Hi folks

Since I got my FT a couple of months ago I have spent endless hours trying to find out how people have fitted aftermarket indicators to their Scrambler on Google searches and forums.

Now I know there are posts on here, but none (that I've noticed) seem to mention how aftermarket indicators are fitted when the standard ones have a non-standard fitment. By this I mean it attaches in two places, one just the plastic plug, then the other the bolt.

Would someone please be kind enough to confirm how I fit aftermarket indicators, do I need an adapter of sorts of a just a standard thread of a particular size?

Barracuda sell an adapter, however they want 30 euros to ship to the UK which is rather steep, and doesn't even give a flush solution.

Really appreciate some guidance as I am dying to fit some smaller, LED indicators to the front and back. Obviously I don't want to go spend £x on new ones if they are wrong.

Thanks

I haven't changed mine yet, but already planned it out and done a test run. Basically you ignore the unusual extra OEM screw and use the hole for the holder and wire and slot the aftermarket ones through it and tighten the nut which comes with the aftermarket one. Depending on dia of your aftermarket one, you might need to enlarge the hole a bit.

Since you are good on the electrical part, so won't share pics about that. I've posted an eBay link to the Ducati OEM connector one needs to buy and the Scotchlink connectors to make a waterproof joint with aftermarket indicators wires in another thread here.

The brass bullet plug typically provided with the aftermarket ones will of course need to be chopped off. Hope I'm making sense.

Some pics:

Thanks for the in-depth info, I may take it all apart tomorrow and have a proper look. I just see photos where loads of people have done it and thought I was missing a trick!

All the best

Shift-Tech Undertray

Ended up biting the bullet and ordered a Shift-Tech undertray with integrated LED strip lights. Had my eye on them for a while but quite steep at over £120 shipped to the UK.

Should hopefully arrive next week :D

Those top two pictures do not look like the tail from of a Scrambler…the second one down shows a license plate holder…is this an aftermarket tail tidy? If so, who makes it? It looks interesting, and your pictures have just the right amount of detail. And another thing…where do you get access to all this cool information? Are you a spy? Is this one of those: "you could tell me…but then you'd have to kill me"? :) Just wondering...

@rogue hahaha you are funny. Thanks for appreciating the pics.

No secret here, @Stressfest is right - these are from the Scrambler service manual - an immensely useful document for those into DIY.

I just take screenshots of relevant sections and share here if it can help someone.

Just wondering what would be the Hollywood movie name if indeed I was such a spy - 'The spy who lubed me' ? :D

"The Spy Who Lubed Me"… that might be taken the wrong way, and end up as pornography! But it is catchy. I don't have the workshop manual…yet, but it's nice to know someone who does. It pays to have friends in high places…or is that high friends in places…I forget. :)

Just finished installing Rizoma Club L indicators on my Classic. Couple of remarks from the process

1. I installed back ones first with resistors (1 per light). All 4 started blinking too fast. When I did the front ones as well with resistors (1 per light) then the blink rate is ok.

2. On the back adaptor would have been good (Universal Indicator Lights by Rizoma Bikes Accessories -) solved it with a rubber spacer, other wise the light would be against the fender.

3. Cable kit would have helped (Universal Indicator Lights by Rizoma Bikes Accessories -) solved it by cutting of the plug from original and shouldering

4. The front ones can not be fitted in the original cable hole as the rizoma light bolt is too long and head light will be on the way to fix it. Instead I used the bolt hole of the original light, which had to be drilled bigger (8mm) for the rizoma to fit through.
