Cool Make mine smoked please...Turn Signals

For a long time I've been hating the way the huge "orange-peel" front turn signals dominate the view of the front end of the bike.

Then out came the Clear version of the lens...not for me...I don't want to see the bulbs. They make me think of euro cars...and frankly most euro cars irriate me.

Now a smoke lens is available. PERFECT. It really keeps the lines of the (esp. a darker colored) bike intact. I got mine off Ebay. Do a search for K1200LT and you'll see offerings for both the clear and the smoke. They come with amber bulbs. I got them in two days!!!

In my pics you can see that I have an amber LED light bar in the rear section of my turn signals.

Got mine yesterday. 5 days from order to South Africa !

Quality not quite up to OEM lens. Some rough edges and the hole for the screw is a little tight. Very nice look though.

Just add some SilverStars

I have the Smoked Lens on my LT and I added the Sylvania SilverStars
to complete the look.

They are Blue when not lit but are the correct color when lit - very cool. Got mine at the local auto supply for $15.00

Smoke colored film

Hey guys - I can sell you smoke or clear colored 3M film to put over your lenses and headlights to keep them from getting pitted by road grime and/or broken/cracked.

Most kits come in pre-cut patterns.

Hi Tom,

The clear lenses look great but you have to use Chrome Amber bulbs....

The smoke lenses on your bike match very well!

You can thank me for those lenses by the way....
