Arrow MOd Question

ok another mod question for the MH community..

I want to get the most possible lighting on the bike as far as turn signals and such... not talking L.E.D.s on the body of the bike for looks...as far as safety goes...
-i have a R6 ; i have the flush mounted turn signals... but i;ve been told that they are hard to see since they're so small.
- i really like how the gixxers have the turn signals intergrated onto the mirrors... was wondering if it is possible to set-up a pair on the R6>? AND
and if anyone has used/installed these LED MIRROR BLOCK OF SIGNALS?

i know many are gonna say that i should've got a gixxer, but i got wat i could afford. so - trying to make the most out of it..

Well, you could easily wire for turn signals; even w/ splice boxe connectors and never need to solder(which I would never recommend cause I like the permanence of solder.)

only matter of mounting the mirror. See how close the mounts are... if you can slot and drill, problem solved. Find someone to swap some mirrors even for a second. Use tools in ur kit and check.

Buy ebay or aftermarket mirros w/ integratied signals... would be an interesting mod

I agree... don't get rid of your mirrors. They are needed to be legal and if you get mirrors with integrated signals, you'll be more visable.

You can get some similar to the GSXR (like shown above) or custom make your own by installing some LEDs into your existing mirrors. Check the how-to's on www.r6messagenet.com.

Here's the kicker on ebay... do your proper search....

Then when you get your ideas.... start mispelling stuff...

my friend got a new leather riding jacket(400 at CG) for 100 cause they guy titled it as streetmoto coat... His loss was my friend's gain...

Ebay is your friend... Manipulate it
