I've noticed a few of you out there have removed the stock rear turn signals to clean up the back end until you get an LED kit, etc. I'm in the process of doing this with my bike until I can afford the LED kit, and my question is how did you disconnect the stock signals? Is there a wiring harness that they unplug from (this is how my old street bike was setup) or did you just cut the wires and tape together? Also, some of the pics look like you just put a rubber gromet in the hole left from the signal.

Also, for those of you that have changed out your grips for all metal grips w/no rubber, are they comfortable on longer rides, and do you have any problem holding speed in hot conditions with sweaty hands? I really love some of the custom grips out there, but not sure how well they work since I ride the bike ALOT and live in Florida.

I really appreciate anyones input!

Hey there, I'm in Brandon. Got my Matte Silver about a month ago. I think I'm going to go with one of the black ones for my tail lights and turn signals instead of the LED lamp...

I've seen alot of nice aftermarket signals, small, etc. But REALLY LOVE the way the back looks with no signals, and relocator for plate. Cleans it up nice. Just trying to get by until I can buy all the kits by taking off the signals and just leaving the stock tail light and plate mount

Turn Signal removal

Hey,
Do not cut your wires, you have a new bike!

1) Remove the rear seat (Three Screws)
2) Remove the front seat (Two Screws)
3) Remove the two tiny re-usable fender rivets
4) Lift off the fender
5) Unplug the two turn signal harnesses.
6) Cover the exposed plugs with something waterproof (Heat shrink may work)
7) Remove the turn signal bolt (One per signal)

That should do it!

After Accutronix's post, it was extremely easy to remove the fender, which exposed the rear wiring harness immediately. Removing the rear signals took very little time or effort, and really cleans up the backend nice for anyone wanting a meantime solution until they get their LED eliminator kits. I've attached some pics

sounds and looks like an easy enough removal.. looks a hellova lot better. but what does it do to the function of the front signals, or does it effect em at all?

Disconnecting the rear turn signals does cause the front signals to give you a rapid blink (caused by any interuption in connection). They do still function though, and personally don't really use them anyways. Been riding for years and just got used to hand signs, and never really had much need for the signals.

Removing the rear signals is illegal here. Waiting to get the kit from RAW in, so I can get rid of them.
