Yellow lenses for OEM Aux Lights?

Yellow/Amber lenses. Anyone know if they're available? I haven't been able to find any.

Part of the reason I put Clearwater Ericas on my bike was their offering of amber lens covers. I looked for covers for OEM lamps and found none. I even looked at spray on coatings but hauled out the wallet and got Clearwaters instead. They run off the can bus so when I hit the horn the Ericas go to interstellar bright, same with the high beam switch. On low they are great marker lamps. On high they are impossible to ignore!
mikec and JOBIII like this.

depending on your lights you may be able to find amber bulbs.LEDs
I have motolights. They wanted an exorbitant amount for their yellow LEDs, like $45 each!!! (IIRC).

I found them online, and since at Home Depot, for about $5-6 each. I got white LEDs, but I saw yellow ones the other day at HD. 30k miles later and they still work fine.

Depending the year of your bike, they changed the driving lights size in 2018?, you can use Clearwater amber covers. I use them on my 2017 GSA.

What I did on my '18 R1200GSA OEM driving lights was to use stick-on lens covers from https://www.lamin-x.com/automobile-p...lm-covers.html. I ordered the correct outside circle dimensions in yellow. And to stick them on the GS driving lights, I cut a smaller inside piece for convex inner part of the lens and used the remaining donut for of the outer concave part of the lens. So I ended up with a donut and for the outside of the lens. And a round smaller piece for the inner convex part of the lens. You can't press the stick-on lens cover over the lens in one piece. These look correct and have lasted 12K miles in all kinds of weather. Help this helps.

Going to war without France is like going hunting without bagpipes, you just leave a lot of noisy useless baggage at home.

Has to be the Darla covers as the others would be way too big.
