    Default B.O.S.S. ....almost

    My new 2019 M109R B.O.S.S. has a few areas that Suzuki should pay attention to when they're reaching into the parts bin!
    What's with all these chrome / silver parts?
    For one of the most expensive motorcycles in their lineup, you would think they could avoid using generic parts from other bikes

    You’re late to the party on this one Luap. Those same issues have been on the “Major Complaint List” since Suzuki first introduced the B.O.S.S. 4 or 5 years ago. Those things can also be a blessing in disguise, because it affords you the opportunities to make your own personal mods and upgrades to replace those eyesores.

    Yep, starting with these super bright BLACK sequentially flashing turn signals

    Where on your bike are they located, or going to be located? I couldn’t tell by the pics you posted.

    The pic I posted was just laying on the battery so I could light it up to show the brightness
    I'm just going to attach them where the stock ones are. There's a mounting bracket already there so it will be easy. I'll just need a couple of washers.

    The existing blinkers have 3 wires though, the new ones have two. I assume that's because the existing ones have the daytime running light function aka always on

    This is correct! Order a Blinker Genie and it will definitely help you out during your install!

    I had never heard of a blinker genie. Just checked it out. Looks like that's the way to go to maintain the running light function of the flashers
    Mine have built in circuitry tho to light up the three arrows in sequence (see pic) any time they have power, so they would be doing that all the time

    LOL! I said the same thing when I bought my 2019 BOSS. I'm in the process of looking to change out those same parts you listed so that it's a truly blacked out motor.

    In 2006 Suzuki knew that they had built a bad azz muscle cruiser The M109R. So they mass produced a lot of parts for 15 years. Look for a change in 2021.

    JESUS IS LORD! 2008 Candy Max Orange Debeavered, Yana Shiki 2" bones, Grasshopper backrest, V&H Big Shots, Dunlop Elite-3 250 rear, Dunlop D251 150 front, LED brake lights, micro brite rear turn signals, Arlen Ness billet chrome grips, smoothie rear fender, ATRE, Wolo horn, Scorp motor mounts, Gel seat, Chrome M109R derby cover, A&R 6K HID.
