Bright LED turn signals

I have owned three Monsters (696/S2R800 and S2R1000) so far, as well as a 996. The two S2Rs came without turn signals, and I added eBay LED turn signals that seemed great in the garage and passed state inspection.

But one day a friend and I swapped bikes, and riding behind him in daylight, I noticed that the turn signals on the S2R 800 were barely visible. At night, all was okay...but it needs to be a bunch brighter to be seen during the daylight hours.

All of those bikes are gone, and my "new-to-me" S4RS has stock turn signals...ugly, but visible.

I'd like to replace them with something newer/smaller/better looking, but I'm not going back to those eBay invisible signals.

Doing some googling for "brightest LED turn signals", I am finding a couple brands (watsen and something else) that were apparently the hot setup in 2007 but are long-since out of business (probably because they were charging $400 for a set of turn signals?)

LED technology has to have come a long way since then, but google is barren.

What are some good, available, affordable options these days?

For the record, I am not a fan of integrated taillight/turn signals...I like the physical separation between the tail and T/S lights. Doesn't have to be full DOT spec, but 2-3" distance would be about right.

Thank you in advance.

I currently have the Ducati Performance LED signals on my 1200 but have used Rizoma and CNC racing led signals. The Rizomas were probably brightest.
Good luck and let us know what you got in the end!

I know this is an old thread but one word: Rizoma. They are annoyingly bright in daylight. Especially if you forget to turn them off after your turn.
