R1 Mods

Discussion in 'Modifications and Projects' started by AshR1, Oct 10, 2008.

  1. Hey guys,

    have the 07 R1, I've been thinking about this one for a while (the mod not bike, well bike too)

    Putting orange globes for the indictors next to the "park lights" in the outside of the headlight assembly.

    only question I have is on the legality (the electronics etc shouldn't be an issue) but moving the indicators up that much higher from stock, are there any rules on that? they are still about the same distance appart and imagine that when they light up will throw as far wide as the current ones, just help tidy up the front :)
  2. First stop will be the information sheets on viroads. Theres some great info on all the state sites specifically to help us with this kind of thing.

    Essentially the lamps must not be less than 300mm apart, and must be between 350mm and 1.5m above the ground. If your bike happens to be manufactured before 1975 [which yours isnt] then they are not compulsory at all.

    Cheers - boingk
