I'm trying to assemble all the hardware and pieces I need to put this AT3 back on the road. I have a luggage rack and turn signals. The signals have a M8 stud with a solid core and the wire comes out a separate hole. (These are repop signals) It appears that the signal should mount on top of the luggage rack rear bracket which is the same mount point for the rear fender. Do I need to source a longer M8 stud that goes all the way through to the inside of the fender where it is attached with a flat washer, spring washer and nut? It appears that's the only way to get all four items together. (Turn Signal to Luggage Rack to Frame to Fender) or...Are the repop signals not correct for this bike.

If I remember correctly, the OEM signals do have a solid stud and the wire comes out next to the stud as you've described. The stud also comes out of the light like 2 or 3 inches so it can go through the frame and serve double-duty... holds the signal in place and bolts the rear rack tab to the bike.

It looks like the stud on the light you have is just barely enough to go through the rack? Too short.

Thanks Mark. I kind of figured that was the case so I ordered a meter long M8 threaded rod. It never hurts to check with the experts though instead of charging blindly ahead and screwing something up.

I was wondering so did a search on ebay and found a set of used signals... they do have the long studs so my memory isn't completely shot yet!

Now where did I leave my keys? :ROFLOL

Not sure I am remembering correctly, but I thought there was a nut with a collar attached that screws into the rubber bushing holding the fender and over the 8mm stud. John
