SOmeone here wrote that they put the front turn signals into the air inlets of his fairing.
Another guy made a bracket to move his real signals in tight, next to the license plate.

Are there federal or state legal requirements for turn signal placement, width?
(Why risk a pull-over, especially if some tests show that certain placements are safer than others?)

Not to mention the fact that those laws are up to interpretation by your local law enforcement. I've heard from "foreign" (overseas, Canadian) riders that we have it pretty easy when it comes to actual enforcement of equipment violations. My KZ doesn't even have signals (haven't made time to remedy that in the last 3 or 4 years, I keep meaning to do that ;) ) and IN requires them, but I've never been pulled over. I do try to use hand signals when LEOs are present, though :p.

As long as you're riding sensibly nary a word is said.

Although I've been fortunate enough to avoid the law, anybody on a 600SS around here will get pulled over for pretty much anything.

Just ride a 500 and you'll be fine to do anything :)

Here in Ontario, CANADA we do not have to have turn signals to ride the bike, BUT you have to have turn signals to SELL the bike (you need them for a safety certificate).
