I have finally got my FT and have official OEM LED indicators if anyone is interested in what they look like.

Although the new configurator web site now lets you see them I really struggled to find decent pictures before ordering mine so I thought I would add some pics for others.

I also have a comfort seat and will post pictures of that as well.

I have already posted a lot of pictures of these on another thread, search for Genuine Ducati LED turn signals by JaFlo. I have uploaded a couple of examples here as well.

I will start a new thread with pictures of the comfort seat.

Changed mine to rizoma action instead.

Sid from Iceage! I see where you are coming from but I like it :eagerness:, I think you have just given my bike its first nickname!

Definitely suggests a bit of personality, somewhere between ditsy kids character and Sidney James with one of the best laughs in comedy, I'll call it Sid going forwards, it's official :downtown:

I like the rizomas as well, looks pretty slick, assume you have them front and back. Did you have to lift the tank and did you need to add resistors to maintain flash rate?

The small indicators from Rizoma are perfect for the scrambler and if you do fit led indicators there's no need for resistors.
As for calling your bike Sid just think about the evil kid in toy story...lol

Haha nooo, don't kill Sid! Haha!
No need for resistors. Think it's already built in the scrambler? Yeah I lifted the tank I bit. Was thinking of disconnecting the plug and install it on the rizoma, but it was to tight under there. Then I just chopped the wires and heat sinked it. Much easier.

I only did it on the front. For the rear, I was thinking to change the brake light to mugello's rear brake light with indicators. LED strip design.

Thanks

Finally got the rear led lights installed with indicators! Easy to install and fits perfectly between the gap of the old rear light!

Question. I am replacing the OEM indicators with after-market indicators (not Rizoma). My question goes to the wire connectors. Do I have to lift the tank to actually access the wire connectors? (I prefer not to cut and splice.) The various forum threads make it sound like the big issue is determining the best way to fasten the indicators, but the big issue for me is accessing the connectors. What am I missing? Is there an easier way? or do I just need to man up and lift the tank?

Yes, from mugello. It's basically a bracket that holds the led strip. Don't know the quality Of the strip but I reckon it's the China stuff with glue on the backside. Lights up quite strong and turn signal is good. No problem with the visibility. The bracket holds the strip in place so you don't need to glue anything. Good quality. I'm thinking of plasti dip the strip all black, don't like the look of the diods when the bike is off.

Im not home for the next few weeks, so I can't take any pictures. I will make a video when the build is finished ;)

Yes, you have to lift the tank to have enough room. The whole tank.[/QUOTE
Thanks. So based on what I've read in other threads (bear with me here).... if I lift the tank, I'm asking for trouble because you have to disconnect the fuel line and some other stuff, and reattaching could yield a busted fuel line connection if not done perfect. BUT it seems a lot of people change out their signals without one mention of tank removal or any difficulty with anything.

So, is it (I hope it's "b."):
a. Yes, it's tricky. Don't do it unless you know what the hell you're doing.
b. You really only need to lift the tank part-way, in order to reach the front signal connectors. And, if that's all your'e trying to do (disconnect OEM signal wire and connect replacement signal's wire) you only need to lift the tank a portion just to make room to reach the wire connections. There should be no need to disconnect the fuel line and other stuff.
c. Scratch all that. Just cut the OEM signal wire, and splice in your new signal wire.
d. Grow a pair and just lift the tank already.

Advance thanks for any responses.

I couldn't get to the signal. Lifted the part way but hadn't enough patient that day. I tried, but it wasn't easy. And then it came up to me, I didn't even had the oem connectors so why bother. Then I just cut it. Wanted to ride that day.
