Blinkers?

So one of my bliker mounts broke. Still works just hangs now. So legally can i take them off? I think the law is if they are there they have to work. But does that mean if it came with them they have to stay? Will it pass inspection?

I believe you can legally remove them, and use hand signals.

Seems like a dumb move to me. That is asking to get run over.

I would probably just fix the blinker but you should legally have no problem taking them off. I don't have any blinkers on my tard and I get by just fine.

Have you tried draining and replacing your blinker fluid?

by law you don't even need a brake light. I have rode custom hogs with a headlight n running light out back using hand signals with no problems.

I think they stopped using blinker fluid after 2010. You can stop drilling holes now, unless you just want to make the bike lighter, then drill away.

Actually, by law, a brake light is required. Running lights and a brake light. But a high beam/ low beam setup isn't required like I thought it was when I did my street legal conversion.
