If you relocate the signals to the lower triple tree you will have to learn about the multilock connector (so you can reroute the wires for the signals) If you relocate to the top triple tree you dont have to.

If you relocate to the top can you still fit the windshield for the long trips?

Yes you can. The only problem (if you want to call it that) is from the front view half of the signal is behind the clear windshield. Not much of a problem but if you look closely at the Harley catalog or web site you see they use extending bolts for the signals from there original mounting holes. I went with the lower mount. I think it looks great there. Good luck.

How did you get the mirrors to work? I just tried this tonight and the mirrors point at the ground and they hit my tank.

I am in the process of trying this out; although drag bars may not allow it. Will revert after a few beers and a crack at it. Good pics though

You have to turn the stem of the mirror so that it looks like its at a 45 degree angle with the handlebar (looking from the top). THEN you can adjust the mirror so it points at the right spot.

I got as far as drinking the beers and murphies law caught me out this afternoon. Front brake touch and sucker did not lock up but enough self pressure to cause some trauma. The rubber has split not far from the slave brake cylinder, spurting dot 4. Anyway from what i have been informed appears i have to purchase the whole front brake line system both sides up to the brake slave cylinder. Off the road and may try the mirrors to keep me busy and thanks 2 errorunkown for the advice
