Show me your turn signals!

I'm really wanting to ditch my ugly stock pumpkin turn signals to some smaller LEDs. However, I want to be sure the new signals are nice and bright. Could some of you guys make a recommendation? Please share pics / links of the signals you are running if you can. Thanks!

Here are a few shots of mine.  I bought them from luckybike. I also bought some levers from luckybike and initially had some fitment problems.  They were VERY good about customer service and responding to emails.  I resolved the problem and the levers are great.
I bought the flashers linked below in the LED version.  They are VERY bright, and I have no complaints.

Great link Rowdy, thanks! Looks like Luckybike has a number of options. Really cool custom work too Churchxd. Thanks for sharing.

If you want to retain DRL's be careful what you buy as most are not DRL. This is what I bought without checking so my front LED's are not DRL (disappointing to me) but I paid extra money to correct that. Anyway, the LED's are plenty bright enough, IMO and you also get a sturdy, nice looking fender eliminator kit (if you don't have one and would like one) to go with it, all for $69.99. The cons: you have to pay $15 more for front LED adapters (not a biggie). For the price this is a good 2 birds, one stone deal. Update: aaaand it comes with an LED license plate light.

We talk about making them in this thread, it only cost me about $25 and 2 hours of work

Dang! I just bought a fender eliminator from motodynamic. I wish I would have bought that one instead. Although the one from motodynamic does seem pretty nice and it comes with a plug and play license plate light. I'm not concerned about losing DRL. I think the bike looks better without DRL.

DRL is a nice safety feature.  It's gives drivers a little better perspective on distance and movement.  It's easy to turn non-DRL flashers into DRL flashers with a blinker genie. That's what I did with mine, and they work great!

I found some LED 3 wire signals on ebay. I think I'm going to try them. Are there any issues with LEDs running hot when used for DRL? I was going to just reuse the wiring from the OEM signals and buy a new flasher relay. Should I be concerned about heat issues at all?

And I would definitely keep an eye on there temp, but I doubt it will be a problem.

Keep in mind some LEDs will burn out fairly quickly when used as DRLs. Its a crapshoot. There are some forum members who use LEDs as DRLs, some have them burnout quick, others have good experience with them. I have about 2500 miles on my Barracuda Futura IIs as DRLs, so far so good. Although it isn't always the case, the cheaper they are, the chances of burnout are more likely.
