I have this one. Mounts up your stock turn signals with bags installed. Works great and inexpensive.

I bought the one from DT.

Maybe I missed something, or am retarded, but it didn't "fit" without being modded a bit.

The holes for the rear mounting are spaced correctly, but if you place the bracket that far back, the center portion of it hits a portion of the undertail mud-guard.

The holes are too far apart for the second set of mounting holes.

I re-drilled the mounting holes (4) so that the bracket would fit all 4 stock mounting holes, and the singe center mounting hole as well.

It works, looks good, and was somewhat cheap ($25?...put it's plastic, so it's no huge bargin). But I did have to mod mine to make it work as I thought it should.

Get the short stalks while you are there. $5 for the pair, that is a deal.

The roads are flat I bought a harley!

Hmmm, mine mounted straight up. Completely plug and play. Hmmm.... Don't know what's going on. Got mine a couple of years ago.

You can use just the two holes provided to mount it up. It is hard to say if two are good enough to risk loosing the plate. I did what TAftonomos did and drilled a couple extra holes for my own peace of mind.

The DT part works quite slick as I only have it mounted in the summer and throw the Duc fender on for wet weather to keep as much crud as possible off my top case.

Have good one.

I had the same problem with mine - but took 5mins to fix and works a treat

I had to mod mine too - didn't take long though, just had to reshape the frontmost part of the mounting bracket with a disc cutter.
These eliminators (DesmoTimes) are also for the earlier carby 900ss bikes.
