Default I like the stock turn indicators

Just wondered why so many people change their turn indicators to "flush-mounts" or Rizomas, or others. I kind of think Triumph did a pretty fantastic job on our stock units. In my mind it would be one of the last upgrades, if you could call it that. I know when I ride with my buddies (mostly gsxr 1000's, bmw s1000 rr's, etc), they have "upgraded" their signals and they basically suck--that is you can't see the indicators if they are on unless you look real hard.

I know that there are some premium vendors on this forum that sell some nice replacements, but I am I wrong to assume that most people are replacing their stock units are doing so because of damage done by low siding, or tipping over?

I guess my mods are almost always performance oriented, maybe I need to look at my bikes a bit harder?? I must confess that I don't really look at the 675 as a cosmetic goodie, its more of a tool in my mind.

Anyway, just wondering,

Mark

I agree with you as well. I think the stock ones are perfectly fine but I wouldn't mind grabbing a pair of these. All about looks! Click image for larger version

I agree. I have leds in the back because of the FE I have. I wouldnt mind some smaller front signals and if a pair of flush mounts were gifted to me I would use them but i wont drop the money on them myself.

I upgraded mine for the simple fact that it seemed odd to me to have an LED tail light with integrated blinkers on the rear with incandescent signals up front. Plus it helps differentiate my bike from stock that much more. And that's what I'm going for.

I really like the stock signals too. When I bought my bike, it had really crappy aftermarket signals because the guy before me crashed the bike and didn't go back to the OEM route. I'm actually putting my bike back to stock and getting away from the crappy cheap Cycle Gear turn signals on my bike. Yeah the aftermarket ones are smaller...but less visible too for me. I think the stock signals look great and wouldn't have changed them if I had bought a fully stock machine.

I personally hated to look of the OEM indicators, they look out of place. Watsens seem much brighter and easier to see, although thats only from the riders POV, i have no idea how they look to other motorists.

Can't argue against the Watsens... if you're patient

The stock bubble turn signals on the older years like my 06 are horrible looking, they just don't match the lines of the bike. The triumph LED signals though look amazing though!

The Watsens are THE way to go. Super bright.

I was happy with OEM.....until I installed the Watsens on the wife's bike (see below), then ordered a set for mine.
