HELP! Will these Flashers work?

Just wondering if these: Universal Short Stalk Turn Signal

Will work on the front of my 919 and if I'll need any special mounting/hardware or if they'll just bolt right on. I hate the look of the stock fronts and am looking to replace them.

They're already ordered, I just realized after ordering that they may only work on the rear.

Cheers

I know they'll work on the rear but I'm not sure if they will bolt on to the front? I have a solution for the ugly rear fender but I find that the fronts destroy the sleek look of the bike.

they will work on the front but if they are 2 wire you will lose the running light but the signal will work. If they are 3 wire you will have the running light and signal. There is no additional hardware needed.

There was a set of those on the front of my 919 when I bought it. I have since ejected them in favor of signals integrated into my mirrors; but yes they work and yes unless you mod their wiring you will lose the running light function.

I don't think the running lights are a big deal but some really like them. I think they are more for visibility than anything else. It's up to you to decide.

I know for us in Qc it won't pass inspection w/o them, but the police won't give you a hard time for not having them.

I did not think of that. In do know Virginia it will pass inspection with or without the running lights.

In Texas, it's 'you don't have to have them, but if they're on the bike they have to work' as a general working rule for inspections.

I happen to like the running lights myself, especially when they're moved out to the corners - makes the front light profile visually 'larger' and I've observed cagers giving my bikes (that are so equipped) a bit wider berth.



However, other people don't necessarily agree; I did pick up my bike from the PO with that type of turn signal (the ones you ordered) installed and connected without front running lights and they worked just fine, as I said earlier.
