This morning’s project on the Road Glide was to replace the stock turn signals with Custom Dynamics Bullet Ringz. The stock turn signals are incandescent bulbs with colored lenses, red for the rear and yellow for the front. They’re passable as far as brightness is concerned, and I’m really not terribly concerned about the power draw from them. The Bullet Ringz are LED based, much brighter than the stock bulbs, and give me better running lights, as well as slightly decreasing the load on the charging system.
For the front, I chose to go with the amber/white modules, which have an outer ring of bright white running lights and an inner cluster of bright yellow for the turn signal. For the rear, I went with red/red modules, meaning that both the outer right and inner cluster are red. All of the modules were ordered in chrome, with the smoked lens option.
Installation was extremely easy. Simply take off the old lenses, remove the bulbs, plug the module in to the light bulb socket, coil up the wires, and snap the new module in place. There is no need to replace the lenses, as the module is the replacement. And since the bike has CAN-BUS electronics, there’s no need for a load equalizer. All I had to do was turn on the hazards for a couple minutes to let everything sync up. The end result looks good and performs far better than the original bulbs.
