    Hey all, I am looking for some kind of option to extend my rear turn signal lights so I can install my saddle bags towards the back of my cycleracks rack. At this point, I have the bags more in the passenger area of the bike, and would like them pushed back more if I can. Here's currently how my bike is set up:





    With the pannier holders in place, the taillights fold in, so basically, they don't fit, and I really don't want to have to shorten the lights if I can help it.



    I have looked, and come up dry. Does anyone have any idea if these things exist and where I can find them? I suppose making my own would be easy enough, but if I can get something off the shelf, I would rather.



    Thanks all,

    Dan

    Happy Trails makes them for their pannier racks.

    Not sure, but they probably sell them seperately. Not much to them, just a piece of 8" long, 1" x 1/4" aluminum bar stock with a big hole in each end. Holes are 6 1/2" on center, which puts your signals about even with your tail light.



    Their method is pretty simple. You could probly make your own in a few minutes once you see them.



    I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

    Powdercoated '87 frame, extended swingarm, YZ fork legs, ATV tire, 14/55, XT350 tank, spliced quick-release seat, disc brake conversion, beeg headlight, beeger rack, Lizrdcooler, Lizrdventz and bunch of other stuff all covered in invisible ink.

    Heck, you aren't kidding. I even have some of that aluminum bar stock. If that's all there is to them, I guess that'll work. Thanks!
