Default running / indicator lights

hey on my 2001 750 I thinking of fitting clear indicator lenses to the stock indicators , then wiring them up to the running lighs , to make my bike more visible on the road , then just fit another set of indicators maybe to the mirrors.

anybody seen or done this before?
cheers

Put on clear indicators (had amber bulbs..) yes. Converted them to running lights, no. Interested in how that would work as well though.

Good luck!

Best thing to do is run a hot to your regular blinkers so they stay on as running lights then install some of those fancy blinking mirrors

and by run hot i mean wire their positive together, negative together run the neg to battery positive to in line fuse, to battery. (there might be a non Hood way to do it thats just how i have always ran my underglows)

Yeah, the fancy blinking mirrors look like an option. GSXR mirrors might work or go aftermarket.
