So, put in triumph led relay all good. Bugger to find but once found easy job. Take it inner fairing panel ( need to remove side panel ) and I undid both bolts each side so whole light and fairing nose came forward.

Got led bulbs in NZ BUT the damn things are too tall, ie they stick out too much and hit the plastic lense cover! One broke when I tightened lends cover so on rest haven’t tightened it right up.
No damn good.
Triumph own led lights stupid money, just refuse to go there.

Anyone fitted good bright led indicators that fit straight on triumph mounting systems but were reasonable price please?

I don't know if this helps but I have LED's on the front of the bike but the original incandescents at the rear.
I simply fitted two Indicator resistors bought from Ebay in line just inside the fairing where front indicator mounts.

I never touched it, you can't blame me, it went off when I was cleaning it.

Update, fitted triumph led indicator box and the cheap eBay led indicators as above, and they’re useless. Less light than stock units and are very directional so only seen well from straight at right height. Useless rubbish.
Tempted to buy triumph original led but they’re bloody expensive.
Anyone recommend good after market led units? No longer care if they have triumph special fitting. Just need good strong light!
