Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.

A weak spot of the CB?.

Post by steady Eddy on Tue 24 Mar 2015, 9:34 am

Been looking for a left hand side grab handle as mines rusted on the weld to the indicator mount...

Looking on EBay there are people trying to sell the left side with the indicator mount missing but the right side seems to fair better. Maybe the left side indicator is easier to knock when its parked up in the garage?

Anyway has anyone got one spare please?

If they all rust like that then there won't be many around, apart from the people that have taken them off to fit givi racks...

Might be better to see if you can get someone to weld it for you...

Very good advice ET, i dont know a welder so was put off getting it welded thinking time and effort stripping and painting plus what i could get charged for the welding.

But In the last two hours ive stripped the troubled area, got it welded and the 1st coat of paint is on and only cost me a fiver Smile

Was watching that link you put up but cheers anyway Llewelyn.

Mine did exactly that.  A quick fix for riding is to take the bracket off, run a drill through the mudguard and bolt the indicator onto the mudguard.  It does leave you without a grab handle though.

I wish I knew someone who could weld cheaply, cost me £30 to get mine done!

Took a bit of fiddling and a tight squeeze, but I managed to fit my Givi rack without losing them. Still very useful for bungee points!

I never had any problems with that part plus, I have never seen any damaged one. It looks like you have crashed the bike formerly so the flasher deformed the mounting rail.
