I'vw been searching for easy ways to put the light inside the fairing beside the brake light I figured its easier to use original light that came with the bike than to buy a new one and deconstruct to fit inside the fairing behind the mesh screen. Heres step by step easy way to do it. Disregard the bulb for the plate holder we have no use for that for now.

First I detached and disassembled signal light housing.
Pulled out the original wiring no cutting or splicing needed.




Put some 3m double tape just to eliminate any vibration after install



Next i put ziptie to the existing hole on light assembly then zip tied it next to the mesh screen becareful not to touch the bulb and make sure the bulb does not touch the mesh screen ,plastic fairing or any wires that might melt. You can loosen the plastic tray inside compartment and remove rubber ties thats holding the wires so theres space to get the light assembly behind the mesh screen.











Connect wires to socket its clearly marked wit R -right L - left




Test first before putting back everything works great even on daytime its excellent at night.










I hope this helps. Thanks again guys. :)

Looks good but it won't last. The globe and reflector are now exposed to water and dirt etc. The reflective material is very delicate and will degrade.

Thanks for the interesting insight into your mod and for the helpful pics. Not sure if I can be bothered but I like the result you got.

Cheers

You may not intend to ride in the rain but some things are out of your control. :jsm:
What about washing your bike or riding in the early morning with fog or parking over night when there is heavy dew? Just sayin'...
Personally I’d not leave the bulbs and reflectors exposed as you have.
In my case I purchased a set of extremely bright LED signals which came with resisters. I mounted them securely by using metal strapping wrapped around the rear support tubes. I didn’t think to photograph the whole procedure, it was rather straight forward. Well, all except making up a pair of adapters to go from the bullet style connectors used on the LED’s to the square type used on the MV harness. Of course I learned after the fact that Rizoma made just such adapters and relatively inexpensive too. :cry:

A flat piece of flat lexan sealed over each bulb housing might help extend the life of the mod. Never hurts to protect your electrical system, with the potential of an exposed short to muck up other systems :jsm: Another 20min to seal it up might be worth it :)

Just fitted led strip lights in the rear grills for the indicators (will post pics when finished) just wondering where the indicator relay is located and what type it is , 3 or 2 wire? And what connector it has got? So I can source an led relay. Thanks

To answer my own question and for the to share my wisdom,

Te relay is located under the right hand black infill panel under the handle bar, sitting neatly on top of the wiring loom. and its a 2 wire relay.

Lucky for me my old R6 relay just about fits.:)
