Just a footnote: those light kits you're looking at are sometimes referred to as city lights. Check the bulb wattages before you drill anything.

I have used them in the pasr (drilled into auto headlamps) and would have put them in my '02 sixxer's lights already if they had green ones in stock. The rubber grommet keeps the condensation out well.

(2) problems, 1. I don't think they'll be bright enough for blinkers (they kinda make your headlights glow the color of the bulb your using, cool looking but not bright and only visible when your headlights are NOT on) 2. drilling out the hole in you headlight will cause plastic particles to fall inside your sealed unit... with a little static charge present, they stick themselves to the most awkward parts of the INSIDE of your lamp housing (I tried flushing w/ water, Q-tips etc and still wasn't able to get all the pieces out [V])

Anywho, as city lights OR blinkers, the effect should be trick, especially on the '03's, just plan it out ahead of time or else you'll be kicking your own ass when it doesn't go as smoothly as you'd hoped...

Hope this helps.

I hoestly doubt they'd be too visible w/ your headlights on, I have an amber center light on my 02 and it's just a highlight at night.

If you're going to try drilling, get a progressive drill bit (looks like a cone) for sheet metal drilling, that way you can make an existing hole bigger step-by-step w/o F-ing up the perimeter.

You might also want to experiment by drilling holes in an old piesce of plastic (like your mud guard ;)) ... try the grease trick or stick a couple of layers of duck tape to the side that the bit will be coming out to see if you can catch the pieces.

Even if you dont do blinkers, colored "city lights" in the corners would be sweet [8D]
