    Wireless turn signals?


    Got my dual sport (1973 Triumph TR5T) wired up, all lights, charging, ignition, etc. working, except for turn signals. To keep it simple, I was thinking of something like this bicycle item, battery-powered wireless turn signals:

    ... but would like front and rear with more separation.

    Has anyone done this? Suggestions welcome. Thanks in advance.

    Thanks, guys. I'll keep searching for more options. Maybe some chopper builders have done this, will check jockey journal forum.

    I'm good with electrical and I realize most people are not as comfortable with it as I am, but a turn signal circuit is fairly simple. I assume there is no existing wiring for turn signals?

    What's the difference between a bolt and a screw?
    First you screw, then you bolt.

    Thanks. Nothing on the bike now for turn signals. The project came with a set of universal indicators, flasher, mounts, etc., ... I was just looking for a way to avoid running more wires -- fewer crimps, connectors, less wiring, less chance of problems. I've wired everything else, checked charge rate, spark, lights, horn, got bike running. I could probably get a sticker without signals d.t. the age of the bike. My other vintage Triumphs have no turn signals, and I get kinda nervous using hand signals since I think lots of people don't know what they are. (Story time: a few years back when MotoMarket ran Thursday nights, I left with another rider who later asked me, what were you doing with your hands?)

    If I just wanted some visibility, I guess I could wear one of these vests

    Gotcha. I do sometimes hand signal AND use my turn signal--especially when stopping to make a left turn.

    Those are both very interesting options I never knew existed that solve your problem the way you want it to be solved. I think I would go with the vest one. It seems easier to decipher for other drivers and leaves the bike clean of turn signals.

    I've often wondered whether this sort of solution would be viable for making a quick-conversion kit for people who want to street/track a supersport. The headlight would presumably still want power off the main harness, and maybe the market just isn't there.
