those smoked lenses look sweet
Ya I like them. I just got done with a 500 mile weekend and they worked without issue. From a front view they tend to blend in with the handguards. Looks great.

I hate following vehicles with smoked lenses.
They really do dim the light output. Safe or cool? I'll take safe.
With that said, I installed the clear LEDs from Amazon here in March:

with resistors here:

Had to modify the mounting a little.
Wrapped the resistors with exhaust wrap as to not melt the plastic.
So far, so good.

I’ve found a solution for those wanting the EU style LED turn signals on their 2016-17 US Africa Twins.

https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https://www.ebay.com/ulk/itm/323213903096

This option is plug and play but they will blink faster. It doesn’t bother me but if it bothers you I’m sure you could add an in-line resistor. They work as running lights too.
Flash rate. Hi there, are you able to upload a quick video of these in operation?

I will try to remember to get a video tonight.

I was thinking about trying something like these: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07GBV4B7L/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
They give the benefit of white DRLs at the front & extra brake lights at the rear as well as flowing indicators.
My bike is a '17 DCT with LED indicators as standard, I wouldn't need resistors presumably.
Those would be cool but they won’t directly bolt on due to the mounting style and wire routing. It could probably work but it would take some modification.

I have these installed but have tried the resistors ony in the back and no go. Did you instlall risitors front and back with success? What about the continous running lights in front. The resistors are always Hot? Thank you!
