That tail light blinker assembly looks like the UFO one, you can pretty much get them anywhere.

Thats it!


Put these on the front, had to go with a different relay, a universal relay from any parts store will work.

Need Some Help

Just got back from a dual sport event and need some advice on mirrors since I broke one due to a pretty big mud hole. Anyone with a good aftermarket one to recommend? Where did you get them?

Also - I've looked - but cannot locate short clutch and brake levers. When I was a kid I used to have "DeHandlers" on my RM 125 and loved them. I can't find anything to replace the stock ones and want something a little better than just cutting off the origianl levers.

Thanks in advance

Mean Dean,

I have been looking for the "shorty" levers also. I have contacted everyone i can think of with absolutely no luck at all. ASV has some nice stuff, but currently doesnt make any for the L. There really isnt anything that can be canned off of other bikes as the levers seem to be unique to the L (at least the brake lever is anyhow) You probably could find one for the clutch side on its own, but i didnt look into that as i didnt want to replace only one.

I considered just swapping out perches with something i could get shorter levers for, but in doing so you will lose the bar mounted choke & the brake light switch. You may be able to adapt a clutch perch with a hot-start lever to act as the choke if you want to retain it (i may end up going that route in the future) or move the choke to the triples in some manner. Replacing the brake perch would be more tricky to retain the brake light switch (if you care about it) or you could just watch ebay and grab a usable perch from someones parts pile. I havent come up with any brilliant ideas yet for that little problem. Neither of these options would necessarily be exactly cheap as the sky can be the limit on perch prices.

Short of the complete perch replacement, we both seem to be out of luck. If you stumble across anything, or come up with a better idea, i would love to hear about it!

I have had great luck with the ken sean folding mirrors.
Key is to run the ball joints dry so the wind doesn't spin 'em around.
You rotate them, and then fold them, one goes between the speedo and bar pad, the other between the key and the bar pad.

I customized my brake lever by dropping the bike and having the end curl forwards- its just like a shorty!

Thanks for the feedback

Well at least I feel that I'm not the only one that has looked everywhere for the shorty levers. I'll be sure to let you knoe if I come accross something.

I'll have to check into these mirrors.

HA! caught me... but don't worry officer
I was 3 feet from the truck, and not setting off for the day just yet.

..the fender, yeah - it came out pretty nice (CRF450), thanks for the compliment! Itís actually pretty solid too (doesnít flap around like itís not supposed to be there). I used the Baja designs LED for the brake light (nice and light). The whole project took a while to fab up... cut... measure...re-cut...etc, but it's pretty easy to do and much lighter too! Wouldnít recommend hauling too much gear on top though. I can post more pics later if you guys want.

Actually, I agree with you. It's a tad much on the angle. On the other hand, The pic kinda exaggerates the angle a bit... the bike looks real jacked up in the back. It isnít really that bad in person. LOL
Once i get around to it, I'm going to re-position the "angle of attack." Yeah, you can put it at any angle you want (within reason), itís an easy adjustment.
