rear lenses; smoked

Please assist by confirming 2006 K1200S has same rear turn signal lens as 04-05 and 07-08...

for some reason the sites selling these list lenses applicable to these years but not 06????

consistent with the off-shore, Amazon etc.

Pirate lists one lens for all years but with our exchange a little pricier....

thanks in advance

Re: rear lenses; smoked

Hey, why diminish the light in back. I had a friend who put a "smoked" lens on his bike and you could hardly tell if it was on or even see the brake light. In the age of drivers on cell phones, yikes. Are the Asian ones approved by your Country "DOT". You gotta think about this. I grew up riding in an era where bikes with turn signals, no way. Now I look at them as a hazard signal on while going through a intersection. I don't light up the front like some train coming down the track as some need to. That is my line in the sand. Yes officer, I was blinded by that bike with all the lights and it was going really fast.

Went with clears and amber bulbs on the signals only; I actually prefer the tail light red
