Adding turn signals to a 58

#1

Post by roman » Mon Aug 06, 2018 8:48 pm

Looking for tips to add 6v turn signals. I will need to go outside the handlebars for the switch, what has worked well and what is a good flasher and placement for the flasher?
Thanks

See attached. I believe Rubone published the schematics here in the past. I’ve used the Emgo flasher with no issues. They are really delicate, so if you wire them wrong it’s toast.

Go with a 6v electronic flasher---much better than the NOS thermal flashers.

I am making a basket as stock as possible, handlebars have dimmer and horn switch already been wired, no more holes for turn signal switch, so I would like to run external. The basket has mixed year parts, 57 and 58, no provisions seen for turn signals parts other than I do have 2 front clear and 2 rear red stock bullet lights that I would like to make turn signals.

The turn signal (and spotlight switch if used) go on the right side handlebar. That wiring diagram is just one page of a seven page installation instruction set.

No problem brother. I’ve gone through hell and back with my 58. Feel free to reach out for help with pictures or how to. I got mine to stock condition pretty much.

This is great Gotnoclass . Great pics, nice pan, gives me inspiration. What switch on the handlebars did you use for the turn signals? Where did you mount the flasher?

Roman,
See attached pics. The switch is a 3 way with a center off position. It’s the one on the bottom of the handlebar strapped to the top one (spotlight).
I’ve located the flasher inside the fork tins. Also, find a picture with the correct pilot lenses, brackets and spacer required for correct installation. Feel free to PM me with additional questions.
