Arrow $4 Sportster Rear Turn Signal Relocation Kit

I have seen many home-made blinker relocation setups, but this design is by far the simplest (both to build and elegant design) and can be adapted to just about any style of bike (chromed, blacked out, or whatever) - just change the rod covering material. I did this on my Dyna and donated a couple bucks to the guy's website. Just thought I would pass it on.

In my opinion, simple is best....

Nice. The only thing I would change would be to try and hide the wires to the lights. I'm wicked OCD about wiring showing.

Looks Good Jerry! how is the turn signal mounted? Is it a threaded rod? Or did you run the bolt from the inside out?

hello there thanks for the reply. i just ran the bolts from inside the fender out did a dab of loctite on the threads put on the washer spacer washer then the light, snugged it down , i ran the wires thru the fender holes after putting in rubber grommets there to keep the wires from rubbing the metal edges, ran wires along inner wall of fender there are clips there for the wires and hooked the wires up in the taillight assembly as they normally go . nice clean look and they havent moved in like two years.

thanks again ride safe , ride often
