Grip lights

Hi

Has anyone used these turn signal lights for their grips:

https://www.amazon.com/LED-Handlebar-Bar-Marker-Lights/dp/B0046JQN52[/url]

These look like a good saftey feature and should be visible from behind too...

I have these handlebar grips and was wondering if the should be glued and bolted on or just bolted on?

Thanks
Scott

Someone on the last group ride had the bar-end led markers and they were cool! I didnt catch what brand he had or who he got them from, but they were nice and bright and seemed to be nice quality. I use Bar Ender helmet holders on my scooters and will never give them up, but the bar end LEDs would be tempting.

These are one of the ones that revzilla has :
https://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/...ed-turn-signal and amazon has others too.

Have you used aftermarket handlebars on your scoot and how did you install them ?

If you are talking about a bare bar conversion, they can be a bit of a pain in the butt. First, you need to find a stem thats tall enough to clear the panels. Then, choose bars wisely as the wrong height or width can require a change of brake cable and brake hose. Finally, dash board options. Vapor and Koso make nice ones. If you reuse the original controls that saves a bit of time and trouble, just have to drill set holes for the controls so they stay put. If you scoot already has bare bars then the manufacturer did most of the hard work for you. To run the bar end LED's, you should be able to use your stock bars. Just get creative with wiring and drill out any bar end weights that might be in you OEM bars, as not all bars have them.

Instructions say bolt on, but tempted to use glue too

For the price just experiment! If they say bolt-on then I guess they just bolt-on. I personally have never used bolt-on grips. It says 22.2 motorcycle grips, but the throttle side is a bit larger. Pretty sure they would work without being glued on. I use bmx grips, and stretch the throttle side over the throttle tube. Have a soft spot for Da Kind Ganja drips. Soft, comfy and unique. Just order the bolt-on grips and see how they work out. I have spent far more on stuff that did work as advertised and much more on stuff that didn't. I have a set of bars from a parts scoot in the garage and they have bolt-on grips but I didnt install them and have not had a reason to remove them. They have always stayed put for the prior owner. Cant reach him to ask if he also glued them, he is in China at the moment.

I may add some grip lights without connecting to the signals. I think they would make me more visible when riding in parking lots.

The guy that I met on the club ride had his grip lights wired for constant running/then flash for turn signals. I wish I had more time to talk to him. He came from New York for the ride and had crazy money and time into his Honda Ruckus. Beautiful scooter with super tight attention to detail.
