I see Amazon has them for about $85 a pair. I wonder if they meet various state DOT regs ? Would hate to spend that time and money to rig them only to find out they wont pass inspection.

I'll let you know, I just ordered a set. We do have inspections here in The Union of Soviet Socialist New York. But I've never seen or heard of anyone checking to see actual DOT compliance on turn signals, a horn or anything like that. They just want to know they are functioning. Anything but "amber" on a turn signal won't pass inspection. That keeps the idiots that think running "red" forward lighting is cool until a car runs into them. Maybe they should just let them, and thin out the species?

I bought and changed the TW's lollypops after losing one on the bars and one on the tail during the Greenridge Run in 2018. Replaced with the tiny ones (non LED) that Procycle sells.
But the turn signals on my '91 XR250 are big and bulky and do what they are supposed to do, make you be seen (hopefully) when anticipating a turn. I had the expensive experience of replacing one of them that was broken and it was super $$$ for OEM Made In Japan. I think it was $45.00+ for one frikken lamp.

I recently bought some tiny cheap-Chinese versions for $19.00 (4 four of them) that I was going to use to replace them when I ride off-road but have not put on yet.
These Click 'n Rides's seem to have taken care of the instantaneous swapping situation in one swoop.

Vintage "Made In Japan" is no different than vintage BMW/"Made in Germany".

Today. I'd rather take the OEM signals off for safe keeping:

Looks like the Click N Ride jobbies require some "extras" to work.
And don't forget the $20 handy carry pouch!

They are pretty trick!:cool:

Our friends at Pro Cycle have added these.
https://procycle.us/bikepages/tw200.html#electrical

$79.95 per pair.
Plus:
LED Flasher $19.95 (if you don't already have one, required for LED signal lights.)
Diode Kit $12.95
Resistor Kit $21.95

What's that you say, Buck-O? You want them on *both* ends of the bike?
No problem...that's only another $79.95!

And you must have the "Roll-Up Storage Pouch"!
Only another $17.95!

I'll let you add all that up.
Sit down first...
It's still under their Free Shipping threshold.
Add another $13.00 or so to ship.

Holey Moley...good thing we're all rich, eh?

There was a $10.00 difference in price that either included or didn't include the resisters.
I'm not sure why you would not want them included in the bundle?

Unfortunately it is not coming until after this coming weeks riding, camping and other carnage at the Jersey Devil Hunt in The Pine Barrens. I'll have to be more careful.

Here's what I bought and it's link:

Let me see how good they are or if they suck before anyone else buys them. Pricey but if they work...

That seems like a lot of coin for something that conceivably can be readily lost, stolen, breakable, needs to be stored, needs not to be forgotten, etc.

If one was concerned about breakage a person could order several sets of these and be way ahead dollar wise and have many spares to replace or share with a friend. Bright, flexible, flowing light pattern gets attention, etc.

If one routes all the ground wires through a single ballast resistor only one, not 4 resistors, accomplishes the job. An under $10 variable rate digital flash unit also corrects flash rate but addition of resistor should make dash incandescent indicator bulb work fine.
