2014 Yamaha R1 Crossplane Install Flush Mount Turn Signals Hotbodies LED Blinker Installation
This is how I installed the Hotbodies LED flush mount blinkers on a 2014 Yamaha R1 Crossplane. The white discs go directly on the turn signal which will space them out to sit flush with the front portion of the fairing. So, on your bike, 3 spacers go on the signal and 1 on the inner fairing to hold it down. 2009 to 2014 install flush turn signals on a 2014 Crossplane Yamaha R1.

Yamaha YZF-R1 Crash in Chennai India 2 killed! important safety message
We hate it when riders die... it's like watching one of us, leave us forever. I feel greatly saddened by this... 0:15 Totaled Toyota Etios (R1 Crashed into Etios) 0:30 R1 crash site 1:08 The fallen biker Yamaha YZF-R1 Crash in Chennai India 2 killed! important safety message I feel strangely connected to bikers. Even if we don't know each other. Even if we are from different areas or even different countries. There remains a connection. A love of two wheels that we share. The images that I am going to show you today are disturbing. They have put me in a depressed state. But I can't .... run away from this. This is an issue, that we need to tackle head on. Superbikes are fast and everyone knows that. But they are also bought by the affluent. They can spend around a million rupees on a motorcycle. Surely they can spare a 100,000 on riding gears. Just 10% of the bike's cost? The Yamaha R1 for example costs Rs. 17,00,000 on road! This is just unacceptable to ride without much protection. Even if you are riding a Duke 200 at 10 to 15% of your motorcycles cost can give you full protection. And same goes to our brothers riding Honda CBR or Yamaha R15. Please consider this once, if you can spend 150,000 Rs on a motorcycle, can't you spend Rs. 15,000 on riding gear? The victim here has his head completely protected. But a helmet is not enough. His body sustained severe injuries, killing him. If you are watching vow to wear complete riding gear, set the correct example for others to follow. Telling other people to wear gear has minimum impact when you, yourself, don't follow it. I have seen a fully geared rider back flip on a KTM Duke 200 and land face first but he was completely unhurt and got up to win the orange Day race. Riding gear can make a great difference! Every time you step out on a bike it could be your last ride. One day we will all ride together in the twisties of heaven but till then, make sure that we stay here for as long as possible... Rest in peace unkown biker. Let me know in the comments section below if you have ever lost a close one in an accident... Thanks for watching and hopefully I will see you very very soon...

Audi R8 style lights on a Yamaha R1
Audi R8 style lights on a Yamaha R1. LED strip was installed and wired to operate as a turn signal as well as the running lights. I got the led strips from eBay; they are just 24 LED flexible strips. (Do a search there are hundreds) Next you will need 2 5 pin Bosch style relays. (Dont get the 4 pins they don't have an output for normally closed (87a) which is what you need for them to be running lights.) Next dismantle your bike down to just the headlights. Preheat the oven to 250 degrees Fahrenheit. Place the head light on a cooking sheet and then in the oven for 7 minutes. Remove headlight and pry the housing apart, its pretty easy with the help of a flathead screwdriver. Next glue in your LED strips; I used high temp silicone RTV on mine you can experiment if you like. Once installed lightly press the housing back together and put it back in the oven for 7 minutes when its done you can press it firmly together and the clips will re-snap down. Now just reassemble your bike and wire them up! you can wire it like I did as alternating with the flasher or if you dont want it to flash you can ditch the relays and wire it to any keyed 12 volt source on your bike. I happen to have used the stock 12v running light power for the stock signals (a blue wire as I recall.) Do this at your own risk I accept no responsibility if you confuse Fahrenheit for Celsius and melt your damn headlights :) Have fun kids!
