I want to delete the fairing mounted mirrors with turn signals. 2003 R 600

I'm going to delete my stock front fairing mounted mirrors and replace them with a nice set of top mount turn signals. I want to keep my flush mount front signals and add the mirror delete signals (usually a 06+ mod). There will be 4 front turn signals to better alert other drivers on my desired choice of direction. I've been searching and cant seem to find a kit for the 03 GSXR 600's.

I plan to get the CRG Arrows for the bars because they look sick and they are street legal. I'm so pumped up about modding my bike. I'm loven my life since I got my 03 Al Stare on the road (first bike).

I found these. These mirror block off lights look like a high quality product. Does anyone know where I can get a wire schematic so I can figure out how I should wire these into the harness and have 4 front turn signals?

Ditching mirrors is a terrible idea.

But lights are two wires. Really doesn't matter how you hook them up but just tie them to the other blinkers. Probably Will be black on new lights to black/white on bike at old signals

I have no idea what your saying. (Edit: Are you talking about wire color?) But anyway. Can I back probe the side mount turn signals to find out how much voltage is going to these lights? Also, If I remember correctly by running the new lights in parallel I won't affect the brightness of the existing side mount turn signals. I want both top and side mount signals to blink at the same time and be equal in brightness.

And if you read the entire thread you would have seen that im going to be installing CRG Arrow mirrors.

Those are LED lights, so polarity matters. When you get the new lights, strip the ends back and touch them to the battery terminals to determine which wire is power and ground. If the lights work it is right, if not it is backwards. LEDs draw very minimal amps so they should not affect the brightness of the turn signals. I would just tie them into the factory turn signal wiring.

I'm trying to remember some things from electronics class. A LED is a diode and can only flow current in one direction meaning if you hook up the connections the wrong way it will not affect anything and will not cause any damage to the LED correct?

You may need resistors on your led's (pos/neg wires)to keep them from hyper flashing...
