Lightbulb New LED blinker option

I just replaced one of my front blinker bulbs with this from Amazon. Didnít find the regular bulb locally, so thought I would give them a try.

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

$17 for two and way brighter than stock. Regular blink speed, not the hyper-blinker I have heard about. Iíll let the group know in a few weeks if they are still working good.

I myself bought the Yamaha LED plus for rear and front with the additional dimmer made by a Polish biker.

Thanks for that link.

I replaced the front signals with micro-sized turn signals after tipping the bike over and having the factory signal hit the pavement and crack the fairing. Twice! The shorter signals won't hit the ground now, just the handle bar end. And of course I haven't tipped it over since replacing them...

Anyhow, the new signals are LED and are indeed much brighter than factory. I've been mulling the idea of replacing the bulbs in the rear signals with LEDs to make them brighter but haven't found a simple replacement that gets good reviews. I'll be checking out the ones you linked.

Where did you get those? I dropped my bike and had the fairing crack!

R&G Racing Aero LED Turn Signals https://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/...d-turn-signals

You'll also need resistors to match the load so they blink at a normal rate, plus an adapter connector makes it a simple plug-play.

https://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/...ignal-adapters

Then you need to mount them on the fairing with some sort of adapter plate. R&G now sells an adapter or you can make your own out of black plastic. I'd buy the adapter but they didn't make them when I did the mod.

I also had my bike tip over, land on the blinker and crack the fairings. Stupid F***ing design, come on japs - you invented 6 sigma and FMEAs..

Anyways, I went with mirrors with led blinkers built in for the front signals purchased from eBay. I mounted a new brake light with integrated turn signals -super bright! - and eliminated the rear fendor at the same time. Highly recommend. Looks great and much safer. The light flashes 3 times when I hit the brakes and the turn signals flash like the mustangs.

I have just ordered some of these https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Pair...862333482.html
They are 3 wire for an indicator and a riding light.
I also saw these. Watch the video to see how they bend but will not break. https://www.aliexpress.com/item/2018...acelog=mytrace

Both links worked fine for me, using Firefox. Also worked fine using Chrome without logging in, however the second link went to homepage the first try. Please state what browser you are using and operating system.

I'm using Chrome and Windows 7.
But I found that it works when I right click on your link, copy it and paste it in my browser so all is well.

Want to know something funny? I learned about aliexpress reading the link you posted (but without visiting it).
I got to aliexpress homepage and made search for 3 wires turn signals and found exactly what I was looking for and bought four of them. And you know what? Now that I can visit the links you posted, I realise that they are the same exact ones posted under your first link.

I ordered 2x amber/amber for the front and 2x amber/red for the rear. Hope they will work fine. Let me know when you got yours and how they work.

Thanks!
