Folks,

New to the versys forum hope you can help me out.

New to me 2011 Versys 650.

I want to install a Kisan SM3 signal minder I had on my vulcan 900 and want the running light and modulating brake light feature. In Georgia we must have red brake lights only.

I cant find re lens covers anywhere for the Versys signals, are they available? If no what about red bulbs? I can't find incandescent red bulbs (just clear or amber). Can I use leds? If yes what is the min lumen and where can I get them?

Thanks for you help.

P.S. Is there a list of the various light bulbs used on this bike anywhere? I scoured the owners and service manual and did not see a list of the bulbs. Did I just miss the list?

Go to a Hobby Store (or Ebay) and purchase a Testors a can of spray enamel #1605 Transparent Candy Apple Red (approximately $5.00).
2 light coats inside ... and it will look like OEM! :D

Thanks for the tip on the paint, have you done this yourself? Just want to confirm first hand experience. Also can you recommed leds that will fit? Looking for some leds in the $25 for a pair

I have not done it myself but have seen the results on a fellow rider's bike. It comes out real well if you take your time doing it. It's easy and inexpensive to do.

Sorry. I don't know of any leds sold for $25 for a pair that would do the job.

I will give it a go and post back on the results.

I got the paint you suggested and applied 4 light coats to the inside of the rear lens cover. Turned out quite well, could be a little darker so I amy apply a few more coats in the future. Thanks for the tip.
