I just wondered if the front running lamps could be used as turn signals.I have the wings up top.

I decided to go with two amber led strips approx 6-8" long each.Mount em up under the ram ducts at the interface of the bottom of the duct edge and the top of the airfoil intersection.There's a nice narrow v shape that they should fit in really nicely and concealed a bit.The foil(s) should reflect some of the light outward,while the rest shines out ahead.Run the wiring back behind the outermost point where that foil meets the side fairing(inside edge).Then on up to the plug.We;ll see.I assume the 'programming' is already in the strip.Just needing juice.

I've been hoping somebody would make a wing with a narrow mirror along the trailing edge and a strip of led's along the leading edge.

Come on all you genius fabricators.

My wings are nylon covered by CF...dip I believe.They look excellent.IF I had the tools,I could fabricate a cutout on the leading edge and add leds.Not goin there though.

@h2madness!

The running lights as blinkers is a pretty cool idea. I didnt think of that.
You could pull them out and drill a tiny hole for a amber LED to put in the fixture. Run the same wires as the turn signals to it.

ALRIGHT!Victory!I ran the turn signal leads to the plug for the running lamps.Now I've got front turn signals...in LED WHITE!:laugh:
I wanted the signals to be white cause they match the Paint color and theme.Now just to make the connections solid....

We need to have mirrors over here, so it would be good to find some slimmer/stylish mirrors to bolt on and use your turn signal method h2madness!

I love it, nice work!

Can't use it here in Vic, Australia as they have a minimum distance between lamps of 300mm (1 foot)
VicRoads Registration Requirements
(I got booked for brake light integrated turn signals on a 2005 Z1000 years ago, it looked great but the officer didn't agree)

I did just find out from the above that front signals can be white or amber light and the rear amber only (I would have thought here that they all had to be amber).
...and any bike after June 1975 needs two flat or convex mirrors (but not a mixture)

Thanks Ay.I THINK they'll be legal.I can always add an amber light strip like I originally planned if these aren't okay.But I think they will be.Kinda wanted to do this from the beginning,but couldn't get any wings for the H2.It was really very simple to hook up.(thank God!lol)

Also interesting how the zx14/zx14r can be accepted with it's rear indicators being close as OEM here!
