Relocating front turn signals on 1090RR

Ever since I got the Brutale, one of the mods constantly on my mind was elimination of stock bug antenna mirrors and installing bar end mirrors. One of the complications were the turn signals which are located in the mirror assembly and while the mirrors were minimally functional I kept procrastinating. Well, during a ride on the freeway, no bumps or potholes, my right side mirror decided to jettison itself. It was like a sign from above to get on with the mod.

A clean application is to relocate turn signals to left and right headlamp brackets except that I prefer to drill or irreversibly modify as little as possible (see pick below).

As soon as I got home, I pulled off the stock instrument cover. It has LED (?) lights already installed. The idea is to connect turn signal leads to the wiring inside the instrument cover and utilize those lights as turn signals. Questions:
a) where can I get an extra factory plug connector?
b) can the lights be swapped out to yellow?

Not sure about the colour change..

You can get converter leads to change the MV plugs so you dont have to cut them. I have aftermarket on the rear and used leads that came with the indicators. I think most big brand indicator suppliers offer them.

Have a look on ebay or site sponsors; design corse, evolution bike etc

You might want to check California Law about turn signal placement...

I mean with what you folks are doing about plastic straws, you might find yourself on death row...

I thought about consulting with my attorney prior to doing this mod

I believe Kommiefornia law requires 9 in space between the turnsignals. except for color of the flashers, this application looks stock enough to pass.

Bogie & Ed - thank you for the leads (pun intended). Cyclerminal is closed until 8/12. I'll sort out what I need by then.

I want to thank Ed for sending me the terminals. They worked great, gave me opportunity to put dielectric grease into all connectors involved. Turn signals have been rewired and are working through existing lights in the instrument cover. I like that they look stock and no drilling or irreversible mods have been made (except that I am missing stock right mirror glass but who cares...) Brutale is road ready again and thats what counts.

Thanks, I do agree they should be yellow. I'll try to figure something out. BTW, I plan to wrap the instrument cover so I will most likely end up pulling the lights out. Perhaps then I can get them wrapped or sprayed in yellow, will see.
