I have a broken one of these....flexible rubber arms with grooves (But not as flexible as I would hope it transpires)....led strip of 4 and clear lens....from a DB6(r).anyone seen them on any other bikes or can find a link? They also use the same lens on the nose cone "eared" indicators



Also looking for anyone that knows where to get these from also...strangely the indicators seem to have a separate led bulb and central concentric lens cover and have stamped on the lens "Pat pending"///??...Who applies for a patent for an indicator??

I'm sure I've seen the DB6 ones on ebay but can't currently find them. Just a generic LED indicator

All the best

I had to fix my broken "flexible" stalk (vibrated itself apart) by reaming the hole to size and then threading in a hollow lamp "stud" and epoxying the entire assembly together. It has held up for a while now.

BTW, they are NOT LEDs but rather each signal has 4 tiny orange incandescent lamps in it.

I would love to change the rears out to something better but the fronts wont match. I have also thought about 3-D printing some front blanks from ABS and installing handlebar end signals.

I do like the following brands (from the Bellissimoto site) and some are very Bimoto-esque:

- CNC Racing Sky-1
- Moto Corse SYENCRO
- Motogadget

Maybe when I make those blanks I'll try to incorporate some low-profile signal insert.

Same happened with one of mine....epoxyed inbetween the one of the grooves to keep it intact...Oh lordy...what have you done....Those Billet Moto Corse Indicators....in satin silver or anodised black...fat more fitting for a DB6 rear end than whats on as standard...

https://www.bellissimoto.com/parts/lighting/turn-signals/turn-signals-1/motocorse-syencro-billet-homologated-led-blinkers-pair-with-integrated-resistors-1

I've never seen a "shop" outside of MotoCorse itself that sells their products

I also quite like these...and check out the others on this website....Hhmmm shiney billet or black with smoked lens...which would blend better

https://www.bikermart.co.uk/Highsider-Cortona-HI~Power-LED-Motorcycle-Indicators-E~marked

Koso units...but again I like the blingy alloy polished units...

https://www.bikermart.co.uk/Koso-e~marked-LED-Motorcycle-Indicator-Pair

swipey swipey led lights like the new audis?

https://www.bikermart.co.uk/Shin-Yo-RUN-Animated-LED-Indicator-Turn-Signal

Same company....swipey swipey action leds also.....and probably more "fitting"

You beat me to this one. Wanted to post in FOR SALE section.... There are a lot of red flags in this listing: seller with ZERO feedback, Florida plated bike sold out of Texas (not really a big deal but why not mention it in the text, could become an issue for local buyer) and of course the already mentioned right rear turnsignal (again no mention of it in the text). What other "insignificant" surprises await a potential new owner?!
