Scott ... I REALLY appreciate your taking the time to pen that "How to..."
But, I gotta tell you that after removing the cluster of pot metal and plastic, sometimes refered to as a "tool kit", was able to get my hand up in there and felt around till I found what I was looking for.
Sure enough, the nut was dangling from the power wire for the blinker.
I used the wire as a guide and was able to thread the nut onto the shaft.
Now, I figured it would just happen again, so I removed the nut, pulled the blinker out a couple inches, put some blue thread locker on teh stem and repeated the process.
How did I tighten the nut?
I love my Craftsman stubby wrenches. I was able to get to the nut with an open end, 17mm stubby and snug it down pretty good. Between the snug and the thread locker, I think it'll hold.
It was so easy, I removed the other side just to put thread locker on it.
Reinstalled the ballast Suzuki refers to as a "tool kit" and the seat.
When I figured out I was gonna have to remove the luggage rack, I looked for an alternative route. You see, I have a GIVI top box. Anyone who has installed one knows that it would be best to use a bungee and duct tape to keep the blinke in place as opposed to removing that jigsaw puzzle.
Again, I very much appreciate you taking the time and effort to help me out.
