Suzuki GT750 Indicators

Had a bit of a problem where I had custom fork ears and wanted to the original style 'B' indicators on, the size of the square would have removed too much metal and weakened the fork ears where they are narrower than the standard ones.

Can also use this if you do not have the standard 'B' fork ears, which in good condition are hard to come by, but can use the earlier type with the 10mm hole instead of a square which are seen more frequently.

These are a pattern set of indicators bought off e-bay for about £20 each, not sure where my originals went.

The length of thread in the hole needed to be increased bit, 5 - 8 mm should be sufficient.

The Thread is M10 x 1.25mm

The machined end needs to painted to prevent rusting.

I also used thread lock for the studding as the studding can come loose and the indicators will rotate then.
