Default Flush Mount Turn Signals

Hey Guys looking for some ideas/experiences with front flush mounts. Any suggestions on brands to buy or stay away from?

Thanks

I had hotbodies flush mounts on my '02 before I sold it. They were very good IMO

I have Hotbodies LED flush mounts Motorcycle LED Turn Signals, Hotbodies Racing . They fit into the factory detent in the fairings, like they've always been there. I've had great service from them w/ no problems whatsoever. You can wire them as signal-only or wire them as signal & running light. There's a great tutorial here on the forum on how to do this... https://cbrforum.com/forum/how-mecha...-inputs-84998/ . There are more expensive options but the HB's are quality at a reasonable price.

Good luck w/ your shopping.

I love my hotbodies. They've been thru hell (rain and a wreck) and still work great. They're reasonably priced and work just as well as the day I bought them.

I have had the generic ebay ones for 5 years now with zero issues.

Question.......are these as visible to other traffic as the stock ones? I really like the look but not at expense of visibility to oncoming traffic? any feedback?

Short answer - no - not as visible from the front as a front-facing signal. Its the tradeoff for flushmounts.

HB flushies cant be seen from straight ahead...may cause problems with cops depending on where ur located and how strict they r on that kind of thing..

So there's no misunderstanding... They can be seen from the front but as the question was asked, they just aren't as "visible" as front-facing signals.
