I found some nice black alloy cylinder shaped indicators that I like. The problem is that they were made for cafe'd hondas and are rated for 12V 23W. Does anyone know if they would work on a bonnie? The bonnie indicators are 12V 10W.

Can I just swap the globes from 23W bulbs to 10W bulbs or is there something I am overlooking? Otherwise, can I change something else to increase the wattage getting to the signals? All help appreciated. :confused:

Go ahead and get them,and don`t worry about the 23w/10w thing.the new ones will just be brighter when they blink,a good thing. Welcome Nano.

What Rod said. No prob...just brighter. Your flash rate maybe fractionally slower but maybe undetectable and you will enjoy the extra illumination.
Cheers,
George

Thanks Rodburner and Biker7. Very helpful advice and I'm pleased that they will be a bit brighter as the aftermarkets tend to be smaller.
And thanks for the welcome.
