What Are the best flush mounts to get

I recently picked up an 04 12 It was bone stock right down to the mud flap.
It now has
Zx 14 calipers and master cylinder(ebay $100)
Stainless lines
Ferodo Pads.
Heli Bars(guess I am getting old DAMN)
Full Yoshi(ebay $250)
PC 3
I am Getting ready to send the shocks and forks to race tech.
I am on a budget(this is why I chose the 12).
So I am hoping to get it to where I want it to be for under 2k USD.
I only paid $4200 for it with 6 k miles has a few minor scratrches on the left(looks like a 20 mph or slower slide guess thats why he sold it so cheap scared the S**T out of him) Most of the damage is Mirror bar ends and stator cover no major body damage except I think he bent the subframe.
So now I am getting ready to start with some cosmetics.
So I was wondring what are the best led flush mounts.
I do not want to cut anything so please tell me what you liked or disliked about yours.

Don't say "oops What do you say we try that again?
Yes, yes. Yes. Without the "oops". Thataway

A lot of guys swear by Gregg's Customs - I think they may be the most popular...

As an alternative to flush mounts, some have installed "minis" such as these from Wild Hair Accessories -



Link: Motorcycle Turn Signals. Wild Hair Accessories. Motorcycle Accessories & Aftermarket European Parts.

There's one consideration with the minis, tho - You'll need to fabricate a small plate (or buy one) to fill the larger stock mounting hole in the plastics... You don't have to cut the stock plastics at all, but the mounting shaft (inside the bolster) for the mini stem is only about .375" dia. (going from memory)...

I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

Protons, hands down. Pricey but worth it.

What Sargent Hibs said.
The protons got me pulled over by law enforcement..
He said he had a 1000 and had to have some for his bike.
The strobe is a real attention grabber.

I reserve the right to be wrong....

I have Protons on my 12R, and they are tits, BUT....I have noticed lately that the LEDs in there are burning whatever they are encased in.....not what I'd expect from a $100 set of blinkers, but they still work great so...

My $0.02 on that...
