01 zx6r turn signals...

Hello,

Does anyone know where to find DOT approved turn signals for an 01 Ninja zx6r (600J)? Im looking for both the front and the rear. The bike needs to go through level 3 inspection in AZ and we require DOT approved turn signals in this state to pass. I have been on e bay, and checked other online stores, but no luck. If anybody knows, please let me know. I dont care if they are OEM or flush mounts, just DOT approved and ill be happy.

Thanks

I think stock is the only dot approved ones.

Any blinker other than flush mount with yellow lenses should pass inspection.

well now that I know that any 90's series turn signal will fit my bike Ill need to conduct a more in depth search on e bay. I really wish I asked this question a month ago...

Thank you all for your generous offers and help!!!

Whoever offered me their OEM turn signals I will gladly take them up on the offer. Ill pay for shipping. Shoot the details over to me, we can exchange info, whatever is easiest for you. Just let me know! Thanks!!!

ZX636 said he has a whole set he could send, but i have the rear signals if u need em i could send. Check with 636 on the set and lemme know, but i think the same day solution is a cycle salvage place.. prob 10.00 for a set and have em the same day... but lemme know.

I will check the local spots for the turn signals first...Im sure you guys know this but you want to know what a Kaw shop quoted me the cost for one turn signal. Thats ONE, not a set, one. $45.OO! Multiply that by 4=$180 And of course you have your labor charges. Which brings the total up to......$220 . I think its cheaper for turn signals for my Prelude! Yea, I think I'll take a look around the area first. Thanks Scotts for your offer. But like I said Ill check the local spots first.


Oh, and youre right GasMan

I might bite the bullet...

went to the salvage yard yesterday. I was looking for the F/R turn signals, right passenger bracket (also "holds" the muffler), and a radiator cap. It was a good news, bad new situation. The good news is a found the radiator cap. Now the bike can run for longer than 5 minutes and I can ride it. The bad news is I did not find the passenger bracket, and I CANT FIND DOT APPROVED TURN SIGNALS!!! I know I can find the brackets easy on ebay. But as far as turn signals go, Im having a really hard time finding them in Phoenix and ebay...

Im getting to the point to bite the bullet and just buy them off the Kawasaki dealer that charges $45 a signal. This sucks...all the salvage places tell me to come in with my old signals which doesnt help cause the bike has terrible flush mounts on them right now, and aftermarket ones in the back. If anybody has any info on where I can get 98-02 DOT, OEM or BOTH turn signals front and rear, please let me know!

Thanks

I'm sure you could make the Honda set fit... they can't be that much different...

Sweet. Ill ask and see if i can get them to fit . At this point though,Ill MAKE them fit. I really dont care what they are, just need to pass inspection. You know, AZ residents are allowed to have concealed firearms with a concealed weapons permit, but not allowed to have Non-approved DOT lighting? Oh well...Thanks Gas Man this would be a great help! Ill have to ask around for fittings, but I hope we can arrange something out!

OK, here is the situation. I have a mechanic coming today to pick up the bike and replace the fork seals, the bent header (thats a whole other story if your interested, dont be its boring), and check all fluids especially the brakes. I also asked him about turn signals. He said he could find something that would work. DOT approved. Then, another twf member e mailed me saying he has an 01 zx6r and has his OEM turn signals front and rear willing to offer! So, if the mechanic falls short (which I doubt, this guy does good work), and the zx6r turn signals deal doesnt work, then Ill give you a call. No disrespect or nothing Gas Man, but I would prefer the OEM turn signals as opposed to Honda ones if I had the chance. I just want to get this thing inspected and road worthy ASAP. I thank eveybody for thier help and support.
