  4. Make about a 25 mm (1 in) long slit in the end of the conduit. Cut one wire back about 12 mm (½ in) from the end of the conduit. Cut the second wire back about 6 mm (¼ in) from the end of the conduit.
  5. Slip the 50.8 mm (2 in) long section of encapsulating (dual wall) shrink tube (5) over the conduit and wires.
WARNING
Be sure to follow manufacturer's instructions when using the UltraTorch UT-100 or any other radiant heating device. Failure to follow manufacturer's instructions can cause a fire, which could result in death or serious injury. (00335a)
  • Avoid directing heat toward any fuel system component. Extreme heat can cause fuel ignition/explosion resulting in death or serious injury.
  • Avoid directing heat toward any electrical system component other than the tubing on which heat shrink work is being performed.
  • Always keep hands away from tool tip area and heat shrink attachment.
  1. Use a heat gun or suitable radiant-heating device to shrink the tubing to the wires and conduit.
  2. Assemble the switches and switch housings to the handlebar per service manual instructions, tucking the shrink-sealed wire ends back inside the switch housings. Repeat on the opposite side of the vehicle.
  3. Repeat for the other turn signal.

INSTALLATION
1.
ALL models: See Figure 2. Fasten the mirror stalk to the front brake master cylinder housing (9) with the acorn nut (8) and lockwasher (6) from the kit, but do not fully tighten at this time.
2.
See Figure 3. Fasten the mirror stalk to the clutch hand lever bracket (9) with the acorn nut (8) and lockwasher (6) from the kit, but do not fully tighten at this time.
3.
2012 and Later Dyna Models with Turn Signal Wires Inside the Handlebar: See Figure 5. Replace the reflector socket of the turn signal as follows:
a.
Remove the turn signal lens (5) and bulb (4).
b.
Pry the reflector socket (3) and grommet from (2) the turn signal housing (1).
c.
Remove the socket and wire from the the grommet and housing.
d.
Route the harness of the new socket through the grommet and housing.
e.
Install the grommet and socket into the housing.
f.
Install bulb in socket.
g.
Install lens to the housing.
NOTE
See Figure 6. The mounting brackets are stamped with either LH (left side) or RH (right side). Be sure to install the correct bracket on the correct side.
Both left side and right side turn signal lamps are identical.
The wire harness exiting the turn signal lamp has a flat cross-section, similar to the wire slot (3) near the lamp end of the stalk.
For best appearance, align the harness along its full length to determine the flat side that will lie against the stalk when the lamp is attached. Insert the harness into the slot in that orientation to avoid a half-twist in the wire harness at the lamp.

Figure 6. Installation of Mounting Bracket and Wire Harness
4.
ALL models: See Figure 6. Carefully feed the length of wire from the turn signal lamp into the stalk through the wire slot (3).
5.
Install the screw (4) and lockwasher (5) into the stalk and through the hole. Position the turn signal lamp against the end of the stalk and thread the screw into the lamp housing. Do not fully tighten at this time.
6.
Place the mounting bracket in position on the lower fork below the triple clamp (6). Align the lamp to face forward, and parallel to the ground. While holding the alignment, remove the assembly and tighten the lamp mounting screw (4) to 8–9 N·m (70–80 in-lbs).
7.
Install the mounting bracket assembly to the lower fork with a pinch bolt (7), ensuring:
a.
That the lamp is facing forward and parallel to the ground.
b.
Verify that the exiting wire is centered in the wire-notch (3) at the stalk base and is not being pinched by the stalk against the fork bracket.
8.
Tighten the pinch bolt (7) to 8–9 N·m (70–80 in-lbs).
9.
Repeat Steps 4-8 for the opposite side.
10.
Remove the cap screw and washer (8) that mount the front brake line(s) to the underside of the lower fork bracket, and set aside.
11.
Loosely install the P-clamp (9) and the brake line with the cap screw and washer (8).
NOTE
P-clamp orientation should be opposite of the brake-line mounting.
12.
See Figure 7. Route the wires behind the fork tubes. Feed both signal wires through the P-clamp in the direction opposite that from which they originated, so the wire is heading back toward its own turn signal lamp.
NOTE
Make sure the wires are not pulled tight when the handlebars are turned full to the left or right fork stops.
13.
Pull the wires through the P-clamp so they are just pulled taut and tighten the cap screw to 11.3–13.6 N·m (8.3–10 ft-lbs). The wires from the right-side turn signal should now be toward the right side of the vehicle, and the left-side wires toward the left.
Figure 7. Routing the Wires
14.
See Figure 6. Install the socket terminals from the the turn signal harnesses into the correct lamp side connector halves following the instructions in the appropriate service manual. Unless noted differently on removal, Left side (white connector) (11): Right side (black connector) (10):
a.

20.
Remove the main fuse.
WARNING
Be sure that steering is smooth and free without interference. Interference with steering could result in loss of vehicle control and death or serious injury. (00371a)
  • Be sure wires do not pull tight when handlebars are turned fully to left or right fork stops.
21.
Use cable straps from the kit as needed to secure the harnesses so they do not interfere with steering function, or become entangled or pinched. Secure any excess harness length with a cable strap so it can be stowed inside the steering head.
22.
Push the wire harness back up inside the frame, behind the steering head. Position the harness shield (1) to the underside of the top bar with the tabs (2) inside, and push upward until the tabs engage the holes (3) on each side of the frame.
