Trick Dual Sport Kits for CA bikes
Posted January 02, 2006 - 11:19 AM
When I looked into it a few years ago I thought I came across some info that stated the turn signals needed to be spaced a minimum of 13" (?) apart to meet state requirements. I would like to switch to the TDS kit, but don't want to give the forest rangers or police an easy reason to ticket my bike. Anyone ever been pulled over in CA for this reason?

Hell... For a long time (10-12 months) I just put a strreet legal subframe (w/plate) from my friends 98 to my 99 without even bothering to hook up lights, horn, mirrors, etc. I got pulled over by a park ranger one time because the plate was mounted high under the rear fender (not visible at all), even with my girlfriend on the back(illeagal with only a permit), and no insurance. He just told me to remount it in a visible area, and sent me on my way

I like the TDS UFO fenders because the turn indicator lights are protected. If most of your riding will be dirt and not street, I wouldn't worry about it.
Dale at TDS will sell you a different setup for lighting if you want. Give him a call.
