One of my first posts was about crap wiring, it was also the reason I decided to clean and take a closer look at the bike I just bought because if the PO did crap wiring I wanted to find all of it.
I am just about ready to put the trunk back on so while looking at the light bar I had fixed wiring on (got rid of the scotch locks,(wire taps), hate those cheesy things) I put bulbs in to test again and noticed that the bayonet bulbs they use for the blinker have cheap sockets so, I changed them to L.E.D. I used four on each side for the blinker.
this is what I started with
I cut the socket off
then I took a piece of sheet and broke it to the shape I wanted, drilled holes in it and silver brazed it to the remaining part of the light base
Got it wired up and it works pretty good now, man I hate cheap made crap....
