Default Turn Signal Bulbs (Not LEDs)

Hey all - so in my quest to find clear lenses for my High Ball I was able to find out that Ducati Monster Lenses will work, now I'm stuck. The stock bulbs, I can only find in clear or in amber. The issues with that is clearly the clear bulbs will be illegal and the ambers wont be aesthetically pleasing.

They make the "Stealth Bulbs" - chrome covered bulbs that light up amber when turned on, but I cant find any in 5008/R10W. I was able to find them in 1156 though. They both have the same base (BA15S) but I'm worried about the wattage difference and heat being an issue.




The question is; has anyone used an 1156 for their turn signals?

They both have the same base (BA15S) but I'm worried about the wattage difference and heat being an issue.


Thanks in advance

I just use what came on the bike..combined with hand signals when I feel the need to.
Sometimes I just use hand signals.
On older bikes pre ADR (Australian Design Rules) I'll generally remove blinkers and rely on hand signals ,where I can get away with it..
though they're definitely more visible at night.

Thanks for the responses guys. Sadly, I'll get a lot of crap from the fuzz here in MA taking my turn signals off.

Ducati Monster turn signal assemblies are exactly what Vics use.



I'm trying to avoid the "egg yolk" effect you get when you have clear lenses with amber colored bulbs (like the image above) by replacing them with something like this;




I cant find that style bulb in the 5008 platform and am thinking of trying 1156 (if there is enough room to put the lens back on)

I know the 1156 would not work on the 07 and older bikes. The base although it looked the same...it was slightly different and would not work. As for newer steel frame bikes...have not tried them. I used to stock clear lenses and both the amber and chrome bulbs for the Victory bikes when there were real popular several years back. I will dig out my old bins and check to see what I have left. I know I may be out of lenses, but pretty sure I still have plenty of both bulbs.
Will post up here as soon as I confirm.

How do you take them apart to get inside?
I'm under the impression they're a sealed unit where if the bulb blows the whole assembly has to be replaced...
