I was thinking about the DRC low pros. They seem pretty bright.


I may ride a little fast and someday it may catch up and bite me in the ass but maybe not if I give it just a little more gas.

Rockabillyslapmatt did a low buck LED trailer clearance light on his KLX250. Sweet set up under $30 for 4. Here's the first post he did. Go forward from there to find the rest. He mounted them in his hand guards on the front and later finished it by mounting them in the rear fender. I bought a set, but haven't installed them yet.

They are near impossible to destroy the way they mount. He did a video of them flashing too. Plenty bright.

I've been using DRC 586 LED rear low profile turn signals. They are available in orange, or smoked versions. Either is plenty bright. Yet to break one...

HDB here, metal casing so they will take some abuse.

I use some stick-on low profile ones like those shown above. I first bought some from Cycle Gear, but they didn't last very long.

I now use ones I got from sicass racing. They have lasted several years.

But I would never depend on these little guys to signal someone behind me in a critical situation. I use hand signals to augment the turn signals. They are mainly there so I look legal.

These have served me well, about $5.00 each. Plenty bright & have yet to break one after numerous drops.
