My LED turn signals arrived, so I just installed them on my 2002 Yamaha Virago 250. I looked through every single LED turn signal on ebay – I liked six of them – and ended up buying the cheapest one.
I really like them – they are plenty bright and stick out 4.4 inches from the mounting point – this is not enough to get in the way and it is 1.25 inches more than the aftermarket turn signals that were on the bike – so it is a little safer now. They were out of black so I had to get carbon – I never had anything carbon before – I thought it would not fit with how the rest of the bike looks, but it seems fine (I am not real fussy, though). I drilled new mounting holes to install them 1.75 inches higher and 1.75 inches more toward the front of the bike. I did this so the turn
signals would serve to support my carry bag – I really did not want to buy a luggage rack. And mounting them 1.75 inches higher makes the bike a little safer – so that is good.
The Eclipse bag is an example of keeping things light for more performance – it weighs 2.4 lbs or 1.1 kg and holds 1,500 cubic inches of gear. The saddlebags that came with the bike weighed 7.2 lbs or 3.3 kg and held 1,034 cubic inches. -Les S.
