My Jubilee has 12V. Has anyone fitted indicators too the deluxe model. Dont feel safe giving hand signals, all these boy racers havent a clue what hand signal are.
If you want to go for something that does not look out of place you could go for the Electra setup.
Look for BAR END INDICATORS
He does a complete kit.
I have the original handlebars. Will I have to drill the bar.
If you don’t want to drill the bars then I’d recommend a discrete LED setup, that’s what I intend to fit to my Navigator when I get around to it!
Ive seen some indicators that are headlight fixing. Remove the headlight fixings and pass the the threaded ends of the indicators through the forks and into the headlight, you can then tighten the indicator and headlight. The rear indicators can then be fixed to the rear panel.
Has anyone fixed these to a Duluxe.
Fitted indicators to a 99 DL and a late Atlas. Normal tungsten on 99 and LED on the Atlas with multifunction bar switch. Both systems work ok. the led bulbs are probably more reliable,but the positive earth made things a bit more confusing to wire up. (I am easily confused by electrics.).
John Dunn asked 'do I have to drill the bars?' Thinking along Electra lines which had bar end winkers. But not drilled to my knowledge. I very much doubt you will find the original bar end winkers. But I do have a set that fitted the ends of a 'badge' bar. It turns out they screw into a threaded 'mount' in the end of the bar but there will be a small hole in the bar to pass the wires into the Handlebar. Then of course you can't fit a bar end mirror, nor can you chuck the bike by its handle bars against a wall! I didn't fit such indicators!
Pattern Electra indicators have been produced, But like AO I am not a fan, for the same reasons.
I like the idea of indicators that can be fixed either side of the headlight. The fixings can then be passed through the headlight fixing holes and wiring taken into the headlight, the back indicators passed through the Deluxe fairing. The indicator fixing would have to be strong enough to support the headlight.
Some suppliers do chrome and black plastic.The plastic body could be painted same color as the headlight
