    Default How man Lumens are our stock blinkers?

    So I'm doing a DIY LED front light bar; and I'm trying to figure out how many Lumens 1 of our blinkers are?
    That way when I order my LEDs I know (give or take) the brightness.
    I've looked all over and can't find any info. Maybe I can find the Bulb product # and try to find it that way...

    It might very depending on the manufacture of the bulb, as they may use different coatings and who and how the lens is made. You need special equipment to measure these things. I'm not sure if my friends headlight machine would pick it up that great, as it looks for a hot spot. I would put as many as you can, better to be to bright and be seen vs under lite.

    yea true, i just know that yellow or orange usually aren't as bright as cool white or light blue so i was just curious if anyone knew.
    Probably tracking down a replacement bulb # would be best... i shall see. thanks

    I searched under 1157 or even 1156. And I did not see any LM specs on Google. And adding n/a to it will even dim them down a little more as that adds the amber coaring.

    Are there different brightness' of LEDs available?

    I put LED strips under my tail to use as blinkers, they look great at night but during the day they are very hard to see. Is there a way to get brighter LEDs?

    Look for 5050 SMD LEDs. I'm no expert but I think these are currently the brightest.
