Yep - you can get the frame in chrome as well.

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 like the look of those led pods. Are they available locally? That would be an easier set up than waiting on the integrated tail light. Do they come in chrome?

Just recieved my side mount plate from performance edge. Nicely done :wings: Looks very easy to install and can have a LED pod installed to have a light on the plate.

WaRaider,
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, you are right. I went to the local police department and they also said it is illegal.

WaRaider,
Did you happen to ask if it is enforced or overlooked? Sometimes little things are overlooked until you screw up big time, then they throw the book at ya....

Thanks,
Brian

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.
