I think it's something to do with U.S. regulations. I believe motorcycle front turn signals here must be amber. You can do that with an amber lens cover or an amber bulb behind a clear lens cover. Yamaha chose to do the amber lens cover and must have used the ugly ones from some other existing model.Why did the U.S. R3's get fugly signals as stock and the rest of the world gets modern updated ones like the picture below?
Anyone know where I can get those replaced online?
I put these on my R3 (get the harness adapters and the relay, too and the whole thing will be Plug-and-Play). They're available in clear and smoked.
