turn signal indicators

Post by fibersport »



It might be just me but has anyone else been bothered by reflections in the turn signal indicator lenses? I must be at the right height and angle where I keep catching reflections in them. I was thinking of spraying them with a flat clear to knock down the gloss of them. Was wondering if anyone else had the same problem.

Can't say I've ever noticed.

Is this when riding due East or West (from sun) or is it at night (from following headlights)?

This is reflection from the sun.

From my phone, definitely. From the screen and gauges, very little. And from those, never.

It must be my height hitting just at the right angle. It's a little bit of a pain because sometimes there is nothing then an occasional reflection that looks like a flash which draws my attention away from the road only to realize it was the reflection. I'll be looking for some flat clear spray this weekend!

For the time being, maybe try a piece of 3M Scotch Invisible tape on them?
