Doh! I have to move the left rear blinker.

Hey all,

I am putting some homemade aluminum panniers on a Givi PL532 rack. Of course, I did the exhaust side first because that is the "hard" side right? Everything went fine until I went to locate the other side and low and behold, my pannier hits the turn signal. Not by much, but enough that I think it may cause some issues. If the turn signal was 1/4" shorter it would not be an issue.

I know people have talked about relocating the turn signal with some other cases. Is there a kit that can be purchased? Anyone done something different, like a DIY type thing?

Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks

Just wanted to say thanks for the link. I did this and it worked perfect...and it's extremely easy!

I just left the ribbed section on the bike and removed (2) rows of the ribs with an exacto knife.

Thanks again!

That was a pretty clever fix, eh?
