I don't know.A lot of folks also mount the DRC LED turn signals along with the Edge/Edge II or some other similar brand to streamline the appearance of the tail.That's what I did.You can buy the steel DRC turn signal stays or fabricate your own from steel or aluminum and paint it to match which is what I did.I guess you could unfasten the rear signals and mount them to some 90 degree brackets bolted to the subframe behind the Edge light.You could fab your own from 1/8" aluminum from a hardware store.

I think most folks use cooler replacement blinkers and chuck the stock ones.

Splurge for $20.00 or less you can get nice LED blinkers.

I spent $15.99 for these blinkers and mounted them to the plastic tabs on the fender. Very clean install.

I installed mine yesterday and since I couldn't decide on a turn signal style I put the stockers back on for now. When I get aftermarkets I'm going to mount them to the now unused fender tabs like DougJ.

I had to mount mine on the bottom of the sub frame instead of the the top as the directions said; because the rear fender pushed down the stock turn signals arms and made the signals droop down with the (stay bracket) from wheeling cycle supply. When I mounted the drc on the bottom it worked fine with the stockers, but there is a gap between the rear fender and tail light????? :thumbsup:

I also ordered the $4.00 blinker stays. DHL said they should arrive Monday from DRC.

I did the exact same thing. On the exhaust side I drilled a new hole up higher to keep the turn signal away from the exhaust.

I also picked up a set of blinkers at cycle gear and they fit great. Can't beat it for $14 or $15 bucks.
