Greetings, fellow Strommers...
In an attempt to "downsize" a bit on load (even with the stator recall done and having installed a Roadstercycle R/R), so I can have some additional piece of mind running some heated gear and aux lights, I switched all my lights (including headlights) to LED. For the turn signals, I initially used the round barrel-type bulbs. (I should mention that I have a Kisan signalMinder installed, which runs the turns signals as running lights, and has a timer to shut of the blinkers lest I forget to do so).
After a ride one day, my riding buddy mentioned that my turn signals weren't very bright, and that he felt others might have a hard time noticing them, both as running lights AND flashing as signals.
I looked all over (including search here) for a solution, trying to find something that has a more forward-facing lamp to brighten things up. I stumbled across the Sylvania Zevo Super Bright LEDS, and WOW! WHAT a difference. The standard bulb is 21 watts...the Zeno is 1.7 watts.
So if my figuring is correct, I went from 84 watts to 6.8 watts, a savings of 77.2 watts, which should be MORE than enough to run a heated liner close to high, if needed.
There's actually a less bright Nevo model bulb, but interestingly enough, it pulls more wattage...not much but a bit more. It should be noted that the packaging says, "For Off Road Use Only" but I really doubt I'm gonna get tagged by an LEO with shielded lights. The attached photo has the signal on the left blinking...bright at night, so more than adequate during the daytime.
Just food for thought in case others are looking to do a similar upgrade...I found them at local O'Reilly's and while not cheap ($24.99/pair), they have a 'lifetime guarantee' and are supposed to be rated at 40,000 hours. I haven't been out on the bike (2013 Wee in my case) since doing the upgrade but I think the results will be more than satisfactory...
