Default Rear Turn Signal Removal

Anyone know of any problems with simply removing the rear turn signals (leaving the front ones on). I don't want to get into an electrical issue, and am not sure if just removing them will do anything. Thanks in advance.

I believe the only trouble, and it is not really trouble, will be the blink rate will be faster. Maybe someone that knows for sure will chime in.

Arizona doesn't require turn signals. Hand signals are ok.

I replaced my rear turn signals with some cheap ($12) LED lights I bought from Cycle Gear. The blink rate became irratic, but it wasn't bad enough to worry about.....it even brought more attention to the signal by other drivers - I think. I then replaced them again with another set of cheap rear signals from the same store. Now the blink rate is back to stock. Go figure! The one I currently have on that blink like stock are small arrow heads ($15) with white lens and about 12 led bulbs inside.. can't remember the manufacturer's name though. Try some cheap ones and if you don't like the results, switch back or try another set.

Are lighted front and rearsignalsstill needed in AZ after sunset, andhand signals are legal during the day? I forget


"28-922. Lighted lamps required


At any time from sunset to sunrise and at any other time when there is not sufficient light to render clearly discernible persons and vehicles on the highway at a distance of five hundred feet ahead, a vehicle on a highway in this state shall display lighted lamps and illuminating devices as required by this article for different classes of vehicles, subject to exceptions for parked vehicles as provided in this article. "


It might have changed, but IMO lighted signals are a great idea, I keep 'em even tho I usually also hand-signal especially when leadinga group. Why not go to an integrated rear brake light with turn signals, the best of both worlds? Up front, use some wrap-around clear LED's that illuminate amber, they look cool and disappear when not in use.

Arizona Warrior,


I am pretty sure that refers to having license plate light and brake light but not required turn signal lights. I say this because MVD has info on what is required to make dirt bikes legal and there is no mention of turn signals. Horn, license plate visible at night, brake light, and rear view mirror only. But I like the idea of integrated tail light - gonna do a search on this. Thanks
