Three wire turn signals

Anyone know of any three wire turn signals that would be plug and play for the 919?

I found some really nice arrow ones with bulbs (I don't want LED) but they are like most, a two wire with incompatable connections. I could cut and solder them but I'd hate to destroy my nice OEM ones and it's also a hastle.

You can splice the bullet connections(radio shack) to the new lights and leave the bike harness as is.

I think 2-wire is for the rear(no running light) and 3- wire the front?

You could put 2 wire lights on front, you are losing your running lights though.

Lockhart Philips makes a nice flush mount light that has 3 wires. The running light is an LED and the directional light is a bulb. Best setup I've seen yet. I use it myself. Looks like this:



It's just one LED. It looks much brighter at night. It always looks pretty bright when looking at it from the front of the bike from the way the reflectors on it are setup. Was only like $18 or something.

I really like these. I guess I'll look for a Radio Shack. I thought all those places went out of business.

I'm not exactly sure about if its a 3 wire setup, but it looks that way in pictures, (not blinking, and not bright, so must be running light mode) these are on my wish !!

Those Rizoma Zero turn signals... high quality, high price, but,,... just look at em!!

they are at http://www.pjsparts.com/catalog/prod...products_id=48

oh ,, sorry can't read... you don't want led's hmm. i dont blame you as a bulb as a far more sheer radiance to it....

Radio Shack alive and well over her in SLC, UT.

I installed Watsen Design front LED turn signals. They are only 2 wire and I didn't want to loose my running lights either so I bought their "Running Light Module" which basically cuts the voltage in half to the lights until there is a signal detected from the turn signals. Then they blink at normal brightness. They were a snap to install and I did not have to alter the OEM wiring since the 919 uses pretty standard bullet connectors for the front turn/running lights. I just made my own plug 'n' play harness which included the "Running Light Modules". I can't say for sure that they will work with non-LED lights, but they are sure cool and would make any 2-wire light have running lights if they will work? I suggest emailing Watsen Design and asking. Let us know what they say.

The "Running Light Module" can be found on their universal products page HERE.

Does anyone remember what color goes with which wire on the front?

I'd hate to blow a fuse.

Visit the link on m51142's sig. I'm pretty sure his page lists the wiring, but I've been wrong before.
