  • Some arsehole pushed over my pride and joy :(

    hey everyone

    this arvo i had my bike parked out the front of my GF's place as i always do and well i went outside to get some stuff out of my bike bag and well what do you know some arsehole has pushed over my bike. as you could imagine i am quite ****ed off about it.

    luckily there wasnt much damage im astonished at how sturdy the katana is,
    all that broke was my front right hand indicator my screen my right pillion foot peg, and lastly i got some pretty decent gouging on the bottom of my fairing where the crankcase is.

    my question is has anyone and does anyone know where i can get some slimline indicators a new screen and some new pillion pegs, i have had a look on ebay and i cant really find anything suitable.

    im open to suggestions and im taking this as an oppourtunity to get some new trick parts for my kat

    thanks everyone

    most after market turn signnals are LED and will require a little extra modding to install including a flasher mod to operate at normal flash rate

      hey rexazz2 i found this screen off of your link was near the bottom

      http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/170504079...fvi%3D1&_rdc=1

      thanks for that

      I was also thinking of getting a set of these or similar indicators would prefer a little bit bigger ones though so they would completely cover the hole in the fairings, also what exatly would i have to do to the flasher so i can run leds would i just get a different flasher can or mod the whole system?

        not sure what year your riding, looks like a pre

        if you switch to a LED type it doesnt create enough of a load for the flasher to work properly

        here are some posts that will help you

          I just bought these for the fron turn signals on my bike. They covered the holes in the fairings well. They aren't LED so no modification is required you just wire them up and go, but I'm not sure if you were considering turn signals that weren't LED.

          Edit: Sorry, didn't see you were in Australia. Not sure if MS would ship there or not.

            i actually have a pair of pillion foot pegs if you still need them. i switched all my pegs to a more race style a little while ago so i have both driver and pass (pillion) pegs. i'll give em to ya if you pay for shipping

            just to be sure that you have a pre (88/89-97) kat right? i think they all take the same pegs, pre and post, but mine are from my 89 750.

                  These kind of threads pop up all the time and I just dont get it.

                  Who the **** walks by a bike and thinks "I'm gonna push it over"
                  90% of motorcycle forum members do not have a service manual for their bike.

                    Scotty if i find out who the mother ****er is that did it ill let you know.

                    But so far from viewing neighbours security cams it appears to be some guy riding a push bike that thought hey you know what that bike would look way better laying on its side.
