What I did to my Road Star was take out the single filament bulb housing and installed a double contact housing. Then I put red 1157 bulbs which can be found on Amazon.com. Then I put stock clear lens all the way around. Stock amber in front is legal in Kentucky no mod there but you can not run rear amber bulbs. I tried leds but the flasher would not work without mods or resisters. So I have red running lights with clear lens and red turns with simple wiring into tail light circut. Also I wired a rely in the starting circuit to disable the headlight, running light when starting. I don't know why Yamaha missed this simple mod in there Road Stars. I think the newer one my have this mod.
Thanks, Andy

Kuryakyn has the red lenses for 10.99. Did mine a few months ago....they are replacements so they fit perfect! I will post pics when I have time. I used the exsisting clear bulbs too. Looks great!

I bought a set of passing lights with the bar and signals already togeather. I used the amber lens on the front and took my front signals and put them in place of the rear. Painted the clear lens with red lens paint and the tail light as well. Added a brake light licence plate frame. Now I have rear running lights and turn signals that are red. The rear tail light is a running light and a red stop light and the license plate is a stop light. Got my BUTT lit up.
