This is how I've done it
I still haven't finished as I snapped one of the hollowed bolts.
but this is the pics of my progress.





This is my thread if you want to keep up to date on when I finish it. More in-depth on how I did it

I still have to order the flush mounts
These are original gsxr mirrors so I've had to mod them to make them fit and look "factory" with out hacking the body up

visibility, is not merely luminosity of a light source flashing away,
but includes activation of brain areas responsible for perception of
meanings, indicated by relative positioning of indicator lights..

when about to turn left at an intersection with cars waiting to come out
i will signal my intent with indicators but also with extended left hand..
this is visible and obvious at longer distances resulting in better
driver understanding of,, my intent,, to turn left into his road..
[a road courtesy as well as safety factor]
if, the rider held his/her hand at their hip, in that situation
what communication would be sent to those waiting drivers,
compared to the extended, left arm and land..

this is not rocket science..
obviously, the hand held at the hip would be relatively
meaningless as a signal of intent to turn left to other
drivers, compared to the extended left arm and hand..
this is a reality i have direct experience of over years of
using hand signals in certain situations, and noting of
driver responses to the extended arm compared to
just the indicators.. [not just a pet theory etc]

you or anyone is at total liberty to remove indicators
or change them to whatever you think best for you..
but there are certain realities underlying the existence
of extended indicators.. if for some reason honda
engineers decided to fit inexpensive flush mounted
indicators car style to fairing panels, and there were
not yet aftermarket extended indicators available
i would make my own and install them on
my general purpose road motorcycle..

Again, everybody is entitled to an opinion, but coming into a thread about flush mount signals and preaching about how dangerous they are is kind of silly IMHO. If you don't like flush mounts, so be it, but don't rain on others parades by not adding anything useful about their implementation on the bike... Just move on the the next thread.

It reminds me of Slickdeals when folks post about a deal to Taco Bell. The same posters come into all the fast food threads and proclaim how bad fast food is for you and post the nutrient profiles of the deal in question. If I am looking for a deal on Taco Bell, I probably don't care what the nutrient profiles are...

I installed Pig Spotter mirrors with built-in led turn signal and Hotbodies smoked flush mounts on my gf bike.

Thank you!!

Got the lights and flush indicator mounts installed successfully!
Looks pretty badass and actually very visible. I think having the turn signals in the mirror is actually safer then where they are stock. The higher position makes it easier to see for cagers. The side flush mounts.. More of a "why not" might as well fill the holes with something useful.

That is exactly what I wanted to do Crispy.

Thank you for the pic, if it's not too much to ask, can you upload a picture from the front?

2012 Red CBR250R - Two Brothers slip on, PIMM-2, Adjustable levers... More to come

2002 NSR150SP - lots to do.

Not a problem! - I think the flush lights and mirrors with integrated turn signal gives the bikes profile a much more aggressive look.

The standard mirrors look a bit "bug like" to me.

The LEDs in the mirrors are run lights so when the bike is on they are always on similar to the front headlight - however my phones camera wasn't able to take a pic of them. LEDs are sometimes hard to capture because they flicker at a high rate not visible to our eyes, but noticeable when trying to take a pic. So just imagine the mirror LEDs being on with an amber glow to them.
