Discreet indicators

Postby Steve S » Mon Feb 19, 2018 4:10 pm

I've been looking a while and settled on these form China, £10 from Ebay.

They are metal bodied, very bright 12 segment LEDs and the 8mm thread replaces the headlamp shell bolts.

The rear mounting was more of a fuss; I made a 2mm aluminium bracket that bolted onto the back of the light assembly.

Quite pleased that they look almost "right" and involve no permanent surgery!

Well spotted Paul, not yet wired up yet but have been bench tested. Chinese handlebar switch and flasher unit cost £20. A small resistor is needed in parallel with each pair of LEDs to make them work properly.

Yes a nice little unit, came with a wiring diagram - good quality. Bought off EBay for £19. and since noticed being sold by U.K. Dealers for £39.99!
