    I found some that look like the factory units (shape) but they are significantly smaller.  Also have 3 LEDs instead of just one.  With the adjustable flasher relay, adapter plates, and tax I paid $52 USD.  I could have got them for a lot less $$$ but this price had them to me in one day. Very bright and easy to install. Thanks for the help and links.  :763:

    Can you share a link for those, they look great.

    Thanks

    I never even look at my blinkers. I mean, I couldnít describe them to anybody. I know what my ZRX blinkers look like but Iíve owned that bike over twenty years.
    Are they really that bad? Iíll have a look the next time Iím at the bike.

    Somethings bother different people for different reasons.  Some change the levers, exhaust, etc.  some don't.  I hated the flopping cheap looking stock turn signals.  With all of the other lighting installed on the bike from factory being LED, having the big, dumb flopping lollipops look like crap to me.

    Links below.  It takes two sets of the adapters for front and rear.  You can get the adapters much cheaper from TST (Kit 3 $6.99).  I just wanted the items overnight with free shipping.

    I hear you. 👍 They are a little floppy. Another main area that needs improvement are the stock mirrors.
    But for things that bother different peopleÖ Iím probably the ONE motorcycle guy on the planet that doesnít like using a tail tidy. I kept the factory overhanging proboscis despite multiple protestations from my riding buddies. I never see it while Iím riding anyways.

    The floppy turn signals are an easy fix. Sometimes it might just be the clamp that needs adjustment. But, if the turn signals are floppy because the rubber boot has torn, then you can see one of addressing it on YouTube (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FtbzQJP6uE8&t=530s). The "fix" involves using a 2" #6 pan head machine screw (readily available at your local hardware store). It beats shelling out $55 for a brand new one that will likely result in another tear in 2-3 years as these rubber boots don't seem very sturdy.
