Obscura - Can I mount 1984 front signals and/or fork badge/cover on 1981?

Post by sacruickshank »



A few rather obscure questions ...
1. How do the front turn signal mounts (p/n 33410-MG9-000) attach to a 1984 standard?
2. Can those 1984 signal mounts be used on a 1981 standard?
3. Does this involve also using the lower fork clamp cover from the '84?

As background, I'm trying to get new front signals mounted on my '81 without having to buy the expensive fork covers for that model year that include the mounting tabs. Unfortunately, the tabs on my fork covers were hacked off when the dealer installed the Vetter fairing, which I have now removed.

Here's a pic of my current DIY mounting bracket and aftermarket signal.
