TV/Rivale/Stradale standard indicators relocation?

Hi everyone,

I have a Turismo Veloce, and sometimes leading group of bikers. I did about a hundred of kilometers today with my wife following me on her Street Triple, and she mentioned that my indicators are not really well positioned when leading a group as too low for being easily seen. As per my understanding after discussion with her, moving them above the level of the license plate should be solving this problem, as in this position they would become much more visible.

As anyone done that with the standard indicators, and if so, how did you mount them on the standard plate holder?

Thanks

R&G do a tail tidy that moves the standard indicators to the top corners of the licence plate. Personally I don't like it much but it does what you ask.

Good find, but I'd like to keep the fender, as I'm riding sometimes under the rain, and it does a good job. But may be I can have a look at least at the fitting instruction to see what I can do.

Thanks.

Partly, as it involves changing the indicators by adaptables one (even if Rizoma, it is still adaptable ones)...

I have the MV sport plate holder fitted, it doesn't have a fender and I have no problems when it rains. I guess the number plate acts as a kind of gender.

Maybe the size of the huge aero-brake syst*h*h*h* UK number plate is also participating into this . Around here, it is a bot smaller, and I guess the fender may make a difference...

Use a bigger number plate and forget you vanity. Just a thought.

In France, we can't even use a bigger plate. I's forbidden and would cost us as much as using a smaller plate than the one we should (and not only money, it would cost us in both case a drive license point). And sorry for the joke about the big number plate. I had an English colleague who came here to work, and during his first months, his bike was still registered in UK. We had a ride together in french alps in couple of occasion, and the first time it was his first on the continent. He used this argument of big Aero Brake Plate to justify the fact he was having difficulties to follow (which was not really surprising looking at how much change you have to absorb when you ride here : different lane, plus additional risks linked with the high rate of diesel engine used here, ...). Anyway, I liked the argument, and for sure it's one that I can't use myself (you need a bag full of argument sometimes )
