I love my 8-Ball for the blacked out look. I think we would all agree on that. What I don't like are the amber turn signal covers. I am having a hard time finding replacements that are not amber.

Any one changed their's out with pics of the final product? Which ones did you go with?

I can find chrome turn signals, just not black.

Blacked out Lens

I bought the black ones with the LED conversion from Power Motorcycle Parts in Ohio. Lenses are $40 a pair.
Yesterday I took my stock ambers, and shot them with 3 coats of VHT "NightShades" paint. Nice and glossy, and look better than the colored ones I bought. I didn't shoot them back in December as it was too cold, and I didn't want to risk screwing up my stock lenses.
Since it has warmed up, I thought I'd give it a try and see what they'd look like. The first lens I shot, I scuffed with a scotch brite, and the fine scratches showed through the tint. The other three I just wiped down with windex and they came out great.
I am waiting for a new lens to shoot since the scuffed one looks bad. Local dealer wants $33 for a lens and housing, they don't sell just the lens. Ordered lens only from Arizona Victory $10.
Below are shots of the colored ones I bought, and the stock units I tinted.

Hey Pok,

Check out Noemtz Designz. I picked up a pair of smoke lenses and amber bubls. The price was unbeatable and they look slick. Just pop them in in the place of the stock amber lenses.

Just check it out.

Peace.

One quick reccommendation:

I got my 8 ball with the LED rear turn signal mounted on the lip of the fender, and I much prefer the look.

Unfort, the previous owner got the amber lights with smoked lens so I am constantly getting told by people I ride with that they cannot see my blinker during the day.

It will be minimally detracting and MUCH MUCH safer to either go with the red lens or clear lens if you get this kit.

My $0.02

I agree that smoked looks cool, but when riding at high noon, and that little old lady behind you plows through you when you're stopping... you'll wish your lights were more visible.
