something about engineers
the engineers at my work don't do jack ***** but design...they won't pick up a tool, connect anything or nothing. They come to me and make me do it because I am the technician.
The president of my company is the worst at it....yeah he is a hell of an engineer but it's like he can't hook anything up by himself! He got me friday to build two racks for him, and the bad one was I was busy with something, he called me into his office -asked me to bring a screw driver and to put the rack ears on 3 network switches. he couldn't do that!

I work for the government, if we picked up a tool, it would lead to a lot of beaucratic bullsh*t. IBEW or another union would file greivances against me.

Oh Jtemple, it won't come with the same connection that is on the SV indicators right now. You can either use single wires like I did and rig them to the connections or buy an actual connection conversion. The fronts use a wye connection and the backs use a real small square connection...
Where can I get the conversions? I'd prefer making the hookup as neat as possible, and not cut into any of my wiring.

I understand that stuff. I was a weapons computer tech in the Navy for 6 years, and now have my Computer Engineering degree.

you need the single filament and the dual filament I think. I think the dual filament is the wye connection in the front. I have heard that you have to pull a wire and rework how it is connected to get it to work properly because it uses a dual filament connector, but is only a single filament design.

hello

Hello I just got a 2005 SV650. I want to get rid of those front signals and get something smaller. Short stalk, but what size is the screw hole? Does it matter? So I know what size to get, or if you guys can direct me to a site that sells them that would be great. thanks

signals

Hello I got a 2005 SV650. I'm getting a fender elim. but I really want to get rid of those huge orange front signals. What size bolt is holding those on? Or can I use any type of short stalk blinkers? If you guys can help or give me a site that would be awesome.

Thanks

I won't be much help in the turnsignal department. I kept the stock ones on mine, and now it's for sale.

I have no idea for the naked version, the bolt hole on the S version wasn't a bolt hole. You had to buy spacers to get it to work right.

If you liked the stock stalks, it wouldn't be too hard to gut them and put LEDs inside.

Nice pics, but couldn't you have waited until it was completely dark... Those pics are almost ruined because you had some light... You can almost see that bike...

Ok, sarcasm aside... I think it's time for some new pics...

Hey SV Rider

How do you like that F/E? That's the one I was going to get.

It's not bad... Then I haven't seen any others in person on a SV.
I like the flush signals, and how smooth everything flows, but I'm still not completly sold on where they place the plate. It's really tucked behind the wheel, not sure how much the po po's are gonna like that.

All in all, 110% better than stock, but I may look at a hamicad if I get another SV, just rig up some flush mount signals with it.

Need help on the connection between LED and bike (rubber OEM portion)

I returned those. I picked up some regular ones for $15. They look better and are brighter. The best part is I got a lot longer stalk for the rear and a short stalk for the front. Bad news is I couldn't find a good indicator adapter plate to make it look good, so I couldn't mount the fronts tonight. They are going to look sweet though. Here are some pics of just the front indicator in my house. It was too dark to take pics with my camera phone tonight when I got done putting the rears on.



Can I get a little help on this. I am being forced to replace my front blinkers (high-side) on my 02 SV650S. I ended up damaging the rubber part that 'held' the OEM blinker that extended out of the fairing and seated the blinker. I ordered the LED lights online and now am not sure how I can attach them to my bike.

I'm new to bike mechanics so explicit details will be greatly appreciated!
