I'm looking for some recomendations for turn signals for my new (used) XL1200S. I want them to be small yet visible and i'm going to relocate the front to the forks. The last aftermaket set i purchased, which was years ago for an old shovel, were poor quality and the bulbs were constantly going out - don't want to go down that road again.

I was talking with a good friend of mine last week. He owns an Indy shop and does some work for me occasionally. Anyway, he said the EPA has nearly put a stop to the chroming industry. Something about a hazardous by-product from the process. He said that's why the good qualilty chrome is really expensive. The cheaper stuff is made using a different process without the same hazards, but the downside is less quality. I don't know crap about this - just what HE told me.
