    Hi all ,

    I'm looking for a response hopefully from someone who knows their way around a transalp.

    i bought a 700 and the chap before me had fitted a daft exhaust that pointed straight at the indicator. After my first ride out on it I was left with 3 indicators and something else resembling a dali painting...

    Anyway, I have sourced a new one, but the bolt from the old one is still in the bike and doesn't appear to have a head to unscrew it (Pic attached , i hope)

    probs a simple question for this website, but how do I go about removing it? do I need to get at it from the other side? underneath the plastic panel?

    cheers

    Don't know the transalp but most indicators on bikes have a hollow bolt where the wires are and a retaining nut on the inside your one ether has two nuts or a very thick location pin normally with a bit of cussing and dislocation of your fingers you can get to them with the seat removed, but on most bikes the rear plastics are quite easy to remove
