Rear turnsignal wiring route

So I have my new OEM turn signals now, but the bike (1985 Rebel ) came (to me) without any. Can anyone provide a picture or description of how the wiring is routed to the point of connection?

The wires are routed to a plastic box under the tail light.

So my problem is the bike had no rear turn signals when I bought it, so I have no install point of reference.
Do they run under the fender lip, or down the fender bracket? That... is my dilemma.

ok understood - they run under the fender in some channels formed by a flange that is welded inside the fender - you may want to remove the rear tire to do the job - once you have some room to work you will be able to see where the wires go

When you lift the bike to get the rear wheel off, be sure to lift only the frame. It's easy to put the lift point(s) under the exhaust too, but that will damage them. As I recall, it's pretty easy to bend the tab that holds the wires under the fender.

Member dencor usually has a bunch of used parts, and his prices are very reasonable. You can send him a PM and see if he has what you need.
