Sure this has been covered but......


Riding this weekend with another 9er and he had a turn signal fall off. I have ridden with others that had this happen and they had left it hanging. Well we got looking around and found that the bolt that holds the rear cowl off is the same size as the turn signal bolt. So if this ever happens to you just take one of your cowl bolts out and secure your signal with that.:bigthumbsup:

I would think that you are talking about left front signal. It has happened in the past for many members.

My left front

almost came off one day. Just one little machine screw holding them in. Check that screw once in a while. They take a lot of vibration.

Some are so loose they fall off, others have to drill them out. I wonder who calibrates their assembly tools? :D

Mine were pretty snug, but removable. I added the Rivco turn signal relocator to the front and used blue loctite when I put the signals on them.

I was preparing my bike this weekend for a long road trip up to Daytona this week. I decided to tighten every screw, bolt, nut, and clamp I could reach. The front directional was the only one with a striped screw. I pulled the lens out and found the threaded base cracked. Fortunately I had a spare lens assembly from when I de-beavered the rear end.

Yes, had to ride holding it so it would not smash up against the bike.:redfaced: When I got home I added some loc tight to the screw... problem solved.

I know most people take them off. I took them off. But this is why I posted this. So that if someone else has a screw fall out while riding they won't have to worry about it banging against the bike while they ride home. :bigthumbsup:
