Mirrors with turn signal built in???

Has anyone tried this type of mirror with turn signal built in? Looks like it may solve the problem of the turn sigs being so vulnerable and put them out there where they can be seen better. http://www.oldbikebarn.com/Blinker-Marker-Light-Mirrors

I liek the idea to be honest, high and wider then stock front signals. But do those bit our bikes easily and are there better images ?

I tried a set of similar mirrors from Emgo, but the signals were barely visible at all.

bought a cheap set of mirror signals on fleabay from HK for my gf's ninjette because i broke her mirror trying to adjust it

anyhoo, the led's are very bright, but very directional, and unfortunately, at the angles she needs to see in the mirrors makes the leds mostly visible cross lane, not directly in front of her these ones might be different though

You can get several variations of stick on amber led lights to adapt to your mirrors or handguards. Couple bucks on Ebay. Just do a search for Amber LED.

It says they fit all Zuks! They (left & right) are both 10mm and right hand thread. You may have to google to get a better image.

Warhammer, av8or, I was afraid of that. They build these things and they don't even know what they are for!

maggot; +1 Stickons could be aimed to work with your personal mirror angles, when you mount them (hot glue). I wonder if they could be seen from the side though?

I've made a couple of sets myself. Here's the first one: https://www.stromtrooper.com/showthread.php?t=21665

Next time around (after totaling that bike), I got wise and found some Hyperlites 2-way signals: https://www.stromtrooper.com/showthread.php?p=479516

"I am enthusiastic over humanity's extraordinary and sometimes very timely ingenuities. If you are in a shipwreck and all the boats are gone, a piano top buoyant enough to keep you afloat that comes along makes a fortuitous life preserver. But this is not to say that the best way to design a life preserver is in the form of a piano top.
I think we are clinging to a great many piano tops in accepting yesterday's fortuitous contrivings as constituting the only means for solving a given problem." - R. Buckminster Fuller
