbon fiber rather than chrome. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/LED-C...24701872QQrdZ1 I just dont like the way they look.

I think I would prefer installing new mirrors that have the signals built in. Do any of you have a pair like this or know of where I can find a set? I only saw one pair on ebay and I wanted to see if I could find them cheaper. I have a 01 f4i

Thanks,
Jim

IDK of any aftermarket ones. You might try to make some VFR or New GSXR 1000 mirrors fit.

They are a bit different looking. I think I would prefer the stock looking mirrors only with turn signals. I am having a hard time finding them.
thank you for your input though.

Will the GSXR mirrors bolt right on to my CBR or would I need to modify it? I havent seen how the look but Ill have to look into it if it will work.
Thanks

It all depends on how it bolts thru the fairing... go to your local Suzuki dealer and look at one on the showroom floor!

Here is a 05 06 Gixxer 1000 mirror with a tented lens.

I don't know if they are a direct bolt on and I do know that the wiring will have to be spliced but it could easily be made to work if that what you want.

I think the later model CBR1100 Blackbird had signals in the mirrors, and they might bolt on.

keep in mind that if you do get these to fit (which they are not a direct bolt up) you will most likely need to get a relay for them so they don't blink rapidly fast and then blow the bulb. just something to think about.

I forgot about those and I bet they would be a direct bolt on.

Your referring to the LED blinkers right. The Blackbird and Gixxer mirrors are standard bulbs and wouldn't need a resistor.

no, i'm referring to regular bulbs. LED's draw much less current than standard bulbs.

if he is going to use standard bulbs (i.e. stock turn signals) and run bulbs in your mirrors, you will definately need a relay for it or they will blow. plus unless you get a 3wire signal (most stock turn signals are 3 wire) they will flash rapidly fast.

The Honda came with three wire signals and standard bulbs. It'll be fine. Most LED signals need resistors to slow down the blink due to lack of draw on voltage.

i don't need resistors on my led's and they blink at regular speed. i had problems with regular bulbs in my fairings blinking hella fast with no relay.
