Aftermarket rear turn signals

My right rear turn signal gave up about two months ago and I had it replaced under warranty. It was a labour intensive exercise which took almost two hours.

Earlier this week the left side decided to join the right side in heaven (or hell). Though i could have it replaced under warranty and waste two hours of waiting, i decided to have them replaced with a pair I had purchased from Aliexpress (yes another China made ones).

Luckily i had a pair of brackets from a pair of brake and clutch reservoir which fitted perfectly.

Let's hope these last longer than the originals.

They look neat.

If you have a road worthyness test, wherever you are from, then they may fail on width from the bikes centreline. Depends on regulations and how thorough the tester is.

Like you both my rears failed, water could get in but not out. Had them replaced by the dealer but they were half full with water a week later. I carefully drilled 1mm holes in the bottom of the black plastic casing, the water drained out. Have been working ever since, in all weathers, for 12,000km so far.

Thanks!

Yes we have road worthiness tests here in Singapore for vehicles more than three years old. But there is no test for width from the centre line. As long as they are similar to originals it's ok, for eg, LED to LED. Incandescent to LED is illegal.

Are you still on your road trip?

Both of mine even before they failed had rattling noise.

Yes agree that it's not the best place for indicators but for looks, can't be beat.

I had one fail just before I was going on my French trip this year. On a hunch I decided to check the point where the rear indicators connects to the loom which is located under the swingarm. A plate covers the connectors for the indicators and the rear number place light. Luckily for me it was just a loose connection. Also its not waterproof so water and crap can get on the connectors. Worth checking if you ever have one fail.

To replace an indicator you have to take the rear tail tidy thing off, take the wiring out and then replace the indicator. Rather a lot of time just for a simple lamp replacement. I have a R&G tail tidy and some CNC Racing indicators. When the bike goes in for its service I will get the tail tidy installed with the original indicators and see if we can get an easier connector added which will mean they can be replaced without taking the whole thing off again!
