mine are the same size, but you have to use either red or amber bulbs, just happens that I have a few of each or I have a few mercury coated ones as well, make me an offer for what you want. I am using LED s in my signals from Joe at Heavy cycles , they are much brighter then bulbs.

My D has different ones front and rear, something about the tabs or something like that. You have to look for the V-Rod specific ones. There was a kit up to this year that would only fit the chrome turn signals, but they did make a new one for the black one this year.

I've got that aux brake lite kit, so I had to go to the local auto parts place and get red bulbs for the back. But then I saw that CD has some cooly mirrored ones so they blend in a bit more.

they are all the same diameter, but they have a different fit on front vs. rear. The front has flanges and the rear slots. They are not interchangeable front to rear.

all harley bullet signals use the same lenses, front and rear... the only oddball is the vrsc plastic rear signals... they are a different animal.

I believe it was '05 when they started making the oddball lenses for the rear. unfortunately you will have to buy one of each kit, and you will use only half of each kit, maybe you can sell the left overs to someone else. But yes, they make smoke lenses for front and back. The difference is the mounting tabs.

There is a complete smoked kit for sale now...I just bought it. You do not need to piece a kit together.

Wait, I thought the DX came with smoked lamps?

Jim, they are p/n 2004 - 1 3/4" for 1 7/8 OD pipe. They fit right in the ends of the header pipes before the slip-on muffler. It's a super easy mod...took me about 30 minutes. I wish I could help you with that lens kit p/n, but I can't right now...sorry!
