LED turn signals

Cheap LED lights are just that, cheap.

Pretty much every single LED turn signal/lighting accessory I've seen fails- sooner rather than later, and you can't just swap out an LED like you can a bulb. YMMV but between me at a dealership and all my friends there are quite a few dead ones laying around in boxes if not thrown out. Want any?

Plus LEDs are bright & sharp at night- not so much during daylight- especially when you're dealing with poor-quality reflector & lens materials/design or a low-lumen LED. There's a reason why most countries test lighting & reflective surfaces of OEM parts...

OTOH I have several friends that use the $17 KTM signals on all their bikes of every type, both for the LOW LOW price and the fact that they can usually be put back together after they pop off.

Glad I found this thread. Recently knocked my rear signal off with my boot while getting off the bike at a gas station. I could tell it was not broken, but could not figure out how to get it back on. Nothing in the manual that I could find. Did a google search and this thread came up. Now I know how to put it back!

Thanks!

Don

Smacked my left one off for the first time yesterday (luckily the lens was OK); looking at it, I'm thinking, 'hmmm... this looks like it was meant to pop off... but it won't pop back on??'- and didn't even see that little screw on the back side. Figured this had to have happened to others long before me, and voila- Google's (and inmate Hondo's) my friend! Ingenious design, nicely done KTM. Thanks for posting Hondo, just fixed mine in the parking lot here at work.
