    Default Poor mans tail tidy

    My bike was rear ended when i bought it, so i had parts to chop and replace anyway, so i ended up with a really easy mod

    First off cut your fender, plenty of threads of here how to do this


    Then take your old licence plate mount and drill two holes using the plate as a guide


    Then Weld on some washers to mount your indicators to, i used the washers that held the original indicators on, then a quick lick of paint

    Find some longer screws for the plate to mount your bracket from underneath


    Mount your indicators then screw on the nuts to the extended bolts under the tail


    Havnt done a licence plate light yet but thats as easy as using these

    And all done, tail tidy for next to nothing

    When we make these via the home made route, every one takes on a different look. Me, I located the stock signals to the reflector brackets, put clear lenses on them with chrome plated amber bulbs. I made two very small unobtrusive brackets to mount the plate high up, tucked under the tail. No lens light either. ;-)

    This is how it looked in 2006 after I first did it. Plate is gone and address has changed, so don't sweat it.


    How it looks today with the Smuggler. Note how low profile it is from the side.


    Doesn't look bad with red tail light and amber lenses either. Another old plate, don't worry bout it. Also different address again.
