Alternating front blinkers

Another little upgrade, plus added the new style Kuryakn trim over the fairing reflector. The reflector light is an LED.

I made the same modifications. But I modified the side marker lights recently and added LED strips to the marker lights.
I had the chrome covers over the side markers too. However, as the Side Marker Light chrome fillers aged, they cracked and broke under the bolt heads. I had to remove them and toss them. I went back to the OEM fillers.

Nice. Hoping these Kuryaken trims last awhile. Last ones were the flat chrome ones, and they were getting on with age and starting to rust.

I had those on my 1500. I also had the lighted version of that chrome piece in front of the radiator exhaust grill. I hooked that up in parallel with those side lights and connected my ring of fire in parallel so everything was on in run mode and everything blinked with directional.

While I did the trunk side relector to light conversion, I did not do the alternate flash with directionals. Just didn't like the idea of amber rear and red side alternating. I did though get the lights for the saddlebag door reflectors and replaced the rear saddlebag brake lights with the ones that also had directionals. Finally I replaced the lower rear fender reflector with the tail/brake combination. Gave me two directionals in each side (top and bottom) and SIX 1157 brake light bulbs.
