Thanks for the pics so far. I like those. Kinda flush yet stick out some. My taillight is LED with intergral turn signals. Every littls bit helps.

Mike and I have both run them on our 950's and as you know, they survived Baja and many, many miles of trail riding and general abuse. If that doesn't tell you how tough they are, then I don't know what else to tell ya

The Sicass signals would keep popping out of the base and then eventually get ripped off, leaving the wires dangling. I've had a set on my 690 for three years and never even had to give them a second glance.

Same here .. Pop out quite easily.

However, I glued them with a mix of cyano-acrylate and primer ...

I ended up just getting a mini set of stem turns at Cycle Gear Bike Night yesterday.
I talked my bride of thirty years to go for a ride with me on Valentine's Day and they even fed us.




I'll return to the LED stuff later. I need Ginger to be ready to ride tomorrow.

On another note- It seems my Big Orange is getting jealous of all the attention I've been giving Ginger. I saw my first oil puddle under the 950 last night. It has been relegated to the shed while I use the garage/shop to work on the 690.

No oil drips after the ride. I'm thinking I have something that is being effected by the cold outside temps. Should be easy to find & fix.

What do they look like ? I've been holding off on installing my euro tail light cause i haven't been able to solve the turn signal issue without fitting something hideous.

I just got things all back together.

Not bad.
This is the LED tail light unit. Very compact. Very bright too.



These turn signals are hella bright.



The pannier racks make for a big crashbar.

Why do you cover up your license plate? You let everyone on the road in Nevada see them....why not us?

I went with Sicass after a day of trail in Maine.
Lost the plate and OEM turn signals.

Indeed. They could pass for OE.

Thanks for taking the time to share the pictures.
