Turn Signal Conversion Kit

Anybody install one of these Turn Signal Conversion Kits from Electrical Connection on a KLR. Seems like they should work and I kinda like the concept and price.

My Kaw Barn - 2004 KLR, 2006 Concours (sold), 1997 Bayou 400.

So let me get this straight.

The kit converts the stock amber turn light from amber turn to a red running light but changes to flashing amber when the turn signal is activated??????


If you wern't after the LED factor it seems it would be a lot cheaper to get a two element socket from an old turn signal light and replace the single element socket in the turn signal. The only draw back would be the running light would be amber. Then just run a running light wire to the tail light circuit.

I've done a few like that over the years and never really gave it any thought to having a red running light in the rear. Or front for that matter.


And I think if a person were to look around one could find just the two element sockets by themselves.

Still, this is a pretty neat concept other than what do you do for the front turn signals. Do they have double yellows for the front too?

I'm more worried about people not seeing me approaching, than rear traffic since I have a truck style rear tail light on my 06.

Just thinking outloud!
