Hi everyone,like the title says I'm new to warriors and to the forum.

In search for some good mods for my 04 beauty.
Mainly need some tips for the european market since I live in Sweden.
Going to get handlebars and get a lowering kit. Want to do some different turn/brake lights to.
Hit me with ideas!

Most European Warrior's do not have running lights inside the turn signal bulbs. Instead they have a single bulb running light built into the headlight.

So on those bikes, stock COD protection comes from the single running light bulb in the headlight and the two bulbs inside the license plate light.

I notice that bulb is visible in your picture here.

@ Arizonawarrior: so having that EU version with the additional bulb included in headlight does allow an easy switch to LED indicators, right ? No risk of COD if I got it correctly.
I am always cautious with wires .... there are electric-trick demons inside 👹

Correct!.. unless you change out the headlight of course.. on the flipside.. you do need to check that bulb is still good regularly. (only had 1 failure in 7 years)
basically its the RUNNING lights that matter for COD.. which in US bikes are in the indicators.. in EU bikes in the headlight. (and of course taillights and licence plate lights are on the same circuit)

Thommy, I will not assure that. I have no idea what mods were done in USA before transfer to EU, or what mods were done subsequently.

If an EU licensed factory did the EU mods, then who knows but maybe that wish comes true.

If not, the that bike owner can grab a meter and install two separate filament-bulbs into circuits to be tested, and let's see wassup.

Their butt is in the saddle. @Rider0115 seems okay so I'm not wanting a test and crash right!

Plus, he is Nordic. Me Brother in Spirit!
You too. German roots.
But mostly Scot and Ire lol.

you can do wrap around turn signals up front which eliminates the bulky flashers. If you do go the wrap around route be sure to place them under the lower triple tree so you can remove your forks without having to remove the flashers. You could also do some custom body modifications/additions such as custom fenders, chin spoilers. headlight cowls etc.
