Turn signals #1
Been tinkering quite a bit in the garage lately, hmmm, don’t know why. My dt3 came with some cheap plastic turn signals that broke right away. Started looking at proper replacements and did not think I wanted to pay the price for something that stuck out and would probably just get broken again. I found some very small bullet shaped signals on eBay for about $10, ordered some 6 volt led bulbs and a 6 volt electronic flasher unit. Under $30 total. They’re tucked in nicely and are pretty bright. After following my buddy for a couple of miles with his left signal on I think the beeping may be a good idea also. Mike

I know! I tried uploading twice and I guess the video was too big? Will try off the phone.

I had to break out my 8 year old laptop so I could copy address from YouTube. Apparently it doesn’t show up on my iPad or phone. It can be a challenge being a dinosaur.

I like the the turn signal beeper! I'd probably need to be able to wire to ear buds, just make sure I hear :Ugh Back about 12 years ago when I bought a 76 CB550K project and it still had what I think was an original turn signal beeper. I thought It was the most obnoxious thing ever so it soon got disconnected. But now, hey not a bad idea. Older and wiser?

I’m curious - do you have the links to all these parts? I may do the same thing temporarily to my 1974 DT360A.

I’m not sure how to post links but I’ll do my best. Small signals on eBay about $8 ....2 inches long with a 1 inch shaft. I see some similar from moto-dramas. Got bulbs from Superbtightleds for a couple bucks each. Part #BA9s-W4-32-6vac. Flashers I got from Amazon for $8 for 2. Reviews weren’t very good but they send two. Working fine so far. 6v-12v motorcycle flasher by Rutu. The only other thing was I removed the flasher grommet and made a rubber washer to fit in hole, put large washers on either side so the signals could ground to frame. Hope that was helpful. I’m thinking about getting two more and mounting on headlamp ears, moving them off the handlebars. Mike
