Default Plasti dipped headlight and shortened front signals

Plasti dipped my headlight. Also found out that the bolts from the underside of the stock rear fender / under tail will work for shortening the front signals.

Very nice. Funny how such little things can make such a difference.

Looks good.

Is there a DIY somewhere to show how to shorten the indicators?

I couldnt find a diy, but once you get the headlight off they side markers just un-bolt and then the spacers slip off the side markers. Not sure if that helps or not

I've spent the last three months looking at aftermarket turn signals and this is way better than any of them...and cheaper. I know what I'm doing this weekend. Thanks for posting.

One of the first things I did, 500 miles and holding up just fine. Thinking about doing the handle bar/riser/triple next
