Touratech rings the bell with their $$$$ version (175/pr).
Those TT LED turn signals looks suspiciously like the set I got from The2Wheels on eBay. In my case, I mounted them to my R1150GS and used a Kisan SignalMinder to slow down the flash (and add other functionality) rather than go with resistors. Bright enough to be visible, and cheap enough to replace if I bugger one up...they were about $25 shipped to my door for a set of four.

No affiliation, but I've had good luck with mine and it might save you a few bucks.

Wow, the F'ers at TT. I believe in a reasonable profit but that is absurd.

FWIW I have the 2 wheels short breakaway levers on my 800 and they are very nice.

Ordered them on the 28th & they were on my porch this afternoon ! Sweet - looks like a great new-years day project. Kudos to PJ's Parts for a quick ship, a bonus sticker, hand written note of thanks - and a Merry Christmas / Just Married card from PJ & Paige...

I'll try to post a comparison pic with OEM vs Rizoma both lit for anyone interested.

Cheers

Can't wait for more extensive testing!!!!! .
I had the dealer put a 15T on my new '13 prior to taking delivery (along with a bunch of other farkles).
Runs like its supposed to!

Yep. Very happy with it. A minor bit of juggling to get the bolts lined up (an extra set of hands is helpful to help hold it all in place long enough) but honestly nothing painful at all to install. Far easier than their VStrom version thats for certain.

Thanks, Moose. Now all I have to do is convince myself that the price is worth it.

Amen; it certainly isn't the cheapest route to go, but the quality is really top notch. I admit there was a bit of vanity as I wanted an anodised black plate ideally so it narrowed the choices to start, but since I bashed my Strom a few times and the Altrider always came up aces when I did, I went for it. Cant offer cost-vs.-security comparisons to the other options out there, but of its own merits, Im confident in its ability to do the job well.

Rizoma LED Signals

These signals are exactly what I hoped. First - hats off to PJ's Parts for superb customer service! They helped me out with my order to ensure I didn't buy unnecessary parts & pieces. Here's the install:
(sorry for the fuzzy pics - shutterfly compressed their size & jacked 'em up!)

First things first >> Tools were pretty basic, Sam Adams beer, 10mm & 12mm open end wrench, 5mm Allen (ball end preferred), 8mm nut driver.


Lights >> Notice how much shorter the Rizomas are compared to the OEM fixtures. I selected Rizoma "Action" models for the front & "Razor-11's" for the rear.


Assembly >> Very straight forward. Each signal comes with 2 resistors and wiring diagrams for various setups. Rizoma takes a stab at several OEM wattage for numerous models in an included reference chart, but the Tiger 800 xc didn't make the list. Pic below shows (left to right) Triumph adapter, resistor(s), and signal. All get connected in-line and plug direct to female factory connector. For my 10W OEM, only 1 resistor was used.


One down; 3 more to go.


Rear OEM vs. Rizoma Razor-11 LED, Rear close up.




Front OEM vs. Rizoma Action LED




Here's some vid's to illustrate difference in brightness. "Left" was Rizoma LEDs & "right" was OEM. The straight shots don't do enough justice. From 50 feet away, the difference is huge. I tried to capture this with the tail lights against a piece of cardboard. Notice how much more intense the LEDs are.
Fronts
Rear's
Rear against the cardboard

Done deal...
