Step 1: Unscrew the turn signal from under the rear fender

Step 2: Disconnect the wiring from under the seat - just unclip it and its off.

Step 3: Now you have the turn signal, bolt, and a spacer/washer with two
holes - one small and one larger

Step 4: Insert a phillips screwdriver into the hole that the wire is running
through, find the screw and remove it. The screw is quite visable under
moderate light. It can be tricky finding the screw but if you look hard,
you'll see it.

Step 5: Once the screw comes out, the "rubber spacer" can now be removed from
the turn signal. However, retain the screw which held the rubber screw
(the one described above in #4) as this is needed in putting the signal
back.

Now putting it all together:

Step 6: Invert the spacer/washer with the 2 holes (from #3) so that the
wiring runs through the larger hole.

Step 7: Use the screw (from #4) and the bolt and screw the signal back on.
You might notice the signal rotating at this point but this rotation
ends once the screw and bolt have been tightened enough.

Step 8: VOILA!! :)

Has anyone done this mod to their front blinkers? I am concerned it will look bad if the plastic doesn't line up with the faring correctly. Pics?

Hey Arif, if your bike ever gets stolen, go looking for that guy in the picture. :D

Seriously, the results of your work look outstanding.

Hey,
I took the whole back end of my F4 apart yesterday after reading your instructions. The bolt you speak of is molded into the rubber spacer. Do you cut it out? Once you do get it out, where in the blinker do you put it? The picture doesn't help me much. HELP!

To remove the rubber spacing: there is a small phillips head screw inside the hole where the wires go into the blinker. Pull the wires to the side and look inside the hole with some good light. Now unscrew the silver screw and the rubber comes off.
As per arif's instructions, to remount it, use the same silver phillips head screw to hold it on. I used some washers on the screw to help hold it.

I just did this mod to my front blinkers yesterday and I have to say it has cleaned up my front end. There is a small gap all the way around the blinker where the faring is recessed, but it still looks good.

The front blinkers are a little more difficult to do.
1. Remove the inner faring(4 metal screws and 4 plastic ones that pop out once turned about 1/2 turn).
2. Remove wind screen(to get to wires)
3. I removed the molding that goes around the speedo case to get to route the wires more easily.(this step is optional)
4. Follow arif's directions for blinker removal/rubber spacing removal/and reattachment procedure.

while looking for something else, I came across this thread and thought some of the newer folks might like seeing it.
