I try to install the hotbodies led flush mount turn signal and ran into some problem. First the signal didn't sit flush and its still loose even when I use a washer. The nut is a lot smaller then OEM one. Anyone who got it on their cbr250r Please help me

I wouldnt worry too hard...the first time you make a left in front of a vehicle that never even had a clue that you were about to make a turn in front of them and your flush mount turn signal being loose wont even concern you anymore

Mine wasn't flush either, but I got another pair and I used the wedge from the extra pair. it worked fine but i should've bought proton flush kit instead.

The amount of additional risk people will incur for vanity truly baffles me. I pulled up behind a bike a few weeks ago that had microscopic LED turn signals about 2 inches apart so far under its rear fender you couldn't even see them. I chuckled and thought, "what a tool..." Probably not the reaction he was hoping for, but maybe the high school school girls think differently.

Yep, that's what I was thinking, stock signals may not look as good as the flush ones but it looks better than having a crashed bike.

Flush mounts are hard to see, and even more difficult to follow behind.

My friend had them and it was just a PITA to follow him with them on.

They're a safety hazard. It's not worth it. I think the DRLs on the stalks and the Y-shaped fairing complement each other anyways.

I'll have to post some pics when I get home from work, I got a set of those after doing a lot of reading about flush mounts. Reason I got them was my right indicator's been the focal point of impact on two occasions and is looking a little misaligned, so i went with flush because they were cheaper for two than a single OEM right indicator.

Now for those who are about to jump on the "but think of the danger" bandwagon, I also got myself a set of LED indicator mirrors as my left mirror stem is busted due to my recent highside and I had to remove it so it wouldn't be sitting there flopping about (and not being a practical mirror).

So I now have a twin set of indicators, mirrors and on the side of the front fairing. The flush mounts do look pretty epic, and the indicators look epic and provide a visible level of "hey I'm about to turn". Being LED, however, means they flash about 2x faster than stock, so I do have a relay on the way to fix those.

TL;DR: You will be very hard to see from the front with flush mounts. I have a set of mirror indicators with flush mounts to up my level of awesome. Pics soon.
