I have a mate with a Benelli which has the indicators and rear light of the DB5. The Benelli boys have been replacing their rear lights with these nice LED scooter parts.
Anyone tried them on a Bimota ?

That looks promising. I wonder if I can find it in the states? If not, PayPal here I come.

Interesting... If it fits to Benelli, should be good for DB5/6/tesi also. Cheap too... so who will be the first to try Smile

I did find them in the states somewhere , will have a look and see in I stored in favourites.
What I did also find in the states was someone doing LED Benelli front indicators which go on DB5 also. So might be asking for a favour soon if I can't find in UK.

CNC, I will be ordering one as soon as I pop one out of my bike to check mounting is the same

If you guys over there need parts that are too expensive via your normal payment and shipping process, I am sure I can help. "Books" or "gifts" (Christmas is coming) via UPS etc. should be inexpensive to ship and without VAT too.

Let me know if I can help.

Apparently Benelli name was bought by a Chinese scooter manufacture and parts bit bits put on scooters.
These where the indicators I found via Benelli Tornado forum but when I went back to link no longer available Sad

The cosmetics of the new LED tail light is identical to the original Benelli one, but the fitment holes are different. Still very easy to fit. I can take a pic of one off the bike and send it to Vort to post 👍🏼

Light finally arrived and after initial checking it looked similar



Maybe just a bit of trimming off of the mounting lugs !!




No , still nowhere near getting it to fit. Refuse to trim the body of the bike and getting to the stage now were I am thinking of cracking open the light and just transplanting LED reflector into old case as the new light is heavily cut away.
Will get a picture soon.

Which one are you cutting, as it looks like, presumably the dusty one, is the old one that looks like you've been trimming on the lugs....
