    LED turn signals on the cheap

    As a follow-up to this post https://www.tw200forum.com/forum/gen...ml#post1007896 after having a few rides in, I thought I would give a quick update with a brief video to help.

    So after last weekends lengthy ride with my son, I ended up with a broken rear turn signal. I rode up on a berm peak waiting for my son and trying to stay out of the way. In a lapse of care, I stopped and went to put my foot down. There was no ground there. I had a 0 mph tip over but it was enough to break the already rough stock rear turn signal. I looked for some cheap replacement options and gave these flexible cheapo LED signals a try. They shipped quick from Kentucky and I mounted them today. I have to say $10 shipped for a set of four and I am pretty impressed. I added some washers for mounting but other than that slight adjustment, they fit great. FYI - what I received was slightly different as the LED pattern was not solid amber, but alternating amber and white bulbs, which in my opinion are even brighter and attention grabbing. If anyone is interested here is the link –>

    Anyhow, they are certainly brighter than stock incandescent signals and definitely brighter at night. I don't ride road all that much with the TW but these are flexible, smaller, LED and cheap. Here is a quick vid to see what they look like in action.

    One thing to note is that my phone did not properly catch the light distyribution. They are alternating amber and white LEDs and that is very evident with the human eye as opposed to this vid. You seriously cannot beat these for $10 shipped for 4!

    Yes, I just received my set of 4 for $10.00 (shipped) in the mail today. They appear to be pretty well made.

    Ha! Yes, those are the exact ones. I like that they are short, flexible and fairly bright. Well that and they are $10 shipped lol. After cracking a rear signal, I figured “why not” and just replaced all 4.

    Do you think there is enough thread on the stalk to also mount they stock TW luggage rack? You would need about 3/16" extra.

    Hi Randy,

    I don't think that you will have quite enough length to go through the rack, the subframe, and the plastic rear fender. They could probably be made to work if you wanted to enlarge the holes on the rear fender so that the nut would only be securing the rack and the subframe.

    Yeah, definitely a good deal then. I got rid of the stock TW lollypop turn-signals awhile ago. Actually a couple of tree's got rid of them for me.
    You know they are the same exact ones found on a 2018-19 XT250 and all XT225's? Yamaha is really getting they money's worth out of that supplier, Ha.

    I already have the shorty incandescent signals from Procycle on the TW but looking for some cheap LED's for another bike.
    Did you need to add a capacitor or relay for them to work or are they "wire & play" and work exactly (faster or slower) using the stock flasher?
