Talking Flush mounted turn signals and license plate relocator

Got some smoke, flush mount smoke turn signals on the 09 Custom SE, and I love them! I am also buying a verticle curved license plate mount to go off the side by the tire .. here is a picture of the change taking off the factory bracket/turn signals made! Let me know what you think.

Try that, those seem to be working. And YES I need to wipe down the bike. Road home in the rain before those pictures were taken.

I got the light off of ebay for $9.99 and yes they are a two wire that connected right up, and I got the bracket off of ebay for $20, and it has an arm with a hole cut in it.. you take the axle nut off and put the bracket on, put it where you like as far as vertical adjustments, and then tighten the axle nut back on. It can be used on the right or left side, I liked the looks on the right side better personally.

can you post links to the ebay auctions you used so we can get more details on exactly which lights and plate holder they were. I was planning on doing the same thing to my 900.

Thanks

Does your plate have to be lighted in your state? What did you use to light it?

Looks nice and sounds like it didn't cost you a fortune.

I did have to alter the bracket slightly, but it took 10 minutes. Would not have to alter it if you ran it on the left side.
