    indicators

    Dropped the bike the other day, slipped whilst moving her in the garage!!! thinking of changing the indicators for new smaller leds that do not stick out so much.. Any one done this mod and do I need the resistors plus a flasher relay?

    I just had ones off a new Ktm 690, for a tenner. Rubber stems, very flexible and small enough not to get knocked off, like what happened to the originals when my mate pulled up next to me on his bike with panniers. Although not led, they have amber bulbs and clear lenses.

    I got some BIGGER rear indicators - but rubber-stems and LED; work with a cheap LED-capable flasher relay.

    Mike , i changed my rear indicators for LEDs and fitted resistors under the seat but if you get an electronic flasher relay then you don't need to fit resistors as it flashes at a consistent rate as opposed to the standard one which relies on the current being drawn for its flash rate. Have a look at the links below. Steve

    Mike I fitted some Aprilia ones from one of the 600 models, saw them on ebay, they are on Rubber mountings, and have 12V bulbs so no need to fit resistor packs etc...Name:  ETV.JPG

    those are Dorsoduro's indicators, they look really good on the capo but stick out as much as the originals

    I like discussing various issues with other owners of obscure European bikes (cit.)

    Same reason KTM owners married dentists - the bike vibrates so much, their fillings fall out!

    thinking about it, my bike is starting to look like the frankenstein monster:
    I've got a ducati 1098 rear brake pump, ducati 999 calipers on the front, aprilia shiver mirrors...

    Okey ordered the indicators, but not sure which relay to get? My understanding is that if I get the correct relay, it is a straight swop with the standard relay and I do not have to fit resistors is this correct please
