Howdy folks. I’ve had my Vit for a week now and it’s been the longest week ever wanting to get rid of the OE plate and turn signal set up.  We’re all waiting (impatiently) for the aftermarket to catch up with this great bike but in the interim, I went down to my local bike parts and accessories store and for about $30, put this together. It’s not as svelt or clean as what I’ve had on previous bikes but it’s so much better than the stock set up.  Overall, install took me about 3-hours including a run to HomeDepot for some longer bolts.

This is the universal plate holder and 'L' brackets I got from the shop.

Finished product.

All in all, not bad for $30. I’m stoked on the results and to see the true lines of this great bike start to re-emerge with this mod.
