LED Blinkers Conversion

Thinking of putting on a LED Blinker Kit on my 18 650 XT. Looks like the OEM set is around $200. Has any one tried this set, or any aftermarket sets.

Thanks,
Sb

I bought these: https://www.mad8v.com/collections/se...ir-clear-lense

Great price and quality. Slight modification of the OEM mount to make them work, but I like the look and they are very bright. I installed the fronts to be on all the time. (except flashing when signalling of course) I've bought a few things from there and always great quality, fast shipping, good guy to deal with.

LED Blinkers Conversion

I would like to dispense with my front indicators, and instead have 5 LED running lights/indicators fitted to the front edge of the hand guards, wired as a daytime running light which flashes when you want to turn.
If someone can point me to a readily available kit of parts to do this Id be grateful.

Huh? What do you mean 5" LED? Like 5" round lights?

My turn signals are sort of DRL's that flash for turn signal mode; pretty easy to do with a couple relays.

I'm interested! Could you please elaborate about how you modified them to be running lights?

Barkbusters do the LED lights, getting them to work the way you want is another thing.

Also quite a few on Amazon for those who don't want to deal with purchasing overseas.

Why would anyone want to switch to LED turn signals? It just does not make sense to me. The money can be sbetter pent on real upgrades.
