Extending indicator wires.
« on: March 15, 2012, 09:18:36 PM »
Well I have fitted the PL539 racks to go with the top box frame.  Ready for a 10 day Euro trip in July.

All is good except the rear indicators  The wires are just too short to reach the original connectors.  Did any of you guys route the cables differently?  Or make up extender wires?  The connectors are not the bullet type or it would have been simple to knock up a set of extenders.

Really really dont want to snip the original wires!!!  :bot:

Well after 3 months enforced absence from the bikes and having a metal plate screwed to my forearm & wrist and then removed.......I managed to get in 100 miles on the bike today!  First ride in ages but luckily the GSX is proper comfortable!

Fitted the E21's to see if they made any difference to the ride, apart from clobbering them with my boot - none  :laughing7:



From the back



I ran the indicator wired through under the rear light - no snipping or bodging



Very happy with them  :icon_thumright:

Isn't that the left indicator wire crossing in front of the reflector? It will come out of the other side quite easily. Mine does.

On a 1250 yes  :nod:  but 650 no   :no-nod:  ... I had exactly the same problem.  The standard length of wire on the 650 is too short   :BangHead:

Would it be that difficult to cut and splice a bit in to make it longer?  :dontknow:

It's definately too short to run it any other way.  Coupled to the fact there is an Alarm sitting in the rear cowling making it a pain to connect and disconnect the wiring then - what i've done will suffice!  I am not going to cut any of the wiring as I wanted it to be able to go back to standard without anything being noticeable.

So to combat the issue you had, I picked up the tail light in this link.  I've been running it for a year now. It works great and I think it dressed up the bike some too.  Hopefully this helps some.
