How to fix your rabit ears rear signal lights on your 05/06 WR's rear fender

What i done, after installing them, they were pointing up and i hated it. I bent them down and put some duct tape on them to hold them in the position i needed them, then i heated up the bent area (in the pic) until the rubber got hot, then i let it cool down overnight, removed the tape and voila they stayed right in place.

Most of our group have gone to flush mounts on the rear as the stalk mount lights aren't very crash resistant.

True, I just posted this because people were PM'img me asking how i straightened out mine. I have been extremely lucky (knock on wood) so far that I have not dropped my bike or crashed it yet, I guess I haven't been pushing it Quite enough yet......

I had a set like that on my last bike but the first time I biffed it I broke one so I went with a more flush mounted tear-drop style and never broke one again.

I don't want to sound stupid but can you not get the whole street kit from Yamaha? The WR's come with it in other countries.

Looks like a high dose of pledge on that plastic.

Maybe a clear coat or some plastic renew?

that is a nice black WR forsure, as for getting it from yamaha , I have asked people from Australia here to ask their dealer what part number kit they get as they install them at the local dealer before selling them, but no-one wants to help us, so I ended up buying a kit from Baja Designs , I would have spent double that to get a proper yamaha one but that's just the way I am. :excuseme:
