Daytime running light/Led blinkers - is there any middle ground

Recommended Posts

Been searching for a bang for buck led blinker plus dry set up. Either it’s the awesome but Expensive Yamaha OEM indicators at around 150 or it’s the cheap eBay no good stuff selling for 10 to 20 bucks.  Has anybody found any good all Choice right in the middle, like bright enough , quality enough but not super expensive. Saw couple but they don’t seem to have drl function.

These are sweet for $52

This premium turn signal features an all anodized aluminum body with SMD LEDs and a light refracting lens.

You may need to get resistors too.

@Cruizin I think I came across some rizoma stuff like these as well, don’t think they have drl option on them.  :(

I take it that 'dry' really means 'drl'.   I don't recall ever having seen what you are looking for in a conventional blinker set-up (but see my later comment below on the D-Zell items).   But don't dismiss the cheaper LEDs/ DRL set-ups available from China on E Bay as an addition to the OE blinkers - I've had several of these on various bikes over the years, as have many other members here, mostly being totally reliable and satisfactory.   Within limits, IMHO, one cannot have too many lumens!

These (lower pic) are one of many identical pairs I've had, they cost about AUD$30 the pair, installation is quick and easy, and I've never had a failure.

An alternative, if you've money to spare and are on a Gen 1 Tracer, might be the Korean-made E Bay D-Zell LEDs that are mounted into the front recess on the hand-guards (Knuckle-guards) on Gen 1 only Tracers.   

Search using www.ebay.com/itm/YAMAHA-FJ-09-MT-09-TRACER-Knuckle-guard-LED-Kit-White-2014Y-2017Y-/172844216166 or similar wording.   

I had pair of these at about AUD$130, IIRC (currently US$96), and they are extremely neat, well-placed high up and wide apart for optimum visibility, and can be had with or without the amber blinker function.   Highly recommended by me.

Day time running light :) 

@wordsmith ty, will give it a try. Yes, I always give the eBay stuff a try and never dismiss without an attempt. Lot of good results . The blinker I just installed one yesterday. Looks good but not bright enough if suns out and shiny

Take a look at X-ARC signals. I put them on and very happy with the signals even in the sun.

Yes, the X-Arc signals are not only built well but they are VERY bright.  A little pricey but well worth it.

Will look into those, looks very bright.

 

Ouch x arc price is closing in on them oem blinkers. Might as well fork it out and bite the bullet. I like the option of oem blinkers having white running light like the head lights

So, by daytime running lights, you mean that you want blinkers that are always lit up, but get brighter when they are blinking?  I changed the title of this thread so as not to confuse people that come here looking for regular LED blinkers.

The OEM Yamahas look like this:

It's not my video, but I have to OEM blinkers and they are quite good. Very visible flashing also in daylight. They are expensive, but I think they're worth it.

After dilly dallying aroundni finally bit the bullet and ordered the Yamaha oem drl blinkers. 

 

For the rear rear I ordered the custom dynamics tail light blinker combo. Very nicely made kit, straight fit , no cut split nothing. Plug and play install in 10 mins Max.
