How to umount OEM front turn signals?

Hello,

I see a lot of tutorials on the internet on how to remove the rear lights and how to install a fender eliminator and aftermarket turn signals but unless I'm missing something here I don't get why most of the people don't also want to change the front turn signal to match the rear ones.

I took a close look at the OEM front signals and I can't find a way to umount them unless I need to remove some other bits of the bike.

Anyone knows an easy way to accomplish this?


Thank you!

Naked version. I see that is only one nut but there is no way I can reach that one nut without disassembling other parts (maybe).

Its easiest to access if you move lcd display and headlight out of the way.

thanks, I was under the impression that I had to remove something out of the way in order to remove the turn signals.

thanks.
