Turn signal mount mod for relocating signals
Here's what I came up with to cover the big holes in the back rest or the headlight brackets for those of us that have (or those that will consider) relocated the turn signals.
Take an old broken or weak turn signal, cut it off with a hack saw (seepics). Run it over a belt sander or sanding disk with fine paper to get it smooth. Paint it with black bumper paint if you like. Get a plastic plug (see pics) from your local parts house or hardware store and put a dab of silicone on it and place it in the hole where the wires ran thru it. Place it back on the bracket twist into place and tighten the screw down- Done! Nice look instead of having a big opening on the sissy bar or headlamp brackets.
I do not have a pic of the finished bracket with the hole covered. The plug in the pic is actually too big for the hole and I have to drill it out then put the plug in place. You can drill the hole out bigger (like I have to) to fit whatever size plugs are available.
