Hi all,

Friday afternoon, free time and nothing (more) important to do. After 3 hours of “hard” work that’s the result:

1) Before (the original):

2) The “hard” work:

Used acrylic varnish (fire red color). Don’t ask me why the orange turns to red only painting the inside of the turn signal… all I know is that it works! At any time of the day the turn lights still as bright as the original color. Does anybody want to try it? I'm not sure if I like them... :?

What's the DOT standard for motorcycle turn signal color?

Not sure about the standart but here in FL if you want your rear turn signals to running lights as well they have to be red.

What kinda/type of paint is that you used. I need to do that too!
I recently installed one of those converters ( the ones used to hook up a trailer to a vehicle with separate amber turn signals) on my other bike and the results are great, so I decided to do it to the Shadow too! Thanks!
