I changed over to LEDs and went back to the stock turn signals from the ones the previous owner had placed on there.  Part of the documentation I got with the bike was the wiring information from when he put the aftermarket turn signals on, very helpful!

The brake LED isn't quite as bright as the regular stock bulb, but pretty close.  I also added a set of those flashers that come on with the brake.  In the video they appear to dimly pulse while the motor is running and the running lights are on, but I think this is something just picked up by the camera because I couldn't see it with my naked eye.

Also, the right turn signal now appears to flash a single half/flash before settling into a rhythm, other than that all is well.  Now when I come to a stop with the brake light on and turn signal going my amp meter doesn't bank all the way to the left, it barely moves :-)

I went a step further and bought the round LED trailer light from super bright.  I wanted round because I think it fits the look of the bike better than the red barn that was on there, and now my rear light is even brighter!

Running Light:



Brake Light:



Not a bad deal and easy to install...

That round tail light does look like it fits the bike better.
