So I did a tail delete a while back, but I didn’t post it cause I hated how it looked. So yesterday I finally got around to working on that again. Plate on the right side, left side is for my parking permit at work. I used the threaded holes by the shocks.

As good a use of the redundant threads as I’ve seen (if you’re not carrying luggage, that is). Neat work, too.

Looks good. What size bolt is that? Interested in doing the same.
Thanks.

10x1.25mm (length as needed)

@Burke has already answered that question in one of the other 3 posts where you questioned it. You must've missed it.

10x1.25mm metric thread and the length would be as needed for your application.

Hope that helps.

What I cant understand is how to get those 4 bolts out that hold the tag bracket on under the Fender?
It's like there is another Fender Bracket under the Fender.
There is another steel section of inner fender that can be removed. It bolts to the frame under the seat. You will need to use 4 new fasteners in place of the studs.

I thought there was something under the seat that had to do with it. I just didnt take the seat off to check.
I'm going to order me a bracket to mount the tag afterwhile.
This week I will take that mess off there.
Thanks schu

What are people with the wire for the licence plate light? Do you have them over there? Are you keeping them, or getting rid?

I wired up two of those little LED screws to the license plate light wire. Glad you asked because I just noticed one of them gives off very little light compared to the other. I was worried about the quality of these things. They were only a few dollars each if I recall.

we're supposed to have a light that allows the plate to be read from at least 50ft back, maybe more depending on the state. Usually two of those little plate bolt lights work, I got a cheap LED plate frame so that I can take my plate off without rewiring the whole thing.

I re used my stock Tag Light on the TC Bro's license plate I mounted at the Bottom shock bolt mount. I just ran the wiring from the Light down the back of plate then up belt guard behind the bottom bolt then up the back of the shock and behind frame to the the connector with zip ties holding the wire along the way.
Would like to have a smaller tag light though, instead of this Big Hood hanging over the Plate. Oh well!... it will work for now until I can find a smaller light.

Not really a fan of the side-Mount plate myself - think it’s more of a US-thing. I’ve found some likely options for a regular tail tidy though -I’ll probably go the @ChopperCharles route, but without hacking off any of the OEM undertray (sacrilege in my eyes! 0:) )

I should be able to lash one of these options to the existing mount, once the plastic bit is removed (remember, our plates are a lot bigger over here - even my ‘not-quite-legal’ one!!) Then got to decide about the reg light. One of the options you’ll see has a light built in, or I could get a separate one, or even the ‘screw lights’ (a la @Schu ). I think I’m more inclined to forgo it all together tho - blank it off and leave the wire under the seat. It not a legal requirement over here apparently (although a rearward-facing reflector on the centre-line of the bike is), and I very rarely ride in the dark.

I used a similar bracket that was intended for mounting on the lower left shock bolt. I flipped it to the other side and mounted it to the unused hole next to the upper shock bolt. I was concerned that the light might not like the beating from the swing arm suspension on our atrocious Michigan roads. Plus that side of the bike is already used up by the exhaust system. So this way my left side is still clean. I added a swivel bracket that allows me to loosen one screw and rotate the plate horizontal if I ever get hassled about it being illegal in the vertical position.

Can’t remember who’s this was, but this’d be fine.

I'm with you Ben on the side mount plates. Not my cup of tea ( pun intended). I bought this curved frame from Dennis kirk although a little pricey$130 it's high quality .
I didn't have to cut anything but I will make a steel mount and get it powder coated this winter which seems to be coming quickly.

Keep in mind that if Ben side mounted his UK license plate he would no longer need a kickstand. I can't believe how huge those things are for motorcycles.
