I ran the wiring up under the space behind the passenger peg mount, then right behind the side panel, and back under the fender. The lead for the license light comes out from the tail light assy, which I took off to get at it easier - 4 bolts, no problem. There's actually a sub panel under the fender, so I ran the wire under that to protect it. You could also find the wiring for the light somewhere under the seat and tap into that too, but I didn't want to start hacking away under there (yet ).
When I do the integrated tail light mod, I'll post a new page on the site with all the photos of the wiring, including the side mount.
ao, did you do the fabrication yourself? I was wondering, can you come up with something to cover the front of this bike?
I hate the fact the front is wide open and gets dirty quick. I will see it more, once I ride the dam bike. I pick it up tomorrow.
I would love to cover the front of this bike like on corbin site but not like that I love to make something either in chrome or texture black.
Is it possible...Pls let me know...Thx.
We've got to be really careful about covering up the front of the bike - remember that it's an air-cooled motor, and airflow to the front cylinder is a major issue.
The best thing I can recommend is cutting a piece of black plastic or metal mesh/screen to fit between the front downtubes which will offer some protection while maintaining the flow of cool air to the motor.
i finished my rear fender cleanup project i used thes led pods that are made to be accent light on motoercycles so there water proof and all that. i orderd orange and replaced the big chrome blinkers with them. they cost $9.00 off ebay for two and shipping so here are some pics let me know what you guys think
I called a local licence plate agency, they didn't know so gave me the number to an office in Olympia. That office informed me that it is not legal to side mount the plate. I haven't had a chance to call around some more. I think I'll try a couple biker organizations. It may be a law, but not strickly enforced. I'll let ya know what I find out.
Brian, it was actually kind of funny. The cop I talked to seemed as though he didn't even know motorcycles had side mount plates. He would not commit ot anything other than it is illegal. Like anything else though, a bad day and a cop can and will find anything to get you for. I would think that it would depend on the police in a specific area. Some are more forgiving about mior things that really have no business being illegal anyway.
