Here is something a buddy of mine came up with at the car show that we attend every wednesday. It was a simple elegant solution to lower the turn signals at the front of the bike to lower the profile a little bit and streamline it, let me know what you think of how this looks. Also, when moving the turn signals around, you may notice that they feel a little lose. One method to alieve this is sticking a small piece of rubber in there to tighten up the o-ring a little bit (or whatever you can think of), anything that will fill it in a little more. I noticed that it was a little loose before moving them down, so this was a very minor concern, but very easily remedied.

So you just loosened the bolts and slid the signals down? It looks good going to try it on mine.

I like it... I still don't like the casting look of the triple trees tough :(

Not too sure, turns kinda remind me of a larger cruiser light bar setup with them down.... I think maybe they blend in a little better at stock height, JMO. I do agree with predator, wish Honda would have atleast polished the bottom side, I know a solid triple would have cost them much more to manufacture, but I think this was just a rush to get the Fury released, and probably overlooked.

If the Fury really takes off, I'm sure down the road someone will come out with a solid triple tree, and others are already working on a "cover". Until then, we just have to be creative, or grin a bear it.. Part of buying the "new craze" :cool:

Think if i changed those out to clear or smoked blinker covers, it might look a little better... I didn't like it at first actually, then I just sat there and looked at the profile from the side... and it really pulls it back, when I get home from work... I'll take another pic from the side.

The casting underneath the triple tress do sux..
so does the kick stand..

Anyone know where to get a chrome replacement kick stand?
Would a chrome aftermarket VTX1300 work?

I think that with the turns as high up as possible, Honda was trying to emphasize the length of the forks as much as possible. Going for that long chopper look.

Got all 4 clear lenses off ebay for 17 bucks if you decide to go that route. Bulbs I bought at auto store.

It does give it a longer chopper look... check out the pics I just took since I got home, also I took a cockpit point of view... kind of makes you feel like you're flying because you don't have the turn signals in front of you to distract you as much.

I'll be damned ... that looks *great*!! I wouldn't a thought a lowering the turn signals in a million years lol ... but it does make the forks look longer; maybe 'cause you can see the top of the forks and the bottom now as sort of all one unit, with the signals just being stuck in the middle instead of sorta takin' over the top end. Just my take on it ... gonna give it a try.

The signals just loosen and slide down? Nothing more to it than that?

Pretty much... u'll have to loosen the spiral holder on the left side of the bike in order to get those cables out, it's pretty tight, besides that... works great and is pretty easy. It will seem loose after you get done, but... rode 100 miles since changing them and they are still in the same spot.

Good luck with that... and yea, it feels like a totally different experience riding it now... seriously, feels like you're flying!

Let me know how it feels if you do it :)

BTW, have mine about an inch off the bottom bar... can go all the way down and it looks good... personal preference...

I did that too but put them back up, just didn't look right for some reason. Real easy to do to see if you like it or not. Leave them loose and look at it awhile in both places up and down.:)
