    nd OEM Front signals


    so the the rc51 failed inspection today because the front signals were not DOT approved. Does anyone know if the front signals from a 98 f3 will fit? they all look the same but im not sure if where they mount to the fairing is the same.

    If they dont, does anyone have a set of front OEM signals i could borrow for inspection? thanks

    who cares. just hook up a pair just to get a sticker & put your non DOT ones back on. use duct tape if you have to

    Re: nd OEM Front signals

    alright f3 signals it is. I took it to bettencourts this morning after i got done at the registry cause it was kinda close and i was going there anyway. They failed me for fork seals, no licence plate light and the stupid signals.

    I wouldnt have had them do the work if i was staying here longer, but since im going back to ny i said fuck it and had them do the seals. i just gotta go back there with some signals and bolt lights for the licence plate.

    if you can wait a week, you can use my plate light. it's just a plate bolt with an LED in it. i'm going to stoughton next weekend to install my new plate lights

    nope. they write down their inspected bikes in a notebook. not sure how it goes from a notebook to the RMV.

    thanks for the heads up ill check there tonight. Do you guys think they will let me work on my bike in their lot? is it going to be some kind of retarded liability thing where ill have to get it off their property to work on it? i really dont want to load it in the truck and then bring it back.

    Re: nd OEM Front signals

    I have a set of OE RC front signals if you want 'em for the inspection.
    I have no plate light, cant even really see it, my rear directionals are only a couple inches apart and last year i needed fork seals too.
    I go to an old school chopper guy in Pepperell. he'll pass anything.

    Re: nd OEM Front signals

    well today was like hell on earth, but for the most part concentrated in the bed of my pickup. i went down there at 9am this morning, they said no to working on it there so i loaded it in my truck and went across the street. zip tied up the f3 signals no problem but the plate lights were a different story.

    one wire on one of the lights broke, so now im down to one wire. I forgot my test light so im guessing which wires on the brake lights were const. 12v and which was ground and which was switched 12v. well common sense would tell me black is ground but nooooooooooooooooo, thats 12v constant. fuck you honda. after an hour of cussing i ended up driving it back to my house and finished it there with the most jalopied wiring job ive ever done. regardless the guy said it would pass, just waiting on the fork seals to come tomorrow. got a few assholes on bikes that honked and waved at me while i was wrenching in the parking lot today. i hope it was one of you assholes.

    that's what was done for me, because one of my brake lights wasn't working last year. one of the parts guys even lent me a bar-end mirror to get through the inspection, cuz i had no mirrors (arranged ahead of time). this was a large, and well-known sportbike dealership, mind you. they had the sense not to fail me and take my money for nothing. kindness goes a long way. i mean shit, i ended up buying a bike from them partly because of it.

    if I were you, i'd take my business elsewhere. they probably expect that you'll have everything fixed by them. i don't remember bettencourt's service being cheap.
    well by fail i mean rejected. i didnt know there was a difference? i paid 15 bucks for the inspection even though its rejected. I can get it re inspected anywhere for free if i bring the little tag they gave me. Since im on a tight schedual and will be going back out of state saturday, i just let them do the fork seals. Cheap they are not, almost double the quote i got from Pete at GMD but time wouldnt allow me to get it out to him. They let me take my bike since they didnt have the seals yet so i could get it home to fix all the lights and stuff.

    Even though i had some bad luck, every single member of the staff i interacted with was very helpful and really courteous. They slipped me in their schedual so that i could have my bike fixed and inspected before saturday. They are one of the best "customer service friendly" dealers ive been too. But i probably wont get it inspected there again since i know they are sticklers.
