I searched and couldn't find an obvious answer soooooo, I have a 750 tail light and brackets necessary to fit to my 850 and of course nothing goes smooth or is easy when trying to convert anything............It looks as thought the 850 tail light fastens in two places to a bracket over the rear frame loop. The 750 tail light fits in the same place except there are two holes instead of one on the lower frame loop part of the fiberglass housing. I hope this makes sense. Anyway I am not to keen on trying to drill two new holes in my stainless fender spaced evenly and wonder if anyone has done this and how you did it. Concerns are drilling holes off center. If I want to replace the original ugly tail light I will have two holes visible in the fender. Last resort and I'm sure this is expensive, buy another stainless fender to do the conversion and this would have to be for a 750 and were they drilled or sized different. Thoughts, suggestions, how too's and general ideas all welcome. I would post pictures, but I am not very good at picture posting.
