Here's a little cheap trick to make DR turn signals brighter...

So I took the amber plastic off just to find out that it is not really reflective. The inside is black plastic with a quick (and incomplete) spray of silver-ish color.
Had some 3M reflective tape lying around and I put two pieces behind bulbs on both sides on the back and you know what - I swear it is noticeably brighter when looking from the back?
Plan on doing the front too, and need to check the brake light too - not sure what kind of reflector is in there...
There you go... a quick cheap mod, every bit helps I guess!

Great idea, did you use the silver metallic duct tape?
Nope I had a little bit of 3M reflective tape that I bought at Autozone earlier to put a bit of it on my Helmet and on my top Givi case. So it was an actual reflective tape stuff, adhesive on one side.
I am guessing that foil would work if you had some double sided tape to hold it in place.
