i wish i had pics, if i had that then i'd probably have the ad i saw them in. they are LED and they are wired up in the space in the corner of your headlight. i liked it because i don't really think you can see my flushmounts too well from head-on. these you would be able to. i'll hafta do more digging. if i find my own link i'll put it up. they were pretty cheap too. under $100.

I saw that mod on kawiforums.com. I believe there is even a "how-to" thread stickied.

thats hot but what about the turn signals on the side of your bike? If you take them off sure would look weird with holes on the side?

let us know it turns out.. that would look cool though.

I know a guy that did that on his 954... it worked ok but I wouldn't use it as your only blinker.. which you already said you weren't doing... so go for it and post pics when you're done!

All I ever did to add blinkers to the pilot lights in the headlight was to change the bulbs and splice in the signal wires. No kit needed.

okay, so i got these about a week ago but haven't put them on yet. my f-i-l is less than enthused (to put it mildly) to work on my bike because it isn't a harley. i would do it myself, but i am just a girl and a bit uncomfortable attempting it. eventually they'll get done, i just need to find someone first.

here's a question for you all: i want to run these lights as turn signals in addition to my flush mounts. my husband seems to think doing this will overload my circuits. is that true? and if so, what do i do to avoid that? i'm not sure whether i should believe him or not, he knows as much about this stuff as i do. any help is appreciated.

You can add up the wattage of the extra bulbs, filaments, or LED's in the circuit. Two extra in the running lights circuit, and one (you won't have both sides blinking at the same time) extra on the turning circuit. It shouldn't be too much for the wiring. Anyway, the weakest point is probably the turn switch. If you do blow a light or signal fuse, you will need to put in a relay to the headlight or new lights. A relay is really a heavy-duty remote switch that takes all of the current.

no your battery should be able to handle it, just do it in parallel to your current signals.
