I thought they were all smoked with an orange inner lens...

You used to be able to get lenses through Racing Planet but they appear to have been discontinued...

Just buy a better looking set of new ones, the standard ones are functional & look like shit anyway.
Not so many cheap sets anymore though (now that China has earned it's place in engineering history by getting into space).
Most stuff is now as expensive as buying from the good old US of A except you get free shipping which still caps the deal for me most times. Cheap deals are still around but you have to search pretty deeply to find them.

Well, it might fit, but it ain't the right part... If you were to buy it, the smart money would be spent here

I really want to believe you, but I can't... From the factory, the lenses came as...

Y0039.K - Buell, outer Lens turnsignal indicator
Y0040.K - Buell, Lens inner, turn signal indicator

If you want me to strip an indicator and post pictures, I will...

You can however take the inner lens out and put an orange bulb in. Indicator looks darker when not in operation. I've done this on my Firebolt.

I've even got a complete set of indicators that I can dig out if you want to make an offer on them...
