Hi Sky,


I'm getting my bike in about 3 weeks I think so I have time to do a little more looking.
Now, when you say the globes are marked 21 watts....what are the globes, the original
incandescent signal lights? The flasher relay is marked 21 Watts. Can you tell me the approximate diameter of the oval end of the signal at the largest point and the smallest
dimension. Are the tail lights the same oval configuration. Oxford Jupiters from the Oxford heated grips people? Thanks for all your help Steve.


EZ/Paul.

Hi Paul
I've attached two pics for you, the manual globe specs, and a pic of the factory front globe against a measuring tape. Yep, I was referring to the original globes.

The fronts are hybrids (eg two filiments), they are 5w for the DRL, and 21w for the blinker.
The rears are just 21w.

Yes - same Oxford as the heated grips. See a product sheet below.
Their products come with a 21w resistor, so the only other thing you may need is spacers for aesthetics.

If you want to see any of the OEM components, my dealer has a great reference site:

I put led blinkers from yamaha Easy installation. The only difference is that now are always off, nothing to worry me a lot.

Nice set, thay look great.
Are they factory Yamaha? If so, what model...
There are two stage led/drl blinkers on eBay, but I pulled one apart last year and they are absolute ****.

They are the ones they use for MT07 & 09, I do not knowexactly the model. But are Yamaha original parts. Cheaper than Honda and the IMO look better.

but as I said, they stay always off

I'm liking those a lot actually.
I ended up purchasing two sets of Oxford... Very disappointed in the quality. And the stalks are still quite small.

And the website was wrong in stating that "ALL OXFORD Eyeshot LED turn signal indicators are supplied as standard with 2 x Ceramic Resistors suitable for 21W bulbs" in reality mine were packaged with 10w resistors. Boo

Just to stick my oar in;
The resistors will consume the same (higher) amount of power as the incandescent globes (bulbs, lamps)
The LEDs with a correct relay will use a fraction of the power and in the case of, for instance, using hazzard lights for extended periods, will extend the amount of time the battery will last!

This just adds to my DCT "my bike won't start and I'm in the middle of nowhere" paranoia!

Hi Jason,
So the flasher relay is the way to go to take advantage of the LED's low draw. Is it one flasher relay for the two front signal lights or front and back?
Thanks Jason
Paul.

Well, as we don't have our bikes I have no idea!

I'm also a bit reticent to buy a workshop manual because they might have moved on a model year by the time we get them!
