    OK, I'm trying to decide what to do blinker-wise on the bike. Right now I've got some 'flushmounts' that are a LOT bigger than I imagined them being when I ordered them...

    There's a set of LED flushmounts on Ebay, that look kinda cool...

    or I could strip the panels, bondo over / shave the blinker holes, and repaint it, so there wouldn't be a blinker on the mid fairing at all, and install 'euro-style' running lights, but instead of wiring them as running lights, wire them up to blink...

    What you guys think?

    They'll fit, but they'll just sit on top of the fairings.


    The flushmounts you speak of are made by Gregg's or Hammythecanman, and they're like $120.

    Yeah, they're expensive as balls...lol


    I'm leaning more towards option C....


    I'm just not liking the gigantic-ass tumor blinkers at all anymore...

    That, and the 'stealty' front blinkers would match my uber-pimp rear blikers that I've got rigged up....

    Cover each side of the bike in paint that's electrically reactive- then wire it all up to apply a current to each side when you hit the blinkers. You could have the entire side of your bike blinking when you hit the signal- and not have any visible light anywhere on the side of the bike!

    The taillights on the 01-02 R6's are LED, and you can't integrate them yourself without a SHITLOAD of work or sending them off...it's a LOT easier with traditional-bulb-style taillights

    Sure you can- it's easy. They're just not far enough from the center line to be any good as signals.

    I like seeing turn sigs SMALL ONES if they're in line with the bike I think they look pretty nice. I can't stand the flush mounts like you have they tend to be an eye sore (as you seem to also think)

    Cat eyes. $12-14 a set.

    best part about them is they stick out some so you wont have to worry about the police buggin you.

    [​IMG] your right but it can be done. I used to work at a bike shop out here and have seen it done. you have to have an extra set of taillights, cause you need the circuit board, out here it runs 100 do have it done. but the end result is :thumbsup:
