I have a 2012 Bonnie T100.I would like to change the factory tail lamp/signal assembly to the better looking Lucas tail lamp. I like the Maund adapter kit,but am wondering if I should just get the LED lamp assembly from Bellacorse and drill some holes in the fender.At the same time I'd like to relocate the signals to the shock mounts using the much smaller aftermarket type. My concern is that they'll get damaged by a passenger getting on and off the bike. Any input would be greatly appreciated.
Before you get the LED assembly, take a look at this thread:
If you carry passengers you may want to mount the turn signals a little further back than the rear shock mounts. I have a Triumph grab rail on mine, which is mounted to a dresser rail. I have relocated my turn signals to the point where the grab rail bolts onto the dresser rail. They are rougly level with the rear end of the seat. The side of the rear fender is also a good mounting point if you don't mind drilling a hole in each side.
For the signals, I just used bookshelf brackets that I painted black. I did have to cut and redrill them. Very sturdy and in no danger of being in the way for a 2nd rider.
I'm afraid, unless someone has come up with another idea, you'll have to drill the fender to make the Lucas light look right. I tried and tried, but to get it level, I couldn't use the pre-existing holes. I did a DIY that the moderators put in the stickies. I think it's on page 3.
Edit: oops, it was pg 2. Here's a link. Hope it helps
