Givi indicator relocation bracket?

Post  Speed Dealer on Sun 04 May 2014, 12:19 am

I bought some panniers second hand, but they didn't come with a bracket to relocate my indicators, so now the indicators are squashed and sit behind the crossbrace. Does anyone know where I can buy a bracket? I know I could make one, but I like the 'factory' look.

Sometimes the factory doesn't get it quiet right, the bracket and it's mounting location are not the best things to come out of Givi IMHO.




I think the bracket is a bit too thin and that it has too much flexability allowing the indicators to bounce more than normal.  The location of the indicators looks dorky as well, in fact I'm considering removing them all together as I've wired the panniers and top box with LED indicators and tail/stop lights.

Kewig got himself a set of Suzuki pannier mounts (slightly different to the Givi PL539), these have the indicators relocated further apart and in a better position.



Good luck in sourcing a bracket, however if you want to keep with the (Givi) factory this bracket would not be too difficult to make up yourself.

I'll have a look around the shed. I hated it so it's floating around somewhere. If I find it it's yours

I may mount some mini LED indicators on the bracket if vibration is too much of a problem.

I chose to make my own bracket from a piece of scrap steel. The total project cost was a total of $2.00 for the paint (and a few hours of drying time).

I mounted the bracket behind the license plate light assembly using the existing screws.

I drilled two holes in the license plate assemble to thread the indicator wires straight through to the tail thingy on the bike which also did not require me to do any wiring changes as the wires were long enough.

Here are a couple of fairly poor quality photos which may assist.





Do you see any potential for me becoming a professional photographer ? - maybe not  Very Happy  Very Happy

BTW all of the dirty bits in the photos are in fact dirt from riding in the rain  Very Happy  Very Happy

I just took givi bracket off mine as I thought it was the ugly as all hell. Just in my opinion and relocated them my self and looks a lot better and cleaner. If you are close you can have the bracket?

Bracket has been posted. Good luck with the install is pretty straight forward, the worst bit is relocating the indicator wires

Run them under the taillight lens, not through the old indicator holes.  They will fit without cutting or lengthening

Thanks very much to Reddog for posting me the bracket at his own cost. I've put it on the bike and drilled a couple small holes under the rear reflectors to run the wires through. At the rate I'm racking up Km on this bike (averaging 1000km/week), a couple small holes in the fender won't reduce it's resale value  tongue

The Bandit is meant for mile munching. Drilling holes is a better idea than running the wires between the under tray and rear plastics
