At MBW Motorcycle Products, Inc. we don't consider imitation to be the sincerest form of flattery; it's stealing.
We are the original developer and manufacturer of custom LED turn signals for a variety of bikes, starting over
9 years ago with the Kawasaki Mean Streak. They were developed as a cost effective alternative to frenching,
with an emphasis on ease of installation, a
clean and tight fit and reasonable cost.
Beware of low budget rip-off imitators that
are using, among other things, the wrong LEDs
for the job. We have an exclusive
agreement with the manufacturer of the
(patented) flexible LEDs arrays that we use,
and no one else can use them to manufacture
similar products. The LEDs we use are
high intensity and are specifically designed
to be used for direct view applications (like
turn signals), and are not accent or similar
non-direct view application LEDs that are
dangerously inappropriate and inadequate for
use as turn signals due mainly to their lack
Why even bring it up? We're more than happy to have our own products judged solely on their own merit, but have had complaints from dissatisfied people who thought they were buying our product and ended up with a poor substitute that was nothing more than a badly made rip-off. We have numerous
distributors that stock and install our products and would recommend that if you have any questions as to the authenticity of an LED turn signal or sidemount to be an MBW original, to contact us directly.
