ahhh my bad man o\ i forgot to tell you it needs resistors... i was told you could use the radio shack ones or get a different flasher, but those methods didnt work for me. heres a link to a set where i got the ones that work for me. theres also a wiring diagram on the page as well... also you need to order 4 of these. 1 for each lamp :)

Hey zx9rsurf, where did you get those flush mounts at? I've got a 97 ZX9R but have not been able to find ones that fit well because of the little lip around the opening on the fairing. Those look like they fit perfect.

I got those but didnt go with the LED because I didnt want no problems...glad I did, hope you get it working.

MeanGreen I got mine from ebay there was only 1 type on there for the B series 9 that said it was a perfect fit (you can get regular or LED though.)

Hey 96ZX9, any way that you could point me to the seller that you got yours from? Even though I would really like to go with led ones, I don't want to have to mess with resistors or putting in a new flasher unit, so I would like to get normal ones. Do you know id they have dual filament ones so that they will act as running lights as well? Thanx for the help.

you know I like that option as well but the resistors were not hard to install, there is 2 wires thats it, I like the idea of just plug and go but I like the LEDs better.

I did some thinking after riding today, I may sell the bike, I am a little scare of it , today I hit 145 MPH after an R6 was pulling up next to me trying to show off, I find it hard to keep myself control when Im driving the thing its so easy to go fast, any tips for new riders who ride fast bikes.

Allright, so I got my flush mounts in the mail and decided to go with leds because they last longer and are brighter. Instead of goin with resistor I decided to install a LED flashed relay since my local shop had them for cheap but now both the left and right side are flashing at the same time. What am I missing? Any ideas?

That's not wrong, so long as you want everyone to know you're a hazard on two wheels!

When I see a bike with flush mount turn signals I'm always thinking to myself, why disguise from people indicators that try to broadcast your directional intentions? In daylight, I cannot see when they're on and I'm keyed up to notice, being that I'm a motorcyclist! How are cagers suppose to figure it out? Hey, it's your life. Do what you want.

I can see what you're saying e1 but they're still pretty noticeable so I don't foresee a problem. So here is an update to what is happening. The problem was happening while I had an integrated led tail light hooked up. So I hooked up some regular bulbs flashes in the rear and put the stock flasher relay back in. Now each side flashes independently but they are just a tad slow to light up, kinda like they are fading in and out. I put the aftermarket led relay back in and now everything works fine. I will be returning the integrated tail light. I have a guy on an automotive forum that does custom led lights that I will have do a custom integrated tail light for me, but I have a feeling that once I put that in I will need to use resistor to put some load on the system to get it to work right. Crazy how complicated electrical systems can be.

I haven't signaled a turn in 2 seasons and have been good.
Its all about the approach.
I never put myself in a situation where a turn signal will control my destiny though.
Good luck, I never even connected mine.

To each their own and I totally respect the right everyone has to their own opinion but I feel that by not using Sig-also, either electric or hand, you're putting yourself in a bad situation. I don't trust other drivers when I'm in a car, let alone on a bike. You never know what other drivers are intending to do, but signals are an attempt to let others on the road what your intentions are and feel that they are required by law for a reason. I can count the number of times that I see signals being used inappropriately or not used at all. I see them turned on as they are changing lanes or after they've already begin a lane change or turn and and it drives me nuts. Their intended use is to let others on the road know your intentions, therefore I always signal, wait for it to be clear and then execute my lane change or turn. I feel that once you decide to get on the road with others you are obligated to act a certain way because your actions don't only affect you, but others as well. I know I got kinda long winded and I apologize but it is something I feel very strongly about. Respect to everyone and ride safe, so you can continue to enjoy riding.
