Thats @^&$#^&@....

I would like to swap them for the American model!
Also because they are red and mine is orange....

But i don't think that its that simple!
The American models are not equipped with LED lighting.

So I think there is a difference between the connections of the the lights!


Frenchie did you changed the lights on your bike?
If so, how did you do it?

Frenchie did you changed the lights on your bike?
If so, how did you do it?

First of all, you have to change your turn signals for us domestic models.
Then change your turn signal converter module for part 68278-08.
Just go with some new sockets housing, terminals and a new holder module and you can say goodbye to your old (but expensive) Led orange rear turn signal!
