    Ok, so I've scoured every parts list, and I've done my due-diligence to find an answer and have failed......I want to slim down the turn signals, but it seems any aftermarket options I look at would have too small of a stud compared to the OEM turn signal stud. Does anybody have a list of turn signal options that will work or an idea of how to make aftermarket signals fit? I was particularly looking at the Kuraykyn Attos or anything of similar size. Thanks in advance for any help

    Too small in what way?
    If you're saying diameter, it doesn't really matter. A short piece of rubber hose or tubing slid over the stud will fix that and help prevent vibrations too.

    Gen 1? I have a lot of options but most like the aluminum ones we sell (multiple lens and housing color/finish options)

    The aluminum ones are aesthetically the best match, with the aluminum headlight carrier, the aluminum handlebar cap, the aluminum brake splitter/cover, etc. I've seen some lamps about 1/4" dia. which don't give anyone much to see, I would get something at-least visible, and bright. They are running/turn indicators, after-all.

    20190612_191433.jpg 20190419_183743.jpg 20190609_201726.jpg Radiantz and Custom Dynamics are just a few that come to mind, a search worded"led turn signals for motorcycles" will show endless suppliers. I used Radiantz LED turn/run/blink with a multi flash module, very bright in direct sun light, the bike's lit up like a christmas tree front and back. Though the back attachment is a very custom design they as well as the fronts are the same lights used for the stock locations on earlier versions of my bike. Maybe 16 bucks front and back,
    free shipping too.

    some of the lesser known models of japanese bikes have neat and small indicators if you want something that is a quality build, personally I like the alloy indicators fitted as standard to the HONDA VRX400,
    I've seen so many aftermarket indicators either cheap or expensive corrode, pit up or fall apart, so I always look for reasonable standard items where possible

    I agree, for what I got in "bright and cool" the stalks are a rubber to flared steel snug fit.
    The lights won't take a direct hit, bump or tap LOL...But I think they fit the look I want.
    I shot two more pics for the question of mounting. I'd say it take's a little creativity for some
    custom application of the aftermarket lights etc. IMG_20190812_174005474.jpg IMG_20190812_174022389.jpg

    I bought the corbin fender eliminater. When installed with stock turn signals it cracked. They honored the warranty. I found flush mount smoked signals and love them. This is the only image I have atm.
