    Another XT500 build

    A little more 3D printing for those of you who are interested... The stock blinkers are big and although retro cool they take a kicking on the trail so I wanted something retro looking but LED to save wattage and smaller. So I picked up some penny marker LEDs and hit the 3D modeling software...
