turn signals.. can i use tomos turn signals for kinetic

Brandon Compton /

hola fine folks... so i scored a kinetic like a week ago and i'm gonna be fixing it up for my gf to ride and i want to make it as safe as possible(yes i know it has more to do with the rider then the moped) and put turn signals along with mirrors and so forth on it. so i was on 77mopeds and treats and i can only find turn signals for tomos not kineitc or vespa. so do any of you savy folks see an issue with me using them? such as the voltage and so forth or if i order them and hardwire them will i be fine.

seems i should be fine but rather get some opinions before i add them to my cart.

gracias.

The turn signals themselves are pretty much universal. If you want a different voltage you can simply install the correct bulb.

Pretty sure youll be fine. As long as youve got live and ground wires coming from them (or if the signals ground themselves to whatever theyre mounted to). Youll need a flasher fuse as well i believe. As to the voltage I /think/ that earlier tomoses had 6v stator plates and newer models have 12v. It just depends on what year of the tomos the signals came off of. If worse comes to worse just buy new bulbs ;)

appreciate the feedback!

If you're just looking at generic turn signals, you might try Amazon, or just google moped turn signals. I broke one of the front signals on my Tomos and was surprised at how expensive they were to replace. Especially since they're just that chromed plastic. I ended up buying a full set of four on Amazon that were nearly like my Tomos signals... and the price for all four was less than one OEM part. I only replaced the front ones, so now I have spares on hand.
