there's the possibility of using your stock taillights to do so, but i believe you need to send that out. you can also buy a clear alternatives unit and just replace the stock

I did this some time ago, I think I used the diagram that came with the unit. I have since taken it off - I just didn't feel it was as safe as traditional blinkers. Maybe the Clear Alternatives is a better solution ???

03+ are LED, unless you are very good with a stick soldering iron, you need to have them sent out.

a guy i use to ride with had the copper sv650s...and he got the clear alt. ones....and when we'd ride behind him, they were not bright at all during the day, and defenetly not much of an improvement a night either....
i'd say sent it out!

hey i just recently did this mod, within the last 2 weeks, there was a form that helped me,,, i didnt have mine sent out, im 18 years old with no expeirence with a sottering gun let alone how to spell it. i did the two top leds. harder but made blinker more visible... if u search for resistor on the form you should come up with the topic that said oem tail light blinker mod... i think thats wat it is...
gotta get back to work or id give you the link and my write up

later

thanks CHAD, that helped out a lot it wasnt exactly what i was looking for but its better than the stuff ive been getting, (try clear alternatives $100, send it out..... where?) i know they trying to help, but if i wanted to wuss out and let someone else do it or pay $100 i wouldnt be asking how to do it myself.

CJ BLUE were you saying that the instructions that came with the trailer harness worked on your SV's lights?
