Are '15 front turn signals the same mount as prior years?

Are 2015 front turn signals the same as prior years? Specifically, the base where it mounts to the fairing. I'm looking to install something lower profile, closer to the fairing so the turn signal doesn't hit the ground if (when) I drop the bike which then breaks the fairing.

One option is to mount an aftermarket low profile or surface mount signal. Another option is to cut down an OEM turn signal to something a lot shorter. A third option is to use an adapter plate in the fairing and then mount an after market turn signal.

There are plenty of products out there for prior years, but very little which says it fits the '15.

When you say they mount on the fairing, do you mean the silver part under the fairing? That's where they mount on my '08. Pics might help.

When I got mine used, the original owner had taken the front signals off saying that they had dried out and were cracking. After looking at the mounting holes, I picked up a pair on eBay for $15 that go on the rear of a '13-15 Ninja 300. They fit perfectly and don't stick out much past the fairing and the part of the signal that goes in the hole is flexible rubber.

Wish I could help you - I can't remember for sure, so I looked at my pics of the '15 and I can't make out whether it's different or not...!
