Lets talk aftermarket turn-signals

So I got my Competition Werkes Fender Eliminator on....that was more of a biyatch to install than I was anticipating, but it's on, and looks good, so next mod will be front signals. I saw a thread on the Rizoma ones, but does anyone have a better idea?

Cost? Ease of install?

The rizomas are sick. I put mine on a few weekends ago and I get compliments about them all the time now. You will have to take the headlight off but they mount pretty easily...you will need an extra two washers though. The lights are bright, even during the day. The only crappy part is trying to get them tight because the wiring comes out the bottom of the bolt so you can't get a socket over it to tighten. I used needle nose pliers to tighten the nut and handcranked it, kinda sucked.

I just reread that last line I had to beat h_ryder to the punch

Life's too short to put ugly chics on bikes

Is there enough room to get a ratchet wrench in there and tighten it up?.Before, you finish plugging in the wires?

It's set deep inside the metal thing, so no wrenches.

I didn't think about that. I have some Targe ones that should be here any day now.

I'll post up when I get them on. I wanted these because they look a little bigger than the cat eyes but still a lot smaller than stock. I didn't want to put another resister in there so I didn't want LED's.

Now I can see that I"ll have the same install trouble because of where the wires go.

If they have a lock washer you can get the nut finger tight and then rotate the signal into place. The lock washer will hold the nut in place and they will tighten right up. I think I started with the signal 180 degrees from final clockwise ending point.

Expensive SOB, but I didn't pay retail as I bought mine used.
It came with aluminum signals all around that I think are just okay.

Here's my Comp Werks eliminator. I like it, I like the fact that it's legal with the light and all.

I like those blacked out exhaust cans. The SSS fender eliminator is a better deal I'd say.

Do I have more pictures of my bike? I have more pictures of my bike that I do of my girlfriend! Here you go!

(They're just POS Two Brothers, but at the time I got a SUPER deal on them, so I took them. And I think the powdercoating is doing a good job of protecting them, I live near the ocean and they are fine, but other stock Honda parts are already showing wear. Even if (when) I get Satos I will powdercoat them black, I am not down with the CF I am seeing on cans lately.)

To get back on track........

I think signals will be the biggest cosmetic mod I will do. Mainly because I think the stock signals just scream "old and boring". I mean, jeez, how long has Honda used that style signal? The bike deserves a more modern style. Looks like the LP's have a nice selection. The biggest decision will be to just upgrade the rear signals along with the front, or installl SSS's plate bracket and get a Clear Alternatives Intergrated tailight.....

Heads up... Be careful with your selection of signals from LP. Many of them are cheap a** plastic.

I ordered the competition werks fender kit and 4 Rizoma "Zero" LED Indicator Lights (FR005b).
Should be here any day now.
I think the Rizomas will give it an up to date look, and a nice contrast to the 919s rounded lines.
Got'em from PJs Parts.

Neat lights....

Did you get the mounting adapters, or are you just gonna mount em in the stock location?

Ok, cool.

they are 1/2 the price of the Rizoma's....... now I have a choice.

Those Rizoma's are HOT, but $33 a piece, whew. But I still might spring for em.

If you get LED's dont' forget to get a resistor for each. And when you do get the resisters be sure to put lots of tape around them because those suckers get kinda hot and may melt plastic.

We don't need no stinkin' hot resistors. Tridon EL-12 electronic flasher availible at most auto parts stores will do the job. It's that little round item with the tie wraps in the photo.
