Looking for Aluminum 43mm Fork Clamps to Install Custom Turn Signals on my 919

I ride a 2007 Honda 919 or CB900F Hornet if you prefer. Love the bike and everything about it but would like to customize just a bit.

I found a set of aftermarket aluminum turn signals I really like but they look stupid attached to the stock mounts.

I have been looking for some 43mm aluminum fork clamps that I can use to mount the front turn signals. Looking for suggestions on the best way to go on the rear?

Also while I am asking does anybody know where I can pick up block off plates for the stock mounts? You cant remove them as they are integral to the headlight mount.

Thanks,

Jester

I cut the front mounts off and used inexpensive fork mounts off eBay - looks great. I did it while replacing the steering head bearings so the whole front end was apart though.

For the rear there are lots of ways to go. I got my bike with a chopped up rear so I built a very simple frame out of aluminum stock that mounts behind the license plate.

I have seen the inexpensive fork mounts and they just don't do it for me. I am looking for something a bit more sexy like a set of aluminum clamps.

When I was looking I only saw expensive chrome or integrated led band clamps for cruisers (which tend to have different sized forks) on the cheapos. They really dissappear when you step back which is what I wanted.

Let is known what you end up doing!

I've got three different Martin Fabrication light mounts - they might work for turnsignals.
25640, 20645 & 15635
The only difference I can tell by eyeballing them is the hardware.
Here is a picture, if one of these is something you can use, let me know or go to ebay and search for martin fabrication.
I'd offer a huge and I mean HUGE in a Donald Trump way, HUGE discount on these to a Wristtwister member.
