goyaohboyajr - you're right it was a good choice to get these to get rid of the stock HARRY POTTER BOX DVD set stock signals!!!! LOL

To all - thank you all for your feedback. I'm still figuring out if I should simply get NEW brighter incandescent 10w + bulbs, or LED bulbs?

I'm even thinking of INTERCHANGING the mirrors altogether....i know there's a small hole at the bottom of each of the mirrors to allow water to pour out and would probably cover it and make a new one at the bottom, once they are switched. They definitely would show MORE of the lights facing forward more!

I dunno..just a thought....

I think the situation is more the very low intensity of the bulb than the position/angle. When I have made my LED inserts I'll let you know

Do any of you know if there are incandescent bulbs higher than 10 watts for these turn signals?

Again, for the mirrors we've been talking about below:

so I got mine, like I had said, and the one thing I've noticed is that they are really pointy and they seem to stick out more than I had hoped. I ended up trading my severely dented and rusted tank for them so at least I don't have too much cash value invested.

Personally if I had to buy them again, I wouldn't....

But I guess at least they are better than having stock blinkers and stock mirrors. I guess....


^ try your link, it still not working like you want

I've found this website, but these bulbs are for CARS.

Here's the mirrors with TURN SIGNALS link again, for those who weren't able to open it?

Brighter bulbs

I changed my rear indicators for some brilliant little ones off eBay Australia - 21 W halogens and they are superbright. To modify integrated mirror or other indicators, find a supplier who can supply 21 W halogen lamps AND a BAY9S base. The Y means the locating pins are at 120 degrees rather than 180 (directly opposite) My rear indicators cost about AUD 47 delivered in Australia for a pair from eBay, so if you really wanted to, buy these, strip out the lamp base and lamp and stick them in the assembly you have.

Just search eBay Australia for "tiny halogen indicators" and ignore the bike type, they are all the same. Mine have done about 5,000 kM faultlessly.

Just finished my LED replacements for the weak bulbs... Much, much stronger flash (I used high intensity LED's) Man, during testing I looked directly into the diodes and I still have orange spots floating around in front of me

PS... They cost me around $30 for the pair and the LED's will last forever...
