Do our L's have the mirror blinker lights in them (red lense)? I followed another L last nite and seen his had them. Either mine dont work or he has aftermarket.

Anyone know if they make clear replacement lenses for those lights?
Not 100% sure, probably state by state law, but I think it is illigal to make any lights pointing to the rear of the vehicle clear if the are working. It is like having a broken tail light. The clear bulb could get you a ticket. They either have to be red or yellow in Virginia anyways.

I'm not too worried about those tiny little lights...cop would have to be a real dick to cite me for that.

All the lenses on my bike or clear or smoked...never had a problem

Lenses and bulbs are two different things.. Clear lenses are stock on a lot of vehicles, but they have red bulbs for brake lights.

I think you could get away with a clear lense on the mirror, while they aren't rear facing, many vehicles (BMW, vw) have clear marker lenses on the fenders. To be safe, clear lens and yellow bulb.

To replace the bulbs, first start by placing the mirror in the down position. Now look in the opening between the mirror and you'll see two tabs (should be the same color as your truck), take a screw driver and lift them up. This will remove the painted part of the mirror. Replace the bulb and replace the painted part of the mirror and you're done. Sylvania Bulb #906/921 is a good replacement.

Yea I'd throw some stealth bulbs in there to keep them legal but the clear lenses would tie in nicely with the theme I have going for my truck
