How bright are they, daytime / night time, and are they visible from both the front and the side?

Who cares they are in the front. You already got the invisible hot bodies undertail, what are you worried about being seen for? The back is more important.

They are more visible than the hot bodies undertail.

I have short stalk blinkers on the rear in ADDITION to the undertail. The new blinkers are brighter than the OEM signals. Check the pics again.



The secondary blinkers are attached to the license plate bracket. This isn't a good pic, but I don't have a digital camera. Visibility was the issue, that's why I added blinkers. The LED hotbodies supply suck.

yeah these are great at night, not as bad as hot bodies in day light but you lose a lot of visibility going from stock to them.

Actually, I don't think I do. I've still got stock on the front, and those on the rear and compared the two. I think these are brighter and more noticble when they turn on. The OEM were bigger, but they were there and in that color when they turned on they didn't get much additional attention. These don't show much when riding, but when the go from clear (off) to bright amber, there is an "OH" factor that gets them noticed

I guess I'm in the same boat as Pucky. I've been wanting to drop the stock front blinkers for a while now too, but I don't want to sacrifice being seen for being stylish.

I have to agree with Trip on the visibility for the front. Blinkers aren't necessary at all in the front (nobody cares) but a must on the rear.

I got em in a group buy for cheaper than that. $100 shipped, saved a little cash, but still expensive.

F the front blinkers. Vol/Trips flushies look sick.

Got a pic of them, I am looking for some long stalk LEDs to replace my bulb ones to match my LED flushies and I don't feel like going to an undertail.

I'd be willing to get the watsen's if we did a group buy to get them cheaper.

They have a group buy going all the time at svrider.com. You can get em for $100 bucks. Look in the for sale section for it or PM Matt McHenry.
