    I recon they look better than the Drag Spec ones as well.  Lower profile and better style.

    Wow, they must be non existent, mine are 25mm wide, by 12.5 mm thick by 12.5 mm deep. Not sure you can get more compact than that. Style is exactly the same! 
    Have a look at the browns industries website on face book  much better pics 
    Of them     Thay look  a lot more slim line  than the drag spec ones 
    I would say I’m in favour of them if I was to purchase them
    Thay fit a lot more closer to the hand control by the looks of them

    Got mine fitted on Wednesday , very tidy unit HD mechanic said good quality .
    On the ride home the dash blinker lights were flashing very quickly , thought maybe I need a load equaliser to fix the blinkers but when I had a look at the actual blinkers they were flashing normal , I have a Chopz eliminator on the rear with the LED lights in it also
    So I suppose all good .

    Hey mate,  

    So the front are very simple just a cute and re wire kinda job,

    As stated few bikes ill say 10% of what i have done, need a load equalizer but 90% have been sweet! 

    Rear i would suggest a tail tidy we have browns set up alot cheaper than a chop Z

    Ordered a set of the under LED indicators  (damn fast hand delivery  I must say  bet no one has had that luxury) but to get to the point I don't know if its because I have put them on or I had a problem I never knew of, I have an 01 heritage springer and recently converted to the 3 in 1 rear indicator  and that worked fine  now  if I turn my right indicator on  my right rear brake flashes in place of the indicator left side is fine  and it didn't need resistors on them but rear did anyone heard or know of such a problem?

    Hey mate and cheers!

    Im no auto electrician but the front shouldn't impact the rear. few Ideas

    1. Load equalizer 
    2. wires touching or not soldered right
    3. Wires pinching on something

    did you touch anything on the back ?  

    Feel free to msg me on fb or IG so we can chat and see what the problem is cheers

    Hey Ricca can you let me know your details so I can get some indicators from you guys. Also some instruction on how to fit them and what I might need if they don't work properly. I am thinking load equaliser although my bike should have one for the rears but who knows. Cheers potluk

    hey Mate,

    you dont need to no,

    Just cut it so their is enough to join the 2 together and solder it together, i always leave just enough incase i screw up and need to re cut ha,

    Then remember to put the heat shrink on before joining the wire :)

    I installed as follows.....
    cut the existing two core cables close to the existing indicators. Soldered the ends to the ends of the new indicator cables and shrunk heat shrink over the join. Sprayed a bit of WD40 in to the bars via the cable access slot near the grips, located the cables under the headlight and carefully pulled the cables back down the handlebars, effectively using the existing cables as a draw wire. Then I had two options:

    1. Make the solder joint in the headlight housing with individual heat shrink around each joint and one overall the entire area. 

    2. Buy the 2 x $5 connectors and pins and do the job properly without cutting and joining. The connectors are easy to get to if you prop the tank up. 

    I used option 2 but considered option 1 during the install.

    Cutting and joining the old cable close to the new indicators will look shit if you cannot pull the joint back in to the bars in my opinion.

    (PS. Rehabilitating the old indicators is easy enough using the existing cable you cut, here is a YouTube video detailing it https://youtu.be/VmK1USM-ZuY)

    Good luck.
