    A suicidal elm tree jumped out in front of my line ascending moose mountain this weekend and gave my right directional the barest hint of a kiss...nothing so rugged as to even break the lens but I took it off to see if I could sort out the offroad smooch. I cannot.

    Presently the right hand side light pod is askew having been bent back...light still works but my question is....how do I fix the damn thing so it slides back to its tree fetching and demure OEM position?

    Take off the plastics and there are two screws and a push pin I believe. It'll come off pretty far to do the repair.

    New light. $80. I’ve broken some. Greg the pole is exiting the Africa twin scene and has some up in the market.

    Find the install instructions for the OEM aux power socket. Not a step by step for what you need, but they will get you to a place you get to all of the bits of the turn signal. You're after the RIGHT inner panel cover. About step#12, do to the RIGHT what they say to do to the LEFT.

    Some of the first steps can be ignored, of course. You don't need to mess with the battery or anything under the seat. The middle cowel can be removed by taking out the front allen on the tank side cover, so those side cover(s) stay on and nothing under the seat need be fussed with.

    Here 'tis:

    I'm not saying this is the only way to do it, but A way to do it. I had my 'inner panel covers' off during the accessory power socket install, so I know the instructions WILL get you to where you need to go.
