Hi Sky,


Are the bolts on the flashers 8 or 10 mm for the Africa Twin? I think I'm going to buy the LighTech LED teardrop signals. I've been holding of because I can't find any dimensions for them so far.


Thanks EZ

Hi Sky,


I think I'm going to order the LighTech Teardrop LED signal lights for
my AT. They're made in Italy and look like very high quality. The price
isn't too bad either. Two lights in a set for $67.00 U.S. $ total. The only
thing I'm not sure of are the dimensions.

The stock ones (incandescent) are M6, so take a 10mm spanner/socket.

The opening is quite large though, depending on the bolt size you can reuse some of the stock mounting hardware, or use blanking plates.

Anyone know where the indicator relay lives? I put LED indicators on using resistors at first. I've had a bunch of problems with the resistors so now I just want to do it right and swap the relay. Trouble is, I can't find it. The part diagram isn't especially helpful.

Is it one of the relays circled?

Ok, upon further investigation it appears that the turn signal relay is none of those. It seems to be located inside the rear black plastic housing on the right hand side. I'm not even sure I see a way to get in there without removing the majority of the rear end along with uprooting the entire wiring harness from the fuse boxes back.

I'm hoping I'm just overlooking the easy way to do this. Anyone do this swap yet?

I tried to look under the seat for the relay but I couldn't figure out a way of easily removing the black tray. It's not easy getting anything to move or pivot under the seat lock. Unless someone can figure out a better way or a bypass I feel like I'm stuck with these ginormous USA turn signals.......Ohhh the horror! LOL

Don't threaten me with a good time!

I ended up ordering a service manual from the UK. Here is the breakdown of how to get to the relay (I can post pics of the relevant manual pages if there is interest)

1. Drain and remove the gas tank
2. Remove the rear fender (as shown in the image I posted above)
3. Drain the brake lines and remove the ABS Modulator
4. Replace the Relay

Personally that's far too much work for me to do in this Texas heat. Probably just going to put my stock indicators back on and say to **** with it since I can't figure out the proper resistors to use.

Ok. So, I have ordered a set of Lightech LEDs and one of these units.
You suppose to only need one of these Load Stabilizers connected for both front and rear. And the best part,- you do not need to get to the relay to do the swap
Will update once installed.

Here is a good variety of Led signals.
If you want to use proper connectors, goto Eastern Beaver. He has the connectors and Jim owns an Africa Twin.
