Where can I find smoked LED blinkers to replace the amber ones in the mirrors?
Also if I switch to the LED blinkers will I need an equilizer for the blinkers to work right, and if so how much trouble is it to install?

Does anyone know of a different brand? I would hope there would be one where you would not have to replce them every year.
Also how much trouble is it to install the equalizer?

Seems to me that smoke lenses darkens and restricts the amount of light being transmitted. They may look good for appearance but I personally would not use them because of the reduced safety factor. Same thing for smoked headlight, taillight, etc.

My $.02

I kind of agree with the comment about smoked lenses restricting the light output, but I had heard that was not an issue with the smoked LED lights.
However there sounds like there may be an issue with how long these lights last.
The only reason I wanted the smoked lenses over the clear was I thought they would go better with the black headlights on the 12 GW.
Rocky; have you been able to tell if your light output is reduced by the smoked lenses?

1) I just ordered the smoke lens three days ago and they haven't arrived yet to compare them to my spare Amber lens.

2 ) The 18 is still in prision.

Honestly I have seen the Smoke lens in acton in the past w/chrome/amber bulbs.They were bright too.
That is why I ordered a set now because my bike is now white.
I wasn't interesed in them when the bike was Red.
