Default Better Rear Turn Signals

Added some LED's to make the rear turn signals more visible. I have the clear alternatives rear light and the turn signals are not that good.

Here is the link for the LED, I bought one and cut it in half ($12, not bad)

WFLS-x-BK series Weatherproof High Power LED Flexible Light Strip - Black Circuit | Top Emitting | Flexible LED Light Strips | LED Light Strips & Bars | Super Bright LEDs

What y'all think?

I like what you did.

I was thinking about doing something like that on my hard saddle bags...
I have a different integrated taillight. The signals work well, but I still like to be sure I'm seen at night...

I was looking at the sets from Autozone...

God Bless,

And at 12 bucks, a rather low cost mod. The LED strip is weatherproof and adhesive backed. I spliced them into the turn signal circuit at the connector under the seat....very easy and straight forward.
