mirror and turn signal relocation

Has anyone changed their mirrors on a 2010 or 2011 Brutale and relocated the turn signals? If so, what turn signals did you use and where did you get them?

Moved my turn signals within weeks of buying my 1090, buzzing mirrors drove me nuts. Bought a set of turn signals off ebay, no particular make just sourced the ones which most closely resembled the rears in shape. Then put a set of rizoma mirrors on. Pics in the gallery

I used 'bike it' indicators and I fitted 2 x 23 ohm resistors per side, the indicators look similar to standard.

have fun

Isn't it BECAUSE of the LED indicators that you need resistors? The lower load of the LED in relation to a filament bulb causes a faster blink rate. The resistors add the load that was displaced and slow the blink rate.

Ok, here's the rub...If you hae LED indicators, which apparently the 2010 1090RR has, then additional resistive load is not required. If you have a model that has filament bulbs, you will need to add resistors to match the load that was removed. Heat Sink resistors should be used.
