Flush Mount LED Turn Signals

Hi there,

I recently broke the right, front turn signal on my 650 (unfortunately, not the first time it has happend). I want to replace the stock units with flush mount LEDs. Has anyone done this? I'm having trouble locating the replacement units in Canada. Lots available on Amazon.com but they don't ship to Canada. Read some positive reviews on a Canadian supplier called "Watsen Design" but they aren't taking orders. Any input you have on where I might locate these would be appreciated.

Thanks.
Glenn.

Tried an Auto Parts house????? Local Truck stop??

(some here, myself included, don't recommend flush-mount signals as "we" think they tend to blend-in with the headlights.........[being too close].........and are not seen as easily)

Flush mount suck. These are my all time favorite led replacements, buy them. They are hella bright and good looking, flexible stalk, hard aluminum body.

Good timing considering I busted one of mine on Saturday.

Are they as simple as it looks to swap them out?

Is the stalk flexible enough that they shouldn't break the next time my bike takes a nap?

I got an led flasher from a member here, if only the front, they aren't bad, but annoying.

Yes they are flexible.
