I'm fed up with the rear indicators

My indicators (rear) was 2 times replaced... still moisture in it.. an dirty at the bottom, because I drilled a small hole in it, to release the water...
My warranty is ending in Feb.
now I changed the indicators to after marked ones from "Kellermann" in black..

and as I worked on it, I've seen that the license plate light was flickering and moisture also in it.. so I changed this as well with one from "Kellermann" a bit expensive but really good quality!!
I'm happy with the result and think it looks better !!

They look good Gero

Did you have to make up a bracket to fit them behind the licence plate or did they come with suitable hardware? Also did you splice into the wiring behind the plate or go all the way to the connectors on the bottom of the swing-arm?

Nice.
That flying rear fender is the only offense to my eyes on the Turismo.
I much prefer a number plate stalk....
I might try to fab one or adapt one from a street triple.

I have the same question as Bumpkin, as I will come to that at some point as well. I see you have them mounted upper which should help for the rear visibility as well (my wife insisted that original ones are too low to be visible when she follows me on her Street Triple)... I remember that Rizoma is providing a specific mount for this (reference is FR418B, and it comes with additional connector as well to allow fitting with any blinkers - while the MV ones are likely to be plugged in with JWRF connectors): Is it what you used?
mva2017 and mva2017 like this.

Hi Marc and also Hi to Chas,

well, that was another point because I wanted change the indicators - they are to low you can't see them ...

I made a U braket from alloy (2 Euro) painted in black and I used the original wiring!! Because if I want to change the after market to the OEM I need anyway new indicators. And there is a cable fitted. So what the point to strip everything off and lay down a new cable? It was an easy job.. quickly done!!
And I love it!!

Good idea... However, I did exactly this in the past to put back blinkers on a Triumph TT600 ex Cup... Unfortunately, at some point the U braket broke due to vibrations. You may need to do some reinforcement...

Good luck with that... Depends the way you build the U bracket. Torsion means introducing weakness. The U bracket I did for my wife's bike was on a 3*20 mm alloy plate on which I applied torsion on both end side... May be the way I did it, but 5000 km later, the blinkers were travelling around the bike, just hanged by the wires...

And few kms later (about 150), the license plate was gone as well (it was fixed the same way, simply it was not a U, but a L

Has anyone on this forum done away with the rear number plate/indicator hugger and fitted a separate tail tidy under the rear seat ??? I know this would affect pannier fitting but I would like to see what it looks like ??
