Denny, Thanks for the links. I thought about doing something like kc's light bar, but if I do a flush mount on the fairing I won't have the extra exposed wiring. It is still an option though. The mounting idea on gadget is perfect! Its clean and makes it easier to create the inner/dash.
New rider, I thought about what you're suggesting and I agree that the look would be unique. I am concerned about a couple things though if I were to go this route. The stock turn signal location is on the center line of the headlight. To do this and leave the lights in the stock location, I would have to notch the fairing. Another concern is that the setback on the signals is about 2 1/2" and the fairing's contour might require a larger notch than I want to make. There are also possible issues with vibration too. It is still viable though.
I think it would be neat to use a strand of led's set to run sequentially instead of blinking at the bottom of each side of the wing near where the handles are. More research on the way.
This project will take me a while. I have a lot of travel for work over the next few months, so it'll be an hour here an hour there.
