Looking for some rubber mounted indicators. UK based. Anyone know of some?

One of the most flexible signals I've found were those used on the rear of the Buell Ulysses. Not overly large, but not tiny and the stalk, short as it is, is very flexible. I put a set on my KLX650 and also on my ZR550 Zephyr. Common bulb in it too. The signal is Italian. The other reason I used them was reliability and price. I had two sets of cheap small signals work like crap, failing due to cheap parts and assemblies. Then I learned of the Buell signals after bending and breaking my KLX signals. Only $15.99 usd over here, so a set of four is about $64.00. No more failure due to cheesy junk parts. I did have to cut short pig tails from my OEM signals to solder on the Buell signals to fit the connectors - but worth it.

The set on the right are the rear signals.


You do need to add an automotive no load relay, less than $10. Again bulbs are common and available at auto parts stores and very flexible stalks. If you can still get a set.


Then there was RockabillSlapMatt's signals using plug in LED truck clearance lights - click here. I have a set of four in the garage to do this with the 250.

Here's the set stuck in the rear fender of his bike post-09.


and in the hand guards



Another rider did some LED stick on strips in that same thread.

These are highly regarded. US-based though....
