Help With Indicators

Post  SpeakForYou on Thu Apr 24 2014, 02:33

I need to replace the indicator lense on the rear left hand side but it seems all the ones I buy are too small. Was told that I may have the non-European ones (Canada/US Spec?) fitted. Does anyone know where I could find one? Tried Ebay but don't want to waste money if they are too wee.

Was thinking about maybe even trying to fit aftermarket ones but unsure of the spacers for the rear and front.

Thanks in advance.

American market bikes did have HUGE indicators. Maybe look at replacing the the indies completely, wither with a 'normal' set or aftermarket. Unless someone here has a lens I think you'll struggle to find one the usual ways.

LED indicators look great. You'll need a load resistor though, so they don't blink at a 100MPH lol.
It's a fiddly job, but the end result is worth it.

Was thinking they might look too wee on the bike. Whats the best spacers to use for both back and front?

I used these on front-->CLICK ME
That's on Aussie ebay, you'd no doubt find something similar on UK ebay.
Oxford brand ones maybe? And I used the standard spacers that are on the
Tcat for the rear.

A mate in college is going to bring in LED ones he has to swap over so ordered some spacers hopefully they'll arrive soon. Will have a look in college see if I can 'borrow' a resistor.

Got some indicators. rear ones are fitted, trying to do the front bit cant figure out how to fit the spacers. Do I remove the whole original indicator? Spacers dont seem to sit right. Help lol.

Yep, indicators off to fit the spacer. And to get the indies off means taking the fairing off.

Fairings are off anyway. The spacers i got a for the front and rear but I couldn't get the front ones to stay in so I'm using both. Can't see how they stay in tbh.
