About this project
If you ride you know: four wheels move people, two wheels move the soul. We’re passionate about our motorcycles. Make yours as streamlined and functional as possible with MuzaMoto turn signals.
Stock turn signals can be an eyesore and have poor visibility. MuzaMoto upgrades your bulky signals with style and are the only ones to provide true 360 degree visibility. They were designed from the ground up to improve your ride.
MuzaMoto signals integrate seamlessly into your handlebars, replacing your existing bar-ends. They can be installed on any handlebars with an internal diameter between 0.65” and 1”. This allows you to completely eliminate your stock front turn signals if desired.
The bolt-on signals can be installed on the front or back of your motorcycle to replace your existing signals. Incorporating the same design, they compliment your bar-end signals and provide the same 360 degree visibility in a sleek and compact package.
Both the bar-end and the bolt-on turn signals are machined from solid 6061 aircraft grade aluminum with a durable anodized finish.
A UV stabilized water-tight lens protects the LEDs from the elements, rain or shine. The four 1.5W LEDs provide approximately 400 Lumens of light and 360 degree visibility.
With your support and successful funding of this project, I anticipate delivery by or before July 2013. I hope you are excited about this product and choose to support the project. Please help spread the word and share with your friends.
Risks and challenges
While new to Kickstarter, we're not new to design and manufacturing. Our background in design and engineering has taught us that things can and do go wrong, often causing delays.
There are always many challenges in the development of a good product. These turn signals are no exception. The overall size and shape was constrained to that of a typical bar-end. Finding the right LED package and making it all fit while keeping it water tight was one of the bigger challenges. Securely gripping the inner diameter of a variety of handle bar sizes was another.
We already have a good working relationship with the machine shop from previous work. They do good quality work. That's no guarantee of smooth sailing, but it greatly reduces the risk involved. We are confident in being able to handle the production challenges.
Thorough product evaluation on functioning prototypes allowed design adjustments prior to final release. The risk of getting parts that are poorly made or don't work is minimal.
There is always risk of unforeseen delays in manufacturing. To account for this, we set a delivery date in July and will do our best to deliver before then.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
The handlebars must be hollow and have an internal diameter between 0.65" and 1"
If your motorcycle has factory LED turn signals, then these will blink at the correct rate. If your motorcycle has incandescent bulbs (if you can replace the bulb it's probably incandescent), then you will have to install a resistor in-line, otherwise the signals will blink rapidly.
Backers will receive a survey giving color choice as well as the option to receive resistors with your turn signals at no additional charge.
