'05 side case reflector upgrade to turn signals

I've read somewhere that the later models went to powered indicators where the orange reflectors are fitted in the side cases. Does anyone know if this is a simple plug in retro-fit by purchasing parts ?

I think you're talking about my Saddlebag Reflector kit (the factory never did put lights in the reflectors)--it turns the saddlebag reflector into a running light and turn signal. Unfortunately, I discontinued that kit--it was a ton of work for me. If you're looking to light up the sides and back of your bike, take a look at the trunk mounted LED taillight/turn signal kit.I admit, it's not as slick as the reflector kit, but it gives the back of your bike some badly needed illumination (sorry for the shameless plug).
