Re: motodynamics/ FE install on my 11' Raven

nice bike! are the protons fairly visible from the front even in daylight? I feel like I may get stopped for my motodynamics rear signals let alone if i get flushmounts up front, that is why I am hesitant lol

Thanks, yeah the protons are VERY visible from the front. I did a lot of research before I bought them. The other thing I like is that they are a running light (stay on once the bike is on) as well, just like the stock ones, so you get a bit of constant visibility as well. You can select different modes of flashing when you install them as well. I think they are brighter, or at least more noticable than the stock ones, and they look so much better. They are more expensive than a set from ebay or soemthing, but you get what you pay for and these are a high quality turn signal. If you do a search throughout the forums you'll see a lot of discussion about them.

They are very easy to install (unlike the tail light.....lol). It took me about 2 beer to do the whole thing and that was taking my time (got them for Christmas and istalled them a couple days later). There is a great "how-to" in the forums here. The worst part is pulling off the plastics.

Your bike is looking sweet BTW. I think the tail light and the turn signals are the biggest changes to these bikes for looks you can do. The protons are great looking and work very well, providing high visibility. Good luck.

@ honda4life05, i felt that ebay FE looks the best too, also like the $ how is it holding up since u installed it? im likely gonna get that one as well soon. oh and the motodynamics looks awesome too. U still recommend that integrated taillight?

@ pipelinz, sounds like the protons are the best flushmounts so far. i like what i see and read that running lights work and its a direct plug and play with no need for extra resistors. I read that the greggs is a great flushmount as well. they offer same functions without need for extra resistors, but not sure about brightness.
