I've contacted an acquaintance of mine in Japan who provides a service shipping Japanese scooter parts to the deprived people in the rest of the world. He has done some research for me and he's able to buy brand new front 'winkers' from Yamaha for the Beluga. Yup these are those super nice flushmount ones you've been seeing in your dreams.

These are pretty expensive so I don't expect anyone else will want a set, but if you do speak up now, because you're not going to get many more opportunities like this. I'm paying $38/blinker plus shipping from Japan, so about $100 total. If anyone else wants a set you'd be looking at $76 for the 2 blinkers plus another $10 for shipping to you from me....so about $86 bucks total (possibly more if duty gets charged).

Anyways, I need to know in the next day or two. Here are some pictures of these nice blinkers vs. the stock ones.

The thought of having that glove box is appealing strongly to me too! Perhaps I'll work on ordering that after this gets settled. I'm just a bit nervous about that because there's probably a lot of pieces involved and it would be a shame to get 3/4 of what's needed for a glovebox setup.

any other parts possible?
apart from the ever elusive windshield and rare LH mirror what i'll probably be interested in would be a fuel cock/pump gasket

He should be able to get any part that Yamaha Japan still sells....so anything that hasn't been discontinued. I would imagine you could get the LH mirror and fuel cock gasket but those parts should also be available from a European Yamaha dealer I would think? Have you tried ordering through your local Yammy dealer? Stuff from Japan is usually more expensive and if it's been discontinued in Europe, it's probably discontinued in Japan too since there's probably only one factory that makes any given part.

The windshield might be a good thing to see if he can get because perhaps that wasn't sold in Europe? There are way more OEM accessories available in Japan than the rest of the world for scooters. For the Beluga there was the windshield, tennis racket rack, rear storage container etc.

If you're serious about wanting the windscreen then let me know and I'll ask him to check into it. I would imagine that you're looking at $50-$100 for the windscreen though and then shipping from Japan to Europe would be another $30 or so I'd guess. That's a total guess though. I would check into getting it from your local Yammy dealer first in case it's available there.

About the fuel cock gasket, I have a spare fuel cock that I removed from my Beluga. Do you need just the gasket or the whole thing? I'd sell you mine for cheap but shipping to Europe is likely still $20 or so.

I'm really serious about the windshield... Wink tried it around here and if it were possible at all it would be the same story around... they would have to ship it from Japan plu their fee Wink So if I can get it almost directly I'm up for it... Very Happy about the fuel cock I will post a more seriuos topic in the restoration section... It might be a simple fix I hope Wink

I guess I should conclude this thread by posting up a pic of the finished product. I'm very happy with these blinkers...they totally change and clean up the look of the front end.

These JDM blinkers are very easy to install. The only issue I encountered was that the blinker wires had a wierd plug on the end of them so I just snipped that off and crimped on some appropriately sized bullet connectors so I could plug the wires into my wiring harness. The JDM blinkers have appropriately coloured wires so it's easy to plug it in.

Are these still available? I'd be interested. Two questions though, does the distributor take Euros and does he ship to Europe? I'd need some sort of verified shipping as I've had international orders get stuck in German customs sometimes.

bummer. not even taking emails. any idea where he sourced them? he lists some online shops, but they're awful hard to navigate when you can't read japanese.

He just ordered them at his local Yamaha dealer. If you know anyone in Japan they could do the same. Presumably, anyone that lives in a country where these were sold (some European countries got them) could get them from Yamaha. You can't order them from Yamaha outside of these countries because their parts systems aren't setup to order parts that were never sold in that country.
