Front turn signals?

Postby flatblack » Mon May 21, 2007 9:54 pm

Bike is an otherwise box-stock '79 CB650. Front turn signals are the small, round type from Cx360s of the mid-70s, mounted to chrome stalks attached to the headlight pivot.

This are not stock. But what is?

I've seen two different parts books, both showing the front pair should be the larger rectangular signals, which I have on the rear. I can ID and presumably order the mounts for these signals. But I can't figure out how/where they mount.

Anybody got a box-stock '79 (US) can tell me what I need? Post a couple of pix of what you have and I'll change your oil for free. :)

I'll take a pic when I get off work tonight (around midnight).

Instead of changing my oil, would you change my rear tire's tube? :lol:

The brackets mount to holes in the lower fork yoke (the outer holes in this shot). M6 thread I'm sure.


The brackets are sheet metal that wrap around the fork leg and have a flat stell bar sticking out with a tapped hole to take the indicator mounting screw. My brackets are visible in the picture linked below.

My brackets are still wrapped up freshly powdercoated, so if you want any detailed pictures let me know.

regards, Phil
