Default rear reflector conversion mod how you think it would work???

Hello so today on my ride into work(45 mins) i was doing my random thinking that i seem to do when i ride and i was thinking about what kind of unique mods i could do to my 90 kat 750. mostly i was thinking about getting rid of the rear reflector below the taillight. i was just going to pull the entire black trim off but dont really like the look of it like that so i wanted to figure out what i could replace it with so i figure could i pull the reflector out and cut the opening alittle bit and then stick some turn signal bulbs in there anf use that as my rear turn signals. was just curiour if you guys new if it would work or not thanks for the help

What exactly do you mean when you say "rear reflector?"

So, you wanna chop the shovel. That's what that mod is called.
