    I used an Evotech one on my 2012, just to be different to the R&G mob...
    Can't remember how much, but worth every penny, full instructions, full fitting kit, various bits to allow different fitting options...
    But word of caution with the cheap ones, I bought a cheap one on EBay for my DRZ, nightmare to fit, no fitting kit, had to make brackets and drill body work, had to guess which wires did what, you have to stare at the tail light to tell if I'm braking or not oh and if I indicate the the tail light goes dim bright dim bright too!! Cheap crap... (Could be my installation too though lol)

    Jack, would be worth PMing Conquest Carbon too, (he is member of this forum, his names Steve) I don't remember seeing tail tidy's on his site but he may have them or be able to get them, I've had stuff from there (more on order too) and it's fantastic quality with a discount for forum members too :upyeah:

    Did someone mention bacon rolls???? Ill pop round too!! :upyeah:

    Guys, before you strip the old big ass off the bike, measure the position of the new for two reasons...
    If you have high level twin cans

    1) the OE indicators will be too big
    2) your uk road legal reg plate will be too big

    Both good things to change but plan ahead....
    If you end up going for smaller LED indicators as I did you will need an LED flasher Relay, or resistors otherwise they will flash quicker than a flashy thing and not be road legal...
    Triumph do the relay as a simple in plug the old and plug the new in but it's about 25 notes, cheap resistors on fleebay but you get what you pay for....
    Just a thought guys, ill pop a picture of mine on tonight

    Jim thanks for that but it's cool...
    Led indicators already fitted and he has a small one as well.......


    Number plate that is......

    But it's handy to know as I'll Be ripping mine off in the near future.... Best order a smaller number plate then..:upyeah:

    I needed to make a few small adjustments as I did not want to use the supplied wings for fixing the indicators to...
    It would have been easier but easier is not always better...
