    2006 XB12Ss - Looking for new lights and signals

    I recently purchased a 2006 XB12Ss and it's pretty obvious that all of the lighting is original - slightly cracked covers, faded black plastic, yellow headlamps, etc. So I'm looking to upgrade and wanted to see what those more experienced with Buells have to recommend.

    Looking at two of these for the headlamps: https://www.superbrightleds.com/more...ink/3932/8568/

    These for the front turn signals: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Mini-LED-Tu...t/172410077788

    This for the rear light (with integrated turn signals): https://www.ebay.com/itm/Tail-Light-...t/151175984691

    And one of these for the rear light: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Brake-Taill...t/162248951976

    eBay says the rear light is compatible with my bike, but in looking at the stock rear light assembly on the bike it looks like the Krator rear light is too small. Has anyone had experience with this product or other integrated rear light assemblies?

    Also, will I need a flasher relay to correct hyperflashing with the new LEDs?

    I'm new to the awesome world of Buell so if these parts are trash, please tell me. Also, if you've come across some better parts, throw those out there too.

    The stock rear light for a 2010 XB is LED and pretty nice and cheap. SPHDonline.com

    I’d be carful with what they say fits your bike without reviews saying it’ll fit. I’ve bought aftermarket grips off eBay that said they fit my bike, and didn’t fit.

    Cooter, thanks for that link. There's some great stuff on there, and that's actually where I got my new footpeg. I would like to find a brake light assembly that can clean up the rear end a little if possible - eliminate the turn signals (integrate them into the brake light) and remove the gray plastic fender that extends out from the seat. Has anyone found a good product for this?

    MTech14, thanks for the advice.

    TPEHAK, was there supposed to be a link or more info included in that post? Or is that just something to Google?

    Thanks, TPEHAK. Is that an either/or kind of thing, or is the first one just the light and the second is the new unit to house it meaning I would need to buy both?
