1995 xv1100 front turn signal stock location

PostAuthor: Shawnkva » Mon May 20, 2019 8:48 pm

The PO installed a huge windshield and a light bar in my bike. I want to remove all of that and put it back to stock. From what I can tell, he removed the stock turn signal mounting bracket and relocated the turn signals to the bar. Can someone post a picture of the stock setup so I can see how it all mounted? So far, I know I need the signal mounting bracket and both of the stalk rubber mounts. I just don't know how the bracket mounts to the bike.

The front signal brackets mounts on the same studs as the instrument gauge assembly.

I had the big windshield but dropped bike and cracked it. Anyway every time I think of that windshield I hear that horn introduction to YMCA song. Some guy made some comment about the bike windshield looking like cop on Villiage people got stuck in my head. Also for a long time I was humming the A-team theme song thinking I was humming the "CHIPS" theme song. Someone corrected me. I think it a mental phenomina of 70s teens.

It does remind me of a cop bike. It doesn't look good to me at all. I do like how it breaks up the wind though. I just cannot get past how awful it looks. The light bar has to go too. The PO put on the light bar, huge wind shield, tow hitch and a trunk. All that is off or coming off. He did put on some nice exhaust and a Mustang seat. Those will stay on.
