I have many pictures that I will post on Monday - no Tuesday; Monday I have a high stakes golf tournament (my other passion since I was 9 years old).
Couple of things - I bought the Lucas light and blinker kit from Brent and it is a very easy plug and play installation. Even though it is a little on the expensive side, it is a quality mod.
Anyone who buys the OEM Triumph sissy bar (I got mine from Scott at MADSS) I can 100% tell you that it comes with everything you need to mount it in the kit. You do NOT need a grab rail as well. It comes with a sort of grab rail which is called a Dresser Bar that you permanently install. Then it is just 4 bolts to put it on and take it off. Yes I took pictures of this setup as well.
One of the things I was concerned with was if my thumbscrews for my seat would still work with the permanent Dresser bar installed. Well, I'm happy to report that they still work very easily with the Solo Seat and Rack and the K&Q seat even with the sissy bar installed.
Time Saving Note: If you are going to use the K&Q seat with the sissy bar you will need to put the sissy bar on last or you will not be able to get to the thumb screws. No big deal just remember - the sissy bar goes on last and comes off first.
Yes BonneLass I used Blue LocTite on everything!
