Amber turn signal bulbs RY 10w
« on: April 03, 2019, 03:35:22 PM »
Hi people
              Ive been looking into getting spare bulbs for my 2015 TEXT for a trip to Europe, Is it a full set I need or just head light ? I was wondering if anyone has fitted led bulbs for turn signals without adding a diode in to the wiring ? can't seem to find anything for turn signals in led form only for cars!  also I have looked at my rear brake  light and it seems to have a strip of bulbs and looks impossible to get in without talking half the bike apart  :003:
While I'm going on about bulbs Iv'e seen a few posts about H4 Cyclops led's for the headlight they are so expensive! anyone fitted similar but cheeper?
Thanks for your help.

 I cannot comment on the turn signals or brake bulbs. I can comment on the cyclops headlight replacements. I went a head and bit the bullet and installed them. Why go with something that is unproven one for a few dollars more you can get the real deal. They work!!

The hard part is finding the right bulbs because they have to be compatable with Europe's metric electricity.  The Tiger is still in imperial electricity.

No need to worry. If it’s a UK spec bike that you’re riding, then you’re carrying your own imperial electric. However, remember that,  if Brexit has actually happened by the time you go, then you’ll need imperial bulbs since metric ones will no longer fit.   :008:

In some countries it is a legal requirement to carry spare bulbs - as a gesture to this I usually carry a spare bulb or two but not replacement LED units.
I've never heard of anyone being in trouble for not having spare bulbs, although after Brexit local police may feel entitled to check Brits are complying with every little detail of local laws!
