Unhappy Mount point for new front turn signals?

Hey everyone!

I am hoping you can help me out. I bought the m.blaze-pin turn signals to replace the stock front signals but I realized I have no idea where to mount them on the front of the bike. I was hoping to put them on the front forks somewhere, but I don't know. Maybe I could get a mount from ebay? I tried reviewing the install instructions here, but they don't really help tell me the size of the hole they go into. Feeling quite lost and out of my element.

Pictures online of them mounted look like

So I found some possible clamps on eBay, would these work? I am looking at them but don't understand where the light would go once the clamp is on the fork


I am trying to mimic the mount for the Joker Machine Vegas I guess?

Is this the right track?

@JimInOz : Thanks for the annotations on the drawings, this helps immensely! I ordered that set and expect to get them in ~7-10 days. Will report back on how it goes once I get them.

I moved my reflectors and put indicators here. They actually screwed straight in, same size threadand all. I reckon yours might too. Just make sure they stick out far enough to be seen effectively from in front.

@Fletch where are those screwed in? Would you mind taking another picture close up so I can see? I am going to review the m.light pin instructions to see if they are the same size as that to screw in. Also, how did you run the wiring, just up the forks and secured with zip ties? Thank you for the information.

EDIT: those tires are legit, ME888?

EDIT2: Also, which fork boots are those? (I've seen a couple posted on this forum). I want to install some but it looks very complicated to do.

I hope these pics help. (sorry for the poor quality, snapped just before heading off to work)


The tyres are Shinko 777.


The fork boots were installed by the dealer at my request before I bought the bike. I'm sure they're just generic ones but I have no ideawhat brand or where they got them.

Well yeah, sure, just about any light will look super bright if filmed at dusk!

But.. but... you're not worried that this super bright light then will cause all kinds of accidents behind/infront of you?? Blinding everyone right and left, causing epileptic seizures and what not?!
With great super bright lights comes a big responsibility you know!
