Got an idea and as it costs nothing, I will most probably try it next time I work on my bike. I will weaken the mounting shafts of the front indicators to make them sacrificial. I think I will use a hacksaw blade and go around the shaft, which is basically a hollow plastic tube, cutting about 1/2 way into the surface, then additionally open up the front and bottom of the shaft, then cover it with some black duct tape to avoid crap and water getting in. With some luck and dead reckoning, I should have myself a pair of indicators that will snap off much more easily and will not crack the fairing in a minor drop. Whaddayathink?
