Gipro gear indicator mount by Healtech. Available in aluminum or black. Ordered black but it was out of stock at the moment so i opted for the polished one instead of waiting.

- New tail light and indicators from Japan, rears came with an extension harness and OEM connectors, bolt-on or plug and play install.

- Fork boots. Cut the boots down the middle of the seam...glued them with flexible gel super glue...turned out great!!!

Next...black out the top of the fork tubes with vinyl, then install the matching front indicators.

Wow, it's been a busy week with the Rebel:

- Fork boots
- Blacked out the fork tubes
- Matching front "Daytona" indicators
- Hella Horn replacement, got a set of Hella horns, installed the 480hz over the 380hz which is ALLLLLOT louder than stock...sounds like a car proper car horn now.

- Reused the metal strip-shaped bracket from the OEM horn, plugs in without trimming any plastic.
- Cut 2 pieces of black vinyl, 19cm x 13.5cm, had to trim off 1mm making it 18.9cm x 13.5cm (may vary depending how your fork is installed). The sides will overlap a bit, positioned it so the overlap occurs on the inside of the fork tube, out of plain sight.

Iíve been contemplating for a while fitting A Hella or Sound bomb, but I donít want to get chased or shot at.
A few blips of the throttle usually does the trick without repercussions here, but would be less satisfying than a loud burst on the horn.

That Hella horn is such an easy mod that is bolt-on and reversible within minutes.
