Looking to use your Can-am Defender to tool around on city roads? Want to add turn signals, trailer light hookups, and a horn so that you can legally operate hay rides? Whatever you’re looking for, we’ve got all the aftermarket accessories and Can-am Defender street legal kits to make your side-by-side compliant with local regulations. The universal turn signal for a Polaris Ranger can be installed in a Can-am Defender, and SuperATV — as well as other UTV parts providers like KG Powersports , XTC Products, and Ryco Moto — also makes a Can-am Defender turn signal kit that is plug-and-play with a signal switch that mounts on the steering column. You can add extra LEDs for a Can-am Defender blinker kit, but many kits tie into the factory rear lights — no modifications necessary. Just stick it in, wire it up, and you’re good to go. You can even get street legal kits with license plate lamps!
If you decide to go a more home-made route like wiring in an old-school flasher and rocker switch with the center off, take care not to override the factory brake signal and flash. The taillights on the Can-am Defender are the top and bottom LEDs of the assembly. You can use the taillight to flash instead of the brake lights, or throw in a toggle switch to fix the brake light/turn signal issue. Most turn signal arms have a brake circuit through the switch so you can use one bulb as a brake/turn. Same idea as a toggle switch but a slightly different approach. And speaking of signal arms, some aftermarket turning signal arms come with a 3 pin LED flasher and built in indicators, while others have built-in horn switches. The Can-am defender is a two-wire system — taillight and brake light. So whatever you decide to go with for your blinker kit, you’re going to need a way to momentarily cut power to the appropriate brake light to allow it to flash while the other side still has the brake light on — be it a self-resetting device, and adapter, or a switch of some kind. The safest and easiest way to add turn signals to your rig is with a Can-am Defender turn signal kit. Either way, whatever you decide, we’ve got the blinker kits, wire harnesses, lever arms, and other turn signal accessories you need to get the job done!
