rear turn signal installation

ok so i just put new signal on my bike, but got a question about the wiring, there are 2 wires for each light, one is black and whit the other is solid light blue, the old lights had the same color wires but were not connected to match each wire, i did however match my new signal wires to each of the same wires , the strip to stripe and the solid to solid, but either way the signals still work, so does it matter?

If its a regular balanced filiment then it can be wired either way and just needs to see the voltage difference of power/ground.

dot... Department of Transportation approved.

I will admit I have straight LED lights in the rear; spaced about four inches apart(too short) and are hard to see... which is why I am use to using hand signals when in a group.

Brightness is also a consideration; I could technically be fined for modifying my front ones as well, and the fact that they aren't bright enough incomparison to the headlights.

Gimme a sec, pics coming...

the law has a precise distance the turn signals are suppose to be apart from eachother. the cops normally dont mess with me but some questioned it... including the license plate...

the hole on the left side of the upper fairing has two leds that shine down on the plate and illuminate it at night... pretty trick lol...



as for A/M lights... all the LED one's I've seen other then integrated Yami versions have been light in color refraction. I have some mini bulbs on turn signals I mounted on the 600 that are bright...
