W650 Cafe Racer – Front indicator replacement
Today I started work on my Kawasaki W650 Cafe Racer project. One of the first parts I knew I wanted to replace on the bike were the lights, in particular, the indicators. The original indicators that come with the bike are oversized and just aren’t cool…
The best place for this is where the bolt attaches the indicator to the bike. Wrap an exposed section of the earth wire around the base of the indicator and hold it in place while you tighten the bolt (you may need to source some more wire to extend the earth wire to reach). Once you have tightened the nut make sure the supplied rubber housing is covering the nut and all the wiring then feed the excess wiring back into the headlight housing (it may be easier to do this if you remove the front of the headlight and pull them inside). Do a test and if everything is functioning properly you will end up with a much more attractive looking pair of indicators on the front of your bike. NOTE: I have mounted the indicators into the same holes that the original ones were using.
Only thing now is the headlight looks huge so it’s gonna have to go!
