    My new long stem indicators have turned up but they only have one wire on them..
    how does that work then as I thought that you needed two or three wires...

    They will earth through the body onto say steel headlight clamps ect ect the single wire is the power feed.
    or it has been known that some folk have put a earth wire to the mounting

    Wild guess coming up....

    The one wire is a live & the body of the indicator acts as an earth?
    Take that with a huge pinch of salt though Duck.
    My electrical skills are more likely to get you a blown fuse than working indicators! o_O

    Ah, Don beat me too it & amazingly my guess could be correct :grinning:

    Good guess DD I have seen many like this from old problems only occur when they stop using metal and have plastic everywhere so your are limited.

    I just banged em on and hoped for the best and they worked...
    Make my indicating intentions super visible ,well pleased..
    No one better pull out on me or crash into me or I'm going to be well miffed...unless it's one of them sexy blonde swedish birds with ample thrupenny bits dressed in lederhosen with a load of them huge beersteins that wants to perform a new technique of CPR on me :p

    As a bonus I replaced the wires that had snapped going to my horn and done a bang up professional job..I've really amazed myself ;)

    I will do mate..:p:joy::joy::joy:
    Those two wires were just quarter inch stubs so soldered two brand new bits of wire on and then banged heat shrink stuff on and new spade clips and covers and have totally shocked myself...
    If only I could do everything so well...:)
