    Ok, that's the sidelights done. Went with these in the end, £2.95 a pair, not too big, and nicely clear coated. Makes a definite 'can you see me?' difference!

    Have ordered both thanks for your links and help.

    Don't know about sweeping the garage, it could do with some carpet on the fool ;-)

    Re: Led Bulbs

    And tomorrow's task, fitting the LED headlight bulbs! When I fitted the sidelights I realised that the headlights were pretty poor and I was never going to wait until the winter months to find out if it's worth doing So have gone for these, combined with the deeper dust covers

    The reviews are mostly from bikers so figured it was worth a shot! Will let you know how it goes...

    Re: Led Bulbs

    K, that was (mostly) easier than expected.

    The bulbs are fairly accessible, and I used long-nosed pliers to fix the springy bastud thing (technical term) back on as it would only fix back on by hand one side of each light. There is just enough room to tuck the LED plug and lead back in to the light surround on the left side but not on the right. Still, the extra deep dust covers allow for that so the right side cables are looser but still covered and safe. Will have a think about a longer term solution once I've actually tested the bike at night on some country roads.
    The beams seems to be pretty much at the same height as the original but a lot brighter although testing in a cluttered (and yes, I know, mucky) garage is not particularly scientific

    A few pics to give an idea:

    and just the side lights (door closed, shows the improvement better)
