I swapped my rectangular yellow side markers for round ones because I thought they looked more appropriate on the SCR.
Was just looking at YouTube videos on the SCR and it appears Yamaha must have been considering it because a lot of the early test ride reviews show round yellow side markers. I wonder if any production bikes went out that way.

Good idea!! I looks perfectly fine with round ones. =)
Both should be DOT approved. (Check the lense for the marking).
Judging from the black rims on the bikes in the photos you shared,
those were not US-bound SCRs.
All the ones I've seen here have silver rims and got rectangular reflectors.

Ha, I didn't notice the black rims....
My reflectors came from a 75 Yamaha Enduro so they should be DOT approved.

Black rims and round reflectors in Europe (Tracer is my old mans.....)
Personally, I’ve thought about removing them completely, as they’re not a legal requirement here.

Nor here, that I'm aware of, just another thing everyone removes when their bikes are new... I took mine off too, I think they look goofy. But in my old paranoid way I have added black reflective tape, its magic stuff. You'd never notice it unless you were really looking, or it was night and your headlights were on it.

I thought they were - I know my Harley’s have always had them on the fork legs (which aren’t as easy to take off....) ?

I get mine here. https://www.streetglo.net/reflective.tape/

Didn't like the body weld under the cab of my Tacoma when I got it and put a 1" strip down the sides of it to hide it a bit in the daytime.
At night? =)
The rims got 1/4" red, though the photo has the rear wheel looking a bit orange. It actually looks just like the front in reality.
Also bought some 1/4" to do the rims on my former FZ-09.
The stripes were subtle until the light hit them at night.
