LeDude, you were so close to removing the bulb for ID purposes (1157 type?) and showing how to remove the mirror itself. Should be able to remove some mirror silvering to place small red LED behind that clear glass as a rear facing front turn indicator.

Other than that, another great job and thank you for it.

once you have the lens off, it's just a simple twist to get the bulb out...

the mirrors on the 650 are not the see through kind, you have to scratch the back coating to get anything to shine through it, not worth the effort, might as well take the mirror off, and have a new see through set cut at a mirror shop.

LeDude's 650 is a 2004 and uses a P21 bulb that is like a 1156. On later years Suzuki used a different bulb with the locator pins in different locations. But on my 08, I just ground down the (wrong) pin on my LED 1156 bulb and it fits tight with only 1 pin holding.

For making your turnsignals into full time running lights, follow my topic "Second Magic Blinker....." that I will be updating when the new relays and sockets get here. The quality of my photo layout will not be on par to LeDude's. :D viewtopic.php?f=1&t=61267

OK, someone please let out the secret to popping out the mirror lens without breaking something. Contrary to my original thoughts, the tupperware on my K4 has become age-embrittled and I don't want to break any more of those G%^$%^[email protected]#$&M^&^%[email protected]#[email protected]#ING plastic tabs off anywhere else.

Got the screw cover and screw out without any damage but that d*** lens won't free itself and I'm not going to do any more prying without your assistance.

Thanks

It really should only take sticking a screwdriver into the hole where the screw came out of, and pivoting the screwdriver end towards the front of the bike. No tabs are there to be broken.

Yep, thanks LeDude. I've been looking in the wrong place for your videos (looking on your web page instead of youtube). Thanks for all the excellent work BTW.
