    Since this was originally posted in 2006, did Suzuki change the license plate for the 2007 models so that we do not have to cut it off? I have not looked at mine yet but am worried about cutting it off.

    I've heard of some folks unbolting theirs. I'm not sure if doing this on 2007 models or later will leave a big hole, but that is what happens if you unbolt the ones on the 2006 models.

    I just completed my 07, it can be unbolted butyou must make a rather large fitted plate to cover the opening.

    The supplied bolts were to short so I used stainless steel 1/4-20's, 1-1/2" long, you will need 2. Got 'em at Lowe's.

    I just chucked a 1/4-20 tap in my drill and ran it through the metric threads re-tapping it to 1/4-20.

    I put a nylok nut on first as a spacer, that worked great to make room for the wiring to the stock turn signals,
    then the Cycle House plate holder, then finished it with another nylok nut.

    Plenty sturdy, great looking and by using a nut as a spacer, I won't have to go back into the tail piece to hold the bolt-head if I remove the plate holder in the future.

    As far as fear cutting your bike, don't sweat it; just go ahead. Its just a piece of plastic. Watch those wires though.

    Thanks for the "how to", really made things a lot easier!

    I just installed the "new" DLP bracket on my '07 LE. Everything went smooth until I attempted to use the hardware shipped with the bracket. While wrenching the bolt back into the top hole it broke in half ! I was able to drill it out pretty easily, but for the price of this you'd think they'd ship some usable hardware. Just a warning for anyone getting the "new" DLP bracket, save yourself some time and get some stronger & slightly longer bolts!

    I am in the middle of doing this mod and I am at the point of removing the rear fender. Everything has been easy to this point but I don't seem to have ready access to the fasteners under the side panels. I can see the fasteners but the side panels don't seem to 'pop off' as easily as in Lamont's instructions. I am having trouble accessing them. Any advice?

    I'm assuming your talking about the fasteners near the seat? When I did this, I just popped the side panels out where the allen screws are. You can get an allen wrench into the screw head if you pull the side panel out slightly while unscrewing it. Go in from the underside of the panel.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks. Sure enough, when I tried the other side, the side panel did pop right out so I figured out what was going on. Later I went out and bought stonger, longer bolts but broke one off anyway. Anyone have any advice on how best to drill out the bolt?

    I believe both versions are now made of .100 stainless steel.

    I used this post to install the Baron plate mount with led frame. had no problem at all, took about 2 hours. Nice to finally get that ugly piece of plastic of My 9's tail.



    I'm not alright, but I'm ok!

    Just installed the Baron version and took me about an hour, just being a total novice. Lucky enough to have this site for reference and to have different people show how it should go gave me the nads to pull it apart and take the hacksaw to it. Suzuki should make the debeav the stock look.

    I can't believe all the help that you get on this site. Thanks

    I just installed one of these this morning on a friends new '08. Cut the beavertail off and the re is a metal "lip" that extends down about 1/4" or so under there. The plate bracket would not sit flat against the mounting area under there. We had to angle the dang thing, and even then, the supplied bolts were not long enough. We barely made it work by not using any washers OR the stock flat metal piece on top. Kind of a half assed way to get it on there, but it did not install as it should have and the hardware was not correct.

    THEN, I referred to this thread for directions since none came with the kit, and THE *******G PICS ARE GONE!!

    The damn Clear Alternatives tail that came with the DLP order also is defective. All the red LEDs on the right side are out!

    You can use the text description. That's what I did. I'm not that good mechanically and it turned out perfectly! If you can do Ikea, you can do this w/o pix!

    I finally did it!



    I'm just alittle worried about the turn signals moving because on the 08's they have a notch that hold them in place and on the bracket from DLP the holes are just round not notched. Went together perfect except that little hiccup. Very happy with the outcome!

    Just finished my installation of mine today. Used a little different steps on mine tat made it really easy. Used a grinder to grind down the tab on the plastic washers smooth. Used a flat and lock washer when mounting it to the plate holder. Was able to keep straight and tighten very easy. Got a 2 set LED (white) from a friend at the honda shop and mounded it to the bottom of the plate and routed cable with turn signal cable back to the plate light junction. Tightened every thing up and it works and looks great. Thanks to all for the info and ideas as I read and used all. Have one leftover white LED if anyone is getting ready to do this.

    This is a pretty easy deal but I'll post this anyway as it may help some of you.

    First thing you need to do is pop off the seat. If you need a picture for this then take this bracket to your dealer for the install.

    Then you want to pop off your passenger seat or cover, what ever you have on there now.



    Now you want to go ahead and pull off the tail section. The first time I did this I pulled off the side covers but you really don't need to. Just pop the corner of each side cover so you can get into the bolt behind the side cover. This will save you a lot of time. Here's the picture of the bolts that you need to take out. There are two Philip head bolts that you have to access from under the fender, don't forget those.





    Now that you have all the bolts out just slide the tail section toward the back of the bike and unplug the tail light and set off to the side.



    Now unplug the turn signals and plate light and push the wires back down the holes and out of the way.



    Now that the wires are out of the way you can cut that big hunk of plastic off. The first time I used a die grinder but this time I used a hacksaw blade just to see if it would work and it worked pretty darn good.

    Just cut it flush with the bottom of the plastic plate.




    Remove the two stock bolts and replace with new longer bolts from kit. Tighten bolts and put spacer nuts on the back side of bolts.




    Install lights to plate bracket and run wires through stock holes.
    There are a bunch of different lights that will work on this bracket and you could reinstall the stock lights if you wanted to. Some plate frames have lights built into them too so the lights are up to you. If you use lights other than stock you will need to splice the connectors to your new lights.




    Now all you need to do is put it all back together the same way it came apart. You no longer look like a stock bike,
