Some have had them replaced under warranty which may be an option for you..

To do a complete and correct replacement it is a bit fiddly. The connector is located under a plate on the bottom of the swinging arm, the cable feeds from here to the number plate area on the inside of the plate hanger under numerous clips and covers.

Have a look here, you will need to remove the rear wheel or the plate hanger to get sufficient access. Both will need to be torqued correctly on reassembly. Screws for cable covers could be corroded which may cause problems.

As said above, if the bike is still in warranty then get a dealer to do this.

The easy alternative is to snip the wires, solder in the new indicators and then use heat-shrink tube over the joint. If bike out of warranty then this maybe the way to go but if that's the case I would be replacing with Rizoma indicators or similar anyway.

Did it 3 times without removing rear tire, it is pain in the a..! I even cut allen key to have more space to tight the screw, take the PROZAC to do same as me or listen to Bumpkin and snip the wires....

The more I think about those indicators, the more the conclusion is : when will we find a red light assembly including the indicators?

Basically, where the original indicators are, they are prone to be watered at the first heavy rain (and the right one is in the exhaust flow, which do not help). Integration of indicators somewhere else is not possible to the paniers placement, so ultimate and only solution is a rear light assembly including built in indicators circuitry...

After purchasing my new TVL in July 2016, on the ride home from the dealer I noticed condensation inside the rear offside indicator, I drilled a small hole in the black plastic holder and the problem went away.

18 months on I am starting to think about fitting alternative led units on the rear. I can see that some have fitted different indicators but would like to know what is involved, I would like to go with the cutting the wires close to the original indicator option and connecting the new units with waterproof bullet connections also making a new bracket. One of my concerns is will the new units flash at the same speed as the front indicators ? Looking at the wiring behind the rear indicators there only seems to be one wire on each side so how does the earth work? Any suggestions or guidance would be great.

Thanks Andre
