I just got the new undertail and started looking for new turn signals for the bike front and rear.

I think it was Fictionnn who had mentioned a certain brand that was worth the money.

Just simple short stalks, front and back, but I want something that isn't cheap like the Ebay sets for 15 bucks. I've seen too many short and blow bulbs all the time and just fade and look like crap.

Any suggestions?

I have the Hot Bodies for my fronts and I picked up some decent LED's and installed them on my Rear Pegs for my back turn signals.

But the Hot Bodies Fronts are Flush Mount but are pretty bright at night

Looking for for the short stalk design. Not much into the flush mount for some reason. I've seen an RC with the short stalks and really like the way it looked.

Thanks for the suggestion though.

I believe Targa Makes a nice Shorty Turn Signal as well as Fender Eliminator Kit....They use bright LED's usually 18-20 per signal reflective material with an inline Flash Controller...so they tend to run on the higher side...50-60 for a pair

Great! Thanks for the heads up on that Doc. I'll check them out online and then hit up the sponsors to see if anyone can get them.

I have them on my bike. They are great! Made of aluminum, powder coated the color of your bike, and 10 LEDs. Granted you're gonna pay for them, $135 Canadian, about $115 US shipped. Great warranty as well. I have seen them on one other bike, a Suzuki at the SC '06 New Years Day cruise and no where else. Get them, you won't be disappointed.


Here's my bike with them on:

I'm also running Clear Alternatives integrated lights in the back.

I looked on their site and the signals are made out of milled aluminum. So carbon isn't possible. You can go to pplenty of stores and get those "carbon look" signals for $20, but you get what you pay for.

Gregg's (http://www.greggscustoms.com/prod_yamaYFR1_04.html) for the R1 look awesome

Gregg's (http://www.greggscustoms.com/prod_honCBR1000.html) is pretty tight on the CBR too

I've seen Gregg's and they're a nice option. I as well was looking for something not flush mounted so they weren't an option for me.

Best short stalk looking quality signals in my opinion.

Rizoma "Track '01" Led Turn signals.

I have them on my bike and they are the brightest leds I've ever seen.

Not Cheap though at $33 "each" not per pair. Itallian and PJ's Parts is the only US disributor I know of. PJ is great though, Great service.

He posted up small demo of the leds in action on youtube.
