rear turn signal question

I'm going to be mounting some Givi Trekker cases...This involves moving the rear turn signals...I can't quite figure out how they come off and..of course..I don't want to break anything by being ham fisted...Anyone out there ever done this?

Yeah it's pretty simple. The taking off anyway. There is a plate on the inside of each signal held in place by one screw (Phillips I believe). Remove the screw and pop that plate out and the signal is free to be wiggledout of the hole.
Assuming your cases came with directions to relocate them, the rest should be covered there.

Luck favors the prepared.

Please take notes on how many new curse words you invent trying to wiggle them back into the new relocation plate.

spent around 3 hours this afternoon (5/23/14) and got the Givi mounts and cases put on...repositioning the rear turn signals definitely involved removing the rear fender..but was fairly easy..you have to unplug them from the wiring harness also...a bit of a stretch to get all the wiring back in place..but it all works out nicely...the Givi mounts and parts went on smoothly enough..if you remember not to tighten everything down snuggly until after it's all together...some pulling..grunting and then finally it just all comes together...the cases look pretty good..but I'm considering getting some paint and painting the aluminum parts matching the "pearl solar yellow"...
