what front blinkers are you running

I've got to get front blinkers. The flushmounts were just those $15 cheapies that poke in way to far and one has a shatterd lens. I've already returned 2 new sets from ebay cause of the stupidly long mounting depth. So far the only decent fitting one's I've found are Gregg's and Protons. Any other proper fitting AM blinkers?

Ive got some from Watsen. Very nice build. Very bright. Color-coded to your bike. Completely flush with the fairing.

Do they have the shallow mounting depth so it doesn't hit the inner plastic? That's one of my concerns, don't want to cut or bend anything. Pix?

I've got Proton's. to be honest at first i did not think i would like the look.....in most pictures they seem big and i am not a big fan of clear turn signals.....but after seeing them on some RC's i really like them. Very clean and well built. i don't think you'll find anything better.

Another option is to buy a universal fit set. They sell some nice ones on Motovationusa.com

Thanks, I'll check into that. I've condidered a block-off plate and custom blinkers like oem but smaller. Anything that increases visibility is a good thing where I live. But I think the flush mounts look better.

I don't remeber who made them but I remember reading about a set that were flush mount dual color LED's. White as marker lights and flashed amber for the turn signal. With the white marker lights they said helped with lighting up the road to the left and right of the bike at night.
Any one know what I'm taking about?

My flush mounts are from a Holden VT Commodore (believe it or not.) they slip straight in with no cutting to the fairing at all.

The only thing is you will need to shorten the bulb socket a little, otherwise its good to go.

Um good question, cant really remember, i think it was after a few drinks and a BBQ one night at a mates house, he is a holden mechanic and he said to try em. As the hole size seemed similar.

And the rest as they say is history.

Who ever said alcohol doesnt lead to good things is lying....
