Swapping front indicators on the XRT
on: April 16, 2021, 07:02:07 PM
Having recently dropped my bike in a garage forecourt I have damaged the right indicator and had to buy a new one. Now that I have it I thought it would be simple job of unbolting the old, connecting the new and bolting it back in. However the cable runs off under the headlight and disappears. How much of the bike do I need to take apart to get to it?

Thanks in advance

Not much. There's a short tail on the wiring then a multi plug. Have a look up through the underside of the front beak and you might even see it. Can't remember exactly which inner panels to remove but it's an easy job.

I took another look and did the indicator today. I ended up taking off the screen, wind-deflectors, and loosening the headlight so I could get to the cable clamps. Simple in theory, but short of space in reality. All done now though. It was a good opportunity to clean up the see-through shields!!
