Front vent mounted lights/indicators?

Hi all-

I saw this picture on the VSRI web site and I am unable to find the vendor.. The only clue I have is that the guy called the lights "indicators", which leads me to believe that they might be a UK product and not a US product. Anyone have these, or know where to get them?

Looks like a pretty slick idea, how come we didn't think of that?

I don't see the turn signals in the pic, wonder if these are replacements for the turn signals.

Don't know where we're going, but no use being late.

I see small yellow bulbs in them, that sort of gives it away.

Personally I'll keep the vents Suzuki designed in to help cool the top of the rad and keep the heat away from me.

I don't have any new info yet, but yes they are turn signals... I was thinking it would make a nice pair of extra day time driving lights or aux lights for night time driving.. Just replace the bulb assembly.. Here are a couple of pics I found.

For it to be true ram air, wouldn't the vents need to be directly connected to the airbox? They just look like aesthetic vents to me.

the fairing is shaped to create a negative air pocket that forces charged air into the harmonic air box intake
