    LED, all of your lights are LED except the number plate light which has a normal filament bulb. :028:

    Excellent idea but don't forget to disengage it at MOT test as I believe they are a failure on the test

    I don't think there will be an issue out on the road , but unless you have a tame MOT technician you might have issues on the annual test just trying to give you a heads up

    Sorry I am not trying to be a killjoy as I think it's an excellent idea but this subject has been discussed at length on another manufacturers forum and it all came down to the MOT rules

    Keep safe

    PS I have an issue with a reg plate on my GS with the DOT , I won't bore you with the regs and legalities but I just re attach a modern two lined plate on for MOT and then replace it with the older 3 lined plate post mot
    I can't be arsed arguing with jobs worthy who can't understand the legalities of vehicle and licensing regs
    Life is too short

    in NI where i am, i go in with the bike and operate the lights, horn, brakes on the rollers. the fella just  checks bushes and tyres and visual stuff.
     but i am a but fussy , ill prob have a connector to quick change for mot and if the police have a roadside issue with it. some new ducati i seen out has it standard, so that will be questionable.
    i think caus it shows solid to begin with, it should be allowed.

    all taken on board, advice is never an issue. thankyou.

    Because they are:

    a) not legal in the UK
    b) not normally seen in the UK

    ...I'd have thought you stood more chance of being rear-ended as idiot cage drivers stare at this pulsing light, wonder wtf it means and forget to brake.

    JMHO.

    neighbour has a ducati and its on it from factory, but it can be switched on or off it on the dash.

     orange indicators as marker lights has come in to uk and it seems to be everywhere yet iv never heard of legislation changing, seems if the manufacturer does it, its ok.
     
    iv seen a bike with it on it at a bike safe with police and it was discussed and he still went ahead on the training.

    i think that it ends up a solid light at the end of the 2 sec sequence it should be fine. still shows solid red by the time your stopped.
    and cyclists use flashing lights to be seen, yet the law in uk says they should be a solid white and red light.

    small differences.

    im gonna chance it for now. 

    freedom of choice to buy it,
    im just showing it.
    if i cared about being judged by a stranger, i'd be religious.
