Since I have so much time on my hands from this collar bone injury I decided to do the eyebrow mod in a day or two.

I have read a couple of posts about where to drill and all that stuff but when I got my bike it had no front signals at all. What do the harnesses look like that went to the signals? Color shape wire color ect? I think all I need is some 194 harnesses and the bulbs. Do I need any thing else to get these to blink right. The back signals work fine.

Oh yeah I just changed the blinker fluid too.

Any links, pics, suggestions would be helpful.

Re: Eyebrow mod questions (mrgrn)

Okay, go to Radio Shack and purchase:

#272-360 Mini Screw Lamp Base

#272-1134 Screw Base Lamps - 14v 200ma

#64-3025 Vinyl Grommets (31)

Some small (20ga) auto hookup wire

1- Drill a small hole (approx 1/8") as a starter in the socket where the lamps go. It looks like a tiny hex bolt, but its just molded plastic. You need to go in at a slight angle because of the bars. This is okay, because the lamp and base assy. is kinda long, and it puts it right where it needs to be in the reflector.

2- Now drill a 7/16" hole. Try not to get the shavings in the lamp, I don't know how to get them out without major disassembly.

3- Test fit one of the larger grommets on one of the lamp bases and use one that is snug (usually the 1/2" size).

4- Now remove the grommet from the lamp an put the grommet in the 7/16" hole and use the back of the drill bit to work it around in the hole and get it to seat. It should be mostly round when you're done.

5- Unhook the headlamps and untape the wiring assy. I hooked mine to the low beam wire (the lamp on the left). This means they're on all the time. The combined draw of 400ma won't affect the circuit. I used solder and heat shrink tape (both avail. at RadioShack) to make the tap in. Give yourself enough to run to each lamp, and a little slack due to the high vibration area. now tape up the assy as it originally was and tape up your leads, too.

6- Put some heat shrink on the leads and solder them to your mini-lamps. These particular lamps have mounting brackets so you can use pliers to remove and insert them to prevent damage to the lamp base itself.

7- Screw in your bulbs and turn on the ignition, both should lite, if not check the bulbs and the connections.

8- Finally slide the bulbs carefully through the grommet, it will fit snugly, but not too tight. When installed the assembly sits with the grommet at the bottom of the bulb and the top of the base. It will not fall out, or go in farther. No light leaks from the back and it looks factory from the front, and okay from the back.

Good luck and enjoy. I have picures but no web site. The only problem I can see now is that the bulbs only have a 30 hour life. It could be a frequent replace item.

Re: Eyebrow mod questions (mulisha00)

Here is my write-up I did a year or so back. Also I have since put flushmounts on (so the wiring is just spliced in to that connector now, and I went with the 4 bulb LED's because the 194 bulbs were getting too hot and starting to melt the plastic, the LED's dont even get warm so it's not a problem with them.

Re: Eyebrow mod questions (nemo963)

I wired mine into turn sigs. That way they are on all the time but when turn signal is switched that one side will blink and the other stays lit...Just something to think about if using flush mounts on sides.

Re: Eyebrow mod questions (SpeedKills)

What in the hell is that last pic of?

What I really need help on is the wiring harnesses that went to the old turn signals. Mine turn signals were not on the bike and all I have are a couple of harnesses left. What goes to the turn signals (color of harness and wires)?


All want to do is do the eyebrow mod and use the lights as signals so all I should need to do is find the correct harness and hook those up right?

That is the LED. One harness is orange and the other is light blue. They each have two wires. The left side wires are orange and green. The right side wires are light blue and green.

Re: Eyebrow mod questions (mulisha00)

I used a set of 194 LED HYPER Amber lights and got a standard 194 pig tail from the auto parts store. You will need a diode isolator if you want to have them function as signals as well and at the same time and speed.
LEDs from: http://store.directauto.com/194ledamhypb.html
Install tips: http://www.dammaps.com/RC51/Eyebrows.htm

For the flush mounts I used something different then most people because I like the look. I used the LED K&S signals which I attached to the the fairing.

Re: (waterboy420)

So if I take the original harness that went to the old front turn signals, that are not there, would I still have to use this diode thing.


When I got my bike the rear signals were hooked to a box in the back. It is made by badlands cycle. My rear signals work fine (blink at the right pace and they are bright). Do I need this box?

Re: (mulisha00)

The box sounds like a tail intergrator. I'm not sure about the diodes. I'm wired up different than rneld is.

Re: (mulisha00)

If you are using harness from front signals you will need diodes for the eyebrows, at least if you want them to blink and stay on for running lights. The box in tail might have been for the blink rate. What I did for my front sigs, was use LP flushmounts on sides wired as blinkers only, and made the eyebrows running/blinkers. So from the front of the bike you can see them blink in 2 locations, eyebrow and side.

Re: (Fiddy1)

I may not have been clear in my other posts. I am not looking for running lights, just blinkers because I filled in the holes for the signals when I painted my bike.

So my new question would be,

Do I need the diodes if I just hook up a 194 bulb to the wiring harness that went to the blinkers that are no longer being used?

I went today and bought the 194 led's from autozone $10.00. I looked at a couple of harnesses but couldn't find one that suited me. The only ones I found fit a old moder chevy/gmc and looked as if they pushed and twisted.

Re: (mulisha00)

When I did my side flushmounts on the original bodywork, they were only single filament bulbs. These were blinker only, not running lights. I would assume you won't need diodes if you only want blinkers. I am going to do this mod because I don't have side blinker holes in my upper anymore either, and plan on wiring the eyebrow lights the same way as the side flushmounts.
