Sir can we bleach the orange indicator lens to clear lens ?
No Sir,
Bleaching will not remove the color as it's not a "Paint" of some sort. The Lens compound itself is made orange.
BTW, why are you so hell bent on Clear indicators? I think Orange indicators also look cool. Just upgrade them to LEDs.

Also, I orderd h4 LED headlight Bulb for Activa. Will let you know How it goes!

DIY - Daytime running lights for Activa

And yes! I am also thinking to add a small fog lamp for night riding. Let me try the new LED headlight, if still not as bright, I will install 1 or 2 Small LED fogs at the front.

mate I don't have knowledge about new vs old lenses. I guess visit a spares shop and ask them


and no, no projectors for me. just brought led headlight bulb to stuff into regular headlamps. if the beam pattern is decent, I will keep them. I'm also looking to modify them.

thats great sir ! , sir can i add the led strip just below the indicator to look ike drls [:)]
Yes Most certainly.
I'd suggest you use the waterproof variety of 5050 LED Strip. They are cuttable every 3 LEDs. Use some better tape/ Glue as the supplied adhesive is not good enough.
