Unfortunately, the switchback turn signals won't work with my 2007 VTX1800F. The factory turn signals don't have dual contacts for the bulb sockets.
If anyone wants some switchback bulbs, send me $10 and a pair is yours. I have two sets as I thought I could get them to work for me. Brand new, tested and work fine, but not for my application.
This is my picture, not from the internet.

My turn signals, aka Dumbo Ears, broke off. I may in the near future, if they aren't sold, buy them. I was thinking of redesigning a light more like a cone, lying on its side, attached to the fender. Until I perfect my body skills, I need some cheapies so I can ride.
So, if you can pencil me in, I'll get back to you in a week or so.
Cheers

Hey nate6966 - I am thinking of buying the Mustang driver/passenger seats. Are they much more comfortable than the stock ones? Thanks

Hey nate6966 - I am thinking of buying the Mustang driver/passenger seats. Are they much more comfortable than the stock ones? ThanksABSOLUTELY! While there are a few options of seats available (Corbin, Ultimate brand, local custom seat shops, etc.), I found Mustang to be a great mix of affordability and durability. I don't have to worry about rain with these seats.
When I had a stock seat, I was getting the tingly @$$ after only 45 minutes. With my Mustang seat, I'm not anxious for a break until after more than three hours. Add in the driver's backrest and I've put in an 800 mile day (15 hours) and felt like I could do more had daylight not run out.
My wife wouldn't ride with me on the factory pillion. The 1800F had a backwards slope to the factory passenger seat and she hated it. With the Mustang rear seat and a Hondaline backrest, she's good to ride (even commented that she almost fell asleep back there).
