Led bulbs

What LED bulbs do you guys run for the turn signals and brake light? I want more visibility but Im also flat broke so buying new kuryakyn LED turn signals is a no go financially. Looking into saving for a daymaker headlight but if someone has a good LED headlight bulb recommendation in the stock set up for the meantime that would be awesome as well. I live in the country with all sorts of critters big and small with curvy roads too. Need a brighter headlight especially for the deer around here.

I have an LED taillight that blinks 3x and is very bright even in daylight. Got from Super Bright LED's. It's plug and play.

I'm pretty sure whatever you find at these sites can be found cheaper on Amazon or E Bay.

Don't forget that no matter what LEDs you install, the stock turn signal flasher won't handle them well and you'll need a new one that supports LEDs.
Good news, they can be had for a few dollars (on fleaBay etc).

Yeah, the company sent me the wrong unit, so with the stock flasher I have Hyper-Flash.
