Thread: Flashers as position lights

    Flashers as position lights

    On many of my previous,non-BMW bikes, the front flashers were acting as position lights (I.E remained consistently on while riding).
    I've made a few searches and found no information on how or even if it's possible on my bike (2005 R1200RT).

    Anyone ever came across a way to enable this?
    TIA!

    Check out Kisan Signal Minder website. I'm not sure if their products have that capability or not.

    You just need a two filament bulb and socket that would fit in the twist lock mount. I would look at a K1200LT tail light socket. You might find a match at a good auto parts store or a you-pull-it salvage yard. That type bulb may have a bayonet or push in base. The challenge may be finding a socket that firs you turn signal housing.

    Combine Turn Signal/Position Lights

    weisertechnik.com sells LED inserts fitting the regular BMW turn signals. Combined white/yellow (driving light/turn signal) and red/yellow (brake light/turn signal), CANBUS approved etc.
    Extra wiring will be needed to feed the added functionality of driving light or brake light.

    Thanks, I'll look into this!

    Edit: Although they offer a module exactly for my request, they don't seem to offer anything for the RT; only LEDs for flashers on external housings (while the RT has blinkers integrated in the fairing).
    No big deal... I was taking a chance!
