Is there a secret to getting these things off? Trying to remove signals on my 02 Sportster, removed the nut in the fender. Now nothing will happen can't get the damn thing off

Mine is a 2015 but If it's anything like mine, you need to take the light bucket off the mount then it'll all come apart, the bucket is threaded and the mount slides off giving access

Yeah you gotta remove the strut cover and there's another nut/or place to stick a wrench, can't remember exactly but once the fender is loose and the strut cover gone you should be able to see it

No that's not a dumb question... But I bet there is a bolt or a nut behind it... Good luck and let us know what you find out....

LOL well DAMN the factory must have welded them on since you couldn't unbolt them...I wonder why they did that on your bike???.. Glad you finally got them off.....

I guess thats why none of the exploded diagrams made sense. It felt so damn good to throw those things across the garage.
