I took off the saddle bag mounts, and replaced the tail light with an earlier (smaller) unit today. The tail light that came with the bike was an unsightly large unit with separate brake and tail light bulbs. It had suffered from the common error of putting too big a bulb in the tail light socket which over heats and damages the tail light lens. Got this good condition early tail light unit off E-bay for $38, including shipping.


Had to do a little work on the turn signals too. The right turn signal mounting stem was bent backwards sightly. Easy enough to bend back into place with a small cheater bar. The left turn signal housing internal mounting hardware had suffered some slight damage (from a tip-over I suspect) but was easily bent back into shape.
