  • TLS flush mount signals?

    Has anyone used these LP flush mount V signals? I'm thinking of getting some, but I'm paranoid about the double-sided tape installation. Any pictures of these mounted on bikes?

    By the way, thanks to everyone who advised me on my fuel pump gasket repair. The bike is back together with no leaks at all!

    Those are nice I wonder if they cover the holes in the ferring (sp)?. What did you do to stop the fuel pump from leaking mine is starting to leak a little

          Stabber, check out this thread linked below. I bought the newer version of the gasket from ronayers.com (it's #12 in the diagram in the link). I put a very thin layer of permatex #2 gasket sealer around it, slapped it together, and its working really well so far. You have to tighten the bolts in a very specific star-shaped pattern (as described in the shop manual) to get it to seal up nicely.

            Wow, those flush mount Vs are a lot smaller than I thought. I may decide against them in favor of the bigger LP flushmounts (the older version, whatever the numeral is). Thanks for the pics and info guys.

              They aren't big enough to cover the front, don't try it.

              Replacement tape is cheap and I ride at least three times a week in the rain coming home at night (and they've been on since August with no problem)...

              On the outside - TLR forks, front carbon fender, 5/8th master brake cylinder, black SS brake lines (frnt & rear), braking waves all around with Ti bolts, Brembo gold front calipers & a busa gold rear caliper, flush mount signals (frnt & rear), ZG DB scr

                  The stock Suzuki indicators work pretty well. Better than any Taiwanese junk Lockhart sells, that's for sure...

                  BTW, if you're ever using double-sided tape, 3M's VHB (very high bond) tape is awesome. You have to light a bomb under it to get it to come loose!
                  It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a bad example.

                      lasse, I had to shave down a little on the back (but I did it in such a way that I could put the stockers back on if I really had too) and I didn't touch anything on the front...

                      A cordless dremel is a great tool to work with

                          Thanks, I'm happy with the way they turned out....

                          If you do get any cordless tools, just keep em fully charged....

                              bx-459, Do you remember what size you bought from LP? Apparently, these flush mount IVs come in sizes mini, small, medium, and large. I assume you bought either the small or the medium (looks like small to me). Just want to make sure before I order. Thanks for the pic.
