Morsecode is an unknown quantity at this point
Default Relocating front signals '21 Forty 8

Hi all...new member here with a question (what else, right?)...

Has anyone managed to relocate/lower their front signals on a 2021 48?

In earlier model years this was a 15 minute mod, but they changed the set up completely when HD went with the beefy 49mm forks.

Searched everywhere for a bracket but none seem compatible with the curved mount on the light stem itself. I want to keep the stock lights.

Appreciate any thoughts there.

Didn’t the “Dynas” use 49mm forks?

This is one of those "picture worth 1000 words" deals, and since I can't post attachments yet I'll have to rely on a dealer fix, if there even is one. I might have to buy a set of 2019 lights to do what I want to do.

Those are all great clamps for straight post mounted lights, but they wouldn't work with the '21 signals. You'd have to see them to understand.

I figure it shouldn't be difficult to find a more or less new set from a 2015 take-off, probably my only option.
