Looks like cheap crap. I think someone else ordered em. Give em a whirl if you want but don't expect the lighting to be stellar or anything. Not sure what you'll get out of em.

If you get em, post up a review please!

It looks decent. I;m trying to find out quality and light intensity...well for 12 bucks quality wont be much but if it ll last for a year, I would give them a try...

Those will actually be pretty bright as they use standard bulbs.

This weekend during a trip in the Adirondack my ride partners have complain again the LED turn signal install by the previous owner. They are not bright enough with day light.

If someone know some good, pretty and bright light...

Thank you in advance.

If they are standard bulbs, then scratch my previous comment. I thought they were LEDs.

Front? Rear? Both? Running light option for front? More info please.

You could also do a search as LEDs have been covered numerous times with CUSTOMLED and Rizomas being the most common along with Protons and Watsons being mentioned.

I need both. Rizomas is the kind of flasher I look for. But they seem very expensive. Watsens seem to small. I want to be seen without returning to the OEM one...

Ok for the rear, CUSTOMLED is the way to go, hands down. If you want additional lights for turn signals or to meet inspection etc, you can use a pair of Rizomas as well.

As to the Watsens:



This is a view of a Watsens turn signal at an off angle as a running light, taped over (for the track day), in broad daylight the picture was taken from over 100 feet away. If you're concerned about them being too small. not bright enough, or not being seen, be rest assured these signals WILL be seen.

You think Rizomas are expensive? Wait until you check out CUSTOMLED or even better, the Watsens lol. When it comes to LEDS however, you truly get what you pay for. Rizomas are of good quality. Watsens and CUSTOMLED are over the top awesome. I've heard many good things abut Protons as well but haven't had any personal experience. You could do a search regarding Protons and see what comes up.

To the OP - I've seen these on bikes before. Don't get them. The clear lens gets hazy and darkens over time. Go with Rizomas or Watsens. I have a pair of Rizomas that I spliced in a diode to use as running lights and they worked great. Very visible during the daytime.
