hi Sporsterdoc,

I lost the ebay auction for used nightster signals, with shipping they went for 80 bucks!

So I think I will powdercoat my chrome signals.

But what is it that makes the Nightster signals looks like LEDS?

Is the metal housing shaped to reflect the light differently? I can't find any pics of the insides online.

thanks

Thanks, I wondered if it was the lens or the metal housing that holds the bulb under the lens. Still can't tell from the pic. I think it is the internal metal bulb housing. In the fiche it doesn't look like that is a separate part number to purchase unfortunately.

Send a PM to Cosmo Kramer.
He has a 2007 Nightster and has all the electrical memorized!
I know that he is working a lot but it was on the Forum yesterday.

Hi,
I can't believe I am actually helping someone else!
I used all 18 gauge wires.
