      Has anyone fitted similar to their T'Bird or

          There is another company in the UK offering replacement LED bulbs and
          relay/flasher thing that would retain the appearance of your bike. Several
          Tiger owners seem to have good dealings with this online retailer.

            Oh yes, there are a few places you can get replacement LED 'bulbs'.
            I was thinking of changing not just to LED but having a different
            look by replacing the entire indicator. I know this is more
            traditional on sports bikes but though it may also work on the T'Bird.
