This mod can be used to do what I did, or even change the bulb base to something else that you can easily find. I'm a big fan of Custom Dynamics stuff, but there was nothing plug and play for the Bolt or the SCR. Luckily, I had these custom dynamics lights in my VStar, so I checked to see if they could work..I saw that they could with slight modifications so I ventured in to make the change.


First off...here is what the factory turn signal bulbs look like. I searched the internet like crazy trying to find replacements, but failed so I decided to make the change I wanted happen.




Each turn signal housing has 2 areas that are bolted. The first two pictures can be accessed easily.


The ones behind the headlight are a little bit harder. My picture won't upload...so they are behind and up from the headlight. To make it easier you can always remove a headlight bot and turn the headlight to give you more room, or just take it off while you do this.



This won't be reused for this install, but if you do something else you may want to keep it. This does show some codes on it for bulbs, but I couldn't find the 3 lug ones that we have. just 2 lug offset.

Slide this tab and remove...won't be reused for this install.



Then pull out the socket as far as you can...you can just get a pair of scissors in and cut the wires.



then you can just pull the wires out.



NOTE: There is a rubber piece inside that you are going to need to remove if you want to get the wires back in. I didn't reuse mine. you can stick your finger in the socket hole and just push it out the back side that the wires go through then fish it out with an allen wrench.
This is where I lost a couple pics...BUT here is how the wiring works.
Right Side: Black = Negative, Blue = Constant, Green = Flasher
Left Side: Black = Negative, Blue = Constant, Brown = Flasher


All I did was lengthen my wires send them back through the signal housing and then add the butt connectors. At this point you can put the signal housings back on the bike.

Here are the lights I used. I cut the connector off and used corresponding connectors for my housings, and then connect.



Here's where you need to do the first slight mod....there is a plastic flatish piece that needs to come off and a plastic pin that needs to be cut off for the light to sit right. I just used cutting pliers...they came right off. The other 4 pins on the corners will stay. They help keep the light in place.



Slight mod #2 - you will need to shave the lenses down so everything will close right when you put it all back together. I just used a regular sharpee to mark it off, and it ended up being the right place to shave off to. I used a dremel.



now you can put your lights completely back together in this order. YAM13 first, then the round rubber seal, then the lens.
These line up with your screw holes.

These line up with the 4 pins you left in the housing.



Then the rubber seal. it's not nice and likes to flop around . Just keep an eye on it to make sure it's not coming out when your tightening the lens down.

Here is the resistor I use. I know..not high tech, but I've had good luck with them. you just need to figure out a mounting point for them and hook to your ground and signal wires of the turn signals. I opted to use T-Taps on mine



and voila ...you're done.
It has white rings for the running, and amber filled circle for the turns. Here is the video of them running.
