Default Rear turn signal help

Riding a 2006 8ball. Currently has the low profile rear turn signals that mount along the fender's edge with the smoked lens. Due to safety concerns during the day, I want to install more visible turn signals without using the stock turn signal/lic. bracket. Any suggestions....

Thanks for any help you can give me.

My plan for the GF's highball, just ordered the plate mount, plate frame, and the little led's, now need to order the lights which seem to be on backorder. Im not a fan of the side mount plate just my opinion. I know I know shame on me for ordering all this chinese crap. But it's some of the only stuff that fits my fancy. Now to just find some black mounts for the front forks. I know cycleops has them just not sure how to order them in black.

I am curious how this combo worked out for you and if you could post some pics. I have a side mount and the same led signals and wanted to change them. I was thinking about the plate bracket/holder you bought and the x arc led signals.

Just buy the clear lens version.

I have the clear with amber lights, bright as hell, even in the brightest sun.

You don't seem to know what you have, so here's some help. They are MBW LED turn signals, and they're available at nearly every website that sells Victory custom accessories.

Here is one link, most sell at the same price. http://www.victoryonly.com/ACCESSORI..._led_vegas.htm

Yeah your right, I am new to Victory and was being lazy. I knew that I had seen the name of them but didn't know it by heart. I bought my bike used and the light came with the bike. I can't see spending $275 on a turn signal that I may not like. I really like the x arcs but not sure where I would mount them without adding that tag bracket.

Crappy cell pic, but I like the way it turned out they are bright and she will be seen.

As an FYI I have custom powder coated many of our fork clamps in gloss, satin, and matte black for many guys as finding black ones for ourt bikes is next to impossible. Since our clamps are only $40 or so a set it's really no big deal adding the cost of the PC.

I saw the clamps, they are really nice. I would definitely want them in black. I have the capability to powder coat them myself. My issue is finding turn signals that will fit these clamps that I can also powder coat black or that would be black and direct bolt on.

No worries there, we've got the lights for you too and you can PC the housings too. Clear lenses with yellow or red Superbright LEDs.
Killer bright and look good too.
