Ok a few questions. I got a side mount license plate and I am going to remove the dog's rear end ( i've already cut most of it off except to support the turn signals. I want to get rid of it entirely. What is the best way to mount new lights on the top spring. Any good relocator kits? And fairly cheap? Also, what are good fairly small lights to replace with and is it legal to ride around without rear turn signals for a bit while I get them ordered?

Thanks in advance!

Check out V-Mod.com. I got turn signal relocate mounts that mount on top of the shocks, and vizor litghts, small, chrome, look good.

I made my own out of 18g steel and mounted them to the rear bag mounts. You cant even see them unless you look under the fender. See pics.

I put on a custom rear fender and relocated my own turn signals. Just think of what you want to do and look at what you got then go to the hardware store - that is what I did. I like having turn signals due to the fact I don't want to die. Check out my gallery.

anything where you don't do it off the top shock bolt. If I have my large biker's friend I'm worried about it being entirely visible when I go to 240.

Problem I have with the vmod rear turn signal relocators is that with the constant up and down of my adjustable air ride they don't stay in place. I have to constantly keep adjusting them so their both facing towards the rear.

Sometimes I'll be riding around and one will be facing the rear and the other pointing up into the sky.:banghead:

Thought of getting rid of the blinkers all together, have a look at some of the integrated tailights (I think they look trick) you can have your blinkers without them sticking out.

Thanks for the input guys. What do you guys think of the Heavy's integrated turn signals. A little expensive, but it looks great. Anyone have these, and can you actually see the turn signals once the brakes are applied... Seems to me that the bright red leds may drown out the turn signal? Any thoughts?

I bought chrome brackets from Custom Dynamics along with LED turn signals from Kuryakyn. Very nice setup me thinks.

I purchased the Clear Alternatives Integrated light for mine with the smoked lense they are considerably cheaper than Heavys. I am very happy with it and have removed the blinkers which I think looks very good. Link to Clear Alternatives website:

scroll down to the V-Rod integrated light and it shows how it looks with the blinker going.

thanks for the input. Any complaints about not being able to see your blinkers in your taillight?

I have made metal straps that bend in 1/2" out of steel so that I can mount heavy chrome bullet turn signals onto. The V-mod aluminum rear relocation pieces say they are not strong enough for this style turn signal. Since my fender is black, I painted the straps black. I think it goes well with the chrome bullet turn signals.

I would not feel safe using just the turn signals in the CA or the HeavyCycles taillights. I have the HC with integrated signals which is much brighter then the CA light and the signals were still not bright enough in direct sunlight. That's why I added the additional signals off the shock mounts. JMHO
