    Hi I've recently got a 2015 crossrunner & the front indicators are lit permanently with the headlamp like daytime riding lights is this correct & does anyone know if its possible to turn them off.
    Thanks

    They are ON with the ignition on, it's designed that way for added conspicuity.

    Thanks for the reply I just don't like having an orange light on at the front as I think other motorists could perceive that as an indicator

    European regulations, I think. Probably best to leave them.  :028:

    The indicators flash a lot brighter when on no chance of the DRL daytime running lights being mistaken for indicators imho.

    Don't worry they're both on so if they do get mistaken for an indicator then hopefully others will give way as they won't have a clue where you're going. Besides, using indicators just gives the "enemy" an advantage  :016:

    Bought the bike with this screen.
    I can ride in the rain with my visor open without getting wet.
