New Turn Signals

I am thinking about getting some flush mounted turns signals for my 05 KLR. Will any turn signals do? or is there a specific type I should keep an eye out for? If anyone has any suggestions, lemme know.

Depending upon where you live, #1 some cops know they are illegal and will cite you for it. #2 Not DOT approved and Some places in America the cops aren't that critical and you won't get hassled. Some aren't that visible in the daytime or night time. Choose wisely. My 2 cents

94 KLR,tank guards,sw motech centerstand,Doo done, african switch,mirror dampners, powerpegz, twisted throttle fuses, aluminum skidplate, Bigcee shark disc and jug holder and subframe upgrade, progrip grips,maier handguards/brushguards, avon distanzias,fmf q4 exhaust, headlight guard, handlebar risers, billet rear brake reservoir bracket and guard, dual star shifter,garmin 2820 gps, tmod,disc cover, pcv mod,corbin flat

I'd be interested in what you do for the front. I'm pleased with my re-located rears.

I don't want something that isn't legal or visible to other drivers...I was looking at some replacement turn signals for some street bikes that I would like to put on my KLR, but wasn't sure if I wired them up would they function correctly.

If they're incandescent and don't use different wiring and are about the same watt/amp draw, there shouldn't be any trouble. I've read of LED replacements not drawing enough to activate the flasher but don't have first hand knowledge.

Legal/visible has to be your call. But visible is good.
