Front signal lights for 2017 Monster 1200

What options do I have to replace the stock FRONT signal lights for the 2017 Monster 1200?

The headlight mounted options available for earlier models does not seem to be workable on the new headlight. I don't really want to use the current fork mounts as I think a smaller LED setup on the large stock base would not be aesthetically pleasing.

Any other ideas?

Thanks in advance

Using small LED turn signals on the OEM fork mounts looks ugly indeed. There are some turn signals from New Rage Cycles that clamp around the forks, they look cool. Other option would be checking the headlight housing, if it's not too different from the previous one, you may only need to drill a hole on the side and place the signals you like. Below is the link for the NRC turn signals.

Thank you very much for the advice, Nomad.

Does anyone know if drilling into the headlight is a viable option?

of coarse we have different tastes but i put the NRC front signals and rear tail city on my on my 1200R and i think they look way cool. just mho. they are not expensive and quite easy to install. good luck.

Thanks Dar and BHT

BHT, do you have any pictures of the NRC lights?

And what size does the Monster 1200 need? I assume that I will need to buy the load equalizer too? Did you go with the Running Light option?
