ah good call. I guess lucky for me I picked up an 18 and not a 19, haha. Watsen makes great stuff so whatever you end up with i'm sure will look great. I'm waiting on the new connectors I ordered to mount my Watsen flush mount signals for the front turn indicators. I'm a stickler for doing things oem style and have it all plug in play, so the last thing i'd do is chop up the harnesses on either the bike or the stock signals (though, ill probably never use the stock ones again, I like keeping oem parts around just in case).

Nice! You and me both brother. I always order OEM style connectors for whatever I'm installing. Roger at Watsen Design always makes sure he has OEM for the bikes too which is great.

I got some signals for the front from him too, but had to go for some tall boys because the location on the 2019s is near the headlight, not on the sides of the bike anymore.

I can confrim the the tail light is all one unit, that goes from one side of the bike around to the other. However the brake lights are only on each side of the single unit (eg 2 separate brake lights). That is why we have made the plate holder that goes over the middle of the light unit. Therefore enabling the lights and brake lights to be seen, each side of the newly installed number plate.

Got them online for less than 30 delivered from a bicycle tuning store.


And don't torque them more than 20 Nm to Noel's advice .

Why torque to 20NM?

The higher torque pressures cause distortion in the hub bearing races and would contribute to premature bearing failures.

This was all documented by The Knurl (Noel, the curmudgeon).

I went with R&G's swing arm version. Pretty much like stock but much cleaner and less bulky.

I know to each there own, but seems like you can either show off the wide rear tire or the clean look under the seat, I originally did the tidy on my 15 RR, this year doesn't come with the side arm, only later to switch to the Rizoma side arm , just my preference. Then picked up a 19RC these have the side arm but ugly blinkers and license mount, did the R&G bracket, with some rizoma blinkers, i think it looks nice. When you look at a bike with the side arm license mount it makes the swingarm look longer and the seat shorter. I think this is a cool look.
