CB 500s front indicator

Post by steady Eddy on Tue 29 Oct 2013, 10:14 pm

I need a front indicator for my CB500s as my front right is held together with tape and after looking on ebay and finding ones only for the CB500 i was a bit worried due to the fairing the 500s one might be longer?

thought I'd re-use an old thread rather than create another one.  The front indicators on the CB500S are longer stemmed than the rear ones.  I was wondering if anyone had used an alternative that fit neatly?

Buy some flush fit ones off eBay, they fit directly on to Fairing, no need to take them off when removing fairing, look good too.
I like things to be original, but these are more practical, I would post a piccy but don't know how to, maybe someone else can put one on.
Happy days.

I got one from wemoto for an S and it didn't fit right.  I got one from an earlier model off of here it's different looking entirely but still fits, so I'd like to find somewhere that has S ones too.

I got some generic arrow-shaped ones like theses: https://www.dafy-moto.com/clignotants-arrow-dafy-moto-noir-orange.html

They're quite short, but long enough not to touch the fairing; they're almost flush with it.

Will try and post a pic later.

fazers going great, thanks. Plenty of grunt, handles like its on rails, whats not to like? The lack of engine raking took a bit of getting used to at first, but other than that its all good

These are the ones I fitted. Youll have to make something to clamp them to the fairing if you dont want to drill fixing holes in it, I used a disc cut from 3mm perspex. I may have some pictures of how I fitted them, Ill have a look later

Bumpity Bump

Did you get some to fit on the back as well ? I was thinking of doing this myself but thought it would look odd with them on front and old ones on back.
