Front Turn Signal Mounting Plates

Has anyone ever made a flat plate to mount aftermarket turn signals. The reason behind this: I got BikeMaster LED signals, the wires run thru the mounting bolt and Nut, the nut and washer have a cut out to slide over the wires. I can't get a socket on the nut to tighten, I have installed them but not as tight as I would like (can't get a wrench into the back of the nut.)

Basically I am looking for 2 plates to match the bolt holes and profile of the front turn signal mount, you could mount the turn signal to the plate and then feed the wires thru and use another bolt and nut on the second hole to mount to the stock mount.


Anyone want to make a set?

Got pics? I assume this is for the front, right? Can you feed the wire through a deep socket held by a pair of visegrips? If not, can you hold lateral force on the nut with a screwdriver while turning the signal light?

I used the screwdriver and turned the signal by hand. Just thought if someone could make the plates it would look better and hide the empty front hole.

When I installed aftermarket LED's on the front of my 919, I took them completely apart so I had the stalk with no wires running through it. It made it very easy to tighten.

Mine look like this so there is no tearing them apart

Well, you might be able to carefully pry off the lenses and pop out the innards. That's how I had to do mine.

My rizomas are the same way. Just use a screwdriver and turn the signal to tighten it. It doesn't have to be 20 ftlbs. I got mine tight enough with a lock washer so it wouldn't turn itself loose and haven't thought about it since. This is a number of years before I got Watsens.
