This is the info on them.....

A new twist on our classic fork mount turn signal/marker lights.

We upgraded our fork mount turn signal/marker lights with a super bright LED pod for more visibility.

We also added a 49mm fork tube version to our line for Dyna's and V-Rod's.

IMPORTANT: If being used as a turn signal a load equalizer is required.

Made from T6-6061 billet aluminum, then polished and chrome plated or black anodized.

Comes with AMBER LED pod lights.

LED pod lights are angled 25 degrees to accommodate the rake of the forks.

Available for 39mm, 41mm, and our NEW 49mm fork tubes.

Sold in pairs.


Retail $124.95 and V-Shop always has 20% off any Joker parts..

members price $89.95

yeah I didn't even notice that at first....that will take allot interest out of them IMO,, I wonder why they wouldn't re-fab them so fork removal isn't necessary...if they did I could see a ton of these being sold as the price is very fair

looking at them I can see they would have to be 2 piece and then they would not be a smooth transition all the way around.... you don't have to remove the forks - just slide them down enough....

I am wondering if any members have heard that you can use an aftermarket 12volt car LED flasher and you will not need a load equalizer? - there are many different brands of load equalizers and most any of them will work..... just trying to save some money for the members and wondering if an LED flasher will work... I don't know?

Its a 30 minute job - jack bike up , unbolt calipers , remove front wheel , slacken yoke pinch bolts , slide forks down 2 inches , fit signals over forks , slide forks back up , tighten yoke pinch bolts , refit front wheel and bolt calipers back on.

when i did my cd ones i didnt even remove the wheels ,just jacked the bike up while the pinch bolt were undone,with someone in to guide them out and back in nicely to eliminate scratching ur tubes..easy as can be

also think seeing these on a vrod above and below the lower trees ,would help wiith sales for you

Probably should remove the front fender also or risk screwing it up. 30 minutes is about right.

Custom Dynamics has load equalizers for about $65. I'm sure you can find them cheaper elsewhere.

Removing and replacing the forks is a no brainer.

The wires coming out of the units looks a little cheesy. They should have thought about that a little more. The wire is at a right angle to the clamp making it a bit hard to conceal them.
