no idea BBB2, however i took a look at the watsen page and they state that the signals they make that fit the 919 will also fit the 2007-2010 cbr 600rr. hopefully that helps?

Thanks Pvster, I rolled the dice and bought a used set off eBay for $30. They were listed for an 07. Just got them and the look like like a perfect mount for the 919. I will say they are a different style than the Protons that Ferris Bueller has on his 919. His are flat and these are angled. I will wire and mount them tomorrow and take pics.

Protons installed

Proton flush mount LED front turn signals for 07 600RR. Running light and flash pictured. Can also be wired to strobe or fade when signaling. I like them

I will say they are brighter than almost any other LED turn signal out there. If you are directly in front of the bike, they get washed out by the head light, especially at close distance. As distance increases, they become clearer in view. And that is going to be the case with any smaller turn signal, other than the big ole honkin stock signals. However, if you move a fraction of an inch off center, BAM, there they are. And a direct side view, they are super bright. Not sure if you noticed in the pics, one is as running lights, and the next is a flash. They look like they are specific for the 919 mount, time will tell.

Mr Watsen shot his self in the foot with my sale. Why would I pay $160 for signals that are no different then Protons, for brightness. I'll do outside, in the sun pics for you Pvster. Then we can compare. You do the same. Washed out was the wrong descriptive. And I don't have a stock headlight BTW. But hey I got what I was looking for for only $30 and running lights that Watsens no longer offers with their "less reflective" lights

I know this is an old post but i got a set of the proton 500's and the turn signal wont work. Just kicks off when i flip the switch. How did you wire the signals and get them to work?

Got it figured out. Previous owner had a 2 prong aftermarket blinker relay haggard up. Added another wire and got a factory relay and it works great. Super bright.

Glad you got it sorted. I had a suspicion it may have been your flasher.
