I am sick of the large amber turn signals and to totally clean up the front end I am thinking about using LED turn signal mirrors. Anyone install any? I dont want something big and gawdy as well as I want something black, as my 8ball is all blacked out.

Any thoughts and pictures?

I'm not sure what you are looking for or how much you want to spend but I'm pretty happy with a set I got for about $120 or so online that shipped from overseas. They came in both silver and black versions, brand was Magazi. I needed new mirrors anyways and wasn't satisfied the fork turn signals were enough since they are so close to my bright headlight.

Here's a thread I posted with some pics where you can see the silver version on my hammer: http://www.victoryforums.com/showthread.php?t=14504

I also remember looking at some nicer ones made by Rivco but they were closer to $250.

You'll probably need something to slow down the flash as with most bulb to LED conversions.

I saw these on ebay for $119. Wasnt sure if they were too big and clunky looking. Do you like them?

They are not too clunky for me, but perspective changes from one to another. I'll snap a few more pics when I return this wknd to try and give you more perspective. They were very easy to install, just 2wires I ran tight alongside the other cables towards the headlight assembly. They put out good light.

I have the fork LED turn signals also. They look clean and the wires tap into the headlight bucket. I have a set of mirrors with LED turn signals in them that l'll sell you for cheap if you want to go that route.

They were simple to install. The ones I got had a zip tie and double sided tape. It came with an alcohol pad to clean the surface. Then you have to heat up the strip to make it bend without breaking the LED connections. They recommended a heat gun. I didn't have one so I used a space heater. Peel, stick, zip, then you just need to wire it up. Of course I tested each strip prior to installing to make sure all the LEDs were working. I don't have a picture, but just imagine your bike without the front turn signals. The signals are pretty stealth. You'd never know they were there until you turn them on. Really adds to that bobber look of simplicity and removing unneeded parts.

hey cdickgo,

where are yours from. I was looking at the mbw and you have to take the triple tree apart.
Thanks
these were the ones i was looking at. it sounds to me he has the led strip like you can find on victoryonly. I found a place that sells 5 LED strips cheap, I might wind up making my own signals and mounting them somewhere on the lower triple tree.

Turkeeslapper: That's the way I did mine on a Harley Night Train softail I had. People used to tell me it was kinda hard to see that was so I eventually turned the outward.

I like the wrap around fork mounted ones pictured above. Really cleans thing up. Probably need an inline equalizer though if there isn't already one in the system.
