Flush mount LED turn signals

So I recieved a refund in my ebay account because my shock absorber never came. So now i have 100 bucks just waiting to be spent, haha. So I'm considering getting some nice bright LED turn signals. Has anybody else done this mod to their ex500? Some pics of them installed on your bike would be great. The ones i've come accross on ebay don't seem like they'll fit my bike(ex500) very well? I'm thinking a carbon fiber pod with bright blue LEDs.

Show me some inspiration here people...

i had thought of doing that to my ex500 but then i just decided to change my whimpy bike and get a gixer 600

jokes aside i think the carbon fiber pod with bright blue LEDs. would look cool what color is your bike? mine was blue and so i really would have done that

My bike is black, the previous owner snapped off the stock front turn signals when he went down. He replaced them with these cheesy 6 dollar teardrop looking signals. The bulb in there is really whimpy and i can barely see the signal even when i'm looking for it. I've already tried to make my own LED signal with not so great results. I used 6 superbright white leds, there's no space to put anymore in this crappy pod.

I just bought some a set after posting the last message. haha Save myself the hassel. http://cgi.ebay.ca/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?...MEWN%3AIT&rd=1

I'm gonna need some resistors to stop them from flashing too fast though.
