Cool $1 Turn Signal relocation

Somebody look at my turn signal pics in the gallery under modifications. What kind of problems could I possible run into with this set up? I'm gonna seal the turn signal mounts on the inside of the taillight with silicone, to prevent water from getting in there. I've got some more pics to post of the process when I get totally through with it.

Had to get a couple of 6mm nuts and washers. Would have been free, if I had a few metric nuts laying around.

Can't say I see any problems you'd have.
Maybe some additional support along the insides of the tail light housing (1/8" steel plate or similar) just so there's less of a chance of the housing breaking if the turnsignals are bumped a little too hard.
But as it looks, it should be just fine.

the only thing i can see is if you put a rack on, they might get a lil rough lovin from the luggage you put on that. other then that should be fine if your careful.

I never go far enough to need a rack. My wife bought me some saddlebags, and the turn signals were in the way.

The plastic is unexpectedly rigid. I checked that before I cut the holes. Probly won't support the bike on its side, but the fender won't get all banged up like it would if I used a license plate relocate. I'll wait until the first time I break it before I use steel to back it up. Steel is harder to cut than plastic, and all my tools are primarily designed for woodworking. Besides, I've gotta go to work tomorrow, and I don't have a lot of time left for this project!

That looks great ! I was thinking of doing that but not to relocate. I was thinking of adding 2 more lights, for more visibility.

Other VN750 owners have done this as well without problems (and without any steel other than the bolt/nut I think). Your pictures are very nice. If someone has a kawasaki relocation kit laying around, maybe you could borrow the "C" (almost a "c") brace to use as a pattern (the one you would make would be a little thinner).

Hey Cegodsey,

I am about to win a new set of bags with the kaw supports on ebay, but it doesn't come with the relocation kit. Could you send me directions (in small easy to understand words and sentences, using as few EE terms as possible) for the relocation you did? and also, what did you do about the helmet locks? I don't use mine very often, but I would like to be able to keep 'em if I can. thanks, kait
