    Bo Blast turn signals fit a Firebolt XB9R?

    Hi all,

    Just picked up a 2003 Firebolt XB9R and trying to pick up a few pieces to return it to stock condition.

    Turn signals are top of my list, and are practically unobtainable, as I'm sure many of you know. Years ago when I owned a Honda Hawk GT everybody was stoked about Buell signals, and I see that lots of other brands' user forums have recommended that mod over the years, so that's probably where they all went...

    My question is - although they have different p/ns, Blast turn signals look very similar and I've read that they fit the Firebolt. Does anyone have first hand knowledge of whether that's true? If I can't find the specific Firebolt parts at least it would be good to have Buell turn signals.

    Thanks,

    d.

    I bought a set just like that from eBay or somewhere years ago to fit to my old SV650. I like the look of the stock Buell turn signals and thought these were an affordable alternative.... however I thought they were no longer available. Thanks for the tip that Twin has them!

    BTW, the difference between the turn signals is mostly either a drain hole in the lens housing and/or differences in the length of the stalk.

    You're a drain hole.

    Good one Cooter.

    34nineteen - DON'T BUY THE SIGNALS FROM TWIN MOTORCYCLES. They are NOT replacements for the Firebolt parts - they look similar but DO NOT have threaded posts and WILL NOT fit on the front of your Firebolt. The threaded post on the turn signals double as fairing mounts and the Twin units don't work.

    Similarly, there is an outfit on eBay called uk-motors_de that sells "replacements"... despite what the photo shows, these are no good either - they're the same as the Twin parts.

    So I'm still looking for signals...

    I'm in the same boat. Mine snapped off today at the rubber piece from aging. Looks like I may have to tape it back until we find some that fit...

    I ended up going with these. You lose the original look of the Firebolt but they don't look bad, at least imo.
