Removable LED Turn Signals Motorcycle Installation Guide

CLICKnRIDE® Turn Signals are designed to fit almost any bike and meet all legal requirements. With premium quality parts the click-release system gets you going in seconds and provides peace of mind… on and off the road.

NOTE: Some bikes have limited options for locating the indicator sockets. If your bike doesn’t have enough plastic on the rear fender you can still use CLICKnRIDE® by adding a Bracket or Tail Tidy. Check out our Guide to Brackets & Tail Tidies here.

1. Install Socket


To ensure the socket is correctly installed on your bike, add/remove the included plastic spacers so the notch on the nut ends up flush with the top of the thread of the socket. If required, reduce the thickness of your bike’s plastics with hi-grit sandpaper or dremmel tool (work from the inside of the plastic).

To complete socket installation:
1. Align moisture guard, apply thread lock and screw nut on finger-tight.
2. Insert the light into the socket and holding light in the correct forward or rear facing position, hand-tighten the socket.

2a. Attach Wires


Join wires, Positive (red) to Active wire, then connect the Earth wire (black). Check with your motorbike manufacturer for wire diagram or a qualified motorcycle repairer.

TIP: Avoid cutting wires by using our Converter Harnesses that have OEM connectors at one end and CLICK’n’RIDE® connectors on the other end. LED’s are polarity dependant. If your turn signals don’t work after installing them as described try simply crossing the resistor’s red and black wires.

2b. Wire-in Resistors


If you are converting from incandescent globe turn signals to CLICK’n’RIDE® LED turn signals, wire-in CLICK’n’RIDE® resistors as shown (sold separately). Install 1 resistor for each LED turn signal until there is enough ‘load’ in the system to trigger the Flasher Unit. It is normal for the resistors to become hot to touch. Avoid placing them in contact with parts that may be effected by excess heat. Alternatively, replace your bike‘s Flasher Unit with an LED unit.

3. Click in and Test


Click your new turn signals into position and insert the rubber dust plug into the hole provided on the back of the turn signals. This stops the plug flapping in the wind and further secures the turn signals to the socket. Test your turn signals.

4. When off-road


For off-road use, remove the dust plugs from the back of the light, unclick your turn signals and stow. Ensure you reinsert the attached rubber dust plug into the socket whenever the turn signals have been removed to avoid moisture, mud or dust entering the socket.

Ride safe and enjoy.
