I replaced the stock mirrors/turn signals with bar end mirrors and mirror block off turn signals. Super easy job, definitely looks more sleek. 2021 Supersport S

It's a shame as I don't think (and I may be wrong) those indicators would be legal in the UK as they don't look as if they would be very visible from the front.

Out of curiosity, what is the width (in mm) that the actual lens of the front indicators are apart from each other taken from the nearest point to each other?

11 inches or 279mm from LED center to center
9.5 inches or 241mm from inner most part to inner most part

@jjnapper Thanks. I ask as in the UK the MOT (roadworthiness test due at 3 years from new and then every 12 months thereafter) states that the front indicators for a solo motorbike must be a minimum of 240mm apart. Bizarrely enough it also says:
Font Magenta Rectangle Brand Number


So in effect, it is down to the MOT Testers discretion and whether or not he is having a good day 😅
So if they were to measure them at an MOT (and your measurements are correct) then it would pass (y)

Personally (and I know its down to the individual, so don't shoot me!) I would be concerned about their visibility from the front especially as you say they are 'not so bright in the day time'.

How about shooting us a quick video showing them in operation during the day to see the brightness? Nightime also if that’s not too much of a bother. I’m thinking of doing this to my bike as well this summer so I’d like to see how those blocks work. Thanks!

I’ve seen these type of turn signals made for other Ducatis and they are made better since the signal faces to the front, these signals definitely light up more on a 45° angle and even bordering towards 90° (Meaning that they are more visible from the side as opposed to the front where they are needed

Why they didn't turn them slightly more to the front is a mistake I think.

How clear are the mirrors at speed? Do you need to buy adapters to mount the mirrors on the SS?
Haven’t ridden with them yet, little cold here. Adapters are a must, I don’t think u can install without. I have to see how they are without the stock bar ends. I might be able to take the bike out this coming week I’ll update
