front signals

does anyone have pics of either the Rizoma Zero LED front signals on there bike or the Watson Design LED's on there bike? also, i know watson has a wire kit to allow there signals to still operate as running lights; will Rizoma work w/ the same kit?

thanks

ok.. you don't have to ask twice.. well.. ya do, but then no need to ask a third time, ok?















That enough pics of the Watsen signals? Some one else will have to satisfy your quest for the Rizoma's.

Note: I installed the thing that makes two wire lights work as running lights and signals. It works fantastic. Makes the running lights about half bright, as you can see in a couple of these pics. When they flash they are twice as bright.. looks great. One of the features I really like about these signals is the LEDs make a little arrow shape pointing in the direction your headed. Also, the quality is top notch. Not Chinese cheapy garbage, that's for sure! Of course, they are priced accordingly.

Enjoy!

Yup. Love 'em! Don't see what all the fuss is about over the stock mirrors... I just don't. They don't vibrate, crack, wobble or rust. They give great visibility and clarity of what is behind me, even if I have to move my head a little to see around the arm/shoulders. Personally.. I like that the view is blocked unless I move a little. Makes less annoying light hit my eyes at night.

The only replacement mirrors I like are the round ones Rizoma makes.. the 'Class' mirror I think.. and at $100 each.. well.. it will wait.

Those LED's look cool. Note they won't be as bright in all angles as stock incandescent 31W (23+8) bulbs. Don't blindly trust any driver to notice a signal (even stock).

Watsen

These are "universal" Watsen Design LED's I bought last winter. Front (and rear) signals are Lockhart Phillips aluminum incandescent dual filament.
I tied the LED lights to the signal input so they flash and act as side markers. I designed and machined the aluminum bracket attaching them to the radiator.
I had the paint shop @ work paint both the bracket and L.P. signals flat black. I specified the LED housing flat black as well, but it turned out more of a semi-flat.
Moto's right though, top quality all the way with the Watsen Design.

As a side note, if you look closely at the "watsen1.jpg" photo, you'll see a dent in the radiator cover favoring the right side of the bike. Also, there is a scrape along the fender pointing out the trajectory of the impact perfectly. I don't recall hearing the object hit while riding, but a few inches to the right and I sure would have felt it on my shin! The Art radiator grille did its job that day!

Excellent location for side signals! Your custom brackets are amazing!
All MFG should add side turn signals to assist negotiating tight traffic.

I moved the shark fins in front of the turn signals. Seriously this scooter looks better than my CBR600 when I returned from Alaska!
