LED turn signals: Moto LED vs DMP

Recommended Posts

There are a couple of choices for me on LED turn signals and I'd like some input from those who have used them both.

I can get these blunt arrows (designated 'F' on the catalog page) from TT:

Or the Moto LED 602's from Wheeling.

Either way I'm supporting a vendor I've had good experience with, so I don't have a loyalty angle to help me decide.

I like the look of clear lenses with my smoked Edge taillight, so that's my preferred color...but I prefer the blunt arrow shape to the long shape of the 602. The blunt arrow style 601 doesn't seem to be available in clear.

So basically if I get a good report on the "blunt arrow" DMP signals, then I'll get that...otherwise I have to choose between settling on shape or color.

I agree...I was just hoping to get some word on stuff like brightness, quality, and longevity between the two.

The purpose is solely for looks, but at the same time I don't want to end up with an inferior product.

I just ordered 4 Motoled 601's from Forest. They look just like the first ones you posted (Blunt Arrows).

I've seen those and like the shape but they don't come in clear. I'm not a fan of amber and I like the contrast between the smoke tail and clear turns.

Cool, that's what i wanted to see. Thanks.

I have the Edge with the smoke 602's. I love my set up.

I like that one too, was going to be my choice until I saw one with the shorter arrows, and I just prefer it that way. I'm just doing the rear end now, but when I get around to the front end I'm trying to decide between 602's and the Zeta signal handguards.

hmm, I was thinking they would work with the stock ones up front, and that you had to have a resistor or electronic flasher relay if you swapped ALL of them to LED.

Maybe I've misinterpreted???

      Hey all, 
      I'm looking at buying a 2004 Suzuki DRZ400EK or at least I think it's an EK according to Vin lookup websites, but it does not appear to have a kickstarter. I was told the bike was owned by a motorcycle dealer and that it has a current green sticker, and a California license plate but has not been registered for the streets since 2011. I want this as a dual sport but am not clear if the fact that it already has a plate means I am good to register it or if maybe they took away the ability to register it after it was plated, California loves to do that kind of stuff. Since the bike was owned by a dealer I would think they were up on the latest regulations in California, but who knows. Can anyone add any insight as to what I should look for on the bike itself like the carburetor, model numbers etc? Or do I just try my luck at the DMV?

      Hi,
      I have a 2003 DRZ (actually a KLX400) and the head tube bearings are shot.  I ordered a new set to install but I'm wondering if anyone has any recommendations on other parts I should replace while I have the front disassembled.  I was thinking about new rubber fork protectors, but are there other things that wear out on the DRZ front ends that you can only get to when disassambled?
      I also broke off a replacement key that I got for the steering lock.  I must have been made of cheap pot-metal.  Should I just remove the whole lock mechanism?
      Any tips or tricks for getting the old bearings out and the new ones in would be welcome!
      Thanks!

      Hey Guys,
      I recently bought a 2003 DRZ400S and thought it would be a good idea to check the valves clearance etc . I timed the engine on TDC with the magneto mark aligned as per the manual but I find the cam timing slightly odd. The arrows pointing upward are on the 1st and 15th pin as they should but with the magneto timing mark aligned they are not perfectly straight. Same goes for the arrows that should be parallel to the cylinder head casing. Is this normal or should they be absolutely perfect ?
