Turn signals

Ok well I finally got around to posting up some pics of my turn signals and stuff so here ya go.
Here is the fronts

Here are the back turn signals. Its a little hard to see but there are three led lights on the back of the passenger pegs.

Now I think they look cool but they aren't very effective. A few buddies who have ridden behind me claim you can barely see them in day light. Its a little better at night but still tough to see. I plan on adding some other signals to make them more effective, any suggestions. Also I have this on my bike,

Is that stock on my bike? (03 GSXR 750) I know some of the 1000 come with stabalizers but I thought it was only the liter bikes that had came stock with them.

Those suckers on the pegs look good...but I can see where they would be tough to spot.

That botom pick is a steering stabilizer. You're better off going aftermarket. Stock's are crap. Can't see the front too well because of the flash.

Yeah my buddy told me at night the right rear blinker is real easy to see because its right above the chrome pipe and it reflects off it, but he said that its such a strange looking light (with it bouncing off the pipe and all) that he isn't sure people will realize its a turn signal. And in day light almost completely worthless. They do look cool though.

Everything you have is SWEET but what I added to my GIXXER was 6 leds that I placed at the rear tail. I made 3 holes on each side making for 3leds to each. Since can be seen cleary at day even better at night. I will post a pic as soon as I can

That would be sweet. Im looking for other alternatives so any pics would be sweet. Like I said I will probably leave the ones on the pegs but I want to add some more visable ones.

These leds are the same size as the ones that come on the keychains. I chose red. But they also have them in blue, clear, orange and yellow. It makes the whole rear of the bike look totally clean. You can find these at your local automotive store like a Auto Zone or a Pep Boys. Even Walmart has them.
