2005 - 2009 R12RT Signal Light Lens Difference?
Know this is a silly question but the signal light lenses came in two (2) configurations. One amber and one clear. The clear lens has an amber light bulb and the amber lens has a clear light bulb. Both specifically do the same thing in that when flashing it's an amber colour.
Amber - BMW Part # 63217687460
Clear - BMW Part # 63217687459
My question is, 'Why two (2) different lens colours"?
Is there a specific law that BMW has to adhere to between Europe and North America?
Clear lenses with white LED's
[QUOTE=lkchris;838294]It's all a matter of cosmetics and one's preference for one over the other.
Also important to note is that the bulb sockets are different between clear and colored lens installations, as the amber bulbs (PY21W) have offset pins and the clear bulbs have straight-across pins (P21W).[/QUOTE]
My '05 R1200RT had clear signal lenses with amber (PY21W) bulbs when I purchased it.
I changed out the Amber bulbs with BAU15S-x18-T: 18HP-LED 1056 LED Tower bulbs from here: [URL="http://www.superbrightleds.com/search/led-products/BAU15S-x18-T/"]http://www.superbrightleds.com/search/led-products/BAU15S-x18-T/[/URL]
The color is cool white, they supposedly put out 120 lumens. I also installed load resistors and wired them as Running Lights/Turn Signals with my Skene Designs, Amber Photon Blasters. They also function in unison with the Skene "ALERT" function.
