You can't have the position light function with any of these flush-mounts. I have yet to see any that have the circuitry to support it. The position lights are purely a North American thing, so none of these cheap Asian lights have them, nor do the more expensive ones (like Protons), nor do the very expensive European designed ones like Rizoma.

If you go with flush mounts, you give up the position lights. But you can use that extra wire as the power source for an LED strip or other cool lighting that would serve the same purpose. Connect the positive lead from the LED strip to that wire and the negative to the common ground.

Sorry but I didn't make a video while installing mine. Here is a link on the steps I followed.

Looks a lot like these but the listing says CBR600, and doesn't say CBR500 compatible.
Think these would work?

I don't know about anyone else, but I find myself taking special notice of blinkers on vehicles going twice as fast as normal, it's sort of a bug-to-the-light effect I guess .. hopefully other drivers have the same curiosity that I do. Lastly, there's the visibility aspect. Yes, they're not as noticeable head-on as stock, but you'll just have to make the decision yourself as to whether or not you're okay with that in the name of better looks. As you can tell from my head-on shot, they're still quite there, so I think it'll be alright.
Does it make the rear blinkers blink 2x as fast as well?

Yep, sure does. I'm sure it could be fixed with a new relay, but I couldn't find a proper one the last time I looked. Also, the location of the stock flasher relay is in an annoying spot to reach, so I'm just riding as is for now.
