If you do opt for the HD kit, put Red loctite on the threads when you screw the directional on to it and if you do plan on strapping anything on that bar, use caution!
Thanks Sioux I will keep that in mind. Don't think I have another option for install at this time.

Default I did on my 2012 1200C

I ordered the HD relocation kit and discovered it didn't fit. I was able to modify it to work fine by not using the plate holder that comes with the kit but using the stock plate holder and getting some longer machine screws to attach the bar. I drilled two holes in the fender; ran wires in harness I made thru holes and rubber grommets and worked fine.

If you go with our new bags, you don't even have to relocate the turn signals.

Quick detach and key lock lids.

Before buying any parts or doing any work on your bike. You should first buy the Service manual. It will save you some grief in the long run.

Misbehaven is absolutely right-- get the manual. It has helped me tremendously on wiring stuff and the turn signal post removal.... money well spent.

The re-lo kit for the XL2012C (from the surdyke web site):
Part Number: 67800071
Name: TURN SIGNAL RELOCATION KIT, XL1200C DOM
Description: Required when installing rigid or detachable saddlebags on XL1200C models (Domestic).
Price: $76.34

I found a bike for sale online that had the kit and I was not impressed. It looked like a long skinny tube bolted to the plate bracket.

However I really like the new LeatherPros. No relocation needed.

I'd love the Leatherpros but I couldn't afford the cost guys. In hindsight maybe I should have waited but I had no idea how hard it was just to find a signal relocation kit for my bike. Due to this damned LED brake light it's bastardized and the regular run of the mill kits don't fit. I seen nothing offered by any of the other companies out there.

I'll be looking at a service manual real soon.

HS,
67800071 is supposed to be for 2011 (and I would assume 2012) XL1200C with the LED tail light. There are no instructions for this kit on the Harley website (yet).

Not sure what part number it is that I got but it's already done. Just not a fan of the kit but there were no other options.

Any pics?
I wanted to go with a laydown plate and almost made a purchase but I felt like something was wrong. Then I checked my bike again (at the time I had it for 2 days) and then really noticed the difference of the LED set up. Glad I re-checked...
