Jesse, do the eurospec BMW LED's indicators have any flex to them? or are they as rigid as the NA stockers?

Has anyone modified the blinkers to have some flex so they're better at handling impacts?

No they are rigid. my back ones are protected but the fronts are just waiting to get knoocked off. Would have been nice if the didnt make the tip so long as well.

Go to your local hardware store and look for kitchen cabinet door handles. You'll find them there.

sorry mate but I don't believe you. mine broke and at $75 not cheap either.

As for being standard to the bike is determined entirely as to which market/country the bike is sold in. Australia for instance only got the LED.

Just an FYI, I have ADV-Spec crash bars and my bike has been down many times, a few times were pretty hard, and never any damage to turn signals.

Something to think about if you are considering which bars to get.

Question

whitham_wannabe, show us how you attached your RotoPax fuel container please.

Is it on the Jesse top plate?
Do you have the quick-release or just the standard plate?

Thanks!
