Anyone trying to mount them in the FAKE ram air inlets on the front. I was looking into making my own. Have to wait til I get my bike first :banghead: though to see what it entails. Just curious if anyone else has tryed or is going to try this?

I am sure you can make it work, I would be a little concerned about the arc of visability (you could see it from the front, but not from the sides). I know there was a euro version of the 954 had the turn signals in the headlight assembly it was pretty cool looking.

You could do that Euro version on the 929 also. It even had the template built in. The problem with these kind of mounts (Headlight, Ram-Air inlet) is the visibility. Great from the front, but noone on the sides of you knows what you are doing. Safety first. :wink:

I also thought of that a while back. It's supposed to be cold until middle of next week, so I'm hoping to tinker with the bike (remove reflectors, play w/ licence plate, check out the Ram Air vents, etc.). LED's would give the most "bling" value, but there's a more limited choice of pre-made LED light fixtures, most have a fairly limited viewing angle. Also, you'd need a regulator to make the blinkers go at a normal rate. I suppose the "easier" way would be to make a bracket that hangs in the center with two ears to mount some generic mini/LP type blinkers.

For comparison, the stock lights are aimed forward, whereas the Gregg's blinkers don't appear to be visible at all from the front; so I'd think the Ram Air blinkers, even with LEDs, would be noticeably more visible than the Greegg's. Personally, I am more concerned with making sure the cars & riders behind me see a turn signal, than anyone in front of me.
