the Facebook pictures are pretty clear on where the turn signals are not with the fairing blanks.  Bigsmile

Ya, when they got em parked outside it clearly shows them with turn signal mirrors. Bummer. I see there is some sort of blank space where they "should be". Guess I'll be lookin into makin the switch.

Then again, I look at the photos of the bike that our dealers are supposedly offering and I see the good look. the only look, in the fairing. Weird.

The blank part is actually just a standard clear lens painted over grey - fully function inside...just get a new lens

Fully functional? The lights are under there? I did find a thread from one guy that took the blanks out, used alcohol to remove the paint and auto parts to put in signals. What a PAIN! Apparently the whole thing happened because some desk jockey somewhere decided that the spacing between the signals wasn't wide enough. Crazy
Thus those totally gross mirrors. Funny cause I look at my F800 signals and they can't be much wider than the fairing mounts. I do like my f8 mirrors and prolly will grab a pair to throw on the bike. PITA!!!

oh quit complaining.... it's a cheap and easy fix.  Lol


The hollow stem mirrors with signal wires are supposed to be shakers anyway, the "kit" uses some Aprilia's mirrors and the Euro TS lenses.

Still waiting to see what the first Canadian models show up like. Interestingly, I Googled the Aprillia Tuono mirrors and it turns out that is the exact mirror on my F8. Wonder who the actual maker is?

probably the same as the 1200 Dorsoduro, Ducati Monster, etc etc etc.

The Ducati stuff is totally different than what Toadride is talking about (no turn signal lights).  They first showed up on the 2006 Tuono (in 2005).  I think that predates the twin F800 by a couple years.  And they're made in Italy, mine say "something not legible SPA".

Very purposeful looking. What are those tires, they seem more aggressive looking than usual stock?

Congrats and enjoy !!  Bigok Bigok

Just found out mine is not showing up here till the 19th. Which is probably a good thing because I still have not sold the F8. Smile

Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming Wow What a Ride HST
