After much messing around, and indecision, my indicators are now finished.

Dropping the back wheel out wasn't as painful as I had thought, but getting the rear light cluster off was a pain. Those bolts really were in there (Torx 30 if you are going to do this)

I tried everywhere to get black anodised M8 Nuts, but had to manage with the standard silver finish.

Overall I'm pleased, but I will swap the nuts for black when I can find some...

Nuts..

With only a single nut on the indicator stem I was not able to get the indicator to point in the right direction when tightened fully.

The addition of a second nut allows me to get the indicator pointing in the right direction and nice and tight.

If anyone knows where I can get a flanged (The flange looks nice) black anodised M8 nut please let me know :)

Thanks

Suzanne.

Those lights are a tidy solution. Looks good! Hate torx lol; it seems inevitable that I strip them. Can't offer any help with the black anodized nut. Boltmaster do an M8 hexnut in black; not anodized though. A temporary solution I've used in the past that has worked surprisingly well is to paint on black nail polish.

You can spray paint the nuts or have them powder coated, simple job!
Thanks - Great Idea. I had no idea how hard it would be to find black nuts.

There were some on Ebay, but mostly in China and lots of dodgy feedback. I found some in the UK, at a ridiculous price per nut.

Nail Varnish or Paint could be the answer :)

Thanks.

Whatever you use or choose to buy, always tape them with masking tape when you install. Sucks to ruin a finish with your wrench. Just remove the tape once you have them snug.

@Suzanne

I told him that at the other end of the world there were also happy dogs.
so this idiot I like has decided to read all the magazines that explain how to go to Australia.
When I told him that he would have to spend more than 12 hours in a cage before running with his new friend .. he collapsed.
