Default Turn Signal Upgrade

So I saw Yellowbee's thread on new lights and it got me moving. BTW....great work Yellowbee

Thanks to Lagalaxy8 for sending over the turn signals. I have modified one and will do the other as well.

I added 600 lumens of white light to the turn signal. I will have about 200 lumens of yellow LED's to be my riding and turn signal lights....so far so good.

If I need to, I will toggle the white light off while my turn signals are on. if I use a relay that is powered by the turn signal line, no problem.

I will also probably need to make my own mount so I can adjust it to where I want, but all in all, I think this will work.

What say ye?



Here it is turned on, great light from it....

Man... I get no love around here

Looks great. I've been thinking about modifying my extra set and using the mount setup I already installed ever since churchkey noted that they have reliability issues.

This forum... wow... everyone really has great ideas, with interesting solutions, then someone shares it, and another person refines it and brings it to another level...and shares it again...

great community.

I would like to see a video of these to see the driving (600 lumen) light turn off while the blinker is on.

Thanks Yellowbee & Scawein!

Scawein - I love a good work bench shot with all the goodies in the background!













ALRIGHT!! ....alright... Of course we have love & thanks for you too LD!!

You may have hit upon a golden idea here. Seems like the many. would do something similar from stock. Have all the lights on and when you hit the turn signal the bright would turn off and go to flashing yellow. Maybe they can get wind of your mod and incorporate it down the line. Call them Scawein lights! Who knows?

Nice responses all...thank you


Indeed the forum offers great help and ideas. MY knife holder shift rod became what it is because of you guys.
Interesting Shift Rod

The 'headlight' I am using is from this flashlight:
ProTac® Series - ProTac® HL | Streamlight

It runs on 6v so I will use this
3A Adjustable step down switching voltage regulator
It will run from the bikes 12v. The CREE LED in the 'headlight' needs 1.5amps to operate.

Thanks again everyone and I will do a write-up when done. I am working on the schematic now for the LED's so I can get a circuit board made to fit inside the bucket....which will look like this:


I am having fun and you guys are helping, thanks....this forum indeed does rock

Hey Scawein,

That's a $50 - $100 flashlight your cannibalizing...

could you make this mod work with these components? They have them board mounted already. I used this site to replace (upgrade) the LED's in my kitchen stove Hood.


$14 per light (CREE and Lens)??
