RC8R Aftermarket Turnsignals

Anyone have success with after market turn signals for the RC8R? I want to eliminate the front mirrors/signals in favor of bar end mirrors and low profile LED signals; mounted either on the front or side fairings. I'd like to do this myself vs. paying for a couple of hours of labor but I'm not having any luck finding a good aftermarket signal and the local KTM mechanic said I need to make sure it's wired right as it may need a resistor. Any success stories you can share about a good product and wiring would be appreciated.

LED rear turn and stop lights on my 2014 RC8R

Im sure there are a lot of styles for the rear turns. You are looking for LED"s. I like compact, bright, and very practical, and this set up worked great! But had to get pro advise from Gateway electronics for the voltage problem. And NO , its not just solved with a resister. got a fender eliminator bracket off eBay for plate, the license frame is for Harley (can find these on eBay). The voltage to your rear turns is **6volts**. the pic is how well they work from rear. the last pic is the 5V relay (one for each side) and just used the original plug that goes to the hem turns and cut the wires. I left the fronts alone for now.
