I'd get four of the same ones, whatever you get and be creative about where you mount them... And my on the clear lenses and CF look... However, the clear lenses could really work on your bike... CF though... still

haha well i think im gonna go with the all black lens for the front, and there is only one place to mount them cause there is a big ol hole where the stock signals were at on the fairings so i have to put them back there...it is a clean look though...and as far as the carbon fiber look, i think it is kinda ugly too but for some reason with the rear signals it kinda fit well and looked good with the bike...

They make inserts for the front signals so you can use the stalk kind... that being said, the flushmounts look much better... I still say do what you can to match the front with the rear... otherwise it'll look cheap...

I may go with these same signals on the front of my R1.

The thing I don't like about flushmount signals is that I want oncoming traffic to be able to see my signal.

I haven't decided about the rear yet. I may go with the intergrated taillight/signal light that I've seen.

oncoming traffic should be able to see the lights...if your stopped they will more than likely see the blinking, even if they dont its better to wait for all the cars to go first anyway

i like the integrated rears but i think the visibility is better with seperate units but i guess its all about preference

I think we agree.

What I meant was I am thinking of going with these INSTEAD of the flushmounts because I want oncoming traffic to be able to see my signal and yes I think they could see these.

Cagers barely see the bike, I dont think they pay our blinkers any attention at all
