Vehicle Wiring Products do a kit but I haven't used one myself. In general, their products are good quality. They also do all the components.

Hi Dennis,
As Ian has said, Vehicle Wiring Products do the Indictor kits. I fitted one to my bike and was very satisfied with it. They also send a catalogue of their products which has lots of goodies in it. I have a copy of a wiring diagram should you need it.

Hi Dennis,
I found it quite straight forward. And I’m the kind of person that if there’s a hole, I will fall into it.
I fitted the little flasher unit inside of the head light shell, on an existing clip and I was able to replace the existing bolts that held the head light in place, with the new flasher light. They replaced the existing bolts just right.
I like you never felt safe using hand signals when driving. I don’t think young drivers have any idea what I was trying to do. And modern traffic is traveling so much faster than my old bike.
JOHN

I've had oncoming drivers wave back to me as I'm signalling a turn! Yikes!

All good advice apart from keeping well to the left, now RoSpa and IAM advice is to keep to the center of your lane.
