WATSEN DESIGN front turn signals. LOVE EM!

Hey guys. Installed these a few months back and have been not wanting to post up because I don't want anyone copying my look! lol. Im a big fan, very bright and minimalist. can be see all the way to 90 degrees off the center of the bike which is actually better than stock! Canadian company so if ur in the USA the dollar is very strong. I paid $99 through paypal (how they take their orders). Takes about 3-4 weeks to get them and you can order any color you want but matte black matches the plastic best. They even give you package tracking from Canada but expect a few extra days due to customs. Here are the details of the ones I got.

Universal ST in Matte Black.

Universal ST

Install was easy. I cut the plugs off the stock signals and used them for the new signals. They give you inline resistors to stop any quick flash issues or bmw faults. Been using for 300 miles and zero issues. They look great!!!

Hope this helps people make a decision on front signals! (I am not employed by these guys or getting any kickbacks, just really dig their design and quality)

Those look sharp, I'm afraid your look will be stolen ;-)

How is the turn signal visibility from a cars perspective?

Do you have a picture of the whole bike and not zoomed in?

From the Car's perspective it looks like most LED turn signals. It is a concentrated light coming from a very specific point. It definitely "grabs the eye." Only thing you might lose is maybe20 degrees of light viewing from the opposing side (If that makes sense) because the light is closer to the centerline of the bike.


I'll get a picture of the whole bike for you tonight or tomorrow.

That's a great low profile solution, thanks for sharing.
And the 90deg view is very effective.

Which set do you have, the "SP Style" or "ST Style"?

Manly, hectic, ample and stylish, the warbling R nineT is total harmony with its plumage.
The dual exhaust creaks every blip ... hearing delight.

Did they come with a (male?) connector that interfaces with the OEM connector?

Oops, I see from the OP the original connectors were severed and reused. Thanks!
