What looks like a pattern part coil (shorter length) just fried itself. Too hot to touch, now nothing.

Anyone know if I can run incandescent indicators up front with LED at the rear?

Thanks

I could use some help on the brake callipers.
I plan to run with banjo fitting direct to calliper.
Anyone got a method to remove the insert that’s preventing the bolt from running in?
Thanks.

I used a drywall screw, maybe 1.5"?  Anyway, long enough that you have something to grab.  Gently screw it into the insert, then lever it out with some pliers.  I don't remember it taking a whole lot of brute force, but it has been a few years since I did it.
If it works good, it looks good...

Thanks. Assume the insert is press fit, not threaded?
Also there’s a small lip on the calliper did you bother to file that off or just seat the copper washer in there?
Thanks

I did not file the lip off, as I was not intending to use a banjo bolt...i used 2 hardlines on my dual disc setup.  I just needed to move the insert to the bleed screw hole so both sides would be symmetrical.

Also, check the bike out in bike of the month.  Close battle going on.  Could use a vote.

Finally got all the wiring sorted - what a headache.
Mix of incandescent up front and LED at the back means the indicators don’t yet flash but everything else works ok.
I hadn’t figured on the happy brake light set up however.
