Never mind, googled the seller name and found the website. Trying to get an answer if they are plug and play or if the connector needs to be spliced on. Looks like they'll wire in some resistors for an extra $20 if you get it from their site, which I need since going to the motodynamics integrated tail light. Fast blink on one side but not the other drives me insane.

I have them on my bike and like them. They lay flat and give off good ligt. They are not plug and play...you will need to splice them to the factory connector. If you do not want to cut up your stock blinker harness off the mirrors, you can order the connectors at the same time...different vendor, should cost less than $10 if I remember correctly...I'll post a pic if I have any on my phone, if not I'll do it this afternoon

No pics here...have to do it later.

I am using the motiondynamics integrated tail light also and did not have any problems with it, check your connections...also, that should have come with a resistor, if it didn't you need to contact them and have them send it to you. I did not need a resistor for my block off/turn signals, they worked fine out of the box (once I did the splicing that is)

Yes you will need the dual load equalizer to ensure slow steady blinks. Also, I have a call in to NRC to also get the answer. I haven't seen the MBO's in person yet, just the fender eliminator.

If I get something soon, I'll post it. An easy remedy is to get the bullet connectors to crimp on the MBO's so they are plug and play.

OK, just received an email from NRC. They do need to be spliced in, like the others. As always the recommended method is to solder in the wires to the OEM wires.

Damnit Brian... Would have gone through you if I hadn't already ordered directly from NRC. I was being lazy though and thought I'd found something new so didn't crawl through my usual vendor bookmarks to make sure.

Exactly my plan. Ordered them as well. I suck at soldering though. I'm a friggin savant when it comes to taking things apart (destroying). Not so much putting back together (creating).

The only reason I keep my mirrors on my 999 is because they are designed so close to the bodywork, like they are part of it. Otherwise they'd be cut out of the picture.

Do you have a link to the connectors? I cut up my mirrors to run the Gregg's block-offs- would like to put connectors back on them so I can re-sell the mirrors

I purchased a set of the NRC lights, and a set of connectors, soldered them together, applied heat shink, and they came out nice. Used these for a couple of weeks with a set of Driven bar end mirrors which work better than the stock mirrors, and are high quality billet.

Turn signals blink the normal sped for the first blink or two, then they go into a faster blinking mode, which I didn't think was any issue.

Visibility is excellent, very yellow.

However, I re-installed the stock mirrors as a little bit of the paint was blemished where the stock mirrors were mounted, which were not completely covered up by the NRC flush turn signals.

PM me if interested... or get them from Citta Corsa if you want to splice in a resistor and do your own soldering.
