Are those protected against a low-speed tipover by the crash bars and handlebars? How do they attach to the fairing? I've been looking for a Vstrom solution, but I'd hate to have my fairing crack and lights get smooshed just because my Vstrom decided it got sleepy and needed a nap in the dirt....

Can we see a close-up picture of where they attach to the fairing? Also, if your model Vstrom owner is brave enough, a picture of the bike lying on its side?

If you'd like someone to model a Vstrom lying on its side with the lights for your website, I'll do it free of charge if you send the lights free of charge...

You should subscribe to the thread! Interested to see some up-close shots and whether or not the fairing may be damaged in a tip-over. My Vee likes to take naps when the going gets tough.

Now I subscribed haha Still working on getting some more photos and info but here's a straight on shot



The Brackets are also CNC aircraft grade aluminum so extremely durable.
Are the turn signals a common part that breaks in a tip over or no?

Thanks
Mike

Yeah, I think so. My buddy and I have both replaced our turn signals with something more durable after tip-overs. I was looking for a pic, but I think my bike usually ends up on the bark busters and the crash bars in the front. If I have the hard panniers on the back, that tends to offer a little extra protection.

It also makes a difference whether you set it down gently as you loose your balance or whether you land pretty hard. This picture makes it look not as bad, I think, because the middle of the trail (where the crash bars are leaning) is higher than where the wheels are. This was also a gentle set-down...


And in these pictures I have my panniers on, but that turn signal's pretty close:

The OEM Turn Signals on all V-Stroms will typically "snap-off" in a fall or tip-over unless the bike is wearing crashbars and/or Rear Panniers. The stock TS stalks are non-flexible (i.e. rigid) and are not foregiving. Many V-Strom owners replace the expensive stockers with semi-flexible (and lots cheaper) Buell TS's.......or other aftermarket flexi-stalk units. Some inmates install "flush-mounted" units to avoid future crushing........but I don't recommend it since the signals do not protrude far enough out away from the headlight to be seen. Just my opinion.........

I see..it does look like a common area that can take some damage in a crash. The mounts and lights are built to last but I definitely see the concern for damage

Hi Jai

I unfortunately don't have two of the latest Squadrons on a V-Strom

Here is one picture during a night photo shoot. This was also the older Cree XML-1 now we are using the newer Cree XML-2 which went from 3600 Lumens to 4300 Lumens.
