Post Re: This bike is not yet named.
Yeah, I have a Facebook, and in it's hayday, I used it quite a bit, but the more "connected" I was, the more disconnected I wanted to be. Hundreds of "Friends" who I didn't know or care about, and then suddenly, I started hearing opinions about things I really didn't care to hear opinions for like relationships and life decisions... Then Facebook blew up even more, sold out more, became more commercial and Now I barely check it unless i'm trying to contact a business. I figure, the people I care enough to talk to, I do so with directly. The more Info I put out on facebook, the more information out there they can use to datamine.

I keep mine DOWN really tight. Probably little more than family and friends. Certainly less that 100, probably less that 50. I don't really know ... but not many.

New look. Much closer to what I want, but I may get tired of stripes..

I cannot really tell from the shot ... is that 3-5 mm ??
We do that so that on extreme transitions of acceleration/deceleration the belt doesn't have a chance to top over that edge.

I'd like to see a closer shot of what you are calling DUT blinkers.
Location -and- what they really look like -and- source (where did you get these).

Post Re: This bike is not yet named.
Kijima DUT blinkers from battlescooter @ www.battlescootershopping.com also available through Japan.webike but you'll pay the same and wait longer.

~$50 incl. Shipping.

Mounted where OEM reflectors normally go. (previous owner ripped the reflectors off so I had holes to fill)

Drill the hole out slightly larger (7/8ths paddle bit I believe) plus two holes to mount screws. Available in clear lens /amber bulb and amber lens / amber bulb, Incandescent, and work with stock flasher (with stock rear turn signals. May not pull enough draw once I swap to LED's out back.)

Image

Close up via Battlescooter, Amber Lenses:
Image

Kind of expensive for a set of flush mount blinkers, but they look pretty OEM and are far brighter than some of the cheapo 20$ LED blinkers. Safety + Style. I like little tidbits like these to appear OEM and fly under the radar. Lots of Ruckus guys use them as they're small, functional, and classy looking. Another option I was considering was the blinkers from Rucksters, rPRO SIGNATURE 8-SHOOTER SIGNALS RAW, but they're basically cheap Trailer lights with a fancy CNC'ed Bezel, available in many colors, however Black or Raw are both sold out.
Available here: (Eventually) www.rucksters.com

Image

These however, are LED, will probably require a different flasher, and I can not vouch for brightness. I've seen Kijima DUT's "in the wild" and that was what convinced me they were bright enough to serve as blinkers, and not just rigged trailer lights.

Post Re: This bike is not yet named.
I think webike sells the kajimas in clear and amber lens for either $17 for a set or $30
cant remember exact price
all I know its super cheap

we do group buys here once you hit $500 I think its free shipping after that
so you can get some good deals then

Post Re: This bike is not yet named.
yeah I thought it used to be $300
plus if you wait to long the prices change alot, depending on the value of the dollar I guess
seems to keep going higher, which costs us more for the items

but if you plan ahead and buy a few dozen popular parts you could resell them marked up
and maybe in the end make profit

Post Re: This bike is not yet named.
Getting back to business here, I tore the bike apart to finish wrapping the side panels. Did one last night, tonight project: reuse stock front blinkers in the back and get rid of the old sticky-outey ones. Looks ok for a free mod!
