Front signal relocate and upside down mirrors

Man was this easy.
It all started when I looked over my shoulder and didnt see a car. Did a routine check of the mirror and started making the lane change. All this in about 1 second. A car that was directly behind me THAT I DIDNT SEE and was moving faster than me pulled out the same time. Needless to say the Pucker factor was about a 10+.
Went directly to the Harley dealer and bought the Signal relocate kit
Part #57205-05 and turned the mirrors upside down. Man is this alot better, I can see everything behind me perfectly and I have to say it looks pretty cool also, IMHO, Took about 20 minutes from start to finish.
Peace and ride safe,
Finn

Good stuff! I've seen a few like this but no one has addressed what I'm wondering about...will they dent the tank like the signals do if you drop it?

I have about a 1/2" clearance between the tank/Frame and the Mirror. The attached pictures are with the forks against the stops....So I would have to say no unless the Handle Bars get bent.

Finn I did mine months ago and agree that is the best mod by far. It should come factory like that.

Nightrod81 The old style one were sticking out a few inches the new one are pretty tight in. They are in more than when located under the bars.

Those look like they stick out farther than the HD relo's, and they kinda look cheap...

Thanks. I think I see the difference. With the HD kit (I have one) the main piece wraps halfway around the fork and then juts out about 1.5 inches., the turn signal sits in the middle on the fork. With Drag Specialties, it looks like their mount actually screws into the bolt on the triple tree which is located a little behind the the fork. So, with theirs, the signal sits a little farther back and yes, Im guessing, much closer to the fork.

Longer Pinch Bolt, Bracket for the turn signal, bolt to attach signal to bracket, and an acorn nut for the mirror attachment.
Second easiest mod so far, first, Pondos caps.
Peace and ride safe,
