Ktm 350 blacked out turn signal illegal?

Recommended Posts

I have a 2014 ktm 350. I'm buying a new tail light for it. The brake light is red, but the turn signals on side are blacked out. When they blink they are yellow. I live in California and I was wondering if it illegal to have that. If so I'll buy a different one with the turn signals integrated into the brake light. Ty for responses.

Technically, the turn signals must be 'DOT rated' to be legal....but I don't think you will have a problem.


....but I have had that type of turn signal on several bikes, have had bikes CHP inspected for DOT lighting compliance, and it did not come up, and did pass inspection.

from the rear or mounted on the sides near the rear of a vehicle
