I found this install video and wanted to share, I might be doing it soon. I'm not sure if I want these of the Halos that will be out soon.


haha, So, funny story (but you may have had to be there), my buddies I'm riding with yesterday says to me when we pulled over for something to eat ; "man, you have got to change those rear blinkers, they were bouncing around so bad it was making them dizzy and fixated on them (which could be dangerous if they stared too long). They were like; get rid of that whole **** thing it's awful and looks cheap.


I had already ordered the Yoki fender eliminator but not yet received it. They continued to give me a hard time about it for the hour we were at the restaurant (stuff like bobbing their heads up and down, side-to-side, etc.. LOL) Ahh, it was funny :)


so yeah, I'd do that...and the somewhat stiffer 'bobbers' in the front. For more safety and noticeability however, you should look in the vertical ones. the flush mounts are really only visible at night.

With the Vagabond tidy tail you leave out the flexy parts. The blinkers still look like crap, but they don't do the "bobble head" thing anymore.

I should have my integrated tail light installed sometime this week. A buddy of mine already has it installed and it looks very clean, completely deleting the factory rear signals altogether.

Watch this video starting at :44. The Halo 1's can be seen from the front.

Great write-up and install video! Our Halo 1 signals will be released later on this year. We began R&D for this bike earlier in the year and now that our R3 has been delivered and torn apart we can finalize some designs and hopefully have some more products released soon.

Thanks for posting the video; I just ordered the clear front flush signals and the rear both with the connectors and relay. Total with shipping was $78.00 from TST. When I was riding the other day, I was distracted by the front signals bobling all over and knew I had to replace the factory signals soon.

I am boxing up your order as I type this! I can't wait to see some before and after pictures and your impression on this product.

Yeah, I have TST Industries front clear flushmount turn signals & rear turn signal pods. They absolutely rock. I also used a TST 2 Pin LED Flasher Relay Gen 2 which corrected the flash rate going to LEDs from incandescent. Also, the 3-to-3 Yamaha Signal Plug Converters made install so easy-no soldering and easy attachment of OEM wiring to the new signals. The turn signals are so much cleaner, brighter, and no worries about changing light bulbs. Probably one of the best and cheapest mods out there.

For a 2015 blue R3, does the clear or smoked look more natural? I wish they had a photo of each on the bike while unlit.

I have tried both and its hard to say. The white blends better with the silver that shows around the decal. The smoked does not stand out as much. The smoked matches the grey on the decal good.
