I agree with the LED idea, but having the LED in the mirror itself These should work.

I think this thread locked up earlier today.

The price is sure right! I think I saw similar on a Ducati a while back. Those mirrors might be the answer for buffeting too.

Do those mirrors blink on the rider's side or just the "oncoming traffic" side?
In other words can the rider see that the turn signal is on?

Yes, if you look closely in the pic there is an "arrow" of LEDs on the drivers side.

I believe they are about the same size (width) as the mirrors on the V-Strom, other Suzuki's, and Yamaha. So you are likely to need mirror extenders if you need them now. There are other functionally similar designs out there. As soon I find one that looks good ith the V-Strom I'll stock them, but right now Ebay is the best place to look.

I see that (once I really looked). I'll wait for you to let us know when you have them in stock.

Problems installing these mirrors

I bought these and tried to install them. I like the look but had problems getting them to work. After wiring them up, they wouldn't come on but the original turn signals worked normally. They ebay ad did say you might need a 50W 6 Ohm resistor so I guess I'll give that a try. Anyone else get them working?

I could be wrong, but I don't think the resistor has anything to do with the mirrors not working. The resistor is needed with seome flasher modules that expect to see a minimum resistance in the circuit. Here is the quote from the listing.

LED light usually use power between 0.5-2watt, sometimes after you install, the turn signals may blink too fast or not even blink, at this point, you will need 50watt 6ohm load resistor to bring the hyper flash down to normal, because the light bulb on our bike is regular 50 watt halogen bulb, so we need to make the power output balance on all of the turn signals, however we do not carry any load resistors, please purchase if necessary.

Again, I could be wrong, but if the stock flashers are working normally I suspect the mirrors are not wired correctly.

A very common mistake is wiring LEDs backwards. It does not hurt them, but they will not illuminate. That is the diode part of the light emitting diode (LED) at work. Try reversing the polarity.

I'm with Rick if you still have your old indicators in place there is no need for a resistor.

Unlike other globes LED's must be wired positive to positive and negative to negative.


Try powering them directly from your battery to ensure they work and you have the colours around the right way.
