Pablo has it all boxed up and ready to go, sent him the details for shipping yesterday, so fingers crossed should be in the next couple of weeks, Pablo probably relieved to shift it. Thanks Warren

Correct for UK spec. US bikes had the indicators fitted to the frame, and the grab rail didn't have the mounting ears.

Was told this was due to the amount of 'our' earlier bikes written off due to the indicator hitting the deck and bending the frame in an accident, hence moving the indicators to the grab rail....... or it could be a story I've just made up. :lol:

Either way you'll be pleased to know that your UK grab rail is much rarer and as such is worth MUCH more than the US type.

The reason they were on the grab rail it to meet the euro specs which defined how far apart the indicators should be.

And if your thinking of selling the grab rail, let me know, I'm after one. :wink:

Thanks
