LED Turn Signals???

Does anyone know of any flush mounted turn signals for the KLR. I have senn DXKLR's tail light Mod and really like it. Especially putting the shorter stalked rears on the front, but would love to find some flush mounts for the back and front that are legal and still look good.

I'm not sure what you may mean by flush or where you want to mount them, but FMVSS 108 specifies that:

"...minimum horizontal separation distance (centerline of lamps) of 16 inches. Minimum edge to edge separation distance between lamp and headlamp is 4 inches..."

Lockhart Flush Mounts. Or you can also use cab marker lights from a 1 ton or 3/4 ton truck. I lot of guys with V Stroms use the Lockharts.

The front lights are usually the ones that take all the abuse and is the reason for flush mounting. I think I would try and leave the original style on the rear, even using the mod I used for greater visual appearance to cagers and those behind you. A couple of the guys in here, switched out the guts of their turn signals with items from NAPA, and installed double fillament bulbs so they would have running lights as well as turn signals for better visability.

Previous ride was a 2007 KLR Black/Silver, I miss it..
Looking to get back into KLR's sometime soon.
