I bought LED ones first that was this shape. They weren't as bright and they also cost more than double what these cost for a pair of LEDs vs 4 of these, plus I would need to get a timer because they flashed too quick. Price wasn't the big issue to me though, it was the lack of stalk selection. They only had short stalks in the LEDs and I needed a long stalk for the rear or they hid behind the license plate. These had long and short in the same style, plus they don't look bad at all since I got the clear lenses. I don't think this will be final, this was extremely cheap way to get it to look cool while I think about what I really want. I ended up only paying about $25 total for this little conversion and it looks a lot better than $25. The LEDs they had in stock were $40 for a pair, $25 for the timer. So I just decided to save because I will probably end up getting the watsen design flush mounts later and some kind of integrator or undertail for the rear.

I will have to think about it, jtemple. I like keeping my stock stuff, so probably not.

Hmm. My LED's are bright as ****. Even in daylight you can see them great. I don't have the resistors and they blink fast, but I like it that way.

Understandable, I keep my stock stuff, too.

Mine did that on my 9R...but I figured I get more blinkers per second and therefor more attention.

The reason why they blink faster is because they draw so little power the computer thinks the bulb is blown and it blinks faster, just like it does on your car when a bulb is blown.

These were so fast that you couldn't hardly see it blink, it was almost like it was on all the time. They were also really really dim, I didn't think it was a good idea to even have them on when they were blinking. I have all the parts to slow it down with the amount of resistors I have, but didn't feel like it was worth the effort for that amount of money and it being that dim.

Probably because they were pieces of sh?t lights. Probably a better brand would of worked better. I am happy with what I have for now.

Vol...all you need is the correct resister size to put inline to each blinker... it will fix it!

Yeah I know, I am an electrical engineer, LOL! I could have equations to figure out the exact size. I just didn't like the looks of the LEDs I bought for the price. Plus, the rear stalks were way too small. These look really good, especially where they were at tonight.

Do you have a link to the ones you bought? Heck, for $15 I'll pick some up. I'm on the Cycle Gear site, just not sure if Im buying the right ones or not.

I can probably use the shortest stalks they have for the front, since I'm on the naked version. The rear though, I don't want my signals hiding behind the license plate on my Hamicad...

Long stalk: these stick out from the hamicad...the shorts won't.

I have some cleaner pics if you need to see some.

I am going with flush mount LED's in the front, and the tail integrator kit in the rear.
I know neither are DOT approved and won't pass the PA inspection, but I'm not going to get mine inspected until I get busted...then I will put all OEM lights back on, get it inspected, then put all the aftermarket lights back on.

I need to find the cheapest flush mount LED's for the front that I can.

I probably will eventually do that, don't know why I didn't to begin with, oh well...

Oh Jtemple, it won't come with the same connection that is on the SV indicators right now. You can either use single wires like I did and rig them to the connections or buy an actual connection conversion. The fronts use a wye connection and the backs use a real small square connection...

I hope jtemple understands all this stuff. I know VOL and I do since we are dealing with electrical, resistors and ***** all day long.

I've got bins and bins and more bins at work filled with LED's and resistors. what can I rig up

Yeah, the electrical part was simple for me, it was all the work to get the stuff off and on was the hard part. I am not suppose to be using tools, people could file a greivance against me at work... Actually I shouldn't be wiring either...
