Rear indicators that don't melt?

I'm after replacing the standard rear indicators on my 2011. The low side exhaust I have on the 'bike blasts into the right rear indicator and it's starting to char and melt...

Any suggestions on some that might be a good alternative? Thanks.

A picture of what? The standard rear indicator?

I'm just after suggestions for an indicator that would fit a 2011 Speedy that is probably smaller and more resistant to heat than a bog standard plastic and rubber affair.

What puts me off those is other road users not being able to see indication as well as with normal indicators. Mind you, they don't take much notice either way.... maybe I should consider one.

to be honest, the comp werkes one is pretty bright. and i really i doubt the fact that the stock signal is 3 inches down and to the left or right is really going to make it THAT much more visible. but thats just me.

I can't remember if you have the Leo Vince on yours, but there's a caution note on their site warning you of the gasses hitting the signals.

I'd go integrated. Had the same as diesel on mine.

I have a GPR on mine.

Have also ordered an integrated - it does look like the LED ones are pretty bright. Cheers guys.

Probably too late but if instead of the integrated you get a tail tidy like the R&G it will relocate the signals up and forward a good bit. Still just as visible by other drivers but it should get the signals out of the path of the hot gasses.
