|BRET H||Kanuck69 that is EXACTLY what I want to do with my rear turn signals. I understand the shaving concept.....but I am still confused as to how the shaved turn signal mounts are bolted/screwed.....attached to the tail light housing. I so want to do this mod because I am tired of my box style Tourmaster saddlebag lids hitting my turn signals when I open them and I want to relocate my helmet locks to where the factory spot where the rear turn signals go.....so that they will no longer be under the sadle bags and I can actually use them. THANK YOU!|

I did mine like that & I ran a bolt vertically the same as I did when I shaved my signals.

|M_Angell||You reinforce the taillight housing when you attach the sigs. I have seen people make brackets for this and I have also seen people use washers to spread out the weight|

Relocation brackets currently on e-bay.
These brackets will move your TS straight back several inches giving you extra clearance to get into your saddlebags.

Rear Turn Signal Relocation Ideas
I am thinking about relocating my rear turn signals to make more room for saddlebags.
I have seen many different options on here but have a question.
It appears to me that the from TS have the same mounting setup as the rear. And these seem to attach to the headlight brackets (part number 11044 & 11044A).
Has anyone ever done or considered using a set of these and mounting somewhere in the back for mounting rear TS?
I ask this because I am not ready to do any kind of fabrication, although I am slowly trying to collect the proper equuipment and training to learn how to make more serious modifications, and am looking for a cheap yet effective way to move my rear TS.
Any thought would be appreciated. Thanks.
BTW - I am not really fond of putting them on the tailight housing, although I think I could manage this mod, because I am not sure the plastic is strong enough. The last thing I want to be doing is constantly looking back to see if they broke, because I get nuts like that, and propbably should be looking back there while riding.
